Rittmeister Philipp Rudolph Graf von Ingelheim

Post by Jan-Hendrik » 06 Feb 2008 09:34

As far as I know he was an early recipent of the Pour le Merite, he got it for his involvement in the Battle of Lagarde on 11th August 1914 (for more on this battle have a look in here)...does anyone has the exakt date of his bestowal...and maybe a picture?

Hi Jan-Hendrik,

Oberleutnant der Reserve Phillip Rudolf Graf von Ingelheim gen. Echter von und zu Mespelbrunn of the 1. Ulanen-Regiment Kaiser Wilhelm II., König von Preußen was NOT a recipient of the Pour le Mérite.

Hi Glen, thanks for your input :D

So the mentioning on this Website
Rittmeister Philipp Rudolph Graf von Ingelheim erhielt für seine Aktionen in dieser Attacke als einer der ersten in diesem Kriege die Tapferkeitsauszeichnung "Pour le Mérite".
is ad defintitum wrong...

I found a Rittmeister Graf von Ingelheim in the early stages of the war, assigned to 78. Infanterie-Division as intelligence officer (Ic). He was Rittmeister since January 1st, 1939 (ranking 20th).
Was he the same? I'm taking any information someone could have about this captain of 1939-1940.

*Up"

Does anyone know who was exactly this Rittmeister Freiherr von Ingelheim that served as 78. Infanterie-Division Ic from August 26th, 1939 to October 23rd, 1940; then being the divisional Ib until spring 1941?
I'm especially looking for his positive first name and some information about his previous and later assignments.

Thank you for any help provided.
