You have not provided enough information. A NAME is not enough. What RANK?

The Fregattenkapit?n (W) of Sperrwesen branch... that funny "3 1/2 rings" rnk was introduced some time in 1944,I think. That suggests-- unless officers already holding this rank CHANGED their insignia-- only two officers promoted in 1945. Is there a DATE or anything on the photo?

Hallo to Norway,

Ahhh, KARL-- no wonder I couldn't find "Otto." :cheers:

I do not have Lohmann & Hildebrand yet so my sources are better for WW "1" than "2."

Interesting background on Biermann--

He took command of the auxiliary minelayer "K?nigin Luise" (no, not the one in Humphrey Bogart's "The African Queen" :cheeky: ) which was sunk two days later at 1:20 PM on 5 August 1914 in the Thames estuary, caught by the British cruiser "Amphion" and a destroyer, which blew the "Queen" to bits. 77 German sailors were killed, and 2 days into his only command of the war, in the first week of the World War, Captain Biermann was a prisoner of war.

He was exchanged through Switzerland in November 1917, and spent the last year of the war in the naval press department.

Hi Rick,

you can get Lohmann and Hildebrand at Band III which is the name list at ZVAB.com
