I recently acquired an old envelope that went through the feldpost. The postmark and writing are very clear on it and I am anxious to find out where it was sent. But I have searched your feldpost number database and the postmark and feldpost number on the envelope doesn’t match what’s in the database. I’m hoping someone might be able to help me figure out where this letter was sent.

The feldpost number is in your database, but the dates for it fall before and after the postmark on the envelope.

If anyone can help me determine where this was sent, I would really appreciate it.

For the date on the envelope of 20th March 1942 the Feldpost Nr 11491 is for...
(15.9.1940-31.1.1941) II. Abteilung Luftgau-Nachrichten-Regiment 7

For the other Feldpost Nr of 13764C it is for...
(1.2.1941-11.7.1941) Regimentsstab, Nachrichten-Ersatz-Kompanie, Geschütz-Ersatz-Kompanie
und Panzerjäger-Ersatz-Kompanie Infanterie-Ersatz-Regiment 215,
(15.7.1942-24.1.1943) Regimentsstab, Nachrichten-Kompanie u. I.G.-Kompanie Reserve-Infanterie-Regiment 215.

The dates you see are the approximate start dates for the Feldpost Nr's, not the start and end dates.

Hi:

I don't know anything about Feldpost numbers so my source may not be of value. On my FTP server I have FPN Teil I and III. It is under OKH Rolls 132 and 133. All my rolls are free. The login is:

Hucks - Thanks for confirming this.

Is it possible to estimate a location position for 935 at this particular mail date.

There seems to be little information out there but it looks like they were in the Odessa region in April 1944 before heading to Latvia in July.

Hi everyone !! :)

I have some italian receipts issued to hotel by the following feldpost number which I was not able to identify:

- "Dienstelle L.G.P.A. L 53207" . The date is at the end of December of 1943 and the first days of January 1944. I suppose the FP n. 53207 has something to do with a Luftwaffe unit...

- "Dienstelle FP. Nr. 56293 B ". The date is at the end of January 1944. I found in another post a user who posted this FP number for March 1944 so for the end of January is the same unit (Stab und Einheit Geb. Korps-Nachr. Abtl. 451 ) ?

- "Sturmbrigade R.F. / SS.P.F. 45796.B". The date is at the middle/end of November 1943. It is the Stab of Sturmbrigade Reichsführer-SS which later became 16. SS-Panzergrenadier-Division Reichsführer SS ?

- "F.P. nr. 56293 A ". The date is at the end of January 1944. I really have no idea about it.

- "F.P. nr. 40418". The date is at the middle/end of January 1944. I really have no idea about it.



Thank you so much for you help !! :)

45796...
(28.2.1941-29.7.1941) Filmtrupp 18,
(30.7.1941-28.2.1942) gestrichen,
(8.9.1942-11.3.1943) Stab u. 1.-4. Kompanie Reserve-Infanterie-Bataillon 388,
dann Stab III u. 9.-12. Kompanie Infanterie-Regiment 870,
(8.9.1943-22.4.1944) 13.9.1943 gestrichen, wurde Fp.Nr. 07408,
(8.9.1943-22.4.1944) 31.1.1944 Stab II u. 5.-8. Kompanie Grenadier-Regiment 992.

40418...

Thanks but I posted the date because I already found these information and all of them are not what I am looking for. The "45796", for example, is gestrichen during the period I asked and in fact I am looking for "Sturmbrigade Reichsführer-SS fp nr. 45796B".

The feldpost "40418" is used during the middle/end of January 1944, as I wrote, so has nothing to do with 1941.

I forgot also another feldpost number: "12545" . The date is at the middle of May 1944.

Thank you !!

The dates are the approximate start dates for the use of that number by the listed unit, not the start and end dates.
The FpNr database is far from complete but the listing for 45796 shows a lineage spanning the war so I would say that it was in use by those units only. The B would indicate a sub-unit of the main one listed - in this case 5.Kompanie of II/Gren.Rgt 992.

Sorry I do not know what are you saying so thank you very much for helping me to understand a new thing.

However I have to correct you about 45796 because the feldpost is used for the unit you wrote from january 1944. Instead I wrote: "Sturmbrigade R.F. / SS.P.F. 45796.B". The date is at the middle/end of November 1943.

So for sure the Division is the Sturmbrigade Reichsführer-SS. I think there is no doubt, we are at the end of November 1943 and the 16. SS-Panzergrenadier-Division Reichsführer SS will be ready in a few days from this date.

Now the problem is to understand what unit subordinate, as you said, used F.P. 45796B at the end of November 1943. I have no idea, I try to look with Google but nothing...

It is also strange that FP 12545 is used by "Militarverwaltungsstab Oberbefehlshaber Sudwest" which is, if I am not wrong, the administration of Heeresgruppe C. At the middle of May 1944 Kesselring was in the region of Lazio that is 360km far from the place where the german unit issued this receipt for the hotel.
What have to do the administration of Heeresgruppe C so far from their Kommando ?? I think also in this case there is an incomplete information about the unit who used this feldpost number.
