For a project I'm working on, could anyone please help me out with a career and awards list (and if possible, a pic or pics, preferably with foreign awards in wear)  for the good GM referenced in the header, former Flügeladjutant of Emperor Franz Joseph and apparently (after the latter's death) Kommader of the 11th (and so I gather, later 13th) KuK Kavallerie-Brigade? 

 

I found the two pics shown below on the web, but otherwise did not find much beyond some bare dates.

 

Any help you can give is very much appreciated.

Kind regards,

 Sandro

Hello,

 

foreign orders were just listed in "Haus-, Hof- und Staatshandbuch". Here is a copy from the 1914 issue which should display all decorations bestowed until 1913:

I could find some more in the 1916 issue:

Here follows the link: https://alex.onb.ac.at/cgi-content/alex?aid=shb&datum=1916&size=45&page=61

 

and I can add his last list of Austrian decorations - effective with March 1918:

Excellent, many thanks Christian!

 

If Glenn or another membe has some info on his career to share, that would give me all I'm looking for for the moment.

Many thanks again, best wishes, 

Sandro

I see that Gf. Hoyos was also wearer of the "Franz Josef Kreuz", also known as "Militantibus a Latere Meo", something not common to see...

He was a long time Aide de Camp of Franz Joseph. Therefore he received the Franz Josef Kreuz. I accidentially met a Countess Hoyos last week and she told me it is said that he was one of the first to see Kronprinz Rudolf after his suicide in Mayerling.

    • 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 .
