Dear Friends -

In an obituary from Vienna in 1916, a relative is described as:

k.u.k. Militär-Rechnungsoberoffizial

roughly translated as 'royal and imperial military officer of the audit'

I am just wondering if this was a civilian position or military rank. The family story is that he was a senior army officer.

Thanks -
