Unidentified WW2 Heer / Waffen SS / Polizei Signatures


Recommended Posts

A friend has asked me to try and identify this signature for him and I am currently stuck on it, I can not even identify the first letter. Is it an A, F or something else?

It is signed on behalf of GdA Wiktorin and there is a chance it could be a Luftwaffe Generalleutnant and I am basing that solely on not being able to find a Heer name in my books and files that might fit. So could be Heer but could be Luftwaffe.

Hi everyone !

I'm asking once more for your kind help. Could anyone identify the signature of this Hauptmann from 1. Kompanie Infanterie-Regiment 109 from 35. Infanterie-Division. He was in command in 1936 until at least 1938.

Thanks in advance,

Satzar.

The 1938 Stellenbesetzung shows a Hauptmann Pfeifer which I would say matches that signature.

Hi

Can anyone assist with this signature.  Its an EKII doc late 1943 to a soldier kia near Kiev.

His VWA Schwarz doc is signed by a staff officer in AR 188 (his unit) but this doc appears to be a generalmajor and the stamp appears to contain SS (though that may be a misread)

Im shrugging with the suetterin script on this one.  First letter could be W?

What does the stamp say? It might be that Inf.Rgt 245 was attached to another division.

 

EDIT: Found it - Dietrich Kraiss. For the date of that citation he was in command of 168.Infanterie-Division.

Thats great, thanks a ton! The Division stamp reads 168 (but it could also be read as 268, 269, 169, 168), so it is defenitely 168, the signature is verified by the signed portrait from internet (enclosed).

Does anyone know who signed this? It has been signed on behalf of rather than by the person who held the position so can not find anything that fits. At the date show Karl Kriebel held the position shown on the citation while Ernst-Eberhard Hell held the command position in VII.Armeekorps - neither signature matches.

    • Now it looks like I may see my exhibition for the first time in 19 months.   This year is the 65th Anniversary of the Suez Crisis, which culminated in Lester B. Pearson's invention of Peacekeeping, as opposed to Military Observers.   So the Museum will record a video of me discussing this.
    • I've never been able to stick to one theme.   One of my latest is women in the military.  For about ten years from 1952 to 1962, the RCAF actively recruited women to "man" the radar lines protecting against a Soviet attack.   During the Second War, women of the Auxiliary Territorial Service were attached to Royal Artillery Anti-Aircraft Batteries, called Mixed Batteries. They did spotting and tracking, plus communications, while the Gunners loaded and fired.  
    • Two years down the line.   My mother-in-law passed away this summer, as did one of her sisters-in-law.   My exhibition opened, and we had a marvellous speakers' night with four Peacekeeping veterans, including a Meritorious Service Medal winner.  But Covid closed it down in March 2020, and while still there it hasn't reopened.
    • Sounds great other than the Orange & Mango squash only because I prefer cran-pomegranate juice.
