Translation of rank

The Prussian

Recommended Posts


I´ve got a book that belonged to Capitaine de Latude from 32nd french Inf.Div.

The ranklist of the division says:  Capitaine de complément : capitaine de compagnie de Latude


What is a Capitaine de complément? Capitaine de compagnie is clear, but from which company?

Could it be the old term of reserve officer?

Thanks a lot in advance
