Re: Goodbye

p.s. to my last post. Mentioning the progress or lack thereof, is not meant to solicit "poor Haen" responses. Just to keep you informed and let you know that I have not croaked yet. :D . Live long and prosper ! HN I don't think anyone here would, or even could, have thought you were after a "poor H...

Re: The route of the SS Der Führer............

Thanks for the picture Juha! I've tried switching back to the old version of Photobucket (there is a button on the new screen for that) but nothing happens then :( Raul, As far as I'm aware Der Führer was never in the vicinity of Roermond, the city lies well outside their area of operations during t...

Re: The route of the SS Der Führer............

Hello Tigre, I'm afraid you've gotten your bridges mixed up, we do have a lot of them here and it's esy to get confused :wink: . The one you labeled as "On the Meuse (Doesburg?)......." is indeed a bridge over the river Meuse but it is located in the city of Roermond. Doesburg is not on the Meuse ri...

Re: Why don't we ever hear the word "Heer" in documentaries?...

I agree with Jerry though in this instance I'm sort of glad about the ignorance. In Dutch (like in most languages) we don't use capital letters for all nouns but only for names. So in this case I'm sure that Dutch documentaries would gladly report that "....the Lord crossed the Polish border". I do ...

Re: Kleiner Bär - Upper Rhine 1940.

Hello Tigre. In support of your story about Kleiner Bär I add these foto's. The caption in the newspapers they appeared in (the Südkurier and the Anzeiger) says the guns are 28cm SK\L 40 Kurze Bruno Kanone (E) but I'm sure they both are 28 cm SK\L 42 Schwere Bruno Kanone (E). Since only two of these...

Re: Grusse, mein alter kaempfer

Hi there Don, long time since you've been here!
That goes for me too though, way too busy to dig into that quirky little hobby called Wehrmacht :( , sadly I'm reduced to just the odd reading of a handful of posts on a very irregular basis.

Hope you're well,
best regards,

KStN 1124 Kraftfahr-Pionierzug

Hi all, Looking at KStN 1124 there is something that I can’t figure out. According to Christoph’s site this Kraftfahr-Pionierzug was divided into a Zugtrupp and Zug. The Zugtrupp is clear to me but the Zug has three Gruppenführer and that would indicate that the Zug was divided into three Gruppen. B...

Re: KStN 103

Thank you Leo. Would you happen to know of any description in a book that could give an idea of what it may have looked like? Or if KStN 104 of 1-10-39 or 107 of 1-12-39 (or 1-10-39, Tessin typo?) can be found anywhere? Do you have any (hypothetic) idea how 103 would have compared to 104 as they wer...

Aufstellungswellen 5 to 8

Hi all, A question about the personnel of the Aufstelungswellen 5, 6, 7 and 8. Lexikon der Wehrmacht.de gives the Personelle Zusammensetzung of Welle 1 to 4 with quite exact percentages of Aktives Personal, Reservisten I, Reservisten II and Landwehr. For Wellen 5 to 8 they only give the differences ...

Truppenkennzeichen 1. Infanterie-Division

Hi all, There are many reproductions of this emblem to be found in books and on the net but they are all quite different from each other. I take the differences in the lower half of the shield (rounded or pointed) and the crown on top (three or four blocks/points) as variations that occured over tim...
