The Grenadier Regiment 185 in the area Beeringen - Antwerpen Breda on Sept. 44 ?Panzer Mooyman wrote:We just got information back from the Deutsche Dienststelle. We are looking for information about a relative.
Truppenteil: laut Meldung vom 29.10.1944, 6. Kompanie, Division 185.
Thing is I cant find anything about a Division 185, it is not listed on Feldgrau and Lexikon der Wehrmacht. We do know that he was taken POW in the area Beeringen - Antwerpen - Breda. The only logical idea came to my mind is that they ment the Grenadier-Regiment 185 which was in the area under the command under Generalleutnant Chill.
What also is strange is that the listed place of birth is Knock/Hann. which I translate to a small village near Hannover, Ger. While we know the person in question is Dutch.
All help is welcome.
