Here is a great shot of men marching into hell... arriving at Verdun during the height of the battle... they would remain for 2 months......fs.thumb.jpg.2a5ce118c4e14cea0cd9e970b711dbe7.jpg

Great photo.  And very poignant knowing where they were going.

A two month stint -but I suspect that many stayed there. :(

The Gefechtskalender for RIR 88 has them there from 15 July to 2 September. 

There are 1826 names in the Verlustlisten for RIR 88 between August 1916 and the end of October (there's a lag of a few weeks between the loss itself and the publication of the list).  That includes two big lists on 11.9.1916 with 1300 names and on 26.9.1916 with 341 names. 

Some of the entries are corrections to earlier entries (e.g. from MIA to KIA), but that's roughly 1800 killed/wounded/missing in seven weeks of combat.
