Re: Feldpost # help

Thank You Herr Winkeler, I know some think asking in a forum is a lazy man's research tool, but I don't do a lot of German WWII history and my usual links were not finding anything. It's really appreciated when you guys step up with a helping hand!
Thanks Again

Re: 1560 Art. Regt, 560 VG in the Ardennes

Thanks Andries I've pretty much confirmed the date as Dec 17. My man would have been a Lt. with the Company mentioned in the personal account. He was wounded on Dec 20 and invalided back to Germany. Unfortunately I have yet to find the unit involved in any action on that date. The search continues! ...

Re: 1560 Art. Regt, 560 VG in the Ardennes

Thanks All Mad dog, I have those records but there is very little regarding the 1560. I'll check the 116th history! I've determined the tanks were M5's from the 707th Tank Battalion! "The attack by the light tank company of the 707th was disastrous. As it emerged from the village of Heinerscheid, th...

1560 Art. Regt, 560 VG in the Ardennes

I'm trying to trace the activities of the 1560 Arty Regt during the early stages of the Ardennes offensive. I've managed to track elements of the regt at Heinerscheid on Dec 17, Asselborn on Dec 18, Montleban (S.W. of Gouvy) Dec 19/20, Les Tailles (S.E. of Baraque Fraiture) Dec 21 and Odeigne (W of ...

Re: Führer-Begleit-Brigade in the Ardennes offensive

Hey Guys
Great Link Apollo, followed it and noticed a fairly long thread on the 560 VG, which happens to be my pet project. Don't suppose anyone can offer an English version, my German just isn't that good!

Re: Order of Battle, Voronezh, Aug-Dec, 1942

Perhaps we can try this in reverse! If the order of Battle on Aug.12, 1942 is as follows 2.Armee 168ID, Gruppe Blumm, 323ID, 57ID, 75ID VII Armeekorps 387 ID, 2/3 385ID, 340ID , XIII Armeekorps 377ID, 82 ID, 88 ID, 68 ID LV Armeekorps 383ID,, 95ID, 45ID, 299ID Can anyone provide a disposition of any...

Order of Battle, Voronezh, Aug-Dec, 1942

Haven't had much luck finding a decent order of battle for the German defenders on the Voronezh front from Aug to Dec 1942. I'm especially interested in the dispositions of the 340th Infantry Division. Some of the more recent publications don't list the 340th as even being there!
Thanks

Feldpost Numbers

I would appreciate a little help with these feldpost numbers, 04975 June 1942, 04542 1942-1944?, 09605 1943? All crop up in documents relating to a soldier I'm researching. Would also appreciate some sources for researching these numbers. Sorry to be a bother.
Thanks

560Volksgrenadier in the Ardennes

I've been trying to find a decent map listing the towns and roads between Bastogne and St.Vith and as far west as Hotton. I'm trying to map out the day to day progress of various elements of the 560 Volksgrenadier Division. So far everything I've come across is too specific to one particular area or...

Greanadier-Panzer-Jager Ersatzkompanie 11

Hi All I'm researching a Lieutenant who was assigned to Greanadier-Panzer-Jager Ersatzkompanie 11. He was with this unit based in Bialystok, Poland from April, 1943 to August 1943. I believe he missed the ghetto uprising in Bialystok in mid August since he was already with his new unit in Narvik by ...
