Memories of the 94. Infantry Division during the campaign in France, 1940.
Fortunately, during June 8, 1940, the IR 267 (Oberst Thomas) rejoined the Division, attached to the 62. ID in a fast attack had advanced from Ham and conquered Guiscard, and now at least could replace the IR 274.
On June 8, 1940 the Division was no longer subordinate to the V AK and was transferred to the IV AK under the command of General der Inf v. Schwedler. With the General and his staff was achieved a working relationship and trust. The line Ecuvilly - Catigny was retained. In the night from 8 to 9 June 1940, the IR 267 relieved the IR 274.
On June 9, 1940, in order to continue the advance, the Division organized the following battle groups:
Aufkl. Abt. Stumpf with the Pz Jäg Abt, Radf. Schw and a Platoon of engineers. Motorized, it should advance by Lassigny on Chevincourt.
Right: Gruppe Mayr with the IR 276, II. and III. / AR 194, one Engineers' Coy by Candor – La Potière – Lassigny towards Villers-sur-Coudun.
Left: Gruppe Thomas with the IR 267, I. and IV. / AR 194, one Engineers' Coy attack by Lagny – Susoy – Ribécourt towards Giraumont.
The IR 274 and one Engineers' Coy continue behind Gruppe Thomas.
The I. / Flak Rgt 8 was assigned to the Division.
