  1. Usually it is just a continuation of his service such as this example shown here but unfortunately it looks like when NARA originally copied the files they didn't bother (or forgot) to copy the reverse of Zwick's one.
  2. That is all there is on his card file. If his personnel file exists in NARA then it will probably be in A3356 Roll 940.7, 985 or 999 with the last two being supplementary files.
  3. The only 'Zwick' listed in the 1936 Stellenbesetzung is a Haputmann (E) with 15./Inf.Rgt 69 but the seniority date is different being 01.10.1934 so it might not be him. Your best hope for his WW-1 details is to see if his file is held in NARA, in the A3356 series. This is his German card file:
  4.

  5. Have you managed to look in the KG-26 history? I don't have it I'm afraid but maybe he is shown in there although as he was only with KG-26 for around a year it might be a long shot. He certainly seems to of been transferred a lot! For anyone else who might know where to look this is his listing in the Officer Career Summaries: WERNER, Otto-Friedrich. (DOB: 13.06.12). (i.G.). 01.04.30 pre-military flight training with DVS (to 31.03.31). 01.04.31 Kriegsmarine (officer from 1934). 01.05.35 trf from the Kriegsmarine to the Luftwaffe and assigned to Fliegerschule 2 (Warnemünde) for Beobachter (observer) training. 01.10.35 promo to Oblt. 01.12.35 trf to Fliegerstaffel (F) (See) at List/Sylt as a Beobachter (observer/navigator). 01.10.36 trf to Kü.Fl.St. 2./Kü.Fl.Gr. 206 at Norderney. 01.07.37 trf to 2.(F)/Kü.Fl.Gr. 106 Hörnum. 01.10.37 trf to Fliegerschule (See) Bug auf Rügen as a gunnery instructor. 15.11.38 at Fliegerwaffenschule (See) Bug auf Rügen. 05.01.39 ordered temporary duty to Höh.

  6. That doesn't resemble his wartime signature. See here... Tippelskirch
  7. Just out of curiosity, who was the second one named as (supposing Fisher was the other)?
  8. Vice-Admiral Frederic W. Fisher was Admiral Superintendent of Malta Dockyard from 16th January 1907 to 26th February 1910 so would most probably be one of those mentioned although he held the rank of Rear Admiral until 1909.
  9. I've finally found one - currently listed for sale (475 Euros) is the Soldbuch of Generalleutnant Richard Freiherr von Süßkind who commanded 2. Garde-Reserve-Division at the Battle of the Marne.

  14. Can anyone identify this signature dated for February 1945 please? It is for an Oberst who holds the title of Kommandant des Tiergartensblocks which came under OKH Waffenamt.
  15. Thanks for another great addition to the Signature Database. Always good to see your contributions.

      Kevin - the signature database, along with citation databases are for me amongst the highlights on this forum. Until recently I thought, the whole forum had possibly passed its sell by date - so little activity, I didn't bother posting any more, however recently, it seems to have got its second wind, I intend to be adding to the index. Regards

      I think a lot of forums have down periods and some have stronger sections than others, but thanks to yourself and others the signature database is a real credit. Aside from some of the pinned threads your Sachsen-Coburg signature is currently the most viewed thread in the database, some 120 views more than the second most viewed signature.

      Keep up the great work.

       Best Regards
