Pi.Btl. 106 / Pi.Btl. 326

Post by Christian » Sun Feb 21, 2010 5:09 pm

I am looking for information about Hauptmann Hemmerich, Erwin (Kdr Pi.Btl 326). In particular I would like to know if there is an organization that I might contact in Germany to secure some further details about his military career and maybe a photo of Hauptmann Hemmerich.

I am already aware of the facts that he led 3./Pi.Btl. 106 in 1942 and was awarded the German Cross in Gold (DKiG) on 01.04.1942. I also know that he received posthumously the RK on 28.03.1945 as a Hauptmann and Kdr. of Pi.Btl. 326.

Thanks in advance for any further details/information.

Hauptmann Erwin Hemmerich (KIA 10.03.1945 - 19.03.1945?) is buried in the Rheinbrohl cemetery (Rheinbrohl is a municipality in the district of Neuwied, in Rhineland-Palatinate, Germany), grave 23.

To bad I'm just back from that area (I was at Andernach) I could have take a picture of his grave . . .

Details about his military career you can request at the Deutsche Dienststelle (WASt), just fill out an online tracing request and be patient . . . (will take 6 > 8 month's for a answer, if details are available)

Did you contact the deutsche Dienststelle (WASt) and/or the Freiburg Bundesarchiv (Militärarchiv) already ?

I do not believe that WASt will share any information since I am not a relative.
BAMA on the other hand could be an option.
