Hi, Fridgeman and Mad Dog!
Many thanks for your swift and helpful replies.
The alternative spelling and its search results could lead to other info? Also, Mad Dog, bless you for the LXXXVIII Korps and 30 Korps answer. I know that there was a fire, some years ago, in a national German archive (Freiburg?) and that many War Diaries were destroyed.
I have long sought a War Diary for Festung Den Helder, indeed for early-1945 records of any German Army and Kriegsmarine units in the Texel - Den Helder - Beverwijk zone...e.g. for the 963 Marine Schutzen Regiment.
Also, the War Diary of 1 Survey Regiment, the Canadian unit which. on 18 May 1945 liberated Texel, gives almost no information as to how long the unit was on Texel or how the unit conducted everyday military and civil affairs activities.
In contrast, I have found a website which contains many documents of British and Canadian artillery units. That site has what looks like the War Diary of the regiment which liberated and evacuated numerous German from and through the nearby island of Vlieland. This gem of a find fills in many of the gaps in my awareness of how the Dutch Friesian Islands were administered by Canadian 1st Corps forces.
That said I would welcome at any time any information or materials which relate to Texel, the other islands, Den Helder and the surrounding area both from 01 January - late-1945 and, especially, during the Texel Mutiny period of 05-06 April till 20 May 1945 and until and including their evacuation and repatriation to Soviet jurisdiction on and after 17 June 1945 and from 21 June, when they arrived at a Canadian-guarded transit camp in Wlihelmshaven and their repatriation via Magdeburg on 25 August 1945.
Thanks for your help guys and feel free to seek my help if needed.
