  1. He's just a Luftwaffe NCO so chances of identifying him are extremely thin.
  2. Contributed by AlecH Image: Citation - Ehrenblatt "Soldaten der 81 Infanty Division" - July 1940
  3. My German is nowhere near strong enough to translate it but I would say that you might need to provide much clearer (and larger) images to help someone work out what it says.
  4. Generalleutnant Kurt-Jürgen Freiherr von Lützow Born: 07 Aug 1892 Died: 20 Jul 1961 Kdr Infanterie-Regiment 89 Kdr 12.Infanterie-Division Kdr XXXV.Armeekorps RK: 15 Aug 1940 EL: 21 Oct 1941
  5. The soldier who wore that Waffenrock wasn't an officer, he was a Kanonier.
  6. NARA in the US and BA-MA in Germany. Possibly even the Russian archives who are starting to publish stuff online.
  7. There is information on Art.Rgt 64 at the Lexikon website whose link has been provided on some of the other forums where you have posted this request. I would say that it would be difficult to find any in depth details but you could always trawl through the archives and see if there is any mention of them in the War Diaries of the units it served under. Major Walter Kuhn commanded II/Art.Rgt 64 until 31st Oct 1935. It is a common name so tracking any details down for the actual soldier without any further details might prove very difficult.
  8. Is that Otto von Oelhafen's signature? You are right in saying these relatively cheap examples can hold great surprises. I remember seeing one quite a few years ago signed by Oakleaves winner and Normandy related General Friedrich Dollmann and regretted not buying it as it was really cheap. Get it in to the Signature Database
  9. Roland Freisler Born: 30 Oct 1893 Died: 03 Feb 1945 - killed during an air raid on Berlin by the USAAF Director of the Prussian Ministry of Justice Secretary of State Prussian Ministry of Justice Secretary of State Reich Ministry of Justice Attended Wannsee Conference President of the People's Court (Volksgerichtshof)
  10. No idea I'm afraid. This signature is on a citation to an official in Vienna.
  11. Hanns Blaschke Born: 01 Apr 1896 Died: 25 Oct 1971 Beigeordneter und Ratsherr Wien Bürgermeister Wien Held the rank of SS-Brigadeführer. Convicted of treason in 1948 he was sentenced to 6 years imprisonment.
  12. Baldur Benedikt von Schirach Born: 09 May 1907 Died: 08 Aug 1974 Reichsjugendführer & Gauleiter Nationalsozialistischer Deutscher Studentenbund 4./Inf.Rgt Grossdeutschland Gauleiter Wien Sentenced to 20 years imprisonment at the Nuremburg Trials. Released 1966.
  13. Hauptmann Herbert Maedge Erg.Gruppe (S) 1 Staffelkapitän 3.(Go)/Schleppgruppe 2 Kdr IV/Fallschirm.Ers.u.Ausb.Rgt 1
  14. Fingers crossed in that case. I look forward to hearing the outcome.
  15. Not knowing Canadian areas etc I'm assuming Red Deer isn't far from you in which case that is another pointer that it belongs to you otherwise what would the odds be that a SB that you bought and which got lost in the mail has rocked up just down the road instead of somewhere like Toronto or Vancouver?

  19. Thanks for the service history of your uncle on the other thread. It looks like he was serving with 2.Minensuchflottille when the above photo was taken. The two paravanes seen in the photo would add weight to this.
  20. Is there any chance you can scan in the part of the photo indicated below at a higher resolution? It might be possible to narrow down the ship if we can read the two cap tallies. It looks like it ends with '...flottille'. There are no awards being worn so possibly pre-WW2.
  21. Nice to see the photos and the citation together. Do you have anything else relating to that sailor (Schlummer)? If not here are some more details: Name: Willi Schlummer Date of Birth: 25th Oct 1913 in Obergrüne Died: 12th Oct 1945 in Indonesia Crew of 1937b Highest rank: Oberleutnant zur See (1st Jan 1943) Also served on: MS Bogota, Schiff 10 'Thor' The above information and some photos of him and his grave are here: Schlummer, Willi Update: Just seen your photo of your uncle's grave in Indonesia on another thread so you are obviously aware of his details.
