I've been researching Leutnant Ernst Hess.  Each place I find his wards listed it says 1914 EKII, 1914 EKI and Royal House Order of Hohenzollern First Class.  It doesn't mention with or without swords but I imagine it would be with swords.  I can not find much information about this man prior to the start of WWI except that he was in the Flight Troops before the war started.  Any information that you can provide for the person would be greatly appreciated.

Born 1893, KIA 1917

Hohenzollern knight with swords.

Served in Kampf-Einsitzer-Kommando Douai and Jasta 19 as far as I know.

Might have had a Hessen bravery medal too.
