Hello!

Do you have stuff from Hitlers regiment?

He served with bavarian 16th reserve regiment "List"

I´ve got a card, written by Oberstleutnant Petz, once regimental commander of the regiment

Nice soldier artwork on the obverse. It takes lots of viewing time to find these gems!

It just caught my eyes at ebay, Chip... Unfortunately Adolphus didn´t paint the picture...

I got myself last week a Militärpaß from (Bayr.) R.I.R.16 to a soldier who got wounded at the Somme in the same place as AH. (La Barque, if my memory serves me).

Hello!

Would you show it, please?

The regiment came to the Somme sept. 25, 1916 (Frémicourt until october 2)

October 3, Adolf got light wounded by an artillery attack on an underground way. He recieved just a few scratches.

October 5 he got wounded near La Barque

Here you see the regimental staff (small "flag") in La Barque (taken from the regimental history):

The pass is quite interesting, he first saw frontline duty in (Bayr) R.I.R.16 from mid 1915 onwards until he got in mid 1917 a transfer to I.R.2 after recovering from his wounds he sustained at the Somme.

He was wounded 17.7.1916 at Fromelles.

After recovery he was sent to the Somme and was wounded 12.10.1916 at La Barque (7 days after Adolf Hitler was wounded).

 

Recipient of the E.K.2.



Reason I post first the picture of his transfers is that it was not obvious on the sales description neither the stamps he served in RIR 16 the majority of his war, but is clearly visible in his transfers and wounds as well in his combat chronicle from RIR 16.

The entries seem to be mainly from the time he was in I.R.2. by the looks of the dates when the entries have been written.

Ah, ok, thank you!

So he served 14 months with that regiment. I checked the regimental history. He is not mentioned.

And another one...

The front shows a fallen soldier with the words:

His last journey. Dedicated to the bavarian Res.Inf.Rgt. Nr.16 "List" from H.R. Reder and C. Raundorf, Munich

The reverse:

List-Regiment-celebration-evening, November 28, 1915.

Unfortunately, the regimental history doesn´t mention that event.

It seems so...

The card was made for the wintertime. Maybe the date is in common with the last sunday before Advent commemorating the dead. In 1915 it happened november 21.

And two badges!

1) regimental pin (probably from the  20s or 30s)

2) Fahnenweihe (consecration of the colours)
