Hello Chris.

The reference book of the holders of this , the highest decoration for enlisted personnel shows eleven ( 11 ) members of the 1.Garde Regiment z.Fuss were awarded this medal.

BTW: all except one in 1918. One recipient was later a valet for Wilhelm II at Haus Doorn in the Netherlands, his residence in exile.

Which book is it`? I see there are a number of different ones about the cross.

​Hello Chris.

Here are the particulars:

" Das Preussische Goldene Militaer-Verdienst-Kreuz

( Der PLM des Deutschen Unteroffiziers)"

Mit Namen-Verzeichnis der Ordensinhaber

By Franz Josef Ophaus, 1936, 211 pages

I am aware of other books. This one appears to be published by the association of recipients , the listing gives status at the time of publication whether living, if so where , civilian occupation and date of award and rank with consecutive number of award also given.
