Researching an 1870 EK awardee


Recommended Posts


No one by that name on the 1877 list- 1st, 2nd or 2nd class on white ribbon.

It could be that he had already died by that date. Do you have any additional information such as unit?

Also, are you certain of the spelling? A Feldwebel Friedrich August Liesow (IR 20) was awarded the EK1.

Could we pin the 1870/1 EK recipient's list to the top of this forum please?

I'm pushing this up, for there isn't a pinned thread with the 1870 EK roll... but that would require someone to find it online... and I'm not aware it is to be found anywhere! The German DGO site has a hand-typed, well-readable pdf file list of the EK1 winners, made by a most diligent DGO member (who is a GMIC user as well: "NavalMark"). Probably exciting news for all those who hadn't found it before...

Thanks, Dave! I don't actually need it as I bought the list on CD some years back. This was rather asking for the benefit of others... major question now is if this thread should or should not be pinned!

Hi! So what does the data on the CD look like? I have 1 EK2 recipient of the 1870s war I would like to know if he is on it: Secondelieutenant Louis Ernst Wilhelm Friedrich Müldner v. Mülnheim of GR 11

Hi David,

best regards,

This is great, could you look up Oberleutnant Mueller of the Feldartillerie? I don't have a first name, and I only know that he died in 1896.

Müller is a very common family name, do you have any more information?
(for example: Iron Cross 1st or 2nd class, Regiment-name or Prussian, Bavarian, etc. ...)?
Regards, Jens


maybe: EK2 (black ribbon): Müller, Eugen Prem.-Lieut. im Großh.-Bad. Feld-Art.-Rgt.  ???

    • Sounds great other than the Orange & Mango squash only because I prefer cran-pomegranate juice.
    • "(...) disgusting herbal concoction (...)" I took note of this description, to enrich my otherwise limited, English "Wortschatz"...
    • At work the standard indian tea such as PG tips is referred to as chimp tea. This goes back to the days when we had a Spanish girl working for us whose command of the English language was extremely limited. One lunch she said she was going to the shop could she get anything. I asked if she could get a pack of tea bags. She returned with some disgusting herbal concoction. I tried to explain what was required but without success. I then remembered PG tips had a picture of a chimpanzee on the packe
    • When I read Lapsang Souchong i decided to post something about these Tea . Many years ago I dont  know about Lapsang until I read James Michener book Centennial and the description of the savour of the Lapasang as a mix of tar and salt & smoked made me proof . It was exact ! and i liked it since then .
    • I have been known to drink Lapsang Souchong and Tea, Earl Grey, Hot... both "without pollutants". I normally have one mug of coffee in the morning, then spend the rest of the day drinking Orange & Mango squash (by the pint). Then evening comes and it's a pint, followed by red wine with dinner and sometimes a drop of Laphroaig afterwards.
