    Hi Guys,

    here is a dog tag of Ernst Kruetzfeldt from Kiel. Looks like he was called up to I.Ers.MGK of IX. AK and went after training to MGSS-Tr. 36.  By Oct.1st, 1916 MGSS-Tr.36 was transformed into 3rd comp. of MGSSA of 4th Army.IMG_1941.thumb.jpeg.06dafa36b3ada9112d47270680e2a38b.jpeg

    Salut Thierry!

    Here are some photos of IR146.

    The coloured photo shows my grand-uncle. 1916 he promoted to Lt.d.Res. in IR155, then he came to IR146. With this regiment he was wounded in Macedonia. Unfortunately I don´t know, in which regiment this photo was taken.
