DOCUMENT FOR THE FRIEDRICH-AUGUST MEDAL IN BRONZE – SAXONY

SKU: 06-113

$125.00

This is a very fine document for the Friedrich-August Medal in Bronze from Saxony. It is dated 30 November 1917. A staff officer by the name of Walter Keller earned it. He served in III. Abteilung Feldartillerie Regiment Nr 279. The document bears the signature and unit stamp for Infantry Division Nr 212. The signature is from a Generalmajor, whose name appears to be Francke. This was not an especially high-ranking decoration. It is unusual to see it signed by a generalmajor and Division Kommandeur so late in the war. Keller must have been well-thought-of, since documents such as these would often have been signed by just Bataillon or regimental commanders.
