I was think it is Generalmajor Adolf Hansmann. Gefallen Zugna Torta 28 June 1916? However, I have his birth date as 12 October 1861.

Hansmann is listed with RDA 12.10.1878 as Cadet. So I would assume that 1861 is the right year of birth.

Ah! I read 'died as active Generalmajor' to mean he was killed in action. The search continues.
