    I am hoping that some one will be kind enough to supply a first name for either or both of these gentlemen (other service information gratefully received as well).

    Oberstleutnant von Carlowitz - I think he was the Kmdt. Reserve Infanterieregiment Nr.103 (part of the 46 Reserve Infantry Brigade; 23 Reserve Division);and

    Oberstleutnant von Scharfenort - who I have listed as Kmdt Grenadier Regiment Kronprinz (1.Ostpresssischen) Nr.1.

    I have checked on-line with out luck and I do not have access to any period reference publications.

    Thank you for the information.

    It must be Hauptmann Carl-Wilhelm v. Scharfenort as opposed to the Oberstleutant that I thought he was.

    Do you happen to have any history on his seniority and wartime service?

    I finally managed to scan a copy of the reverse of the photo I thought was Carl-Wilhelm von Scharfenort, but now I am not so sure.

    Many thanks for the additional information, this just what I was after.

    I have only just started to get into Imperial German Officers and their careers and am struggling in trying to get information.
