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.  ???

    • George Macdonald Fraser describes tea as "The British Army's cure for anything except a stomach wound."   Partial to Earl Grey, meself.  Used to be a tea drinker until Law School, where we had no cafeteria, only vending machines.  Awful as vending machine coffee is, their tea is worse.   Michael
    • Now it looks like I may see my exhibition for the first time in 19 months.   This year is the 65th Anniversary of the Suez Crisis, which culminated in Lester B. Pearson's invention of Peacekeeping, as opposed to Military Observers.   So the Museum will record a video of me discussing this.
    • I've never been able to stick to one theme.   One of my latest is women in the military.  For about ten years from 1952 to 1962, the RCAF actively recruited women to "man" the radar lines protecting against a Soviet attack.   During the Second War, women of the Auxiliary Territorial Service were attached to Royal Artillery Anti-Aircraft Batteries, called Mixed Batteries. They did spotting and tracking, plus communications, while the Gunners loaded and fired.  
    • Two years down the line.   My mother-in-law passed away this summer, as did one of her sisters-in-law.   My exhibition opened, and we had a marvellous speakers' night with four Peacekeeping veterans, including a Meritorious Service Medal winner.  But Covid closed it down in March 2020, and while still there it hasn't reopened.
    • Sounds great other than the Orange & Mango squash only because I prefer cran-pomegranate juice.
