Can someone please help identify this KuK general and/or decipher the dedication?

Recommended Posts

I won this on eBay last week and was wondering if someone can please help identify this KuK general and/or decipher the dedication?

What I think I can read is: 

"Zur Erinnerung am gemeinsamen (....) im Felde (....) dankbaren (....) (...), 18/2/1917, (unreadable signature)"

Many thanks in advance for your help. 

Kind regards,

 Sandro

I read:

"Zur Erinnerung an gemeinsames Wirken im Felde
von ihren(m?) dankbaren Kommandanten"

18. 2. 1917 ??? (18. 12. 1917 very unlikely)

I think you’re right on the dedication and the date, many thanks.The only word I’m not 100% sure of is “Wirken”. Any further views on that will be appreciated. Kind regards, Sandro

Well, the dude looks a lot like Oskar Guseck. In fact, I think he really is Oskar Guseck. Simi.

PS:  His full name was Oskar Guseck von Glankirchen

I concur with Simon Rex the photo is of Feldzeugmeister Oskar Guseck Edler von Glankirchen.

Thank you for confirming my hunch, Ian.  Well, just to seal the deal, so to speak, I found a nice sketch of General Guseck on the internet.  It was sketched in 1915 when he was 2 star general.  Take a look at his autograph on this sketch... its a total 100% match to the signature on Sandro's postcard.  Simi.
