Biography

Georg von Braun was a career officer who began his military training in 1904. He served with the Gotland Artillery Corps since 1906. As a captain he was transferred to Karlsborg’s Artillery Regiment in 1930 and in 1933 was a major with the Göta Artillery Regiment. In 1942 he joined Stockholm’s Air Defense Reserve Regiment, retiring in 1950 as a colonel. In 1920-21 he was appointed Honorary Attaché at the Swedish Embassy in London. After winning the gold medal with the Swedish team in 1920 in the three-day event, he was a member of the victorious Swedish show jumping team in 1924 at Paris, but von Braun’s score did not count. He was the father of Karl Axel Georg Detlow von Braun, who competed in sailing at Kiel during the 1936 Olympics.
