I found him:

Gefreiter Ludwig Rau (not Rauch)

Gefreiter Ludwig Rau served in 11th Companie, 3. Baden Infantry Regiment

His name was printed wrong as Ludwig Rauch on page 31 of the Badische Staatsanzeiger from January 1871. On page 201 of the Badische Staatsanzeiger there is the correction of his name as Ludwig Rau (not Rauch).

Wow!

How very interesting. Thank you for this additional information.

I think that the confusion stems, in part, from the fact that there clearly is a period (.) after the RAU on the medal.

Again, many thanks - the learning process never ceases.

There was a Rauch as well but his first name was Friedrich and he was awarded the civilian KFMVM
