General d. Art. Friedrich v. Campe

Post by Elwyn W » 04 Mar 2012 19:52

This comes from an offizier of IR 43.

It looks like [GenLt Constantin] v. Altrock and [GenMj Friedrich] v. Campe to me. (v. Campe rose to the rank of Gen. d. Art. in RW).
I have v. Altrock's last command as Kdr. 56. ID but only had v. Campe as Kdr. of RW 6. ID in 1920.

The bearded general certainly looked like v. Altrock. Can anyone make out the last few words? Could there be a connection to IR 43 which was, I think, part of 1. ID late in the war?

Cheers
Elwyn

Hi Valdis,

I have been looking for him for years too! :P :P

As Dieter would say, a direct hit!!

14 FA-Brig. was part of 14. ID during most of WW1. And the Kdr. of 14. ID ( and v. Campe succeeeded him) was none other than v. Altrock 25.05.15 - 30.12.15.

Cheers
Elwyn
