Greetings all,

I came across an individual's reference about the 4th company L 40th Regiment being detached to "Marsh Regiment Passavant", with duty in the East. This is roughly early 1916. Does anyone know what Marsh Regiment Passavant is? I have exhausted all my searches and turn to the experts for any assistance.

Thank you!

Bavarian Oberst Friedrich Passavant was attached to the staff of the stellvertrende 4.Infanterie-Brigade from 3.10.1915 to 8.5.1916, when he was named commander of Bavarian Reserve-Infanterie-Regiment Nr. 22. It seems likely your unit was a temporary march regiment of replacement units and troops being transferred to the front.
