Royal Swedish 10th Infantry Regiment in 1935

Post by USAF1986 » 26 Jan 2003 14:34

I’m doing some research on a WWII German general who served on detached duty to the Royal Swedish 10th Infantry Regiment in September-October 1935 (he was later awarded the Royal Swedish Order of Vasa, Commander 2nd Class). Just curious, what was this regiment’s full title as of this date, i.e., did it have an “honor name” or a location formally included in its designation? Thanks for any assistance!

Regards,
Shawn

"regemente" is regiment (suprise!)

John,

Many thanks for the reply! The officer in question was Generalmajor Carl Wahle. He was a Major at the time of his detached duty with the regiment.
