Grenadier-Regiment 3, Epitaph for the Fallen


Recommended Posts

Officer losses:

Originally a newspaper cutting from an early post-WW1 newspaper, discovered in an old book. This is an epitaph to all officers of Ostpreußisches Grenadier-Regiment No. 3, who fell in the 1914-1918 war. The regiment was based in Königsberg i./Pr., present day Russia.


The document is undersigned

in the Name of the Officer Corps of the former

Grenadier-Regiment König Friedrich Wilhelm I. (Ostprpeuß.) No.3

van den Bergh

- Oberst und Regimentskommandeur -


The losses listed are officers only. Apart from this, over 5.490 ncos and other ranks fell.

Exact date of newspaper cutting cannot be assessed, probably early to mid 1920s.


Two photos, due to length.
