Award dates of Prinz Leopold von Bayern


Recommended Posts

All I found is that he received his EK2 as a commander of battery during Battle of Sedan (1. September 1870).
He was awarded EK1 1870 for his deeds during Battle for Beauvert between 8. and 10. December as Major.
Probably he received it on 11. December, when he was also promoted to commander of 3rd Artillery Regiment.

Ingo,

the award of the EK2 was gazetted in the Bavarian Militär-Verordnungsblatt No 53 of 30 September 1870. Royal permission was given to wear the decoration by the King of Bavaria on 26 September 1870 and promulgated by an order dated 29 September 1870.

The award of the EK1 was gazetted in the Bavarian Militär-Verordnungsblatt No 5 of 24 January 1871 with Royal permission to wear the decoration by the King of Bavaria given on 18 January 1871.

Regards

Glenn

Now finally only the dates for his EK II und EK I for the war of 1914/1918 are missing.

Are you sure he got any 1914 Iron Crosses besides the Grand Cross? That would be unusual, to say the least, and I cannot find much to back this up. Do you have some source that claims he got both classes of the EK twice? I have some doubts about this claim, to be honest.

    • 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.
