V. SS-Geb. AK officer signature

Post by FransN » 26 Dec 2019 21:48

Can anybody help me with this signature of an officer of V. SS-Gebirgs-Armeekorps (maybe its IIa = Adjudant???). The first two letters look like "Ri...." or "Ki....", the third letter may be a "c" or an "e", there may be an "m" in the middle, and it may end on an "a". I could not find any such officer (or anything close) in John P. Moore's "Führer Liste der Waffen-SS", 2002.
Anybody??? Your help is much appreciated!
Frans

Hi Frans,

I read "Riemke". The Volksbund has 36 person listed with this name (for both WW).

Regards,
Roman

It is the signature of Erich Reinke.

Just to be clear, Riemka (not Riemke) was not an officer but an NCO: SS-Hauptscharfuhrer is the equivalent of Master Sergeant.

Cheers, Gert

Thanks guys. Riemka as a Hauptscharführer (and not a Hauptsturmführer): It all makes sense now!
