Sid, I agree with you on the main point : Infanterie Regiment 38 was created before April 1936. The only thing I disagree with is that at this time (October 1934-October 1935) the (codenamed) German divisions had only two infantry regiments (so they were numbered from 1 to 42). A third regiment appe...

Sid,

I only found IR 38 in 1936, when it joined the newly raised 28. Infanterie Division (Wehrkreis VIII). That's why I think it was not a Wehrkreise V, VI or IX regiment.

All the best,

Damn ! If King Shadow himself can't help me, I'm completely done :wink:

I also have the regimental lists for 1938 (roughly the same than Summer 1939 ones). It doesn't matter, I'll try to find it by other means.

Hope all is ok in Shadowland, your Highness :wink:

Your friend,

Loïc

Divisional organization before October 1934 and 1935

Hello Feldgrauians ! Is anyone able to provide me the divisional composition before the changes of falls 1934 and 1935 ? I just need an infantry regiments list per division. For instance, for Wehrkreis I units : Before October 1934 : - 1 : 1 22 - 11 : 2 23 - 21 : 3 24 Before October 1935 : - 1 : 1 2...

Aachen on the Belgian border: II/39 Infantry Battalion. Trier on the Luxemburg border: I/38 Infantry Battalion. Saarbrucken on the French border: II/38 Infantry Battalion or II/17 Infantry Battalion. Very interesting Sid! Thanks for sharing this with us! It's weird though, because I believed that a...

Hello Commissar ! Do you have some information linked to the change of status of the 78. Infanterie Division in 78. Sturm Division early 1943 ? I'm really interested in knowing what was the reason(s) to change its name : psychological, organizational, because it deserved an honor title (I think both...

Jason, I'm very interested in this topic too. Please let me know if you find your notes ;) Is that you on this picture ? So, a real S.W.A.T. policeman rules this forum ? Terrific :D Sid, Could you tell me what are your sources concerning the Saarland plebiscite of 1935 ? I'm interested in this event...

Michi, Sid, Great information, but some elements are contradictory between Michi's article and Dr. Niehorster's OoB (for instance, Michi indicates 12 Fiat CR.32bis for each Jasta - 36/3 - whereas Leo says only six per squadron). Who's right ? ;) Anyway, thanks for your help and time, guys ! Cheers, ...

Sid,

Sorry about the confusion. I know nothing about the parade of 1935, but it seems weird to me that Hitler sent significant Heer units during it. Probably no more than paramilitary (SS and SA).

All the best,

Hi Sid, Take all the time you need, this is not an urgent work ;) I'm very interested in your information about the embryonic Austrian airforce in 1934-1936, because I suppose that the well-known organization in two Fliegerregimenter (with several Jasta, Bomba, Schulsta and Aufklsta) was that of the...

I confirm Dackelstaffel's information : there were only three battalions involved in this operation, from Wehrkreise V, VI and IX (I don't know from which regiment/division, except that it was for sure among the following ones : 5. or 15. Infanterie Divisionen for the first ; 6. or 16. Infanterie Di...

Austrian Luftstreitkräfte 1936-1938

Hello Feldgrauians ! Does anyone have information about the Austrian Air Force of the First Republic (1918-1938) ? I'm especially looking for : 1) when these "Luftstreitkräfte" were raised ? I assume it was in 1936, when the Austrian Bundesheer expanded to face the threats which endangered the young...
