General der Kavallerie Hermann Freiherr von Vietinghoff genannt Scheel (1851--1933)


Recommended Posts

Once again I need your help: I am looking for all decorations of the General der Kavallerie for the year 1910 and 1914 (war time decorations?) until 1918. Here are his promotion dates and all decorations (it took me a few hours) up to Mid 1909. Thank you! Also a picture would be great, and, if I am not asking to much, an exact date to the year 1869, when he entered.

6.9.1870 Sekonde-Lieutenant

Well there at least two von Vietinghoffs in the lists of theOrder HdL from Brunswick:

Oberst Heinrich von Vietinghoff-Scheel got the Kommandeurskreuz 2. class in 1909

A Hofmarschall von Vietinghoff got the Kommandeurskreuz 1 class in 1892 and the Grand cross in 1909. He was Hof- and later Oberhofmarschall at the grandduchess of Mecklenburg Schwerin, so they must be relatives to your general. But I can't find his name in my lists.

Thanks! Oberhofmarschall Dimitri Karl Wilhelm Hartwig Heinrich Alexander von Vietinghoff ... Heinrich? Maybe Heinrich Otto Konrad von Vietinghoff gen. Scheel (1857 - 1917)?

I have the second one in my lists as well. As I recall correctly his name starts with D. He received a kurhessian decoration, probably chwo4 or 3

Is it possible Hermann Freiherr von Vietinghoff genannt Scheel, who had the RAO1, maybe got the Großkreuz 1910 or after 1914?
