U.S. REMOUNT STATION AT KRIPP, GERMANY 1919


Corporal Alfred H. "Smokey" Phillips at Sinzig, Germany 1919 part of the Army of Occupation in Germany. Picture source: Robert A. Phillips

About 35 kilometers from Coblenz to a place called Kripp. There were four outfits there; the 301, 303, 305 and 306 remount squadrons. We commenced to receive horses from all over the occupied territory. At one time we had more than 2,000 head of horses and mules. When outfits started going home they turned their horses over to us. We were to dispose of them. We sold them to anyone who would buy them. We sold some to the British, French, Polish, and Belgians. We also sold a lot to individuals. Many of them went for food. A good deal of horsemeat is eaten in Europe. I ate it, but it is more red and coarser than beef, maybe a little sweeter.

CHARLES MICHAEL BRUNNTRAEGER , KRIPP, GERMANY, A.E.F.

February 8, 2012

Greg
I contacted you earlier regarding my grandfather who served in the Veterinary Corps of the AEF. I have discovered that he was stationed in Coblenz during the occupation. According to your history of the occupation, there was a remount station at Kripps. Enclosed is a photo titled "Kripp". I don't have the original photo; it is with cousins in New York. The above photo is my grandfather, Charles Michael Brunntraeger, on horseback. In the Kripps photo, he is the sixth from the left ion the back row. In the second photo he is fifth from the left, standing with his legs crossed. Other than Kripps, I have no idea of locations. Perhaps the background of the horseback photo is recognizable.

CONTACT WITH HORST KREBS, KRIPP, GERMANY

Hello Greg,
My name is Horst Krebs. I was born 1950 in Kripp/Germany and I am still living here. During my research about WW1 I found information about Kripp on your website.

Thanks for contacting me about Kripp. Our small village Kripp (now we have around 3000 inhabitants) has a small Heritage Museum, where we collect all information about Kripp from History.

The military section contains: 2 events. WW1 and WW2. About WW1 we are glad about your information, as the history for WW1 in our village is very rare. If you have or find anything about Kripp we would be happy to have it.
