3 Generals named von Wallenberg

Postby Elwyn W on 14 Jan 2013 04:41

As usual I am struggling to put first names to laufbahn and promotion dates.

I am interested in 3 of of them:

GenMj Anton Karl Paul 1836 - 1931
GenLt Paul 1850 1909
GenMj Walter 1857 1945

I have information on two:

ObstLt 14.05.94 L
Obst 22.03.97 G2g
GenMj 16.06.00 A ..... Anton Karl Paul or Walter?
Kmdr Husaren Rgt Nr 17 94 - 98; 16 Kav Brig 99 - 91

ObstLt 18.07.96 M
Obst 25.03.99 H
GenMj 19.06.02 F
Char als GenLt 20.03.06 .... so this was Paul?
Kmdr Leib Garde Husaren Rgt; 33 Kav Brig 02; Kmdt v Breslau 06

I can't find anyhting on the thrid one.

Cheers

Thank you, Glenn.

I did see the Ldw BzKmdr Oldenburg but made the careless mistake of associating the position with the "youngest" -- RW or Austrian or Tannenburg (??) Gustav Adalbert 1884 - 1945. Of course a person born in 1884 would never be Mj 27.10.02 Tt or Char als GenMj 20.03.06.

Gustav Adalbert was not in Keilig, Sammlung Krug or Kabisch. Rather elusive.

Elwyn,

yes, Gustav-Adalbert was still an Oberleutnant at the outbreak of WW1. He spent much of the war in various General Staff appointments, although he briefly served as a company commander in Füslier-Regiment Nr. 33 in May to July 1916. He retired as a char. Major on 31 July 1922.
