Abstract: Let $ p$ be a prime greater than $ 3$, and let $ N$ be the semi-direct product of a group $ H$ of order $ p$ by a cyclic $ C$ group of order $ p-1$, which acts faithfully on $ H$. Let $ R$ be the localization of $ Z$ at $ p$. We show that the Krull-Schmidt Theorem fails for the category of invertible $ RN$-lattices.
