FML Marzell Lawrowski von Plöcken


Recommended Posts

Hi, I am looking for information about FML Marzell Lawrowski von Plöcken (1856-1927). I am particularly interested if there is any record that he received the Prussian Kronenorden 2nd Class or the Russian Order of St. Anne 3rd Class prior to WWI. I will owe for any information.

If you want to check foreign orders for Austrian colonels and generals you have just the chance to do it in the k.u.k. Staatshandbuch. Only here the foreign orders were listed. I have checked the last one of 1914 and here Lawrowski did not own any foreign decoration.

Lukasz,

 

I similarly checked the Prussian Ordensliste up to the last supplement in 1913.  He had nothing from Prussia until then. The extract from Christian above would seem to rule out a 1913/1914 award.

Glenn

Hi Christian,

 

I found another source that in fact I have had for years: Ruhestands-Schematismus der Österreichisch-Ungarischen Armee für 1914. Although only retired officers are listed, it does indeed list foreign orders.

Hi,

 

I am a bit late in responding, but according to Balla Tibor's book Feldmarschalleutnants FML Marzell Lawrowski von Plöcken did not receive any foreign orders or decorations.

Dear Glenn,

 

you are right with Ruhestandsschematismus. Because of the fact that I don´t own any of them and they are not available online, they are not on my screen.

 

Thank you for your post.

 

Kindest

 

Christian

    • Two years down the line.   My mother-in-law passed away this summer, as did one of her sisters-in-law.   My exhibition opened, and we had a marvellous speakers' night with four Peacekeeping veterans, including a Meritorious Service Medal winner.  But Covid closed it down in March 2020, and while still there it hasn't reopened.
    • 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 .
