Help. Generalleutnant Max Dennerlain

Recommended Posts

Hello o3fahnen, In the site Lexicon der Wehrmacht appears Lt General Max Dennerlein 1885 1957 , a Bavarian Pioniere officer his Service record is very detailed but nothing about awards . he served in WW1 , stayed in the Reichswehr and then in the Wehrmacht , Generalmajor in 1938 and Generalleutnant in 1940 , he was wounded in 1940 during the Battle of France , during 1942 he was commander of the 290 th Infantry Division trapped int the pocket of Demyansk , succesfully evacuated by the Luftwaffe, so he might wear the Demyansk Shield apart from the wounded badge

I have for Dennerlein:

• Prinzregent-Luitpold-Medaille and Bande der Jubiläumsmedaille für die Bayerische Armee
• Militär-Verdienstorden 4. Klasse mit Schwertern
• 1914 Eisernes Kreuz 2. Klasse 
• 1914 Eisernes Kreuz 1. Klasse
• Ehrenkreuz für Frontkämpfer
• Wehrmacht (Heer) Dienstauszeichnung 4. bis 1. Klasse (2.10.1936)
• 1939 Spange zum Eisernen Kreuz 2. Klasse (8.6.1940)

• 1939 Kriegsverdienstkreuz 2.Klasse mit Schwertern (31.1.1944)

If he had the Demjanskschild, it was not mentioned in his HPA Personalakte.

    • Sounds great other than the Orange & Mango squash only because I prefer cran-pomegranate juice.
    • "(...) disgusting herbal concoction (...)" I took note of this description, to enrich my otherwise limited, English "Wortschatz"...
    • At work the standard indian tea such as PG tips is referred to as chimp tea. This goes back to the days when we had a Spanish girl working for us whose command of the English language was extremely limited. One lunch she said she was going to the shop could she get anything. I asked if she could get a pack of tea bags. She returned with some disgusting herbal concoction. I tried to explain what was required but without success. I then remembered PG tips had a picture of a chimpanzee on the packe
    • When I read Lapsang Souchong i decided to post something about these Tea . Many years ago I dont  know about Lapsang until I read James Michener book Centennial and the description of the savour of the Lapasang as a mix of tar and salt & smoked made me proof . It was exact ! and i liked it since then .
    • I have been known to drink Lapsang Souchong and Tea, Earl Grey, Hot... both "without pollutants". I normally have one mug of coffee in the morning, then spend the rest of the day drinking Orange & Mango squash (by the pint). Then evening comes and it's a pint, followed by red wine with dinner and sometimes a drop of Laphroaig afterwards.
