This is a mini group of documents for a doctor who served in WW I and WW II. This man’s name was Richard Stumpf. He was a Bavarian, born in Wurzburg in 1886. The documents include:
Document for the 1914 Iron Cross 1st Class. The document is dated 22 May 1920. The document was signed from the office of Bavarian Feld-Artillerie-Regiment Nr 3.
Document for the Army Wound Badge in Silver for three wounds. This document is dated 27 May 1919 and was signed by the Regimental Commander of Bavarian Feld-Artillerie-Regiment Nr 3, who was by this time an Oberst and not a Hauptmann.
Document for the Golden Wedding Anniversary Medal for King Ludwig III. This document is dated 1923.
Document for the Hindenburg Cross with Swords for Combatants. This document was awarded 18 April 1935.
Document dated 14 August 1940, which recaps Stumpf’s service in WW I. It also mentions his award of the Army Silver Wound Badge and the Hindenburg Cross with Swords. Interestingly, it makes no mention of his award of the 1914 Iron Cross 1st Class as referenced above.
It is a very fine group of documents to an officer. The most interesting documents are for the post WW I award of the 1914 Iron Cross 1st Class and the Silver Army Wound Badge.
