    Thank you arb! I know for sure he was Kdt von Küstrin too: somebody knows when? And what about his decorations and awards?

    Below is his 1908/09 DOA entry. The Red Eagle Order 3rd Class with the Bow was replaced with the Red Eagle Order 2nd Class with Oakleaves on 24.3.1909 when he retired.

    The cut-off date for editing the DOA (Redaktionsschluß) was 27.01.1908, so they should have gotten it right. As bad as editing has gotten in the modern digital era, where we just hit "reply" rather than going through layers of fact-checkers and editors, one would have hoped that they were better back then, but mistakes happen.
