I am trying to gather all information I can find on our Grandfather, his unit, associated battles the unit was involved in and or any other information somebody may have.
Grandpa and the Rommel family were friends and served already in WW1 together, as young mountaineer officers when chasing the italians all the way to the Piave, in the 12th Isonzo battle. The 2 remained friends and in close contact.
A letter from Rommel sent to my great grandfather indicates the feldpostnumber
a search comes up with the results:
(8.9.1943-22.4.1944) 9.2.1944 Kraftfahr-Kompanie
The letter is from August 1944 and was sent to the above number....but the list shows it was only used until 22.4.1944?
does anybody have any information which unit the number 57682 was associated with in August 1944?
where was his unit at that time? is there any known of pictures or infos available about his unit?
i have attached the letter
any help would be very appreciated, many thanks
