Elaine,

His regiment was not heavily involved in the fighting during the war.

From 15.08.1870- 28.09.1870 it participated in the siege of Straßburg.

On 24.08.1870 the second battalion (to which his 7th company belonged) fought a small skirmish during the siege.

From 19.12.1870-26.12.1870 it took part in the encirclement of Langres.

It fought "an der Lisaine" from 15.01.1871-17.01.1871.

A small battle at St. Ferjeux on 20.01.1871 and again at Aulechaux on 20.01.1871.
