Hello!

I´ve got an organization question.

Is it well known, to which divisions the single companies of the flamethrower bataillon/regiment were attached to?

In the regimental history some command-relations are mentioned, but not all of them.

I only have a generally list for the armies.

Regimental staff: to Heeresgruppe Kronprinz

Staff I.Btl.: Heeresgruppe bayerischer Kronprinz

Staff II.Btl.: XVIII.AK

Staff III.Btl.: Armeebateilung A, later Heeresgruppe Albrecht v. Württemberg

1.Kp.: 2.Armee, later 6.Armee

2.Kp.: 5.Armee, later 6.Armee

3.Kp.: 8.Armee, 18.Armee, Heeresgruppe Linsingen, 5.Armee, 7.Armee

4.Kp.: Armeeabteilung B, 5.Armee, XVII.Armee

5.Kp.: 5.Armee, 6.Armee

6.Kp.: 6.Armee, 5.Armee, 2.Armee

7.Kp.: 8.Armee, 5.Armee

8.Kp.: 7.Armee

9.Kp.: 18.Armee, 5.Armee, 7.Armee

10.Kp.: 6.Armee, 5.Armee, Armeeabteilung A

11.Kp.: 18.Armee, 5.Armee, 1.Armee

12.Kp.: 18.Armee, Armeeabteilung B

Rekrutendepot: Heeresgruppe dt. Kronprinz

Versuchsabteilung: Heersgruppe dt. kronprinz

 

For Verdun (21.2.-11.7.1917) I have the following commandings:

1.Kp. (21.Inf.Div.)

2.Kp. (14.Res.Div.)

3.Kp. (5.Inf.Div.)

6.Kp. (6.Inf.Div.)

8.Kp. (13.Res.Div.)

Res.Kp. (25.Inf.Div.)

4. and 5.Kp. (I77.Inf.Brog.)

7.Kp. (22.Res.Div. - Champagne)

Why do I ask???

I bought something and am stil waiting for it..... It should arrive until friday!

Prussian;

     I have quite a bit of information that should answer many of those questions, as I have accumulated, over 15 years,  data on most of the Flammenwerfer engagements of the G=R=P=R during the war, often including the unit they were attacking with or supporting. My father joined the Regiment in the second half of 1916, joining the 2nd Komp., the one company remaining at Verdun, most of the companies had gone north to the Battle of the Somme. (My father wrote that he was delighted to not have gotten into that mess. I think that in the first half of 1916 the 2. Komp. did more fighting at Verdun than any other company, so that they deserved a relative rest. Despite this, my father was wounded twice, once on Hill 304, and once on Dead Man's Hill, the latter on 12/28/16, in that counter-attack to push the French back on the hill-top. He lay in a French dugout for three days before being found.

     Since you collect stuff, you might be discouraged to hear that my father kept his sleeve skull and crossbones patch, but that it upset my mother and she threw it away.

Hello Bob!

Thanks for your post!

That´s very interestimng, your father served with the skullhead-pioneers!

Well, your mother swept the patch away, that´s sad, but I think she didn´t recognize, that someone would collect those items a hundred years later...

I didn´t buy something special, just a postcard with a voiew of the "Soldatenheim Stenay". But the reverse has a regimental stamp of the 7./Garde-Res.Pi.Rgt. The card was written july 9, and stamped july 10 in 1916. The sender, Lt. Hornung wrote, that his stay at the Maas is over and that he has to go to the Somme. According to the regimental history Lt. Hornung later served with the 11.company. The following battle after july 10 was the battle of Briache (july, 15). The 22.Res.Div was reliefed by the 1.Garde-Res.Div., but I don´t know the exatly date

Hello, Preuss!

I have been away from my WK I studies for about three years, and I have completed my assignment (building six gorgeous kitchens), and now am coming back. The name Leutnant Hornung seems familiar. When my father was with 2 Komp. they were stationed in Stenay-sur-Meuse, and the Crown Prince often dropped into the company (he and his father were patrons, with money as well as with influence), at least once with his father. (I had beer and pizza a while ago with Prince Fritz of Preuss, and told him a very amusing story about the visit of his grand-father and great-grand-father to 2 Komp., and he got a hoot out of it.) When I get back into these studies I will try to find out if I have anything on Hornung. I even might have his signature.

That would be brilliant, Bob! Thanks a lot in advance!

Here is the card. I wanted to show it, when it arrived, but I can take the ebay photo of the seller too (the photo of the card, not from the seller ;), the card is payed...:D

You can read "Hornung, Lt." in the 3rd scan in the post-stamp.

Hi;

Did he include his first name, or at least his first initial? My eyes are suffering at this hour.

I used to get material from the German Postal Collectors' Society. (Not sure about the exact name.) Heard about books

compiled that for different times over the war gives a correlation between Feldpost Stationen Nummern and various dates with the units, say divisions, where the post stations were located and served.

Got to go to bed, about to fall over.

 

My Father was Pion. Georg Lembke; served in 2nd Komp. late 1916, badly wounded, for a while associated with 2. Komp., then was certified as "fit for combat, but not with the flame-thrower" (from his Militaer=Pass), and went to Berlin to train new Flamm=Pioniern. Late in 1918 he wanted to get to the front, tricked the administration, and for his trouble was wounded two times again in a month of fighting. At the front he was in the 10. Komp. or 11. Komp. I have it in my materials. That was near Reims. 

My German probably horrible, haven't used it in about three years.

Hi Bob!

He writes only Hornung, Lt., but at the end of his letter he subscribed with August.

If Lt. Hornung stayed with the 11th company, maybe your father served with him???

It´s brilliant that stil have the Militärpaß from him! Did you show it almost here?

The stamp is from the Feldpoststation 45. I have a list of all of them in 1918. FPS 45 was located then in Saultain, Valenciennes.

I said, Lt. Hornung was mentioned twice in the regimental history.
 (see attachment)

Here are also two maps of the villages Berry-au-Bac and Le Godat (map 1) and Demicourt and Boversies on map 2 (correctly: Boursies!)

Heres is the text of the card:

Liebes Bäschen,

Meinen Aufenthalt an der Maas habe ich mit der Somme vertauschen müssen. So muß den V. ohne mein gütiges Zutun fallen. Aber auch hier gibts tüchtig Arbeit. Laß bald mal was von Dir hören, gell!

Herzl. Grüße, Dein Vetter August

Dear Bäschen (Bäschen minimization of Base = female cousin)

I had to change my stay at the Maas with the Somme. So V. (> Verdun) might fall without my kindly encouragement.

Here it will be efficient work too. Keep in touch soon, right. (Gell or gelle is south-german word for "right" or "o.k.")

best regards, your cousin August

Thank God !!

We Brits still issue military badges with skulls !!

My latest pick-ups are the 4 variations of officer/OR cap & beret skulls for the new 'Royal Lancers' regiment, formed in 2015.

Along with the regiment's tactical recognition flash.

A unit with a proud tradition dating back to the old 17th Lancers.

The unofficial patch in the last photo explains the regimental amalgamations over the years.

So ...................... the military skull insignia is still alive and well in this part of the world !!
