Drandler, Johann

David M

Recommended Posts


I am looking for the careerdates and possibly a picture of Johann Drandler. He was in Husaren-Regiment Nr 8, commanding it around 1871. I know he was eingereiht as a Major in the Jazygier und Kumanier Huszaren-Regiment Friedrich Fürst zu Liechtenstein Nr 13 September 7th, 1865. He was promoted Major already in 1861. He was an Oberst by 1871, commanding HR 8 did not make it to General-rank though.

Hope to find out more here

Unfortuantely my reference material does not go back far enough to cover your interest, but I did find this little bit:

1870 - 1876 Oberst and in command of HR 8.

He handed over command of HR 8 to Oberst Friedrich Binder

Not much, but I guess everhy little bit helps.

Hi David,

according the :

Schematismus 1848, he was Unterleutnant at the 9. Hussar Regiment

Schematismus 1850, 2. Rittmeister at 9. Hussar Regiment

Schematismus 1853, 1. Rittmeister at 9. Hussar Regiment

Schematismus 1861, still 1. Rittmeister at 9. Hussar Regiment

Schematismus 1863, Major at 13. Hussar Regiment

Schematismus 1867, Oberstleutnant at 13 Hussar Regiment

Schematismus 1873, Oberst and Regiments Commander at 8. Hussar Regiment

according Alphons von Wrede, Geschichte der k.u.k. Wehrmacht, he got as a Oberleutnant during his time at the 9. Hussar Regiment the Militär Verdienst Kreuz.
