Hello Richard.

Ref.# 73,

signature of Oberst Stigell.

Bernhard H. Holst

Bernhard thank you very much indeed for your help!

Do you have any additional information on Stigell at all?

I checked Doug Stankey and Larry de Zang's Luftwaffe Officer Career Summaries and only found the following:

STIGELL, Josef. 01.06.41 promo to Oberst.

Regards Richard.

No information on him but I have seen his signature on prelim RK citations before.

Thanks Kevin, Oberst Josef Stigell it is then!  

To be honest I am very suprised that his signature was identifiable, and thought he would just be another of the myriad of Luftwaffe officers employed with the Oberkommander der Luftwaffe.

Hopefully, I might be able to find out the odd snippet of info on Stigell in the future.

Regards Richard.

From a Luftwaffe Soldbuch, the signature of a Hauptmann und Staffelkapitan 4./Ergänzungs Nahaufklärungsgruppe ‘Bromberg’.  

The original holder of the Soldbuch served in 4./Ergänzungs Nahaufklärungsgruppe ‘Bromberg’ from 08-06-1944 - 22-09-1944.

Regards Richard.

Any ideas on this signature on the opening page of a Wehrpass, and signed by a Hauptmann und Kompanie Chef 6./Inf. Regt. 16, dated 30-September-1936?

Signed as Oberleutnant und Adjutant I./Kampfgeschwader 2 from the first half of 1942.  

I 'think' I read Koepping? although that name does not reach a match with anything I can find as yet.

Any ideas on the signature?

Regards Richard.

You'll need to post that one in the Unidentified Heer Signatures thread.

For 1929 I have found a Hauptmann Schaumberg in command of 4.Kompanie (no idea if he was a 'von' or not as the signature suggest that signer is.)

Thanks for your help as always with these, it is much appreciated.

Very pleased with identifying Hans Rössing, particularly as a holder of the Ehrenpokal, and you right in that I should of posted the Hauptmann from 6./Inf. Regt 16 in the Heer thread! (which I shall do!)

Regards Richard.

This one has had myself and many others puzzled completely.

Major u. Stelv. Kommodore Kampfgeschwader 40 on 29-07-1942.

In my opinion is that this was obviously a temporary assignment in between the below:

  • Oberst Karl Mehnert, 1.42 - 1942
  • Oberst Martin Vetter, 1942 - 1.9.43

Any ideas anyone?

Regards Richard.

Major und Kommandant Fliegerhorstkommandanteur 15/VII, dated 28-06-1941.

http://www.ww2.dk/ground/flibo/fk/fk15-7.html lists;

Hptm Otto Adrario, 4.4.41 - 10.42

However, the signatory is a Major, and I am not reading Adrario in the signature (unless I am missing something)

Any ideas?

Regards Richard.

Hi Richard,

"Major und Kommandant Fliegerhorstkommandantur 15/VII"

I think, that it could be Adrario; with much good will I can read Adrario, but really in a very individual handwriting.

In different sources I can find him in that time as Hauptmann and as Major, for example:

http://www.wiki.luftwaffedata.co.uk/wiki/index.php?title=Fliegerhorstkommandantur_E_15/VII

Later you can find him as Hauptmann or as Oberstleutnant at the same time; and who is lying?

In another list he is listed as Hauptmann between an Oberst and two Oberstleutnants, in my opinion that can not be correct:

I have to agree. I think it is indeed Adrario.

Uwe & Kevin

Then I am happy to take your respective words for it, and consider the signature as Adrario after all.

Thank you both as always for your help.

Regards Richard.

Hi Richard,

Major Lambert von Konschegg

Uwe

Uwe

That is excellent! thank you very much indeed!

I had forgotten about this Urlaubschein and only noticed the signature recently, so to discover he was awarded the RK and DKiG with KG 40 is a real bonus for sure.

Regards Richard.

I am hoping that someone can help in the identification of the attached signatures from a Soldbuch of a Bordfunker, who flew with Kampfgeschwader 53 "Legion Condor".

First off are these 2 signatures of an Oberleutnant und Staffelfuhrer of 3./KG 53 dated 01-July-1940.

All help will be gratefully received.

Regards Richard.

I made a mistake on this one.

Dated 17-January-1940, the signatory is a Hauptmann und Staffelfuhrer 3./KG 53.
