Title: regiment
Post by: stoffel on 7 August 2009, 22:14:56
During the war a regiment was often formed out of 2 or 3 batallions(abteilung).
Nowadays batallionsized units are named after the old regiments.
For example in the Dutch army all batallions are named after regiments dated back befor ww2.
These units also preserves the old traditon of those regiments.
