Re: NARA Rolls - FTP Server

Leo, you might want to check out the new rolls John put on his FTP. In particular T315 R1797 (256. I.D.).
It contains SOLL strength numbers for the division as of 6.6.1942. Not only personnel wise, but also for weapons, vehicles etc.

Thanks for uploading John!

After a long time of absence... SS-Pz.Gr.Div. stuff

Hi all, I've been away from the forum for quite some time now, taking a long break from research all together. However, there's one thing (amongst many others) that made me reconsider the absence. I am looking for something rather specific (what's new), being a Zustandsbericht/ Meldung/ report from ...

Hi guys,

50. Armeekorps, 1944

Hi all, Who of you has the NARA Rolls T314 R1246 and 1247 on the L. Armeekorps? I am looking for some small bits of information from it, and was wondering if someone has the rolls and want to share the info with me. I am looking for the Personnel FEHL strengths of the 83., 132. and 218. Inf.Div. as ...

Re: difference between Chef and Führer

Peter, Thanks for your response, but... nope, not completely true. I have seen numerous examples of lower ranking officers in command of a batallion. For example, an Oberleutnant as Batallionsführer. And that's exactly the point. If he was of higher rank, or longer in that position, he would become ...

difference between Chef and Führer

Hi, I have a question about the difference between -Chef and -Führer. I have a Hauptmann d.R. Erich Barnstedt, Batterieführer 5./ A.R. 205, in this position since 9.8.1941 !!! (Stellenbesetzung dated 15.6.1944). This seems more than odd, since he has the correct Stellengruppe (K) for the position, a...

Interesting fact on Werner Haupt

Hi all, I just found an interesting piece of information on the author Werner Haupt. He was a Leutnant d.R. with the 1./ Panzerjäger-Abteilung 181 as of 15.6.1944, aged 21 and an R.D.A. as of 1.12.1943. He was an "Abituriant" in civilian life. Well, that's it. Nothing fancy. Just wanted to share thi...

Personalveränderungsblatt: missing volumes

Hi all,

I am missing the following editions of the Verordnungsblatt (later named Personalveränderungsblatt):
30.1.1943
21.6.1943

I have the 30.1.1941 edition, but only on microfiche.

Does anyone have those editions, and are willing to share them with poor little old me?

Re: Ostuf Pehrsson, Battr.Führ. 3./ SS-A.R. 11 ???

Marc, Yes, that's what I thought too. But... as far as I can judge, this is an reoccuring error. And that's not logical. This doesn't mean it's wrong, as I have seen some other things I couldn't explain as well. For example, I have the Sturmbannführer Dr. Felix Rinner severally wounded between 15.1....
