Wasn't Gerardus Mooyman sent straight to 2./SS-PJA 54, to take over a platoon? That would be a Dutch example.Regiment Norge wrote:

Was this the case for other nationalities attending this 11 wartime course? Any comment on the dutch, danes, swedish, wallon and flamish participants?
The other two Flemish officers within the Kampfgruppe where Jan Uten and Marcel Laperre. Both men where participants of the shorter '3. Lehrgang für germanische Offiziere'. Laperre was also a participant of the Oberjunker-Lehrgang.Marc Rikmenspoel wrote:Michael, what about Marcel Laperre? Was he part of the 3. LfGO? Or the 11. KJL? Or both? He also was assigned to KG Rehmann after graduating from Bad Tölz, and survived the summer 1944 fighting.
Thanks Michael!-michael wrote:The 11. Oberjunker-Lehrgang was the first Waffen-Lehrgang following a Junker-Lehrgang. So far as I know there weren’t any subsequented Waffen-Lehrgänge after the 8. and 9. Kriegs-Junker-Lehrgänge.
Most of the Flemish SS-Oberjunker that attended an Oberjunker-Lehrgang had front experience. Two Flemish Junker that where transferred from the 3. Lehrgang für germanische Offiziere to the 11. Kriegs-Junker-Lehrgang didn’t had any front experience (in the ranks of the Waffen-SS), these Junker were Heyman and Van Hilst.
