While working my way through the XB files of the 105e Ligne and found an interesting (perhaps) mistake by Colonel De Blanmont.
Below is the report detailing officers and soldiers who distinguished themselves on the battlefield. The report is dated 26 mars 1809 in camp at Landsouth. On the far left of the paper can be seen that the Emperor approved requests in the Decree of 30 April and executed on 5 May 1809. The report was written 16 days after the beginning of hostilities and after the regiment marched many miles and fought in at least two major battles. After looking at the report, the first thought that came to my mind was that possibly exhaustion had overcome the Colonel, and he easily mixed up the months and mispled Landshut. There is no doubt the month should be April because there is proof that Sergent Pierre Paul Menessier, the first sous-officier proposed for the Legion of Honour, was awarded the cross on 30 April 1809.
Anyways, just something fun to share, and for those who are more knowledgeable about the countryside of Bavaria, is there a town called Landsouth? or is it most likely Landshut?
