I´m searching for the date of birth for Hugo von Pogrell.

He was awarded with the PLM on 12.09.1866 as Rittmeister in the 2. Schlesisches Dragonerregiment Nr. 8. He died of his wounds on 17.09.1866.

I´m searching also for the dates of life for Ulrich Ernst von Schlichting.

He was awarded with the PLM on 17.09.1866 as Hauptmann and Chef 9. Kompanie / Garde-Füsilierregiment / 1. Garde-Infanteriedivision / Garde-Korps / 2. Armee.

All I know is he was born in the year 1832 and died in the year 1868.

Many thanks.

Hi Ingo,

41 years of age is certainly not old for a Prussian infantry captain. Typically, an officer would not be promoted to that rank before his early to mid thirties and then spend ten or eleven years in that rank before promotion to Major or often retirement in that rank at that point if further promotion was not recommended.

Regards

Ingo,

 

To reinforce Glenn's point, he was promoted Hptm. on 31.05.1859 and became a company commander on 18.10.1860.  He was not yet 33 1/2 years old at the time he made captain.

 

Promoted Major on 25.09.1867, he assumed Batl. command on 15.10.1867.

Ingo,

As I was typing my response, Glenn posted the information first.  Do you have the date and place of birth for  Ewald Gallus from FAR 2 who received the PLM on 15.01.1867??  He died of wounds on 18.10.1871 as a Major in 3. FAB.

Andy

    • I like my tea strong enough for my spoon to stand up in. My father got me into it. When my father was at RAF Dum Dum 1943-47 most of his fellow officers drank ice cold drinks to mitigate  the heat, his Sikh batman warned him against it and said that strong hot tea would cool him down, most certainly did. So years later in the UK when everybody else was drinking iced drinks on a baking day the wood family was inbibing copious quantities of hot strong brews of Assam's finest. P
    • Hi ccj, Thanks for your comments. Funny how, for me at least, coffee has become a habit more than a conscience choice. It's the old, "Well if you having one (coffee) pour me as well". When I get together with my son-in-law, a former Brit, it's tea all the way. Thanks again. Regards Brian  
    • I live and grew up in the south (USA) and the drink of choice 7 days a week was cold sweet tea. I was unaware Lipton was British because that’s what most southern use for brewing tea. When I joined the army I learned most people in the north and western parts of the USA drank unsweetened tea and that was perplexing to my young brain. Now days I can’t stand sweet iced tea but it’s still the most common drink in the south, but, you can get unsweetened ice tea in the south. Im familiar with ho

    • Thanks for your reply Patrick, just in case some might not know what the Belgian WW1 Medal you were referencing looks like I have included one here. I understand that the small crown on the ribbon denoted the recipient was a volunteer.
