Pictures and text by Mark R. Hatlie
These pictures were taken on 12 February, 2006 in Darmstadt. I did not note the address, but I think this was at the northwest corner of the Prinz-Emil-Garten.
|The memorial appears to have been severly damaged (see below) and put back together. It bears the coat of arms of Hessia.|
|The front reads, "To the Hessian Artillery and its Dead / The Grand Duchy Artillery Corps / 1st Grand Duchy Hessian Field Artillery Regiment Nr. 25 / 1460-1790-1919 / 2. Grand Duchy Field Artillery Regiment Nr. 61 / 1899-1919 / Artillery Regiment Nr. 33 / 1936-1945"|
|The back lists sub-units and notes that the monument was built in 1927, destroyed in 1947, and rebuilt on the 28th of June, 1953.|
|The sides list more sub-units.|
