I found a site with a short English biography of von Diest-Koerber on the internet a while back and now cannot find it again. Does anyone know the site I am referring to?

Thanks.

Thanks Jan-Hendrik,

I am therefore confused. :roll:

The web page that I found the picture of the King Tiger with number "I" on it (above) was attributed to von Diest-Koerber. Are you saying that his tank did not have "I" on the turret?

SS-Polizei-Gebirgsjäger-Regiment-18

I own a Polizei helmet named to a member of SS-Polizei-Gebirgsjäger-Regiment-18 . Using various sources, I compiled a history of that regiment for my own use. I thought it might prove useful to some members. Please let me know if there are any glaring errors or omissions. Formation SS-Polizei-Gebirg...
