Re: kfz Instandsetzungsgruppe

Hi Christoph, Thanks for your reply. It raises another question though: Should the tanks themselves also have this tactical marking somewhere on them? On the models I have from Tamiya and Dragon there is no mention of them. (by the way: I was pointed to your site a couple of months ago and your KstN...

kfz Instandsetzungsgruppe

Hi all, According to http://www.wwiidaybyday.com/kstn/kstn11751nov41.htm , a Kfz Instandsetzungsgruppe was part of a mittlere Panzerkompanie. I am building that gruppe on a 1:35 scale and was wondering what kind of markings the vehicles would have that were in the gruppe. I tried Leo Niehorster's si...

Re: Major Rudolf Japs, 73. Inf.Div

Hi Nika,

It's not much :
Japs was Ia (operations officer) of this division from Mar 1943 - Dec 1943.

There was also a Oberleutnant Japs that was adjutant of Arko 18 in januari 1939.

He did not receive the Knights Cross, DKiG or Ehrenblattspange.

That's really all i can tell you.

Regards Eric

Re: German Army 1st september 1939

Whatever Domen, you had some just criticism about mistaken dates, but I am not going to let you turn this topic about 'Stellenbesetzungen' into you're own personal struggle against the unreliability of german casualty figures or whatever your point is. I have read enough about that here : http://for...

Re: German Army 1st september 1939

FOR THE 2ND TIME: THIS TOPIC IS ABOUT THE GERMAN STELLENBESETZUNG ON 1-9-1939. :) It's certainly not about how many germans you think the polish killed in 1939 or should have killed it seems. I don't care about that in this topic and would politely ask the moderator to remove the above post from thi...

Re: German Army 1st september 1939

Here is Division Eberhardt , according to Bellin's book the names changed from Landespolizeiregiment 1 and 2 to 243 and 244 Infanterieregiment on 1-9- 1939. I have come across other names as well however. Danziger IR 1 and 2 for example.. I hope someone can shed some more light on the correct names....
