The 385th Infantry Division, (German: 385. Infanterie-Division) also known as a "Rheingold" Division, was created on 10 January 1942 in Fallingbostel. The division was annihilated in early 1943 while subordinated to the 8th Italian Army. With the order from 17 February 1943 the remains of the 385th Infantry Division together with the remains of the 387th Infantry Division formed the basis for the newly created 387. Infanterie-Division.
