Re: Wiking Feldpost Card

Thanks Fridgemam. Some points to consider. He doesn't appear on the Volksbund website as being killed. I paid about Euros 9 for the card.

Re: Wiking Feldpost Card

Hi Fridgeman.... do you think he was recovering from being wounded? Or was it a transfer to HQ? Thanks for the translation :)

Wiking Feldpost Card

This is my latest Wiking purchase. Written by someone in the Divisionsal HQ of the 5th SS Division "Wiking" FPR Nr 16284. Can anyone tell me what is says? After the FPR 16284 it appears to show a "VI", what is this relevant to? Any comments welcomed! ;)

I / Artillerie-Regiment SS Division Wiking

Can anyone give me any tips for researching I / Artillerie-Regiment SS Division Wiking ? I have just received "European Volunteers - 5th SS Panzer Division Wiking" - Paul Strassner, which is a very fine book, but want finer detail of the previously mentioned unit. Thanks ;)

Re: Translation Help :)

Cheers Christoph! I'm going through these letters and picking out little bits here and there as I don't read German. A slow process ;) As for the Thon reference, I believe the writer is referring to Dr Hans Thon DKiG of the SS San Abt 5. Anyway, thanks for helping :up:
