I am a newby and need advice on where to progress my search for a SERVICE RECORD on GENERALMAJOR VOGT.

I hope that this is the correct GMIC forum to ask for help?

I have been to Germany last month and met GM Vogt's great grandson .

To date I have obtained the following information from the family records and ahnentafel :

Ludwig VOGT

Rank Generalmajor - German Army , World War 1

Born 10.3.1873,Kaiserlautern(Pfatz)

Died 8.8.1957, Berlin,Wilmersdorf .

Buried Parkfriedhof Bln,Lichterfelde.

Awards received EK1

Any further information and particularly his service record or advice on how to progress my search will be most welcome.

I attach a photo of GM Vogt (sorry for the poor quality)

best regards, Stew

Stew ,

Generalmajormajor Vogt, a field artillery officer, was serving as a Major in the War Ministry in 1914. He commanded Feld-Artillerie-Regiment Nr. 25 from 25 February 1917 to 28 August 1918 and remained in the Reichsheer following the war where he commanded the 1. (Preußisches) Artillerie-Regiment in Königsberg from 1 October 1922 to 31 July 1925. He retired on promotion as a charakterisierter (brevet) Generalmajor on 31 July 1925.
