Hello John,

Thanks for the explanation, it makes alot of sence and it's all alot clearer now.
And of course I didn't expect to find all the officers here but it's a good tool to search
and if I can find something it's just wonderfull. If I don't find anything it's not such a big
dissapointment.


Greetings,
Mike

Hello John,

The Hstuf Kaiser in Verluste 3a.jpg, is he identical to SS-Hstuf Vinzenz Kaiser???
The Ostuf Otto in Verluste 3a.jpg, is he identical to SS-Ostuf Wolfgang Otto???

And Hartner from Verluste 3a.jpg, is that the following person maybe??
Wolfgang Hartner, born on 5-11-1907 in Mainz, died on 11-10-1941 in Gailokalns.


Thanks,
Mike

Mike - The answers are Yes, No and No. Ernst Otto is the officer in Rgt. "DF". None of the 4 officers from the I./SS-T.I.R.1 killed during the attack on Ssuchaja-Niva on 20.10.1941 are buried in graves registered with the VDK. Vopersal remarked in his book, "Soldaten Kämpfer Kameraden", that the battalion had been reduced to only 137 men and that the companies were all led by NCOs. Another research tool is to check the place of death names that you find on the VDK Web site via Google or Yahoo to determine the exact geograhic location and see if that matches the information on where the division was operating at the time. While you won't find "Gailokalns" via Google, it is also not found in the "Ortsverzeichnis" in the Ullrich book on the T-Div. Hans Hartner, born 25.2.14 is who you were searching for.

Okay, one positive, that's better then nothing. Thanks for confirming it was Vinzenz Kaiser. Never heard off Ernst Otto before, so thanks for bringing him up John.
It also means Friedrichs, Dornewas, Hermann and Hans Hartner were killed in action on 20-10-1941(quoting your writings: "None of the 4 officers from I./SS-T.I.R. 1 were killed during the attack on Ssuchja-Niva at 20-10-41"). Do you perhaps have the Christian names and the DoB/birthplace from the first three???

Thanks as well for telling me about the extra searchtools to check and double check certain things.
Thanks as well for the Christian name from Hartmann and for his DoB. Do you perhaps also know his place of birth??


You've been really helpfull and please excuse me if I ask you some more things later on.
With kind regards,
Mike

Usually "dear John letters" are not very popular ;)

Thanks Simon & Timo. I am also pleased to see that these reports are generating discussion elsewhere on this forum.

Here is the report from January 13, 1942.
