Bavarian Ludwig Stauder serving in the Dutch East Indies Army?

Recommended Posts

Hi Gentlemen,

I got this CDV named with Ludwig Stauder, is it possible

to find something about him?

I believe he is wearing:

- the cross for Important War actions

- the Long Service Medal

Dear Andreas,

I do not have enough experience with Dutch medals (despite being Dutch), so I don't know if this man's career has been written down anywhere. That being said, there have been dozens of Germans serving in the Dutch East-Indies both before and after WW1. I have seen several pictures and medalbars, plus atleast one frackspange of German veterans. I think one of the Dutch collectors here has a frackspange with an EK2 and Military Order of William :whistle:

Kind regards, Laurentius

dedehansen, you are correct. He indeed wears both Dutch medals. In the Dutch archives in The Hague there must be a file on him.

 

He served at least for six years in the Dutch Indies to receive the Bronze Long service medal. Normally it was awarded after 12 years, but in the tropics the years counted double.

He is wearing the medals in the wrong order by the way.

 

Regards

Herman

There were many German settlers in the Netherlands Indies. Most came as traders seeking their fortunes, gradually participating in all aspects of the colonies life.
