Re: Johannes Kummel

Dale, can do, but what I forgot to ask you is the date of all this, maybe that will help me as he left Africa in late summer 42 and was posted back to Stuttgart area to PzrErz7.

Grenadier to Panzergrenadier date

Hello All, I know I have it somewhere, but cannot locate it at this time, so does anyone have the date when grenadier regiments were renamed panzergrenadier regiment? This is refering to those formations in a panzergrenadier division.

thanks
Kevin

Re: Johannes Kummel

Dale, been away from the forum for awhile and just noticed you post. Unfortunately, I am away from my info and pictures at this time, but to the best of my knowledge Kummel never served with any heavy units during his time. He started with PzrRgt 8 (39-43) and ended in Italy with, I believe PzRgt 26...

Looking for any positions, overall numbers for officers and men and v...

Re: Feldgrau Author: Kevin Fish

Thanks for the update John. Well it seems that there has been little interest in this book on the forum. That being said, the current economic situation certainly has not helped with the sale of a costly book. (Best bargain is thru Amazon) I have received a few emails over the past year and have got...

Re: Zwolfender

Thanks guys, yes that sounds about right. The leutnant was an old veteran of the regiment who had been a Oberfeldwebel in Africa and was now a Lt in the training detachment. Looks like he must have had his 12 years and since he had a lot of experience they commissioned him to the rank of Lt. Thanks ...

Zwolfender

I understand the term Zolfender to mean 12 point buck/deer/hirsch

But how so when applied to the name of a person, the guy mentioned in the text was a former NCO who was now a Leutnant. Does this mean he was a Mustang officer of some type.

Thanks
