German and Austrian Officers with Imperial Russia Awards

Recommended Posts

Nick,

I don't have the answer (yet). My first impression, is that it is likely a former officer of Garde-Grenadier-Regiment Kaiser Alexander Nr. 1. However, the bar has no long service decoration, so either an active officer who retired before completing a full career or even a reserve officer. There are not too many individuals in 1871 who had an EK2 and an RA3X and presumably the RAO4 and the Persian Sun and Lion came later. I am looking!

Regards

Glenn

Hi Glenn,

you do not stay unknown with a rack like that!;)

Char. Generalleutnant Hermann v. Gerhardt (1831-1909), commanding 57. Infanterie-Brigade at the time of retirement in 1888.

WOW! That was fast.
Thank you very much for information. I am collecting paintings on Franco-Prussian war and based on general awards he took part in Franco-Prussian war. But I had no idea who he were, not until now.
With kind regards,
Glenn

Where did you get the photo of Dr. Karl Brust?  He was my grandfather. I never say this photo of him. I have many photos and parts of his uniform. Have attached some photos

To tell you the truth - I don`t remember where I got this scan. 

Guess this photo was sold at some auction.

I have many photos and parts of his uniform.

Do you have his medal bar? 

Regards,

Nick
