These abbreviations kill me!

Post by Kriegsprache » 13 Apr 2019 22:35

Hi, guys!

I would like to politely ask you to help me with a few abbreviations, regarding ranks and military units or functions that I find impossible to decipher:

„NO“ as in „NO, Pz.GR.35“ - I think it might be the equivalent of NCO (Non Commissioned Officer) but I am not sure. Also, a slight anomaly here ... the 35th looks like a „Polizei Grenadier“ not a „Panzer Grenadier“ unit. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/35th_SS-P ... r_Division

„St.OJ“ or „St.O.J.“ - I found both these abbreviations in relation to rank. I could deduce they might have something to do with „Standartejunker“, but for that „O“ I found no explanation until now.

That's all for now, but I think the list will keep getting bigger as I am going through more and more documents.

Thank you! :milwink: :milsmile:

Small update: St.O.J is Standartenoberjunker - The highest level a Cadet could reach

NO could be abbreviation for Nachrichten-Offizier.
If we become increasingly humble about how little we know, we may be more eager to search.
