Oberstleutnant Sensburg

Post by Holuigue » Sat Nov 05, 2016 2:15 am

In September 1940, 4 would-be spies were dropped by boat on the English coast.(they left from Etaples, on the channel, where I come from). Their history is well documented: they lasted 48 hours.
A “major” Sensburg seems to have played a significant role in this escapade.
From what I have been able to find out, he might be Walter Albert Lothar Sensburg (1895?-1996), Hauptmann 1/11/13, Oberstleutnant 1/2/42.
On 5/12/40 He was apparently Leiter I.H. Brussels (what is that? I know AST Brussels was in charge of the area, but what does “I.H.” stand for?)
He obviously was very concerned with the suitability of the boats used to cross the channel, and took full responsibility for that.
I am interested in clarifying his position in August/September 1940.
Can anybody help?
Danke schön.

Addition:
He was eventually interrogated for the Nuremberg trials, in 45 & 46
I have references, but was unable to find the data ...
CI-IIR/51
CI-FIR/104
CI-RIR/5

Any clues?

I know much about him, including his final rank of Oberstleutnant am Dienst, where he was at surrender, and his life following the war.

...actually, Walter Sensburg was finally promoted to Oberst. He was interrogated for the Nuremberg Trials, but was not himself put on trial. What references do you have?
