Unidentified WW2 Kriegsmarine Signatures

Recommended Posts

Who knows who was the commander of Marine-Artillerie-Abteilung I (http://www.lexikon-der-wehrmacht.de/Gliederungen/MarineArtAbt/MarineArtAbt1.htm) ?

 

I Marine-Artillerie-Abteilung was dissolved in August 1939. Although that stamp says that unit name I think the signature belongs to the Kdr of 1. Ersatz-Marine-Artillerie-Abteilung. The Kdr of I MAA from 1938 to the unit desolving was Dothias Wiarda. The signature looks like it is saying Stornack but I can not find that name in the Lohmann/Hildebrand volume.

Hi,

 

it should be Korvettenkapitän Wilhelm Hornack.

Yep - checking the Lohmann/Hildebrand volume it shows that he was indeed the Kdr of I.Ersatz-MAA from October 1939 to January 1940. Killed on 14th April 1940 during the Norway invasion as Kdr of Marine-Stosstruppabteilung (Kriegschiffe Gruppe 2).

Any ideas on this Kapitan z. See Wehrpass signatory?

As always any help will be much appreciated.

I have two documents with the signature of one of the Kriegsmarine admirals.

Who is he?

Hello, can someone read the writing on this photo?

I think it also includes the signature of the man on the photo. 

That would certainly help to identify him.

Thanks

Just out of curiosity, why do you think it is a U-Boat commander? Kapitän zur See is too high a rank for a U-Boat commander and possibly too high for a U-Boat Flotilla commander, especially wartime.
