Thanks a lot, Jan!

So, Oberleutnant v. Pfeffer just led the bataillon for that attack, but he was not the commander

Hauptmann Görtz was wounded at the start of the attack and the battalion (II) was then led by Leutnant der Reserve Leppelmann. Hauptmann Schultz was also wounded during the attack by mainly machine gun fire as were plenty of other officers (some killed), Oberleutnant von Pfeffer took over the battalion (I) during the morning.

 

The trenches north of Baumhof (or Bauerhof as it is called in the regimental history) were captured at 8.30 pm by III/RIR 13 under Hauptmann Friesland.
