Marcus,

IR 29 was part of 31 Brigade,16 Infantrie Division(Rhineland)in 1914.

The 31 Brigade,detached, fought at Langemarck,November 1914.

Hauptmann Heinz von Pflugk-Hartung commanded the HQ at the Eden Hotel were Karl Liebknecht and Rosa Luxemburg were first detained,later murdered.His brother,Leutnant Horst von Pflugk-Hartung(1889-1967) a former naval officer, also served with him in the Sturmkompangie.

Both brothers,among others,were acquitted of the murders.

Regards,
Peter

Apparently the correct spelling of his last name is Pflugk-Harttung.

I also asked in the Aerodrome forum and got the below additional info:

First, the correct spelling of his name is Pflugk-Harttung, Oblt. Heinz (O):

KG 4/Ks 22 (Jun16) - 12Nov16
KG 7/Ks 39 C.O. 12Nov16 - 1Jan17
Schusta 15 C.O. 1Jan17 - (Mar17)
AFP 1 (??) - 21Aug18
FA 252(A)w C.O. 21Aug18 -

And as Stogieman stated, KIA on 26Mar20.

This link(in German) states he was Chef eines Nachrichtenbüros im Reichswehrstab in der Bendlerstraße(Chief of the Reichswehr Press Office at the Bendlerstrasse?)

The Kapp Putsch that had occurred on the 13-17th March 1920 appears to have unleashed some payback on both sides for past transgressions.
