Hello!

Maybe someone can tell me something about these two officers, please?

unbekannt (zwei bayer. Offiziere, Orden).JPG

Hello:

Congratulations regarding this nice photo.  These are Bavarian Officers and the photo was taken between approximately between 1932 and 1934 in my estimation.  The Officer on the left is wearing the 1929 award for the commemoration of the 60th birthday of Kronprinzen Rupprecht.  The Officer on the right is wearing what appears to be the 1932 Jubilee medal of the 2nd Chevaulegers-Regiment "Taxis".  Neither Officer is wearing the "Ehrenkreuz des Weltkrieges".

Best regards,

Hello Schiaßplatzmeister!

Thank you very much for your help! I agree with the date of the photo.Unfortunately I can´t tecognize the ranks. It´s staff officer.

The bavarian ranklist of 1918 shows the following staff-officer for the 2nd Chev.Rgt.:

Major Kurt Freiherr v. Lepel

Medals: Militär-Verdienst-Orden 4.Kl. with swords

He left the army as Lt.Col.

Maybe that´s a match?

Hi Gents,

 

I would like to share some photos from my collection.

 

I couldn´t identify them. Maybe someone is able to 

 

find out who it is. Every help appreciated.

 

This photo is signed with Graf von R. on the back.

 

I think he is a major from the Ulanen and he is at least wearing BMVO 2 and breaststar from RAO

Hi Gents,

is it possible that this guy is Major Graf von Bothmer?

Kind regards

Andreas

Hello:

I do not think that this is Felix Graf von Bothmer.

Best regards,

Thanks Schießplatzmeister,

I´ve tried to decipher the signature on the reverse, I believe it could be Graf Roedern.

Regards

Andreas

Hello Andreas:

Eureka!  It took a little bit of digging to find this Officer.  He is NOT Bavarian, but is Prussian!  He is Garde=Kavallerie=Division., 1. Garde=Kavallerie=Brigade., Kom.: Gen. Maj. Gr. v. Roedern.  I found him in my 1912 Rangliste der K.P. Armee.  He was the recipient of many high awards, but here is only wearing his minimalist front for everyday duty.

MfG,

Thanks SPM,

now I know, why I couldn´t find him.

I was looking for a Major in a Ulanenregiment.

Kind regards

Nice and I am not arguing the ID. He isnt wearing a guards unifor and his straps don't look like general major straps but could be wrong.

it's a wonderful photo  

Hello ccj:

You bring up a good point.  I was wondering the same thing myself!  I know very little about uniforms, but it did not look like a Generalmajor uniform to me either.  I also couldn't find the MVO award in my 1914-1918 listing of awards to any Graf von Roedern.  There were a few other von Roedern Officers listed in my 1912 Ranglist:

Infanterie=Regiment Keith, (1. Oberschlesisches) Nr. 22, Hptm. Gr. v. Roedern

Ulanen=Regiment Prinz August von Württemberg (Posensches) Nr. 10, Rittm. Gr. v. Roedern

Garde=Kürassier=Regiment, Berlin, Oblt. Gr. v. Roedern

1. Garde=Feldartillerie=Regiment, Berlin, Oblt. Gr. v. Roedern (Konstantin)

1. Garde=Feldartiller=Regiment, Berlin, Oblt. Gr. v. Roedern (Max=Erdmann)

Uhlanen=Regiment Kaiser Alexander III. von Rußland, (Westpreußiches) Nr. 1., Oblt. Gr. v. Roedern (Brieg)

So, perhaps, he is one of these Officers? The mystery continues!

Best regards,

I read 30 on his Epauletten, this should be Infanterie - Regiment Graf Werder No. 30,

maybe this could help identifying him?!

Hello Andreas:

Yes it must be IR Graf Werder No. 30 as the photo was taken in Saarlouis.  I do not see a recipient with the Adolph of Nassau RK with Swords listed in the 1902 Rangliste, nor the 1911 Rangeliste.  The photo is obviously after 1897, so he might be listed in any of the 1903-1910 Preußischen Armee Ranglisten, I don't have these in my library however.

Best regards,

Gentlemen,

as this is Oberst (General) Bolko Graf v. Roedern, I think we can rule him out.

Regards

Glenn

 

roedern bolko graf.jpg

Hello, Glenn! Was Bolko Ludwig Erdmann Melchior Julius Nikolaus Graf von Roedern (1852--1931) at last Generalmajor or even higher? He commanded the 22. Kavallerie-Brigade 1910/11.

Impressive Claudio. You can congratulate your brother for his work. Thanks for sharing it with us. Like you  know I am a Saxon collector, does your brother can make a paint of a Saxon general  ?

Hi Christophe!

 

thanks for you kind words... on behalf of my brother I can tell you that these comments are really very much appreciated.

 

Do you have any interesting or a favourite photograph of a Saxon General with full regalia that you want to share? Maybe I can convince my brother to make a portrait of him.

 

ciao,

 

Claudio

I forgot to mention that my brother already portrayed a Saxon high officer who later became General and during WW1 Saxon minister of war.

 

Here it is:

    • Sounds great other than the Orange & Mango squash only because I prefer cran-pomegranate juice.
    • "(...) disgusting herbal concoction (...)" I took note of this description, to enrich my otherwise limited, English "Wortschatz"...
    • At work the standard indian tea such as PG tips is referred to as chimp tea. This goes back to the days when we had a Spanish girl working for us whose command of the English language was extremely limited. One lunch she said she was going to the shop could she get anything. I asked if she could get a pack of tea bags. She returned with some disgusting herbal concoction. I tried to explain what was required but without success. I then remembered PG tips had a picture of a chimpanzee on the packe
    • When I read Lapsang Souchong i decided to post something about these Tea . Many years ago I dont  know about Lapsang until I read James Michener book Centennial and the description of the savour of the Lapasang as a mix of tar and salt & smoked made me proof . It was exact ! and i liked it since then .
    • I have been known to drink Lapsang Souchong and Tea, Earl Grey, Hot... both "without pollutants". I normally have one mug of coffee in the morning, then spend the rest of the day drinking Orange & Mango squash (by the pint). Then evening comes and it's a pint, followed by red wine with dinner and sometimes a drop of Laphroaig afterwards.
