Question about knight cross with swords of the House Order of Hohenzollern

Recommended Posts

Hi everybody

Looking for information about one Saxon officer, I have found that he had received the HOH3X after his death. Is it possible ?If my memory is OK, I remember that the Prussians did not award decorations posthumously.

The officer : Lt Christoph Frhr von Welck from GR 101(1894-1918). His exact date of death is 28.9.1918.

In the Geile's book about Hohenzollern, the author gave the date of award on 19.10.1918. I know that in the Militär Wochenblatt, the delay between date of award and date of publication is one month. He will probably received the knight cross on the beginning of September.

If someone has more informations about von Welck, it will be much appreciate. Thanks for your help
