11th Bavarian Infantry Regiment - 1914

Post by Darren J. Whiteside » 23 Dec 2003 02:53

Hello all,

I am trying to find the German Army/Corps/Division/Brigade that the 11th Bavarian Infantry Regiment belonged to during the opening phase of the war in August 1914. Can anyone give me a clue where this regiment saw action during this month as well? I would appreciate any help that I can get.

regards,

Darren
