    Oberleutnant Hans Dornbusch

    Recommended Posts


    Does anyone have any info on a 25th Artillery Regiment officer by the name of Hans Dornbusch. I have his waffenrock, tailored and named to him in 1939. This Regiment had an interesting history on all fronts but my research material for Heer is limited.

    There was no regular officer named Dornbusch in the army as of 1.1.39, so if the label has Oberleutnant rank in 1939, he must have been a Reservist.

    Out of luck, there. The only wartime list is the May 1944 Majors up.

    Many thanks, Rick.

    I should have mentioned the tunic is for an Oberleutnant (though pips could have been added later) and it is for a Reservist!

    Perhaps he never made it to higher rank and/or survived to that late in the war. This unit took heavy casualties in Russia.
