Polish General

Thanks,

here is an interesting one. Not all former A-H officers joined the Austrian or German Armies. This former k.u.k. Infantry Regiment 11 Hauptmann joined the Polish Army and rose to command a division. Who am I?

Glenn

Ok folks,

a little clue: Although not wearing it here, he did win the Knight's Cross of the Military Maria-Theresia Order in WW1.

Stanislaus Wieroński

Post by Glenn2438 » 24 Jan 2004 18:46

Near enough!

General Stanislaus Wieroński, born 29 July 1883 at Zolkiew in Galicia. He was awarded the MMThO at a post war investiture for his conduct while commanding III./IR.11 on the Isonzo in May 1917. He rose to the rank of Major General in the Polish army and retired in 1935.

Your turn.

Uniform

Post by Glenn2438 » 24 Jan 2004 20:44

Thanks Robert,

Very interesting relatives and a super photograph!

Now for a uniform and insignia question. What is the exact rank and appointment of this individual. What are the uniform distinctions that denote that appointment?

Regards
Glenn

No idea bout the appointment but what's the first order? Looks like a mixture between St.Stephans and Verdienstkreuz?

Verdienstkreuz

it appears to be a Gold or Silver Merit Cross with Crown.
