Hi Peter,
Are you sure you've got the right Marno there? This website http://www.austriaca.at/oebl/oebl_M_4 gives an officer of that name as having died in 1893.
Cheers

Basically Peter is right, there seems to have been one Major Adolf Marno von Eichenhorst in Palestine.

Aus den k.u.k. Gebirgsartillerieregimentern No. 4 und 6 wird für den aktiven Kampfeinsatz in Palästina und an der Suez-Kanal Front eine Gebirgshaubitzdivision, nach ihrem Kommandanten, Major Adolf Marno von Eichenhorst benannt, die "k.u.k. Gebirgshaubitzdivision v. Marno", gebildet, die ab dem Sommer 1916 bis zum Kriegsende 1918 sämtliche Kämpfe in Palästina mitmacht.


Crude translation: A mountain howitzer regiment is formed out of mountain artillery regiments numbers 4 and 6 for active duty in Palestine and at the Suez canal front, named after its commander, Major Adolf Marno von Eichenhorst, the "k.u.k. mountain howitzer division von Marno", which takes part in all battles in Palestine from summer 1916 till the end of the war in 1918.

Source: http://www.albert-ottenbacher.de/sedlmayr/index.html

There the information is sourced with: Peter Jung, Die österreichisch-ungarischen Formationen in der Türkei 1915-1918, Österreichische Miltärgeschichte, 1995, Folge 2, Die k.u.k. Streitkräfte im Ersten Weltkrieg 1914-1918, Vienna 1995, p. 9 -- Peter, maybe you can get hold of this one?

Thank you Grisu, for confirming that one. So I guess our Marno was probably a descendant or relation of the Marno I found, and probably named after him?

Gentlemen,

the surname is 'Marno von Eichenhorst.
Grisu wrote:"k.u.k. Gebirgshaubitzdivision v. Marno"

I don't believe they gave the division the christian name of the CO.

Basic genealogic info can be found in v. Stratowa (ed.), Wiener genealogisches Taschenbuch (Wien: v. Stratowa, 1926-1937, also available on microfiche):
- Marno von Eichenhorst: VI (1934), p. 127, 185
- Lager: III (1929/1930), p. 117; V (1933), p. 86
Maybe one of our Austrian members with access to a good library can look this up (there is only vol. VIII in my library)?

Thank you for posting that one Tosun. It's a great link. I'm sure there's much research that needs doing in Hungarian archives, only the language is so difficult..

Cheers

Thanks Glenn for the biog info, great stuff. I wonder if this photo is Adolf Marno von Eichenhorst entering Jerusalem? The insignia seems to be that of a Major, and he would be the only Austrian Major there wouldn't he?
