    Looking for an army unit that had either a Brunswick Oldenburg connection/affiliation or possibly even a Schaumburg Lippe, Brunswick, Oldenburg affiliation.

    There are a lot of Brunswick and Oldenburg connections, as they were in the same corps area.

    Among infantry units, IR 368, IR 411, IR 465 and REIR 4 all were formed from X.AK units from Hannover, Brunswick and Oldenburg. I don't know about cavalry, artillery or other units, but there were probably some. Also someone assigned to corps or stellvetretende corps HQ.

    Schaumburg-Lippe was in the VII.Korpsbezirk in Westphalia. I don't know of any units that were mixed with them and X.AK units. You could have another connection, like birth/citizenship, though.

    Thanks for the info. Its a nice bar to a very brave man. Notice he didn't feel the need to jazz it up with a bunch of the "I was there" add-ons that you see on a lot of post war bars. I wonder which 1st class awards he had?
