Order of battle of the 3rd Army August 1914:

Did the 23rd Honved really fall prisoner at Przemyśl?

Yes, that's correct. The whole division was captured at Przemysl. The four honvéd infantry regiment (Nr. 2., 5., 7. and 8.) was not reestablished at home, instead new regiments were formed with numbers above 300.

Very interesting indeed. But what happened to the members of the regiment after that? Since many of its members (aproximatly 60% were romanians), and the russians eliberated some Autro-Hungarian POWs to the Romanian Army, is that possible that thei have returned to their country after 1916 or 1917? Thank you again!
