C.R.O.W.C.A.S.S Commander Help.

Postby copperpotuk on 11 Jan 2013 18:10

I have recently obtained a personal translation book belonging to Lt Col R F Luck with his address of C.R.O.W.C.A.S.S, 6889 Berlin Documents Centre, USA APO 742, Berlin.

From the book hunting evil I have found that Lt Col Luck was in charge of C.R.O.W.C.A.S.S in 1946, yet any further information and a picture of him would be welcome, I have conducted various internet searches yet can find any pictures of him.

Can anyone help??

Hi

This main seem an obvious question given the information that you hold, but was this officer British firstly and secondly what does CROWCASS stand for? I'm guessing at the moment that it was a multinational post give the US postal code!

Hi, just from some research and a book I have (Hunting Evil) I have gathered a Lt Col R F Luck was in charge of CROWCASS, I am guessing this is Col Richard Frederick Luck 37262 (Born 25 March 1907 Died Feb 1963) OBE Kings Dragoon Guards, Son of Col Luck CMG DSO.

CROWCASS was: Central Registry Of War Criminals And Security Suspects, basically they gathered lists and hunted, the address was in Berlin and USA APO ref No 742.

Hi

Ok well given the subject matter maybe it would be better suited in the H&WC section, and the expertise that resides there!
