von Dobschutz info needed

Post by RobinH » Tue Dec 05, 2006 5:59 am

I am looking to do some research on a family crest (wappen) on a luftwaffe dagger scabbard. The family crest has been id'd to the "von Dobschutz" family ( u with an umlaut above it).

There was a Berhard von Dobschutz who was in bombers in kampfgeschwader 6 (later 3). Would anyone have rankliste info on if he was the only "von Dobschutz" in the Luftwaffe and some of his service history?

Thank you.

There was only one officer in the Luftwaffe in the rank of Oberleutnant and above by that name:

DOBSCHÜTZ, Bernhard von. 09.40 Hptm., appt acting Kdr. II./LG 1 (to 09.40). 01.03.41 promo to Maj. 23.04.41 appt Kdr. Erg.KGr. 4 (to 31.05.41). 15.01.42 appt IIa/IX. Fliegerkorps. 09.01.43 appt Kdr. I./KG 6 (to 05.04.43). 15.04.44 appt Kdr. I./KG 3 (to 18.08.44). 01.06.44 promo to Obstlt. 15.10.44 Obstlt., appt Kdt. Fl.H.Kdtr. A(o) 2/VII (to 04.45?).

Hope this helps a little.

Well, it has been a long time since this thread was last active. Due to the fact that Bernhard von Dobschuetz was my grandfather I could provide additional information if desired and of course I´d be interested myself to know more about the dagger scabbard.
Kind regards KvD

All I can add is that he was commander of the Manching airfield from 01/45 until 04/45. Afaik he tried to withdraw with some men and cars ( all aircraft had been destroyed so far ) to Austria but was caught in Tyrol and then became a POW.
