Re: re stalag 1377

Who says we're not at war with Russia! 75% of the international crime currently plaguing the West originates in Russia or from the hands of the Russian Mafia. We are being slowly destroyed by criminals without a shot being fired.

Re: re stalag 1377

Not a Kriegslazarett. These were all numbered between 501 to 943.

Re: re stalag 1377

diverden - I just checked this reference that contains all of the Wehrmacht units in France by city, town and village and there is no entry for Avesnes or for Avesnes-sur-Helpe.

Re: re stalag 1377

There was no Stalag 1377 (4-digit numbers were not used), 137 or 377. However, there was a Frontstalag numbered 137. It was formed 18 August 1940 in Wehrkreis IV. There is no record of its employment. On 22 March 1941 it was renamed Dulag 137 and transferred East for the forthcoming attack on the US...

Re: NARA Rolls - FTP Server

Sam - Welcome to the club. I have attempted to use these FTP server sites off and on for the past 6 years and it is a frustrating, tedious and time-consuming job that more often than not turns out unsatisfactory.

Re: Feldgrau's Future

So few use the site anymore, moderators have become redundant. Axis History Forum is rapidly approaching the same fate. The old high traffic days of the 2000 - 2010 decade are long gone and will not return. My contention is that most of the clientele were siphoned off by social media, particularly ...

Hi Simon G., I am now too old and otherwise occupied to spend time on this anymore, but I certainly encourage you to pursue the fuel drum and plutonium threads back to their point of origin, i.e., when and how they came to be on the island, provided those photos are of Matsuwa.

No secret handshake needed. Since this has not been going well for you, I think you should PM one of our long-time members here, Piet Duits.
