Pat, the bit you cannot read-

„verstorben sei nach Verwundung infolge Bauchschußes durch Gewehrgeschoß. (Stunde des Todes nicht angegeben)“

Well, that´s strange. Once Liebchenz, once Liebehenz. But I think the official documents are right. So Liebehenz will be right.

In the manual scripts he is written "Liebehenze"

Thank you Andy and Charlie for your help.  I haven't been on much, even though we are locked down for the last week here in Greece and I'm just in the house. I work on the Regiment History and search for photos of the battle, the area, the uniform.  I would like to find where he is buried, but so far the Volksbund has no record of him. Is it safe to assume that since he died in the hospital, there would have been a record of where he was buried?  So many soldier's cemeteries in that area, so many deaths.  I can't conceive of the scope.    If anyone has guidance on how/where to search, please let me know.     With all best wishes for health and safety. Pat

He may have been repatriated to be buried at home. Another possibility is that he is buried in the East and most of those graves are either lost or are not online.

Well, that´s a good question. Buried in Hamburg (where he lived) or in Sandershausen (where he was born). I don´t think he was buried in East-Prussia.

The regimental history writes, that the "Ersatz" of the regiment came in peacetime to 50% from East-Prussia, the rest from Brandenburg, Westphalia and from Hanseatic cities, during the war from East-Prussia, Berlin, Hamburg, Lübeck, Bremen and Alsatians and Lorraines

Hello

 

I also have Najork's history of the Schweres Reserve Reiter Regiment Nr. 2 (SRR2).

 

I'd be interested to see what your book on the battles in the Champagne has to say about this units role in the action of 25-27 Sept 1915

Have you read „Kämpfe in der Champagne“ ? https://digi.landesbibliothek.at/viewer/image/AC05992094/1/LOG_0000/

Hi everyone, i know that the first post is old now, but i'm highly interested about the history of the Landwehr-Infanterie-Regiment Nr. 56.

My great grandfather was in this regiment during WWI. Is it possible to get a copy of the book or any document related ?

 

Thanks !

There actually is a regimental history:

 

  • Werner Oelze: "Das Landwehr-Infanterie-Regiment Nr. 56 im Weltkrieg", Erinnerungsblätter Preussen, Bd. 318, Berlin 1930, 111 Seiten.

The Regimental history is available from Patrick in digital form for 5€ if you don‘t want to buy the book or obtain it through your local library.

Oh thank you so much, i didn't know that website ! Is the digital form exactly similar to the book ?

Because the book seems rare and is a bit expensive (around 200 euros on ebay).

Yes, the pages are scanned directly from the books and saved in PDF format.
