Is he the same man as what is posted as Kmdr RIR 31?
Yes, he commanded RIR 31 from the mobilisation and then became commander of 5. Garde-Infanterie-Brigade on 25 Sep 1916. He commanded in turn 197. Infanterie-Division from 13 Jul 18, 50. Infanterie-Division frm 7 Nov 1918 and finally 5. Garde-Infanterie-Brigade again from 2 Jan 1919.
A copy of the regimental history is on eBay.de at the moment. I have one already so if you're interested in something let me know. I also happen to be doing a bit of research on this regiment which hopefully will lead somewhere in the near future.
