Leutnant d. R HAns Gottfried von Haebler new discovery

Recommended Posts

Hi everybody

I have received this nice photo recently and this nice officer shows his nice ribbon bar with SH3, SV3bX, SA3bX and EK2.

In the O’Connor’s book, Aviation awards of Imperial Germany, vol. 3 on page 120 to 122 there is a small bio of this man. Here I don’t want to rewrite it.

Only one question is important, did he receive the knight cross of House order of Hohenzollern? Indeed O’Connor said that the photo supply more information.

To receive the knight cross with swords of House order of Hohenzollern in 1917, the officer should have 12 confirmed victories and this number grows up in 1918 (to 20 confirmed victories). Of course some Hohenzollern awards were immediate reward and some staff officer in aviation unit received it but this is not the case of von Haebler.

So how a man with only 8 victories should received this order. So for me a small mistake has been solved here. Of course if someone has got one photo showing von Haebler with knight cross of Hohenzollern, please show us. Thanks.

What a truly magnificent photo, Christophe, not only for its military interest but also for its artistic execution. Does it have any information about the studio or photographer on it, by any chance?

Hi Paul,

 

Do you have any date ? I have a lot of information about Saxon officers who received the HHO3X but no date for von Haebler. Thanks for your help.

HI Paul,

I have just talked to Daniel about this subject, and he has no date. Probably he never wore the HHO3X.

Probably in his personal files in Dredsden Library may confirm or not if he received this cross.

    • Thank you for sharing your story, it was most interesting and greatly appreciated, it makes this blog well worth the time to post. Regards Brian  
    • Hello I started collecting when I found my first Mauser cartridges in a field next to my parents' house next to Armentières. I was eight years old.  Then shrapnel, schrapnell balls, darts... That's how I became a historian. When I was 18, we used to walk through the fields with a metal detector to find our happiness. It was my time in the army as a research-writer in a research centre that made me love the orders of chivalry. I've been collecting them for 24 years now. Christophe
    • Thank you for your most interesting comment. The thrill of the chase didn't interest me in the beginning but over time it started to overshadow the act of simply adding yet another medal or group to the collection. Regards Brian  
    • I know the way I got into collecting is like so many other people; through a sibling. I also know that my love of history is barely unique in a place like this. So I know I have a shared background with many people. A less shared area - perhaps - is that I've always loved the thrill of the chase. When I decide I want, say, a 1914 trio with an original bar, to a cavalry unit, the utter thrill of getting out there and, (a) finding groups that fit the criteria and, (b) comparing them re: ranks, uni
    • I don't really drink that much these days, but there is something about a hot cup of Char that can't be beaten when you are cold wet and miserable. Has to be with milk and although I prefer it sweet with a teaspoon of sugar, these day I usually go without. When the mood takes me I will also  drink Earl Grey (with milk of course). But if I am honest my favourite brew is coffee (espresso) can't stand instant coffee, though although I do like Camp coffee which is another British thing from days gon
