Hi,

It could be DRK aswell. I don't know how many organizations used the term "Landesstelle".

It's not a DRK Landesführer either. His surname was Dr. Schmid, I think.
If we become increasingly humble about how little we know, we may be more eager to search.

Good day

Time for these guys to have another run out

First up are unidentified signatures from individuals who ended up in the US 7th Army Interrogation Centre at the end of the war

The second page contains signatures from Heinrich Hoffman's Berlin Visitors Book

I think the guys on the third page may be Ritterkreuzträger. They are also from the Hoffman book.

Ring any bells?

Grateful for any help from you signature sleuths.

Ian

214 - looks like it says Schneider but it is quite a common way to sign the name so can't narrow it down I'm afraid.

240 (or it 210 ??) - General der Infanterie Friedrich Herrlein

229 - looks like it could be von Fürstenberg. There is a Hauptmann Freiherr von Fürstenberg in the 1943 DAL listed as being with Kav.Rgt 15 before the war and there is a Hauptmann Clemens Freiherr von Fürstenberg listed as a Kampfgruppe Kdr at Nijmegen in 1944 with the unit primarily consisting of troops from Pz.Aufkl.Ers.Abt 6 so possibly the same person.

220 - Max Sachsenheimer - Knights Cross, Oakleaves & Swords. Finished the war commanding 17.Infanterie-Division as a Generalmajor.

223 - not sure but what about Dedo von Krosigk although when he won the RK in May 1942 he was a Hauptmann in 16.Infanterie-Division.

72 - no idea I'm afraid other than the first name is Richard but the surname might begin with a B as Fritz Bayerlein signed his signature with the B almost looking like that.

I was wrong - it isn't Schneider. #214 is the signature of Max Spindler who served in various Gebirgsjäger-Rgt, finally commanding GJ-Rgt 99.
Finished the war as an Oberst and won the Knights Cross on 21st Dec 1940 and Oakleaves on 31st Jan 1945. He also won the DKiG on 8th Feb 1942 and the Ehrenblattspange on 15th July 1942.

211 - The only one I can find that might fit is Martin Kohz who was a Hauptmann in 1945 when he won the DKiG, but he didn't win the RK.

227 - Not 100% sure but what about Putzka? Erich Putzka was a Luftwaffe Hauptmann when he won the RK with 3./Fernaufklärungsgruppe 191 in December 1942?

Hello Hucks. I've done a bit more work on this and I believe 211 is Helmut Kopp and 227 is Hans-Gotthard PEstke.
Thanks very much for your contribution. Always appreciated.

Would anyone be able to confirm the signature on this document for me please: I think it might be Curt Joel but I have nothing to compare it to. It is signed for the Justice Ministry and dated 1934. I know Gurtner was in the lead position at around that time but also know Joel held the position on a temporary basis in the early 1930's.

I cant vewrify the signature Hucks but I notice that Curt Joel resigned around 1932. However ther is a Gunther Joel born 19th April 1903 in Kassel who m,ighty fit the bill a little better https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/G%C3%BCnther_Jo%C3%ABl You have probably checked this but might he be a better bet?

Hello Ian, thanks for the reply and the link. I have to agree that it could be a better option.
