wow.... nice find!!!

Any interesting entries on the battle pages?

... not mine and no battle pages.

It was a simple "Erweiterung zum Militarpass".

If the actual Militarpass would have been part of it, it would have been a super score.

Hello!

The FK Hindenburg was set-up feb., 13th, 1919 in Kolberg to protect the GHQ. It came from the protection-company of the GHQ (Sturm-Btl. 2, 5 and 7). In march it was raised to:

I. Sturmbataillon (later in october it became II./RW-Inf.Rgt.110 in Celle)

II. Garde-Gren.Btl. (from Garde-Gren.Rgt.5 Spandau - it became later in october IV./RW-Inf.Rgt.102 in Kolberg)

Kavallerie-Regiment:

1. (Drag.Rgt.16 Lüneburg)

2. (Jg.z.Pf.Rgt.5 Mülhausen)

3. (Garde-Ulanen-Rgt.2 Berlin)

The badge from FK Hindenburgf was "Collar-oakleaves with an "H"

Leader was Hauptmann Otto

They fought battles in Hannover and became later under command of the Division Münster during the action in the Ruhr-area (where I live...) At the beginning of those fight, they stood between Münster and Lüdinghausen. (By the way, my grandfather served in the FK Wesel, but he left in early 1919)

The Gruppe Division Münster was led by Generalmajor v. Preinitzer

The Untergruppe Hannover was led by Oberst Freiherr v. Ledebur

The II./Res.Inf.Rgt.110 (I don´t know, why it´s called here "Reserve" - source: Darstellungen aus den Nachkriegskämpfen dt. Truppen und Freikorps, vol.9) with the Sturm-Btl. 2,5 and 7 were increased by 4./Res.Art.Rgt.10.

The map is from "Das Buch vom deutschen Freikorps-Kämpfer".

Note: The town south of Münster is called "Lüdinghausen"! The written-down town "Lüdenschd" für "Lüdenscheid is wrong! Lüdenscheid is south of Hagen
