            19_ "Our battalion during the crossing of the Chemin des Dames On the left, the 'Köhlenase', the wounded officer is Lieutenant Hofmann of the 5th company". This shot seems to correspond to the attack of May 27, 1918. The 133rd Division will invest that evening, the village of Vailly-sur-Aisne.

              20_ "July 9, 1918, on the grounds of the 'Schützenfest' in Brenelle, on the right with the top hat and monocle, the master of ceremonies, Kühnrich". In July, the unit is confined in the villages of Chassemy and Brenelle, where it organizes a traditional German festival, as part of the rest granted to the soldiers. The unit of the officer Heinrich does not seem concerned by the fighting raging south of the Aisne.
              The album does not contain any photographs beyond this date, the unit was reportedly engaged in the last major German offensive on July 15, 1918. Officer Heinrich would have survived as testified by the album that he set up when he returned to Germany, with his photographs and correspondence.
