    Oberstleutnant Friedrich/Fritz Von Boddien, Kürassier-Regiment „Graf Wrangel“ (Ostpreußisches) Nr. 3

    Recommended Posts

    Hi - I have a portrait of an Imperial German Kürassier officer that I am advised is Fritz Von Boddien (see attached images). He was Commander of Kürassier-Regiment „Graf Wrangel“ (Ostpreußisches) Nr. 3 in c. 1901/02, and the portrait shows him sporting his 1870/71 Iron Cross, second class, and his Greek Merit Order of the Redeemer. I am seeking any photographs or other images to compare against my portrait to hopefully confirm this identification. Any other information about Von Boddien would also be most welcome. Many thanks in advance.

    Dear Drdwarf13

    He was commander of the Kurassier-regiment No. 3 from 18. april 1901 till 17. july 1902. He came from the Mecklenburgian/Dutch noble family of Boddien, whose members fought for the Mecklenburgian, Prussian and Dutch army. Hope this helps.

    Kind regards, Laurentius
