    Oberst Ernst Schürmann, GL/Flak-E 2

    Recommended Posts

    Greetings all and glad to be onboard.


    I am looking for records information, including possibly an official photograph/portrait for a Oberst Ernst Schürmann, whom I came across a reference of when reviewing a record of gun test firing activities in Oksboel (firing range in Denmark) that he was involved in on December 11th through December 18th, 1943.  I have very little else on him other than he was representing GL/Flak-E 2 at the time.  Have already solicited help from Mr. Stankey from the amazing LwOCS/Personnel Records of the Luftwaffe site but was not successful.  Anyone have access to additional information or perhaps a photograph?

    Data from LwOCS website:

    SCHÜRMANN, Ernst.  

    28.10.39 Maj., transferred from Fest.Flak-Abt. 34 to Flak-Abt. 298 and appt Kdr.

    There are quite a few men with that name listed in Inveno/Bundesarchiv with files but to locate any file a date of birth needs to be known.

    Hi hucks, 

    Yep, I forgot to check that - There's three Ernst Schurmann there in PERS 6-2 for Luftwaffe, I have it narrowed down to the one born 8.5.1894,  PERS 6/5376 - If this is indeed the right one. 


    because I think the other two third born in 1914 and 1920 were battlefield promotion (Kr.O.) and I don't have any evidence my man was prior enlisted.


    If anyone readily has anything else on this individual, I would be grateful.
