  1. Hi Gents, I got a bundle photos containing this one. I cant recognize the Spanish general Every help appreciated. Regards Andreas
  2. I am sure some will of seen this announced on other forums but for those that don't know Ancestry in Germany have now added 2.4 million cards for those soldiers killed between 1939-1948 and although I am led to believe that those cards relating to late 1944 don't exist there may well be some for that period and 1945. So far the latest date I have been able to find a card file for is July 1944 but I have been told that there are some for later in 1944 and 1945. So far I have found card files for members in all 3 branches of the Wehrmacht, Waffen-SS (including Concentration Camp guards) and Polizei. Some have just one side of a card while others might have 2 or 3 double sided cards of information. If you have a Wehrpass or Soldbuch to a man killed in action then the chances are that the card files will tell you little new except that in a lot of examples the card files tell you how he died (gun shot to lungs, head injury etc) and where he was originally buried. But if all you have is a memorial card or a grave photo then you will be able to gain a lot of information such as his basic training unit, his last unit, dogtag details and so on. See below for a couple of examples. It would seem that people are having an approx 75-80% success rate in finding who they are looking for. This is already shaping up to be an incredible resource and I have already been told by one German collector that he has been able to find his Grandfather's card and despite the Red Cross, Volksbund & WASt not telling him about any burial details in the past there on the back of the card was his original grave details showing that he had received a proper burial from his comrades, something that has brought peace of mind to his remaining son & daughter 76 years later. But as with all things Ancestry, after your trial period ends you will need to subscribe to the site to obtain access.
  3. Good day, I am happy to report that I have acquired all of the awards for Major Max Reck, as noted in his records and Soldbuch. I received a huge packet of 75 pages of testimony pertaining to his participation in the Warsaw Uprising of 1944, which is being translated by a friend. I am awaiting a few other packets from various Bundesarkiv sources (Berlin namely), as well as a request sent to the Polish government. Also, I have his service record. I am now hoping that details of his service before and after Warsaw are present, as well as any possible award recommendation narratives. There are a few shoulder boards I need for a complete representation of his units as he wore the ranks. I am much closer to the end than the beginning. I am still very excited about this project and am happy the the $$ part is completed. Paul
  4. Hi Gents, I´m trying to find out, which medals he got. What I know is his DKiG awarded on 24.12.1942, but which other medals did he get, especially Italian? Kind regards Andreas
  5. Hello everyone, it's been a while since last time. I need this time help with translating pages 34-35. I have different bids on what the code 34 means everything from nasal symptoms of self-mutilation. Does anyone know what training he received? Greetings Edwina
  6. Gentlemen, Heinz Otto of Schwere Panzer-Abteilung 506 was awarded the German Cross in Gold on June 1,1944 and the Army Honor Roll Clasp January 7,1945. Do you have anymore information about him during WWII and his post war fate? I think his last wartime rank was Hauptmann. Sincerely, Edward L. Hsiao
  7. Gentlemen, These German soldiers had been awarded both the German Cross in Gold and the Close Combat Clasp in Gold from 1942 to early 1945. There were Helmut Hellinger,Franz Ingenbrand,Josef Obermeier,Karl Peter Vehlow,Gustav Vormdohre,and Fritz Willno to name and few. My question was what was the fate of them and if they were recommended for the Knight's Cross before WWII ended for them? Or claimed to be awarded the KC? I remember that Josef Obermeier was recommended for the Knight's Cross at least two times. There was no final outcome of there recommendations. I know there were others who were holders of the German Cross in Gold and the Close Combat Clasp in Gold that claimed to be holders of the Knight's Cross but without confirmination. SS-Hauptsturmfuhrer Emil Huber of "Das Reich" Division,was one example. He was the holder of both the German Cross in Gold and the Close Combat in Gold. He truthly claimed that he was also a Knight's Cross holder but without firm proof. I couldn't help being a Knight's Cross fan. Sincerely, Edward L. Hsiao
  8. I was fortunate to find this little jewel lately at an auction ,probably as no one could decipher the German Suterlin it was written in ( I nearly missed it as I also struggled)! . It is the complete Ahnenpass belonging to Major Martin Drewes ,the highly decorated ,and famous WW2 German Night Fighter Pilot Ace, and Knights Cross with Oakleaves bearer ,and Group Commander of III./NJG 1.Drewes was only one of a handfull of pilots that saw action in Iraq (under Iraqi colors) in WW2 against the RAF (most collectors do not know about this theatre of action). The Ahnenpass (Ancestral Passport)is a document tracing the Aryan Lineage of a German Citizen 4 generations back .This was a vital document to have if one hoped to make a career in the Third Reich. It came with three original private snapshot photos of Drewes ( which I suspect have never been published) ,which were lying loosely between the pages, which really was a lovely bonus. Translated herunder AHNENPASS of Name:. Martin Drewes Place: Lobmachtersen Adress: Über Wolfenbüttel Telephone: Barúm 272
  9. Hello gentlemen What is the family name of this Graf (count) ? Thanks, Rossano
  10. If you own Christoph's Wehrpass or Soldbuch you might like to contact me - I have 6 original documents relating to his death (KIA, Russia, August 1941).
  11. Hi gents, I´m looking for informations about 4. / Btl. Arzberger - Rgt. Reck around September / October 1944. Was this unit involved in the Warsaw uprising? Every help appreciated. Kind regards Andreas
  12. Guys, I think this was €25 well spent, I have not had a good look through yet but last time there was a few interesting bits and bobs. I am not sure what the Arbeitsgesets are about and the business stats things look fairly uninteresting? They all originally belonged to the Reichsbahn Direktion Hannover library.
  13. It has been a fair while since I showed a grouping from my collection so here is one of the most recent. It consists of the Wehrpass, Citations and a few extras for a pilot in a night ground attack unit but not just any pilot. This pilot going by the name of Ludwig Bellof won the Knights Cross, German Cross in Gold & Ehrenpokal with 1./Nachtschlachtgruppe 3, a unit which flew 'nuisance' raids using such obsolete aircraft as the Ar-66 and Go-145 in a similar fashion to the well known Soviet Po-2 'Sewing Machine' of earlier war years on the Eastern Front. The only citations missing are the prelim RK & Kurland Cuffband examples but it is impossible to know if they were ever issued in the first place or have become lost/seperated over time. Ludwig Bellof was originally a member of the Heer before WW-2 which included a spell with Pz.Abwehr-Abteilung 36 but before the war he transferred over to the Luftwaffe and commenced his flying training. This was the time when the fuel & war situation was such that the Germans could afford to give pilots a full and thorough training and so it was that Bellof would attend numerous training schools and courses from the beginning of 1939 to the end of 1942, a full 3 years and more including time at Jagdgruppe Drontheim and Aufkl.Fl.Schule Brieg. Completing his training in November 1942 Bellof was assigned to 2./Störkampfgruppe Luftflotte 1. This unit was set up in October 1942 in the area of Leningrad to copy the Soviet tactics of sending small, slow aircraft over enemy lines at night to conduct nuisance raids keeping the enemy soldiers on edge and to deprive them of sleep. A lot of the time the pilots of such units would fly up to 4 or 5 sorties in one night with probably the best sortie ratio being achieved in March 1943 when the Gruppe flew 3,052 sorties in 22 nights - an average of 138 sorties per night for the Gruppe!! In October 1943 Störkampfgruppe Luftflotte 1 was renamed Nachtschlachtgruppe 3 with 2./Störkampfgruppe Luftflotte 1 becoming 1./Nachtschlachtgruppe 3. By this time Bellof had already been awarded both grades of the EK and up to the Bomber Clasp in Gold, and a few days after the renaming to 1./Nachtschlachtgruppe 3 he was awarded the Ehrenpokal.
  14. Killed in Action 6 March 1942 near Kolmowo, Russia.......former party member and NSKK, born 2 December 1899, has anyone an idea who he served with..thanks, Paul
  15. Interesting document, can anyone help as to what its is for and who signed it, many thanks, Paul
  16. On the off chance....would anyone have a note of this guy....as to service (Heer, Luftwaffe etc) officer? any pointers......? cheers, Paul
  17. A quick question for anyone that might know of the answer. If I am seeking a copy of a personnel file (or whatever is available along those lines) for a Generalmajor would NARA hold a copy? Specifically Georg Seegers (OKH P2, IR 432, IR 431 & Fallschirm-Pz.Gren.Div 'HG' 2 as well as WW-1 service in IR 77)
  18. Many moons ago in a long buried thread about WW1 Hohenzollern House Order recipient Wehrmacht ribbon bars, this wonder bar was initially attributed by me to a retread OKH Oberst named von Karmainsky. We've come a long way baby since then: additional rolls, and--the key to our Imperial mysteries... Dave Danner's tireless dedication to mining the U.S. National Archives captured Wehrmacht perosnnel files. Meet... Wilhelm Böhm
