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 (encl

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?

Gents, I need your much appreciated help with this Generalmajor's signature. The EK2 document is to the 245 Inf.Rgt. but that, with my reference books, leads not to an identification.

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.

    • Lapsang Souchong, when i first tasted this I thought it was like stale cigarette ends...it's an acquired taste for sure.  
    • I like my tea strong enough for my spoon to stand up in. My father got me into it. When my father was at RAF Dum Dum 1943-47 most of his fellow officers drank ice cold drinks to mitigate  the heat, his Sikh batman warned him against it and said that strong hot tea would cool him down, most certainly did. So years later in the UK when everybody else was drinking iced drinks on a baking day the wood family was inbibing copious quantities of hot strong brews of Assam's finest. P
    • Hi ccj, Thanks for your comments. Funny how, for me at least, coffee has become a habit more than a conscience choice. It's the old, "Well if you having one (coffee) pour me as well". When I get together with my son-in-law, a former Brit, it's tea all the way. Thanks again. Regards Brian  
    • I live and grew up in the south (USA) and the drink of choice 7 days a week was cold sweet tea. I was unaware Lipton was British because that’s what most southern use for brewing tea. When I joined the army I learned most people in the north and western parts of the USA drank unsweetened tea and that was perplexing to my young brain. Now days I can’t stand sweet iced tea but it’s still the most common drink in the south, but, you can get unsweetened ice tea in the south. Im familiar with ho
