The official AHF Imperial German Army & Navy quiz thread

Post by Marcus » 09 Oct 2005 13:28

We've had several different quizes running here in the forum for a while with great success and now that this new section has been opened, I'm starting one here too..

The rules are very simple:
The first one to post the correct answer to a question, posts a new question (must be on the Imperial German Army or Navy) and so on.

Regimental Commander

Post by Glenn2438 » 19 Nov 2005 19:58

Thanks Peter,

which German Regiment was unusual in that at mobilisation in 1914 it was commanded in the field by a Generalleutnant/General der Infanterie who was also the the head of the local ruling ducal house?

Regards
Glenn

Herzog

Post by Glenn2438 » 26 Nov 2005 14:23

Hi Peter,

no, but you are very close. :D Großherzog Wilhelm Ernst was the "Chef" of I.R. 94 but did not personally assume command and lead it into the field as did the Herzog I am looking for!

Regards
Glenn
