Hi Gentlemen,

 

I recently acquired the following ordensspange:

 

 

It came with a note that it belonged to Walter Karl Erich Brande  (1886-1975). 

 

I would be very grateful if you find any information linked to when he received the Zahringer Lion 2nd Class and any information concerning his military carrier and ranks. 

 

 

Thank you a lot in advance.

 

Lucky

It is Brandl, not Brande.

 

He received the BZ3bX on 27.10.1917 as an überplanmäßiger Feldgeistlicher in the 28. Reserve-Division. He received the EK2 on 6.11.1915.

 

He was a Hofvikar in Karlsruhe and from 1916-1918 Hofdiakon.

 

There is a brief bio here: https://www2.landesarchiv-bw.de/ofs21/olf/einfueh.php?bestand=60572


There is also a Nachlaß and there are several personnel files in the archives in Karlsruhe.

Hi Dave!

 

Thank you a lot for this very interesting information!

 

I can see he was appointed by Frederick II of Baden himself.

 

Would it be possible to know where you found the information concerning the dates of his awards ?

 

Thank you.

 

Lucky

The BZ3bX date is from the award roll. The EK2 date is from his EK2 document, which is in his Nachlaß in the Landesarchiv.

For the award rolls, are there some publicly available sources or this is mainly available through books which are not to be find online ? 

 

Thank you, 

Lucky

The rolls of Baden awards were prepared by Erhard Roth and published by the Phaleristischer Verlag Michael Autengruber.

    • George Macdonald Fraser describes tea as "The British Army's cure for anything except a stomach wound."   Partial to Earl Grey, meself.  Used to be a tea drinker until Law School, where we had no cafeteria, only vending machines.  Awful as vending machine coffee is, their tea is worse.   Michael
    • Now it looks like I may see my exhibition for the first time in 19 months.   This year is the 65th Anniversary of the Suez Crisis, which culminated in Lester B. Pearson's invention of Peacekeeping, as opposed to Military Observers.   So the Museum will record a video of me discussing this.
    • I've never been able to stick to one theme.   One of my latest is women in the military.  For about ten years from 1952 to 1962, the RCAF actively recruited women to "man" the radar lines protecting against a Soviet attack.   During the Second War, women of the Auxiliary Territorial Service were attached to Royal Artillery Anti-Aircraft Batteries, called Mixed Batteries. They did spotting and tracking, plus communications, while the Gunners loaded and fired.  
    • 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.
