Hello, I got an Artillerie Waffenrock of the 64th Artillerie Regiment of the 5th Batterie but I haven't been able to find anything on this unit whatsoever.  Any help would be appreciated
Thanks
John

There is information on Art.Rgt 64 at the Lexikon website whose link has been provided on some of the other forums where you have posted this request. I would say that it would be difficult to find any in depth details but you could always trawl through the archives and see if there is any mention of them in the War Diaries of the units it served under.

 

Major Walter Kuhn commanded II/Art.Rgt 64 until 31st Oct 1935. It is a common name so tracking any details down for the actual soldier without any further details might prove very difficult.

What archives would I need to look through?

Thanks

NARA in the US and BA-MA in Germany. Possibly even the Russian archives who are starting to publish stuff online.

Start with NARA as they have some, not all, German Army officer records.

 The soldier who wore that Waffenrock wasn't an officer, he was a Kanonier.

I second hucks216 opinion und would like to add that his name was not Kuhn but Kühn.
