Hi

He was a danish officer. Born 31/05/1899. Member of Frikorps Danmark as Leg-Hstuf and commander of the 4 Kompanie. After 1943 he was promoted Stubaf and assigned to the 23th division Nederland. I have him commander of the SS Freiw Pz. Jäg. Abt. 54. Killed in action in Estonia (or Latvia) on 13/02/1944.
Maybe someone have better infos on himand I never see picture of him in any book on danish or foreign volunteers.

Phil D.

Schock was initially to command SS-Stug. Abt. 5, for the SS-Division "Wiking". However, this unit never fully formed, and instead, with one Batterie of Stug., it formed the core of SS-Panzerjäger Abt. 54/23 for the Brigade/Division "Nederland". Since Schock left the Frikorps Danmark soon after the formation commenced, it suggests that he was part of the active anti-Nazi element of that unit (the group around Kryssing that were Royalist supporters of the king, who joined to offset the DNSAP influence on the unit, but who were reassigned after the Danish Nazis mutineed against Kryssing).

Was Schock killed 12 or 13 February 1944? Where can one find confirmation? Tieke says it was 13 February however when comparing other source material, the counter-attack at Siivertsi seems to have happened rather on 12 February and not on the 13th.
