Super pass! Many units, fronts, actions. Really interesting historical timeline.

 

I found it particularly interesting that Gebirgs-Artillerie-Abteilung Nr.5 and Nr.6 shared the same Ersatz Abteilung. I think these units were a mixture of troops from Bavaria, Württemberg and Prussia.

Thanks, mates!

The second last photos are:

White paper: That says, he has to pay taxes to the district.

Red paper: It documents that he did change his adress. He moved from Hesse to Westphalia

Andy,

Where was this Hill 1114 located? Ah, OK I found this report from the 12.Isonzo battle.

"Der linke Flügel der Gruppe Stein greift nach Überrennung der vordersten Talstellung südwestlich Tolmein zusammen mit der Gruppe Berrer die feindliche Hauptstellung auf dem Kolovrat-Rücken an. Stürmende Infanterie klettert von der 160 m hohen Talsohle im feindlichen Feuer die steilen Hänge bis über 1000 m empor. Die Gipfel des Kolovrat bilden in dem stark befestigten Stellungsknoten bei Höhe 1114 den Schlüsselpunkt dieses ganzen Systems. Bereits am Nachmittag kann der Sturm gegen Punkt 1114 und das benachbarte Massiv des Haefnik angesetzt werden. Weiter südlich bricht die Stellung des Jeza-Blockes im Angriff der Gruppe Berrer zusammen. Unablässig drückt der Südflügel der Armee (Gruppe Scotti) über den Hrad Vrh gegen die Kette des Globocak vor. Eiserne Meißel hat General v. Below angesetzt gegen die Felsblöcke der Julischen Alpen. Teutonenkräfte bohren und schlagen, Löcher werden zu klaffenden Lücken. Wie eine eherne Maschine arbeitet die Armee an den Granitwällen der Berge, frißt sich tief hinein durch Hindernis und Beton. Sie arbeitet genau nach Überlegung und Plan."

Thats a pretty cool pass! For both Moi and Irish Gunner!!

Absolutely!  Not just Gebirgs-Artillerie, but also Kolovrat - I've hiked those mountains on the border of Slovenia and Italy.

And he lived 20 minutes from my home. ..

By the way: Rommel fought the same time at the same place at hill 1114 with the WGB!

Andy, actually reading Rommel's book Infantrie Greift An gave me the motivation to hike the area while living in the region. The mountains around Kobarid/Capparetto and the Isonzo Front are what really got me interested in WWI and collecting in a more focused way.  Not to mention it's a very beautiful area.  Worth a trip.

Andy, I've never been very good at preserving my adventures on film.  Sadly, I have no personal photos to share.  The internet should yield some great images...and a website...Open Air Museum Kolovrat

 

Museo all

These are very good-looking photos! Now imagine, you´d been there end of october. Probably the green had turned into white... and instead of beer you´d rather been drinking mulled wine...

Andy, I climbed Mt. Krn on 11 Nov for a Remembrance Day ceremony and yes it was white! But the drink was a Hungarian pepper palinka.

I have read the book this week and had the same thoughts! :-)

They would have supported the Leib Regt when Schörners 12th Company took Höhe 1114!!!

I see from the map that the 3.Jäger Regiment was well represented. :thumbup:
