Hi Steve,

Yes, they are 2 different men, because the second one is PEIPER, not Pieper.

Hello Glenn,
bought this one on eBay. It is Oberst Meister, Kommandeur Infanterieregiment 101!
Is this our man? Do you know something about his part during the Herero "war" he received the PLM for?
Kind regards

He distinguished himself as the commander II./2. Feldregiment (beritten) in the engagements against the Hottentots 1904/05. According to the recommendation for the PLM as described in the Hildebrandt/Zweng history of the PLM, the engagements at Naris, Ganachas, Stamprietfontein and Groß-Nabas are cited. His outstanding personal conduct at Groß-Nabas was said to have been a major influence on the troops under his command.

On the right is Charakter als Konteradmiral Johannes Horn.

Hello,
my Foto 141 on page 4 most likely is later Generalleutnant Karl von Stumpff (Pour le Merite)!
Could anyone confirm this?
Kind regards

I should think not. Karl v. Stumpff was already a Generalmajor and field artillery brigade commander before the war. This fellow is an infantry field officer.
