Looking for a burial place, Eastern Front, August 1915

Post by Helmut0815 » 09 May 2019 22:02

Dear members,

I'm looking for the burial place of my wife's great-granduncle Wilhelm who served in Reserve-Infanterie-Regiment 225 and got killed in action on August 14th 1915 at the eastern front.

Seine letzte Ruhestätte ist in einem Wäldchen 1 km von Brewuski-Barwadn. (His final resting place is in a copse 1 km from Brewuski-Barwadn)

I can't find any place named like this. As far as I know Res.-Inf.-Rgt. 225 was part of the 49th Reserve-Division which was fighting somewhere at the Bug river near Brest on that date. Any ideas?


best regards



Helmut

There is a 475 page regimental history for this regiment:

Kriegsgeschichte des Reserve-Infanterie-Regiment 225 nach Aufzeichnungen aus dem Felde

You might consult that work to determine the place name in question.
