Need some info on Prussian officers

Postby Svennie » 13 May 2018 18:52

Hello fellow forum members,

below are some Prussian officers who were Erzieher at the Hauptkadettenanstalt for a disproportionately long time of 6 years or more, where the average tour was around three years. I am trying to prove or disprove my assumption that this reflected badly on their career opportunities, but in some cases I lack information. Could you help me out?

My questions are what the final rank was of these officers and when they were pensioned/zur Disposition gestellt etc.

1) Bach, IR 26, Erzieher in Culm 1872-1732, at HKA 1874-1878
2) Lau, IR58, Lt 12.7.66, Oblt 13.4.72, Hptm 13.3.80, Maj 14.5.90 St.IR95
3) Heim, IR 118 Erzieher HKA 1872-1877
4) Von Crousaz, GR6. Transferred to IR59 in 1874, in 1875 to Kadettenhaus in Oranienstein as Assistent.
5) Carsted, IR64, started 1867 in Wahlstatt, 1870-1872 HKA
6) Von Francois, Lt 7.7.68, Oblt 15.10.74, Hptm 12.6.83 in IR28, Maj.24.3.90 Obtslt 16.6.96 et.St.Offz.IR70
7) Ziedrich, IR 20, Lt 14.10.69, Oblt 11.11.76, Hptm 15.2.85 in Kadettenhaus Culm, 1891 Hptm in IR 20
8) Brinkmann, IR41, Lt 10.8.68, Oblt 15.1.76, Hptm 13.1.83 a la suite IR41 & Lehrer Kriegsschule Hannover
9) Von Both, IR 82, Lt 9.2.69 Oblt 10.2.77 Hptm 13.3.84 in IR82
10) Stern, GR 3, appears in 1873 Rangliste for the first time. Later IR83
11) Von Grumbkow, GR 11. There were two with this name in the same regiment. I am looking for the one as Erzieher at HKA ~1878-1883

Thank you very much in advance for your help!
Best regards,

Sven
