    Going through my documents I found these again... the First one to Oslkar Rösch, which is OK in itself... the one to Johann Resch is way more interesting, badly wounded in the fighting, he ended up in captivity in Australia, as opposed to Japan.... He was part of the original OMD (Although not during the Boxer rebellion..

    You wouldn't happen to have a photo of one Heinrich Müldner who was in Tsingtao at the time of WW1?



    Trying to find a photo when you are just starting with the name is a lot like Pin-the-tail-on-the-Donkey.  Much easier to go from a named photo to the POW rolls.  Why the interest in Heinrich Müldner?  Very interesting -I see he was a Translator in training and knew 13 languages!

    Yeah I get that. But as 1812 ouverture has such  a wide collection I tried my luck. Heinrich is from another branch of my Kassel originating family. My interest in phaleristics is a consequence of my genealogical hobby now over 25 years ago.
