Hi AnDie, All I can find on Oberst Felix Reichardt is that in 1917-1918 he was Chief of Staff of Saxon Corps 2. From April 1,1918 to Jan 10, 1919 he was Commander of Brigade 88, (Saxon Brig 7 ). Jan 10, 1919 to May 16, 1920 he was commander of Brigade 11, in Wehrkreis 5, and still an Oberst. Apparently he was retired at that time, as I find no more mention of his name. Best regards, HFK

Hi again AnDie, I forgot to mention that over 600 Obersts, the majority Prussian, were promoted to Major-gen on their retirement after the war, most of them in 1919. Oberst Reinhardt must have been promoted in 1920, as it looks he retired that year. Regards, HFK

AnDie,
What is the award SMEK? Sachsen-Meiningisches Ehrenkreuz für Verdienst im Krieg?
- correct
KP = Kgl. Preuß.?
- correct. Reichardt was a company commander in 1. Pion.-Bat. Nr. 12 at the time of this assignment.

General Reichardt was born in Leipzig. I do not know where he died.

Thank you, Glenn.
When he was company commander in 1. Pion.-Bat. Nr. 12? Until 1907?
Do you know when he joined the army?

Andie,

01.04.04: zum Generalstabe des XII. (1. K.S. Armeekorps) kommandiert
23.04.04: zum Generalstabe des XII. (1. K.S. Armeekorps) versetzt
23.03.05-21.05.07: Chef 4./Pionier-Bataillon Nr. 12

Promoted to Portepee-Fähnrich from Unteroffizier in Pionier-Bataillon Nr. 12 on 20.11.88 so presumably joined the Saxon Army in early 1888.

Regards
Glenn
