Antwerp, October 1²914

The Marine Division leaves Antwerp.
Like many other things it lacked horses and horse transport. Extra numbers were furnished by captured Belgian army horses and transport

Interesting to see the metamorphis of the Marinekorps from its origins as a reserve type formation in 1914,to a first class infantry formation by 1916.

May I echo Fallschirmjäger here in thanking CNOCK and Peter for a great thread so far.

On the issue of when the German marines were formed, yes 1675 was the first formation of any German naval troops but the "modern" Prussian Seebatallione were formed in 1853.
