The upper one is Regimentsstab Gebirgsjäger-Regiment 143.

I can't make out the forth number of the one in the stamp but if it is 24835 then that is...
(Mobilmachung-1.1.1940) Eisenbahn-Fernsprech-Kolonne 6,
(2.1.1940-27.4.1940) Eisenbahn-Fernsprech-Kompanie 6,
dann Eisenbahn-Fernsprech-Kompanie 146,
(15.2.1942-30.7.1942) Eisenbahn-Fernsprech-Bau-Kompanie 146,
(24.8.1943-5.4.1944) 12.4.1944 schw. Eisenbahn-Blankdraht-Kompanie 146.

But I think the FpNr in the stamp is the same as the one at the top of the envelope.

Hello
I think that the FPN are the same (handwriten and on the purple stamp)
24823 belonged to:
(28.4.1940-14.9.1940) Regimentsstab Gebirgsjager-Regiment 143.
The information came from here:

Kindly regards from Belgium and sorry for my poor english knowledge.

Thanks for the fast reactions.

I'm new in paperwork so I want to ask a question. The envelope is assigned to Leutnant Thaler in Bergtesgaden. The stamp and dienstellenumber are they from the person Thaler or from the person who send the letter?

The envelope contains a ek2 award paper to Leutnant Thaler.

Thanks

Considering that the address on the envelope is to a different unit then I would say that they relate to the unit that has sent the envelope - Lt Thaler probably served with GJR-143 (6 GJ-Division) when he won the EK II, and that unit is forwarding on the citation to the officer who had been re-assigned.
Would be interesting to see the signature on the citation.

Very nice - that is the signature of future Generalfeldmarschall Ferdinand Schörner.

Hi Kloster
I Found this:
01026
(Mobilmachung-1.1.1940) 6. Sperr-Kompanie Grenzwacht-Unterabschnitt IV Grenzwacht-Abschnitt 51,
(2.1.1940-27.4.1940) 6. Sperr-Kompanie Grenzwacht-Regiment 61,
(2.1.1940-27.4.1940) Pionier-Kompanie Infanterie-Regiment 674,
(25.1.1943-31.7.1943) gestrichen,
(24.3.1944-6.11.1944) 2.9.1944 Regimentsstab und Stabsbatterie Artillerie-Regiment 18 (18. SS-Division).
And I saw that the FPN 01026 does'nt exist in 1943

Are you sure that the first number is a 0 ??

Thanks for the Reply Prosper - I had looked at the list and saw the same notice, luckly the letter is still there with the mention of the same FPN on the last page.

Does my B/W scan of the FP dienst number make sense? I can read 01026 it in, I have tried many saturation variations, but this was one of the best that came, using http://retroreveal.org/

Does the letters help any further or is it a makeup cover?

The FPN in the letter is the same as on the envelop: 01026
What I read and able to translate is that the sender of the letter was returning to the eastfront (ostfront). I guess it was in the north (but I am not sure) afther spending 5 months at the homefront.( Heimatdienst)
Sorry but I am not able to help your further
Kindy Regards
Prosper :wink:

01026
its Pionier-Kompanie Infanterie-Regiment 674
Feldpostnummer and Unit and period matching perfect -

01026 were activated between 2.1.1940-27.4.1940 and cancelled between 25.1.1943-31.7.1943

so its active at 14.3.43

But Inf.Rgt 674 was disbanded in July 1940 and used to form battalions to guard PoW camps.

its only the old entry in FPÜ with deisgnation , the Pionier-companie 674 was a idependence after Regiment was disbanded (you can read this in the letter) and the name/designation in FPÜ didnt canged - here is a scan of the units (with more independence ones)

Hello Uwe and thank you for the reply.

Altho not making alot of sense. Is the FP numbers at this site not correct or incomplete?

And did my envelope + letter help with anything?
