The End of the Imperial Volunteer Automobile-Corps

It was just a small notice in an automobile magazine who reported about the end of this great organization. It was one of the rules of the treaty of Versailles that military organizations must be resolved after the hostilities had ended.

So the last meeting of the German Imperial Volunteer Automobile-Corps happened at October 11th, 1919 in Berlin. A few speeches from high ranking former officers, a few telegrams to Prince Heinrich and Waldemar, and a remarkable part of the German history was over.

After that the Chief of Staff, privy councellor Büxenstein, remembered the fallen of the Corps with a minute of silence.

That was the end of the Corps.
