KIR Posted 7 October , 2013 Share Posted 7 October , 2013 Hello, I have a (german) photograph with a captured British Major. On the backside is writen: "Interrogation of an English Major at the command post of the embankment of Jussy. 23rd march 1918. Lieutenant-Colonel (and regimental commander) von Huth, Kings-Infantry-Regiment No. 145 (6th Lorraine)" The Königs-Inf.-Rgt. Nr.145 was a part of the prussain 34th infantry-division (XVI army corps) and fought in the early 1918 on the Westfront south of Saint-Quentin (Urvillers, Benay, Jussy). During this time the 14th (Light) Division (42nd Brigade) was in this sector; see map here (or link here). In the german regimental history is writen, that on the 23rd of march 1918, the 7th company captured around 200 British soldiers, including some staff officers and a major. Unfortunately nothing more. Is there a way to find out from which unit this major was? Perhaps from the 9th Battalion, King's Royal Rifle Corps??? I will be very appreciate for any information! Thank you and best regards, Jens Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
