Karl Freiherr Czapp von Birkenstetten

Post by Orok » 21 Jan 2004 15:17

This is an old postcard showing Generalmajor Karl Freiherr Czapp von Birkenstetten on Galicia Front in May 1915. I am curious as to the white metal badge he wears on his general's pikegray field keppi, just below the front button. It looks to me like a Polish eagle. Was Czapp Polish by birth? Did he hold any command in the Polish Legion?

Thanks and Best Regards!
