Leutnant Luhrs - Foot Artillery Regt. No. 10


Recommended Posts

I picked up this silver toasting cup at an auction that is engraved with "AF 10" and "Luhrs" and the date 8.8.13. I have been able to find a Leutnant Luhrs in the 10th Foot Art. in the 1913 Ranklist and have found that he survived the war with a wartime rank of Major in a staff position. Any additional info. on the good Lt. would be appreciated.

Beau,

Major a.D. Walter Lührs.

Entered Fußartillerie-Regiment Nr. 10 as a Fahnenjunker, was promoted to Fähnrich on 27.1.05 and to Leutnant on 19 Oct 1905 (19.10.05 Ww). He attended the course at the Military Technical Academy commencing 1 Jan 1907 and at the outbreak of war in 1914 was a Leutnant and Regimental Adjutant. He was promoted to Oberleutnant on 5 September 1914 and to Hauptmann on 18 September 1915 (18.9.15 B2b). In 1919 he was a General Staff officer on the staff of XV. Armee-Korps and was transferred to the newly formed staff of the Reichswehr Gruppen-Kommando 2 on 7 September 1919. He did not remain there long, returning to his parent regiment - FußAR 10 on 22 September 1919. He presumably retired shortly thereafter and was promoted to charakterisierter Major on leaving.

Regards

Glenn
