Your grandfather died ( regarding of the date of death) in the middle of 10th Isonzo battle ( 12.5.- 5.6.1917), where the Austrian forces in the beginning of the battle were forced to retreat on Karst plateau. Can you translate the name of the Regiment, since it is in slovak language? That could be helpfull.

With the help of Miha from the Walk of Peace Foundation, we found some additional information. We hope they will help you. Babics Johann was a member of the Festungs Artillerie Regiment N.2, 30.5 cm Mörser Batterie Nr.4.
The position of his gun is marked on this map from 10.5.1917.

His grave is in the vilage Sveto (Suta). After the Italian rearrangement of the cemetery in the years after the war, the grave received no.347 and was in the 1st row. Now, however, sigular graves cannot be seen.

Here is some wartime photo of the cemetery in Sveto.
