7.(westpr.) Infanterieregiment 155

Post by Svennie » 21 Feb 2004 15:19

Hello all,

I am looking for a difficult piece of info: the commanding officers and some company officers of this regiment for the period 1899-1908. The future SS-Oberstgruf. Paul Hausser served in this unit.

More specifically:
- commanding officer(s) 1899-1908
- company chef 1899-1903 for 6., 7. and 1.Kompanie
- battalion cdr 1903-1906 for II.Btl

Apart from the names, I would be grateful for any background info on these men. Also, if someone could provide a scan from the relevant pages of the Dienstaltersliste, that would be perfect. Please provide me with your sources if it is not too much trouble.

Many thanks in advance!
