  1. Heeres-Flakartillerie-Abt Grossdeutschland - signed by Eugen Wößner
  2. A variant to a member of Fla.Btl 613 and bearing the signature of Friedrich Herrlein.
  3. The book Red Storm Over The Balkans by David Glantz covers the fighting in Romania during the spring of 1944.

  6. According to WW-2 Awards, his Wehrpass does exist in a collection somewhere. That would provide pointers to some of the answers. And I have just found out that his Wehrpass & Soldbuch was sold on the WAF a few years ago and resides in France, but who that owner is I have not got a clue.
  7. For anyone interested, next April the Tank Museum at Bovington in the UK will be opening a new exhibition centered around the Tiger tank family with the loan of the Elefant from the US Army Ordnance Training and Heritage Center collection, and also possibly a Sturmtiger, to be displayed alongside the two King Tigers, Jagdtiger and Tiger. Tiger Exhibition
  8. No idea. As far as I'm aware the only two in existence are in Münster and Kubinka.
  9. From this weekend (which is Tankfest) they are introducing a CGI viewer sort of thing from World of Tanks whereby, I think, you put on a pair of 3D Virtual Reality goggles and you can see a rendered life size version of the Sturmtiger. They had the console in place playing an advert for it but it wasn't up and running. You can see the set-up on the right of the second photo.
  10. Yesterday I had a day out and visited the Bovington Tank Museum and here are some photos of the Tiger Exhibition. Unfortunately they haven't managed to get a Sturmtiger but they do have a Sturmtiger gun barrel. The Porsche variant of the Königstiger and the Jagdtiger... ...and the shell that the Jagdtiger fired: The Henschel variant of the Königstiger and the Elefant which is on loan for 2 years from the US. Lastly, the well known Tiger '131' and the Sturmtiger's gun barrel.
  11. Nice photo - do you think it is a relative of the previous owner?
  12. Deutsches-Reichs-Sportsabzeichen in Silber for a future Tech.Inspektor.
  13. There are many variants of citations for Sports Awards from the more formal German Horseman's & SA Sports Badge to the less formal unit-level sports day certificates. Here is an example of the latter for a member of 52 ID and signed by Lothar Rendulic and also the soldiers booklet/citation for the Deutsches-Reichs-Sportsabzeichen in Bronze...

  19. Thanks for the additional snippet. It sounds like you were glad you didn't go through their training regime, and who can blame you.

  23. 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.
  24. 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.
  25. 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:
