I would like a little background information for a future modelling project.Please can anyone tell me the whereabouts of this regt. early 1916. A brief history would be greatly appreciated.

It was located at the sector Tahure-Butte de Mesnil from December 1914 through end of April 1916. It occupied the sector throughout the winter without any notable action per the history of 251 German Divisions.

I need to go out for a bit and upon my return I will look into the regimental history to see if there is anything further regarding the regiment, uniforms or photos.

Roger,

I did a quick check in the regimental history. there are a few general area photos of rather a poor quality, no real photos of uniforms that show anything other than usual equipment you see in general photos of the period.

I looked through the text and while there was the occasional clash with the French, small French raids, etc. Nothing of any real consequence. I do not know what kind of scene you are representing but if there are any specific questions I might be able to help with just ask.

I look forward to seeing the finished product. Sorry I could not be of more help.

Thanks for looking Ralph. I chose to represent IR 40 because there are a couple of good photo's of men from this regt. in the first Osprey book on the German Army and in Brassey's German Army book. The figure I'm painting looks pretty similar.
