Abreviations Found in Soldbuchs and Wehrpas


Recommended Posts

Hello Richard.

Here is my guess:

AfK: Ausgabestelle fuer Kraftfahrwesen ( distributionpoint for motoertramsport);

M.K.A.: Marinekuestenartillerie ( naval coastal artillery)

Perhaps in conjunction with the documents at hand this may make sense.

Bernhard H. Holst.

Thanks Berhard. The M.K.A. makes sense and I'll have to figure out whether or not the A.f.K. fits with the documents.

Bernhard, can you tell me what M.E.A. might stand for? I suspect Marine ???????? Artillerie, and can't figure out what the "E." might be.

Thanks

I need some help with a Kriegsmarine Wehrpas entry:

Komp. Gravelines

Marinestammregiment

Beverloo

I do not understand "Gravelines". I know Beverloo, in German occupied Belgium, had an SS Panzer Grenadier training facility and a transit prison camp for alien nationals. This was the Wehrpas holders first posting (Nov. 1941) after completing RAD service. The last entry in his RAD service reads as follows:

"Belehrt uber Spionage, Spionageabwehr,

Landesverrat und Wahrung des

Dienstgeheimnisses am 20.5.41"

RAD service was completed on 27.9.41.

An interesting document which unfortunately has me somewhat bewildered.

Thanks for any assistance.

Gravelines is a place, a small village on the north coast of France, so presumably his Company sized unit was based there.

The bit about Spionage etc is a fairly common entry in Wehrp?sse. It simply indicates that the guy has had training in the dangers posed by enemy espionage attempts, treason etc etc.
