I have a group of documents to a Hauptmann Karl von Bayer-Ehrenberg, but don't have much information on him other than he was from Baden. Apparently he was also a recipient of the Knight's Cross of the Order of Berthold the First, according to the documents. Any additional information would be appreciated.

Vince,

Which units are identified on your documents? There was no active officer by that name in 1914 but there was a reserve Lt. who had some active duty time in GR 109, but his first name was Leo.

Thanks, Andy

Vince,

he is shown as Karl Wilhelm Theodor in the 1873 Württemberg Rang- und Quartier-Liste. He entered the Württemberg army as a volunteer on 29 June 1866 and was commissioned on 13 April 1868 with a Patent of 2.5.68. Promoted to Premier-Lieutenant with a Patent of 18.7.70 H and to Hauptmann on 16.4.77. He was the holder of a Friedrichs Order Knight's Cross 1st Class with Swords and retired on 2 March 1888.

Regards

Glenn

He is shown with the following in the 1904/05 Ordens-Almanach:

Baden Berthold des Ersten Ritterkreuz

Baden Orden vom Zähringer Löwen Ritterkreuz 1. Klasse

Württemberg Friedrichsorden Ritterkreuz 1. Klasse

Presumably he also had the 1870/71 Commemorative and the Prussian Centenary.

Regards

Glenn
