I have just been looking a a small trench map of the Battle of Bellewaard 16 June 1915, and the British trenches are facing the 246 & 248 P.I.R. what would the P.I.R stand for, could it be 'Prussian Infantry Regiment'

Hello,

It was RIR 246 and RIR 248 (54th Reserve Division)

(RIR - Reserve Infantry Regiment).

In fact they were Württembergers and not Prussians.
