Nick,

I think I have him:

Generalmajor Friedrich Ritter von Greis (27 May 1879 - 6 February 1847):

Saint Anna Order 2nd Class: 7 Mar 1814

Saint Stanislaus Order 1st Class: Mar 1840

His last appointment was as the Brigade Commander of 1. Infanterie-Brigade in 4. Infanterie-Division.

This from the 1842 MHB, :jumping:

Regards

Glenn

Nick,

I had narrowed the field of suspects to just four by 1840 and all these had died by 1849. Luckily I was able to get hold of a couple more editions of the Bavarian Military Handbook for the early forties and General v. Greis was the only RSt1 recipient of the four. He was only the second regimental commander of what became the Bavarian Infanterie-Leib-Regiment.

Regards

Glenn

Addendum to the posts #117-118

The breast star of the 1st class is on the right side, but the sash with the badge is on the wrong one...

Strangely enough this is not St.Stanislaus breast star :wacky:

P.S. By the way, any ideas who this Gent might be? :rolleyes:

Interesting photo of Oberstleutnant (as far as I understand he will finish his career as Generalmajor) Robert Hermann von Kap-Herr

Nick,

Robert Frhr. v. Kap-Herr was promoted to Generalleutnant with a Patent of 23.5.16. The photo above shows him as the commander of Husaren-Regiment Nr. 10, probably just after the award the Saint Anna in early 1909. Here is a wartime portrait showing him as the Military Governor of Skierniewice in the Government General of Warsaw.

Nick,

Post #159.

Was tricky because I was looking for a Stanislaus Commander, However, that sash is the Grand Cross of the Prussian Red Eagle Order!

The breast star is that of the Oldenburg House Order.

So.........Botschafter Anton Graf Monts, the ambassador in Rome.
