    As requested here is the bio I have for him.  Please note that I do not include information from the Biblio series on the Generals, , so, there are a few gaps which can be filled in from that source.  II choose not to simply copy directly from someone else's work.

    Thanks a lot Andy, very much appreciated! :beer:

    I have some questions about his medals, is the

    - TL2mS the Turkish Liakat medal silver with swords?

    - TH the Eiserner Halbmond?

    - BO2  the military merit order neck badge?

    but what does EH3a mean?

    The EH3a is the 1924 abbreviation for the 1914 abbreviation HSH3a- Sachsen-Ernestinischer Haus Orden, Ritterkreuz 1. Kl.  and you are correct about the two Turkish awards.
