Hello,

It has been one year since I posted the list of RSD Officers. I am currently working on a book regarding the History of the RSD and it's Officers. If there is anyone who can provide any information and/or photos it would be most appreciated and credit will be given in my book upon publication. Very little has been written on the RSD espacially it's Personnel so I am hoping to help fill the gap in SS reseach with this project.

Best Regards,

James

Can I recommand you the illustrated book by Blaine Taylor
"Guarding the Führer" Sepp Dietrich, Johann Rattenhuber and the protection of Adolf Hitler.
an "odd" book by structure but full of of pics from German Collections in the US National Archivs and Library of Congress.
Published in 1993 by Pictorial Histories Publishing Company Inc at Missoula (USA)

I believe I have another name for you:

SS-Obersturmführer Hans Bastians -- Himmler's chauffer who commited suicide in 1941. I am not sure if this is the same as the Joseph Bastian you have listed above?

I applaud your research, I myself though find the SS-Begleitkommando boys far more interesting than the RSD guys. The SSBK boys had better stories to tell !!!

Hi Coburg!

Interesting stuff - I'd be interested to know which of these had other assignments than Hitler: I know that a number of Ministers, Reichskommissare etc. had their own RSD-guards . . . am I wrong when I think that I remember Wilhelm Eckold as assigned to Goebbels?

Hello Halfdan,

I am not sure about Eckold. I hope to find who was assigned to who when I visit the NARA. You are right about the Guard details protecting certain personalities of the Reich as listed in Peter Hoffmann's book, sorry I don't have more to offer at this time.

Best,

James

Cheers, James! How about Günter Schwägermann, Goebbels adjudant, also mentioned as Goebbels bodyguard - did he belong to the RSD?

Hello Halfdan,

As far as I know Gunther Schwaggermann belonged to the SS-BK/LSSAH. RSD did not provide Adjutants only Security Details.

James

I know, James - but as I mentioned, here and there you'll see Schwägermann mentioned as head of Goebbels' bodyguard, which was the reason for my question. So I guess Schwägermanns pure duty was as an adjudant.

Günther Schwägermann was not a member of the SS BK. He was an adjutant to Goebbels only. He did not have any duties with the SSBK.
