Karl-Heinz Moehle, Knight's Cross

Recommended Posts

I need a post World War II picture of Karl-Heinz Moehle that was taken in the 1950's or the 1960's. He was the first U-boat commander of U-123. Little of post WWII life of Moehle was not available. But I want to know if Moehle joined the Bundesmarine in the late 1950's. Thank you.

Hej!

Jag fick information från en vän om att MR Moehle inte bara gick med i Bundesmarine på 50-talet. Han blev också chef för NATO comnav baltap maj 1965. Hoppas att detta kan hjälpa dig att ta reda på mer om honom.

Dear Sir,

Thank you for this  good reply. I learn something new. Do you have a picture of Karl-Heinz Moehle von Hoffmannswaldau  in Bundesmarine uniform please?

                                                                                                                  Sincerely,

                                                                                                         Edward L. Hsiao

I forgot to ask what was Karl-Heinz Moehle von Hoffmannswaldau highest rank in the Bundesmarine before he retired from it?

                                                                                                                                   Sincerely,

                                                                                                                              Edward L. Hsiao

Edward,

I'm not sure that Jens Z is talking about the same person as you are.  Karl-Heinz Moehle does not appear in Franz Kurowski's book "Verleugnete Vaterschat - Wehrmachtoffiziere schufen die Bundeswehr".  This book contains a list of all Knights Cross holders that joined the Bundeswehr.

Regards,

Gordon

To whom this may concern.

The one Moehle I refere to is the only one my family has knowledge about. Born Norden 31 Juli 1910. Dead 17.11.1996 in Ahrensburg outside Hamburg. The Nurnberg-trails gave him 5 years in prison, for passing the Laconia order,  but realised by end 1949. Think it was onboard the U-22 he met my kusins father, but not sure about the submarine number. He took his wifes family name in the town of Kiel, end of 1949. I am very sorry if I mixed two different Karl-Heinz together, but I am never 100% sure about anything. Just fell to give Edward a hand closer to a picture of ............

Jen Z, I think the Karl-Heinz Moehle that you mention about was correct. He was commander of U-22 and U-123 during WWII. Moehle was in the Bundesmarine after WWII. The same Karl-Heinz Moehle! Hopefully a postwar of Karl-Heinz Moehle.

                                                                                                                                          Edward L. Hsiao

An after World War II picture of a clean shaven face man named Karl-Heinz Moehle is needed to forgot my troubles.I hope the picture will come soon.

                                                                                                                                                Edward L. Hsiao

Jen Z or Anyone,

I hope you got a picture of Karl-Heinz Moehle in after World War II times in the 1950's and 1960's.

    • Brian, Thanks for initiating this discussion. For me, it’s a combination of the thrill of the chase, the history behind the item, and the aesthetics, although this latter factor may seem a bit strange to some. To illustrate this, the very first thing I collected as a kid in the 1950’s was a Belgian WW1 medal, for service in 1914-18, which is bell shaped, with a very striking profile of a very dignified soldier, wearing an Adrian helmet which bears a laurel wreath. It was the image that
    • Thank you for sharing your story, it was most interesting and greatly appreciated, it makes this blog well worth the time to post. Regards Brian  
    • Hello I started collecting when I found my first Mauser cartridges in a field next to my parents' house next to Armentières. I was eight years old.  Then shrapnel, schrapnell balls, darts... That's how I became a historian. When I was 18, we used to walk through the fields with a metal detector to find our happiness. It was my time in the army as a research-writer in a research centre that made me love the orders of chivalry. I've been collecting them for 24 years now. Christophe
    • Thank you for your most interesting comment. The thrill of the chase didn't interest me in the beginning but over time it started to overshadow the act of simply adding yet another medal or group to the collection. Regards Brian  
    • I know the way I got into collecting is like so many other people; through a sibling. I also know that my love of history is barely unique in a place like this. So I know I have a shared background with many people. A less shared area - perhaps - is that I've always loved the thrill of the chase. When I decide I want, say, a 1914 trio with an original bar, to a cavalry unit, the utter thrill of getting out there and, (a) finding groups that fit the criteria and, (b) comparing them re: ranks, uni
