Regimental Commanders on Ypres-Comines Canal

Post by jerrymurland » Sat Oct 06, 2018 11:25 am

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.

Hello Jerry,
Not sure at all but for the 31.I.D.
I.R. 12 Kommandeur = Oberst Hugo Ribstein
I.R. 17 Kommandeur = Oberst Gerhard Berthold
I.R. 82 Kommandeur = Oberst Friedrich Hoßbach
For the 61 I.D.
I.R 151 Kommandeur = Oberst Walter Melzer
I.R.162 Kommandeur = Generalmajor Kurt Kalmukoff
I.R. 176 Kommandeur = Oberst Robert Sattler
