Originally posted in the Imperial section and thanks to Chris B,http://gmic.co.uk/forums/topic/65914-little-help-please-tamara-orden-rangliste-unit/ it appears Baron Walter Von Kutzchenbach served with Sonderverbande "Bergmann" he also married Olga, daughter of Feld marshal Paulus, it appears he was killed in action in 1944 (to be confirmed) I have found him in the book "Forgotten Legion", "Sonderverbande Bergmann", as Dr Oberlander's assistant (Sonderfuher) born in Tiblisi, spoke Caucasian and carried out selection of volunteers (noted as "Baron Walter Von Kutsenbach") Welcome your thoughts
