The Beginnings of II./Artillerie Regiment 84
On Feberuary 1, 1940, the 4./Artillerie Regiment 84 is formed from parts of the I./A.R. 84 and II./Art. Ers. Abt. 50, following Order 1069/40 issued January 24, 1940. The units home town was the city of Zeitz in Saxony-Anhalt.
My grandfather is posted to the new unit as part of the “founding nucleus” from his current unit, II./Art. Ers. Abt. 50 (see his entry January 11, 1940).
