Firstly, I apologise for taking an in ordinary amount of time to post the 'next question', but my hard drive crashed the day after I answered the previous question and I have only received my lap top back from the repairer.

Anyway, the next question: I finished the war as a kriegsdauer activated Feldmarschalleutnant. He was a one time commandant of the 4. kavallerie-Division.

Regards,
Ian
