A silly Question... 106R... am I correct in thinking this is the 106th Reserve and not 106 IR ?

The Holster is 1915 dated... so the Guy killed in 1914 is a miss, the 2nd Guy may be a hit? This is assuming (and it is a long shot) that he was a KIA... Even if the place is different, it is possible that a French soldier picked it up somewhere and took it home...

The only real way would be to find a list of the 106 I think....

There are 239 entries for Liebing in the genealogy.net database of Verlustlisten, which is 78% complete. That's killed, wounded or missing, and of course the same person can appear multiple times. It appears from the birthplaces that at least half of these are Saxons (and many of the others are from Thuringia or Prussian Saxony).

There are IR 106 and RIR 106 histories in the Erinnerungsblätter series. I have no idea if they have Ehrentafeln.
