Abbreviations meaning?

Post by Jens Andersen » 30 Oct 2016 18:14

Hello,

I have found the abbreviations below in an evaluation report concerning a German officer:
"F.s.g.a."
"F.g.a."
Can anybody around here explain them?

best regards
Jens

P.S.:
I can't find them in the US handbook "GERMAN MILITARY ABBREVIATIONS" from 1943.

in an evaluation report concerning a German officer
F could be for Führer, FS for Führer Schule , G.A for Gefechtsausbildung ( combat training, battle drill ).
Then, it could be mean, something related to Chief of Combat Training.

Hello,

Thank you for your suggestion, but I don't think it fits.

To give some idea of the context, you can find the complete text below:

"Äuβerst pflichtbew.,ehrgeizig,unermüdl.tätig.Besonders bem. um Fortbildung.s.Offiziere.F.s.g.a.Geeignet zum Kdr.einer Feld-Div."

"... Bei s.groβe Gründlichkeit fällt es ihm,bes.in schw.Lagen,nicht leicht,sich von Einzelheiten freizumachen u.den Blick auf d.Ganze zu richten.F.g.a.Befh.Höh.Kdo."

Best regards
Jens

Here some other possibilities:

- Fällt (sehr) gut auf
(Be noticed (very) good)
-Fähig, (sehr) gut as
(Competent, (very) good as)
-Führer, (sehr) geeignet as
(Leader, (very) qualified as)

But the last two don't fix well with the first evaluation, because the following sentence starts again with "Geeignet" (qualified)...
Si vis pacem para bellum
