I think I have show this pic before but it was before the excellent Lundstr?m/Krause books was published

This officer has a Hohenzollern device on his ribbon swords/crown but where does he come from ?

It says 255 on his shoulder boards , but I cant find anything about Inf Rgt 255 on the net, was it a preussian unit?

what rank has he ?

Wonder if I could find him in the Hohenzollern book :P

:cheers: Glenn!

The HOH3X Roll as published in the 1990s was a "war security" gazetting of names and ranks WITHOUT UNITS after 1916.

Daniel has been doing phenomenal work expanding and adding to that.

RIR 255 was from Westphalia. It belonged to 77th Reserve Division on the Russian Front 1915-17 but ended the war in 83rd Division in France.

Carnuth also got the L?beck Hanseatic Cross in 1918.

So MANY Reserach Gnome Projects working towards completion this year. :catjava:
