Louis Rolland and the 161e regiment

In my quest to track down a photo of Louis Rolland and to find out more about his regiment I’ve found this cool little archive of photos of the regiments. It’s a French site, of course, and I am bumbling around trying to figure it out.  While most of the photos don’t have dates, or even identify which company and squad, it’s a fascinating insight into those lost men.   I’d love to find photos of Yves infantry regiment but sadly at this stage have no idea which one he was in – that’s research I have yet to undertake.
