Re: Hard day for the IR 188 - 1939.

Lovely :D

There's next to nothing written about 68. ID in Polen, which makes these "Kriegstagebuecher" even more precious.

Thank you kindly

Could you shed some light on your source? Is there anything more in it about Polenfeldzug?

Re: Polenfeldzug - fighting for Osiek on Sept. 11th 1939

Already during the march reached the regiment the news that Osiek was strongly manned by the enemy, which attacked IR 91 with artillery support. The I./ AR 27 did it best and the guns' crews engaged the Polish attackers in direct fire at the first line. The infantrymen and the artillerymen fought s...

Re: Polish Units on the Eastern Front 1939

Hello Hans, Interesting information. This "6.Batal. K.O.P." can be Batalion KOP "Iwieniec" [KOP Battalion "Iwieniec"] (created as 6 Batalion Graniczny,[Border Battalion] later renamed to 6 Batalion Graniczny "Iwieniec"). Please see HERE for additional information in Polish. Most relevant information...

Re: Polish Units on the Eastern Front 1939

Hallo Hans KOP units were meant to protect Polish-Soviet border (borders with other neighbouring countries were protected by Border Guard) and its members were rather carefully picked from regular military units (not drafted directly to KOP). Serving in a KOP unit was regarded as an honour as they w...

Re: Polish Units on the Eastern Front 1939

Hallo Hans, What do you mean by "facing the Russians in 1939"? Do you mean fighting Soviets after 17th September 1939? And do you mean units based in Poznań/Posen only, or whole DOK VII (Dowództwo Okręgu Korpusu Nr VII, Corps Area Command Nr 7) with its headquarter in Poznań/Posen? KOP (Korpus Ochro...

Re: Wanted: name of border village in Ukraine(Siedlungshauptamt)

Hello,

My theory is, the writing is 'Kriszin', which most probably is Kryszyn. Kryszyn is a small village in SE Poland, a few kilometers from Polish-Ukrainian border (here it is on ViaMichelin).

Please post some sample of text where 's' and 'z' are written, just for comparison.

MJU

Re: luftwaffe 'also-rans'

Incidentally, what is 'high wing loading' - japanese pilots testing the heinkel single engine fighters found this objectionable? If I get it right, you get 'wing load' when you divide airplane mass/weight by area of its wings (to put it simply). The more kg/m^2 (or pounds per square feet), the high...
