Hi Bernhard,

Thank you so much for your informative reply, answering my "K" question and for the extra information that I look at as an extra bonus.

Best regards

Hello Eric.

I am not a HJ specialist by any means, having only been a member of the DJ from 1942 - 1945. But memory tells me of our envy of the Marine HJ and the Flieger HJ. They could do the fancy things and wore the nicer uniforms!

As to # /page 44 HJ K Uebungsleiter I believe that to mean " Kanu Uebungsleiter" or canoe exercise leader; the inland units had to resort to what ever would float on the rivers or streams in their area.

-page 45: grosse Wasserfahrt to me indicates an extended trip by water. The itinerary on the Danube demonstrates that re. Passau, Vienna to Budapest.

Hello Ericc:

I stand corrected in my assumption or rather can offer a correct explanation of the meaning of "HJ K-Uebungsleiter". Another document I just viewed, a graduation certificate from an HJ-Area school, clearly indicates the "K" as standing for Krieg and here HJ-Kriegs Uebungsleiter. These persons were considered qualified to conduct training in shooting- and terrain exercises.

Hi Gents,

 

sorry, the K stands for "Kriegs" which means this was a temporary promotion (or authorization to be instructor - in this case a "Uebungsleiter") for the duration of the war.
