Hi,

The Division was heading for or was around Meteren(Battle of the Lys) during these dates with three Reserve Infanterie Regiments-Nr.267,Nr.268 and Nr.269 together with the rest of it`s composition.I would very much appreciate either a Division or a Regiment account from the German perspective for the dates mentioned.Not writing a book but it is part of my direct family military research.

Regards,

George.

Comprehensive regimental histories (each of more than 400 pages) were written for RIR 267 and 269. They are:

Fritz von Bast, Königlich Preussisches Reserve Infanterie Regiment Nr. 267 im Grossen Krieg, (Zeulenroda: Sporn, 1936) and Max Eder, Das Preussisches Reserve Infanterie Regiment Nr. 269, (Zuelenroda: Sporn, 1937.)

Hoplophile,

Just the sort of sources required.It is always encouraging to know that such exists even if perhaps not easy to find.Thanks.

Hoplophile,

Worth a try but my usual search by title for both books has`nt come up with a possible library location in UK. Have found a copy of RIR 269 by Eder available in Germany for 60 Euros.Will approach the British Library directly and if either books are there a request could be made via the library exchange system.

George.
