Life dates of Kaiserliche Marine admirals

Post by Kriegsmarine Großadmiral » 30 Jul 2022 22:05

I need help with the life dates (and also places of birth/death) for some Kaiserliche Marine admirals. I found conflicting information for some admirals (for now only for A-G alphabetically, the rest will follow soon).

Char. Konteradmiral Joachim Adolph von Bassewitz
* 28.04.1859 Güstrow, Mecklenburg
21.06.1918 or 22.07.1918 Rostock

Admiral Emil Felix von Bendemann
* 05.08.1848 or 08.08.1848 Dresden
† 31.10.1915 Berlin

Char. Vizeadmiral Adolph Wilhelm Berger
* 30.10.1829 Halle, Saale or Rastenburg?
† 01.10.1898 Göttingen

Char. Admiral Louis von Blanc
* 12.03.1832 or 12.05.1832 Potsdam
† 09.01.1903 Weimar

Char. Konteradmiral Joachim von Bredow
* 13.05.1858 Stechow, Brandenburg
13.02.1914 or 14.02.1914 Kiel

Char. Admiral Rudolf von Eickstedt
* 25.01.1852 or 25.09.1852 Gut Osterholz bei Itzehoe
† 30.06.1925 Kiel

Char. Konteradmiral Max Foss
* 07.09.1850 Neisse
† 04.12.1939 [?]
Does anyone know the place of death?

Admiral à la suite Friedrich August II. Großherzog von Oldenburg
* 16.11.1852 Rastede, Oldenburg or Oldenburg in Oldenburg?
† 24.02.1931 Rastede, Oldenburg

Konteradmiral Ernst Goette
* 26.01.1869 [?]
† 03.02.1945 Berlin
Does anyone know the place of birth?

Char. Konteradmiral Kurt Graßhoff
* 29.05.1869 Templin, Uckermark
03.07.1952 or 04.07.1952 Bonn

Char. Konteradmiral Wilibald Grauer
* 03.06.1869 Kempten, Posen
20.10.1925 or 21.10.1925 Berlin

Char. Konteradmiral Alfred Gruner
* 02.04.1850 London, Großbritannien
xx.04.1917 Berlin
Does anyone know the exact date of death?

And two more questions regarding dates of rank:

Char. Konteradmiral Richard Dittmer (1840-1925)
Was he given the rank of Char. Konteradmiral in 1902 or 1920 (the exact date should be 12.05.)?

Char. Marinegeneralstabsarzt Dr. med. Oscar Gudden (1862-1944)
Was he given the rank of Char. Marinegeneralstabsarzt on 07.10.1921 or 28.04.1922?

Dave, for Blanc, did you mean *12.05.1832 instead of †12.05.1932 like you wrote?
