Info on some officers Kriegsakademie 1908 class

Post by Svennie » 08 Dec 2011 07:42

Dear forum,

again I would like to ask for your help with my research into Paul Hausser. He visited the War Academy between 1908 and 1911. I am searching for the living relatives of his classmates to try to retrieve diaries, letters, pictures etc. Please also see my post for the 1899 Selekta class for further explanation.

The 1908 class consisted of 133 students. For most of them, I have their first names and birth dates. I am looking for the first names and birth dates for the following officers:
15 Dous Gren Rgt 1
28 Gründler FR20
29 Fromm FR22
51 Frölich IR78
56 Lübcke IR84
78 Patschkowski IR 146
100 Bonin v 2. Garde Feld art
101 Bartsch Feld Art Rgt 4
110 Hillmer Feld Art Rgt 38
111 Gutschmidt Feld Art Rgt 38
119 Mauritz Fuss Art Rgt 3

Only birth date missing:
76 Martin Knaths (IR 145)
89 Wilhelm Freiherr von Stenglin (GR89)
103 berthold von Theobald (FAR 14)
106 Hans Jaeschke (FAR 25)
107 Bernhard Rudorff (FAR 26)
122 Josef Lüchau (FuAR10)
127 Leopold Kutzleb (Eisenb.Rgt.2)

There are some more officers that I lack data of but their names are so common that they do not provide any starting point for finding relatives, so I skipped them beforehand.

Thank you very much in advance for your help.
Best regards
Sven

Thank you very much Glenn! I have one other officer to add: a captain Von Rönne who was in the Grenadier-Rgt 1 in 1908, the Kriegsakademie between 1908-1911, then was assigned to the Greater General Staff between 1912 and 1914 and then posted as a Kompaniechef to IR 31. He survived the war as a Major. Do you have his first names and date of birth?
Any other additions to the list of officers posted before are very welcome.

Thank you very much in advance.
Best regards,
Sven
