I would like to know if Herbert Gomille survived the war or not. If so KIA where and when?

Hello MWellner!

It's not easy to find some information on Herbert Gomille but here's a drawing of him according to the referred website...

Hello again!

The only facts that I found after some searching on the Net is a Major Gomille that commanded the heavy (Tigers) III./Pz.Rgt. "GD" between June 1943 and April 1944. No explanation why he left this command in April 1944. Maybe someone with axcess to more specialized sources on GD might find something. I was thinking on the three volume series by Helmuth Spaeter. Anyhow, here's some sources that I found, and the second one contains a lengthy report written by Major Gomille on August 31, 1943. I do hope it's the same Gomille...

Btw, Herbert Gomille recieved the German Cross in Gold on 14.02.1942 as a Hauptmann commanding 5./Pz.Rgt. 4.

Hello to all :D; a little complement (did not found a picture of him here)..................

Herbert Gomille!

Gomille held the rank of Hauptmann and in September 1942 he was commander of the II. / PR 4 of 13.Pz Div when in a furious battle against Soviet tanks, together with Hauptmann Barth who commanded the 1. / Pz. Jg.Abt. 13, managed to destroy as many as 33 enemy tanks in three days.
