Hi,

could you please help me? i am trying to reconstruct the military past of my grnadfather. perhaps the ones of you that have more experience in this things could help me in this case. the only things i know are:
there are two fieldpost numbers: - 31 498B
- 05 309A

than i know from pictures that the first time in war he had been in finnland/russian using a "infanteriegeschütz".
than he had to go back to learn how to drive tanks. after this he drove things like the hummel.

i now want to know in which companies he had been in correct order. for the specialists this sould not be too difficult, as there are this two fieldpost numbers.

Please be that kind to help me as this is the last hope to get a clear view on where he had to fight.

one thing as this could perhaps be important, his name is Johann Holzmann.

thanks in advance,

The most important detail is the dates......

Without them, it is not possible to puzzle together a list of locations.
However, these two units kept the same numbers for allmost the entire war, so if you are sure these are the ONLY two, these locations might give you a good start:

31 498B
June 1941 - March 1945. Artillerieregiment 230
(Under 169 Ifanterie div. In Finland 1941-43. Late in 1944 moved into Northern Norway where they stayed until 1945.

05 309A
June 1941 - March 1945. Feldersatz-Btl 230 (A means Stab)
Alos located in the Lappland-Northern Norway

hi,

thanks for the reply, here is more info on the dates:

from about mai 1941-june 1942 he had been at the normal "geschützstellungen" (don't know in english), see picture 1
-> is that artillerieregiment 230 or feldersatz-btl 230?

from about mai 1943, after the training on tanks in germany - 1945 he had been driving tanks, see picture 2
-> is that artilleriergt 230 or feldersatz-btl 230?

please help me to bring this in the correct order. other field post numbers do NOT exist.

thanks,

ak2311

Hello.......

Difficult questions.

My suggestion would be that he was attached to the 230Art.Rgt in Finland. (1st photo) Typical gun for a Art.Rgt supporting infantry (3 leichte + 1 schwere batterie)
For some reason, he has then been taken out of service, and then joined the ersatz regiment.
From there he has been taken into service at another regiment, most likely some sort of Panzer-artillerie Regiment. As far as I know, 230Art.Rgt didn`t have any motorized artillery. Doesn`t make sense with this kind of gun supporting an infantry division?

I think there is a missing unit in the end of his career!

feldpost 05210 December 1942

Post by fran1942 » 14 Aug 2004 07:13

Hello I have another christmas card from the 57th Infanterie Division.
One regiment in this division was Adolf Hitler's regiment from WW1.
Perhaps this feldpost is from that regiment ?

Any help is appreciated with FELDPOST 05210, December 1942

Thank you.

feldpost numbers

Post by macdaddy » 30 Aug 2004 23:53

Hey there guys! I was wondering whether someone could please track down the units for a few feldpost numbers I have? They are 15423, and 26664 both in November of 1943, and what I believe is a Luftwaffe feldpost number 05315D during November of 1943 as well. Any help with these would be greatly appreciated! Thanks guys, take care! Paul.

Just saw this sticky and thought I'd add a Feldpost number request here as well!

A friend's grandfather was killed at Stalingrad (Gorodischtschje) on the 1st December 1942. He has one very depressing letter written from the Kessel with the Feldpost number 10390 C - can someone help identify the unit please?

Many thanks...

I have several leave documents pasted into a diary, with Field Post Number 07515 T for various dates from November 1942 thru September 1943.

There is also another leave document that I'm interested in knowing the unit identity of: FPNr 36089 in August 1942.

The papers came with some other interesting documents, and I'd really like to know the units. Can anyone help me with the identities of these Field Post Numbers?

Thanks in advance,

~FV
