Footnote: Ludwig Ruidisch was born in 1868. He began his military service in 1893 as a military surgeon in the 17th Bavarian Infantry Regiment. In 1900 and 1901, Ruidisch served in China as a member of the 4th East Asian Infantry Regiment during the boxer rebellion and was therefore awarded with the China Medal of Imperial Germany. Before the outbreak of the First War, he was the regiment’s chief medical officer in several regiments. During the First War, Ruidisch started out as the chief medical officer of Bavarian Field Military Hospital 8, before being appointed chief medical officer of the 6th Bavarian Reserve Division. Ruidisch was awarded both classes of the Iron Cross. In 1920, his active military service ended and he returned to his home in Augsburg, Bavaria to work in a private practice for the next ten years. He then became the chief physician of the Augsburg volunteer fire brigade and also began working for the German Red Cross. Ruidisch was officially retired in 1934. Nevertheless, he kept working for the DRK. His successful path in the organisation is outlined by the documents in this collection and doesn’t need to be repeated here. However, Ruidisch’s dedicated commitment throughout the war exhausted him and depleted his life force. At the end of the war, he was already in his late 70s, yet he never stepped down to enjoy his well-earned retirement. The hardships of the aftermath of the war only exacerbated his health’s decline. Ruidisch died not long after, in 1946.
