No thanks Phil, done with pleasure.
I've just integrated the info from http://et.wikipedia.org/wiki/Saksa_Julg ... tsei_ja_SD since that page gives us a pretty good overview how the Sipo and SD in Estonia looked like in 1942, 1943 and 1944. I can't read what is all written there(also a translation didn't helped me that much)but at least we can clearly see how the Abteilungen and the Referate looked like and who was in command. And yes, I could have written it down year per year as done on that Estonian site but I thought they way I was doing it also would make sense.......

Greetings, Mike

Gesse is correctly SS-Oschaf Geese (probably identical with 1940 KOA z.Pr. Karl Geese from Stapo Weimar)
Bechreiser is correctly SS-Rottf Bechreiner

Good morning everybody,


Thank you, Puck, for sharing this interesting document!

Here's what I have on the subject:

Hauptaussenststelle der SIPO und des SD Dorpat
SS-Obersturmführer Gert Erich BARON von SEEFELD [06 VI 1908 Degahlen/Degole - 1964]

SD-Erkundungskommando III Struga-Krassnyj
SS-Untersturmführer Nikolai ZEYFFERT [22 I 1915 Riga – 1944]

Besides I have also:

Aussentstelle der SIPO und des SD Krassnoje Selo
SS-Hauptsturmführer und Kriminalkommissar [23 VI 1943] Heinrich BERGMANN [21 XI 1902 Kassel - 1980]
date unknown

SS-Hauptscharführer und Kriminaloberassistent Karl GEESE [17 X 1907 Heinum]
