Re: Looking for information on a "malgre-nous'

It does seem to fit with what happened. Judging by how he finished his last letter I think he knew that he wouldn't be returning home. There is a chance that he was taken prisoner by the Russians but died in a PoW camp at a later stage, but just as likely that he died in the final days of the Regime...

Re: Looking for information on a "malgre-nous'

I can confirm that he isn't listed in the Volksbund database but the database, while extensive, isn't complete by any means.

Re: Looking for information on a "malgre-nous'

In the summer of 1943 Panzer Artillery Rgt 4 were located in France, in the region of Nantes-Angers, along with the rest of 14 Pz Division after it was destroyed at Stalingrad. It was sent back to the Eastern Front in October 1943 with the first units of the Division departing from France on 17th Oc...

Re: Looking for information on a "malgre-nous'

The Feldpost Number of 57710 isn't for Panzer Rgt 4 - it is for the II Battalion of Panzer Artillery Rgt 4, while the Feldpost Number of 47541 is for the Werkstatt Zug of the two units you mentioned... (8.9.1943-22.4.1944) 10.12.1943 Werkstatt-Zug I Panzer-Regiment 4, (25.11.1944-8.5.1945) 17.4.1945...

Re: Polizei Dienstpass Translation Request

Having relooked at the information, the movements for 3 Kompanie listed above are wrong for 3./Pol.Btl 322. Those listed above relate to 3./Pol.Rgt Mitte and with Pol.Rgt Mitte, 3./Pol.Btl 322 was reported as the 9 Kompanie. So its movements do allow for the entry n the Dienstpass for the Rollbahn 1...

Re: Polizei Dienstpass Translation Request

Thanks for the additional comments. I have been able to find out a decent amount of information about the movements of Pol.Btl 322 but tallying them up with what is mentioned in the Dienstpass is confusing although Google Earth has been a great help. The 252 Inf.Div entry doesn't tally with 3 Kompan...

Re: Polizei Dienstpass Translation Request

You have come up trumps again, thank you. It is hard to know what places they mean as during the period shown Pol.Btl 322 were going from place to place rounding up and executing Jews, including massacres at Bialystok in July 1941 and in Mogilev in Ocober 1941 so I would imagine places like villages...
