Hi Jon,

It is Prussian General August von Horn. Here is a portrait of his Bavarian namesake.

Regards
Glenn

Many thanks, Glenn!

So this first image below appears to be an earlier photo of Karl Frh von Horn, am I right?

And, I had the second photo (the fuzzy one) tagged as being Karl's son Carl Graf von Horn, Bavarian KM.
Also correct?

Hi Jon,

correct on both counts. This image of Carl is somewhat clearer.

Can anyone please provide information about the early days (1866 - 1885) of the military career of Bavarian Generaloberst Carl Graf von Horn (1847 - 1923)? I have been unable to find any mention of his early regimental postings or his general staff activities during these years.

Thanks,

AJK

Thank you, but the link that you provided does not give any information about von Horn's early career, hence my inquiry.

Regards,

AJK
