Hello everybody,

Can anyone add any further information on the career of SS-Hstuf Hans Drexel, please? I have the following details:

Born: Nov 22, 1919
Birthplace: Dettenhausen
Hstuf: 30/1/44
SS Number: 372,377
DKiG: Aug 3, 1943 (commander 10./"Germania"
RK: Oct 14, 1943 (commander 8./"Westland"
Died: Stuttgart, April 12, 1962

I would particularly like to know how and with which unit he received both classes of the Iron Cross (July and November 1941), when he was commissioned (did he attend Junkerschule?) and what happened to him after the award of the Knights Cross. Thank you.

I would also like to see the above information regarding Drexel. Regarding photos, I have seen photos from his wedding a few times. If anyone happens to have any of those photos I would be interested in seeing them, this of course also applies to any other photos of Drexel.

Best regards/ Daniel

Thanks Iltis and others. Priceless! Must delve into the Führerliste (if I can afford it!).

Must delve into the Führerliste (if I can afford it!).
Its one of those things Shane, I sat down and thought about it, balanced it against the money I spend on books, and the time I did waste searching for info on the web and not finding it half of the time and I decided that I couldnt afford NOT to get it.

Then John did his version with copies of the pages from the personnel files of men with high awards, and copies of personnel files of foreign officers and I was hooked. I still buy some books but the answers to almost everything I look for on a daily basis is in these disks.

Before John Moore's CD's my research was framed mainly around copies of DAL's which are great pre-war but for officers under Standartenfuhrer they are not brilliant after 1938. I'd recommend the Fuhrerliste CD's to everybody.

I should say here that I have no financial interest in this product at all but they have MASSIVELY moved my research forward.

Thanks again Iltis. I know where you're coming from regarding books and DAL's. I have the 1934, 1938, 1942 (Staf and above) and 1944 DAL's (including the W-SS DAL) and countless books and reference works on the SS. Admittedly I do find Mark Yerger's works excellent. I believe that I have most, if not all, of his works. But I WILL get around to buying John Moore's work - one day! Thanks again

Iltis - Thanks for your positive comments. I'm pleased to hear that you are finding a good use for those "Führerliste" CDs. I hope that they always exceed people's expectations.

John
