    It is possible, but only by DV please take a contact with Deutsche Volksbund to give them remains of the soldiers. Volksbund Deutsche Kriegsgräberfürsorge e.V. - Arbeit für den Frieden

    Here lies our leader ,in the dust of his greatness.
    Who leaves him now , be damned forever.
    We who are old now shall not leave this Battle,
    But lie at his feet , in the dust with our leader

    Hi,
    501 - personal identification number
    Some info about regiment:

    Grenz-Infanterie-Regiment 122
    Grenz-Infanterie-Regiment Meseritz
    Infanterie-Regiment 122

    Das Grenz-Infanterie-Regiment 122 wurde am 12. Oktober 1937 in Meseritz mit einem Stab und einem Bataillon mit sechs Kompanien aufgestellt und der 50. Infanterie-Division unterstellt. Bei der Mobilmachung wurde das Regiment auf 18 Kompanien verstärkt und geteilt. 9 Kompanien kamen zum Infanterie-Regiment 122, 9 Kompanien zum Grenz-Infanterie-Regiment Meseritz. Am 10. November 1939 wurden die beiden Regimenter wieder vereinigt und führten nun einheitlich die Bezeichnung Infanterie-Regiment 122. Das Regiment wurde dabei durch drei MG-, eine IG- und eine Panzerabwehr-Kompanie auf die volle Stärke gebracht. Am 15. Oktober 1942 wurde das Regiment in Grenadier-Regiment 122 umbenannt.
