I am not sure if this is the right bit but here goes anyway.

I am looking for the regimental commanders of the following Infantry regiments, who were present on the Ypres-Comines Canal in May 1940:

Infantry Division 31:
(Infantry Regiment) IR 12, IR 17 and IR 82

Infantry Division 61:
IR 151, IR 162 and IR 176

Any help with this is much appreciated.
