    Hello gentlemen,

    I need your help to find some more informations about: Walter Johann Karl Wilhelm von Heinemann (*1858 - ?1928).

    Commander of the 34. Infanterie-Division (from August 1914 - April 1916), XVI. Armee-Korps.

    (On the backside is writen: "Kommandeur der 34. Inf. Div. Exzellenz v. Heinemann")

    I will be very appreciate for any information about him!

    Thanks and best regards, :cheers:

    During the war he received Red Eagle 2nd Class with Star and Oakleaves with Swords and Crown Order 1st Class with Swords, replacing his usual peacetime lower classes. He also had peacetime Brunswick House Order-Commander, Reuss Honor Cross (Younger Line) 1st Class, Ernestine House Order-Commander 1st Class, and Schwarzburg Honor Cross 1st Class. I don't find him on any of the WW1 award rolls we have been publishing.
