My research through this forum suggest that he may have been part of Kampfgruppe "Binz" in Italy at the end of WWII.
The officers listed include a Franz Scharf as an SS Ostuf to Franz Binz.
Is this a typo?
The officer above Norbert was SS - Oberfuhrer Jungkunz, commander of the 29 WGDdSS Italy no.1. in the summer of 1944.
The demise of battle group Binz came about by their surrender to USA troops from 1st armoured division near Gorgonzola just east of Milan and the rest of the battle group including Binz surrendered to 34th US Infantry division near Lake Kerrer in South Tyrol according to Siegrunnen no.64
Any comments or suggestions on where to find more information is appreciated.
