The 208th Battalion is special as it contained the Ochakov name and carried it through to the new regiment it was early in precedence by the time of the formation. The battalion was first formed from the '''1st Crimean Garrison Battalion''' in 1811. Just five years later the battalion was renamed as the '''Kherson Internal Garrion Battalion'''. In 1864 after the [[Crimean War]] reforms the battalion was retitled as the Kherson Governorate Battalion. Ten years later it became the Kherson Local Battalion. And just a few months after being renamed the regiment was split to form the 1st and 2nd Kherson Local Battalions. Just a few months later in august of the same year the battalions were merged forming the 53rd Reserve Infantry Personnel Battalion. In 1891 the battalion became the '''Ochakov Reserve Battalion'''. In 1899 the battalion was brought into line with the rest of the army and became the 208th Ochakov Reserve Battalion, and four years after became the 208th Infantry Reserve Ochakov Battalion. In 1905 the battalion was expanded to create the 208th Ochakov Infantry regiment but the next year was reduced to become the 208th Ochakov Reserve Battalion.<ref name=":0" /> Summary: Please note that all contributions to the Military Wiki are considered to be released under the CC-BY-SA Cancel Editing help (opens in new window) Retrieved from "https://military.wikia.org/wiki/190th_Ochakov_Infantry_Regiment"
