The 1st and 2nd Sailors ("Matrosen"), Regiments along with naval artillery batteries and naval air squadrons were stationed in Flanders on the far edge of the Western Front and along the Belgian coast from 1914-18. The regiments were quickly expanded to divisional strength and along with the Naval Infantry Division (formed from the Seebataillone), became the Flanders Marine Corps ("Marinekorps Flandern"). In addition to the personnel in Flanders other sailors served in a Marine Pioneer Company on the Somme Front in 1916.
