Hi Christophe,

I do more think that a lot of them were actually Hannoveranian Officers.

Quite a lot of them did not want to go in Prussian service after their defeat in 1866 so they went to the Saxons.

Lots of greetings

Daniel

Thanks all for your information.

Very nice picture you had Karsten ! too bad that this one is not in my collection.

Dave, I fix the part of von Bülow. He received the AC1 on 16 April 1887.

Of the others, most appear to be Hannoverians. I don't see Friedrich Karl Ernst Poten, but there were at least three other Potens in the Hannoverian Army in 1866, not including Karl August Wilhelm, who went into the Prussian Army (UR 5, DR 16, HR 4), so it's likely he was also Hannoverian. There are too many Meyers to sort. For the others, here are their last Hannoverian Stellungen and where they went in the Saxon Army.

Thanks Dave for the informations.

I have found additional date od death in the following book : Das Kgl. Sachs 2 Ulanen regiment Nr. 18 (1892-1918).

I have found the death date of Boddien (1926) and Poten (1914).

About the awards of von Schele, I have found the PRA4 on 1889.

Like you said Dave, only 71 Hannovrian officiers went to Saxe and only 14 received the HEAR.

I hope, one day, finding more photos of these brave men.
