Thanks for this reply. You are bringing here a very interesting aspect of the fortoccupation that was completely unknown to me. (do you have more info, or references to be consulted?). I am looking for a map of the Antwerp Area with the boundaries of the Generalgouvernement, Abschnitte, especially Ostabschnitt. etc...
Can I understand that in Stuttgart war diaries of Landsturmunits can be found, or is it only the war diary of Armierungs-Bataillon 59, 1. Kompagnie?
Do you have the adress or name of the archive-holder? I cannot read Kurrent or Süterling, but I have some comparison sheets.
In the mean time I can tell you that I have made some small progresses on the matter. My main question was to find out which units occupied Fort 2 in Wommelgem (Antwerp) during WW1, as I explained in my initial question.
Finally I could get hold on a document undersigned by a German Fortkommandant of Fort 2, on 16/2/1915, but the document did not bear any unit-identification. Thanks to the Feldgrau Forum (users KIR and Ruhrpottpreusse), I found out that the man in question was the named JOSEPH SCHULLER, Feldwebelleutnant at the Landsturm Infanteriebataillon AMBERG. In the mean time I have also the content of his Stammbuch. The fact that Mr Schuller had only the rank of Feldwebelleutnant gave me the indication that the fort could only be occupied by a minor group of people, a platoon at the maximum.
The interesting thing was also that at the same period Wommelgem was subject to the Ortskommandantur Wijnegem, where also the Ortskommandeur was an officer of the Landsturm Infanterie Bataillon AMBERG.
This gives an indication that tprobably there was a correlation between the regiment or bataillon, holding the Ortskommandantur and the fortoccupation in its territory.
This came on top of an other document describing an incident in october 26, 1917 where a soldier from the Landsturm Infanterie Bataillon BRANDENBURG was assaulted by 2 Belgian civilians at 30 meter from the entrance of Fort 2, while on patrol. Was he based in Fort 2?? But again: the Orstkommandantur was in that period in Bouchout, and it was occupied by......Landsturm Infanterie Bataillon BRANDENBURG. So again, half of a confirmation of the theory.
This is in fact the reason why I am trying to get as much information as possible about the bataillons I mentioned in my initial question.
One answer arouses a lot of new questions, but thanks on beforehand,
