Can someone find out when he got the gMMM?





there is only one date named in "Bayerns Goldenes Ehrenbuch"

"Beim Sturm auf das französische Bollwerk im Bois D'Ailly am 26.1.1915 erklettert Vzfw Eydel der 4. Komp 4. bay. RIR zugleich mit dem die 3. Sturmkolonne führenden Unteroffizier den Wall und dreht sofort ein dastehendes französisches Maschinengewehr nach dem Feinde. Aber es ist nicht in Gang zu bringen, so hält er Handgranaten werfend die ganze Nacht im Bollwerk aus und hat dadurch wesentlich Anteil am Festhalten der Schanze, die er erst verlassen muss, als er am rechten Arm und der rechten Seite verwundet wird."

On Ancestry database are some listings of him, but no date about the awarding of the TM. The golden TM is listed without date.

my newest entry.

A very nice NCO bar.
He got the MVK before 1905, so he must have a special position like a gunnery NCO, purser, military-musician or something.
In the great war he was a noncombattant ( see König-Ludwig-Kreuz and  FEK without swords).
He got the cross for 24 year long service, the bar was made after 1934.

    • 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.
    • "(...) 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 .
