Here a nice one. Who is that Oberst? He reached rank of Generalmajor one year before WW1 ended.

Another member of the family reached the rank of full general 56 years later.

I would go out on a limb here and say it's Lelio Spanocchi! :lol: :lol: (Mind you, it could be a cunning plan with a false file name)

Kind regards,

According to my files, there were only 3 k.u.k. Fmlt. who served in the Republic:

Adolf von Boog (C-in-C Volkswehr)
Karl Freiherr Czapp von Birkenstetten (Retired 1 Nov 1920)
Maximilian Ritter von Hoen (Director of the Military Archives)

From facial recognition, I would say that your man is Boog.

Kind regards,

VJK
