Hello Rob,

I am sure that most of that info you requested is already availiable on the net. Try a search on google or here on the forum, here is Demelhuber as example: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Karl-Maria_Demelhuber

Thanks Georg for the link on Demelhuber. I don't mean to "spam" people with useless requests on information readily available on the net. For example I googled SS-Oberführer Adolf Ax (? - ?) and SS-Obersturmbannführer Hubert Meyer (? - ?) in particular and couldn't find anything. (Which is strange in the case of the latter, since he wrote the 12th SS divisional history) - rob

I have the following:

Ax: 23.06.06 - 06.02.83
Fitzhum: 14.09.1896 - 10.01.1945 (accident)
Heilmann: 20.04.1903 - 04.01.1945 (MIA?)
Marx (or Marks): 17.09.1903 - ?
Meyer: 05.12.1913 - ?
Augsberger: 10.10.1905 - 19.03.1945 (KIA)
Debes: 21.06.1890 - 14.07.1960
Deisenhofer: 27.06.1909 - 31.01.1945 (MIA)
Demelhuber: 27.05.1896 - 18.03.1988
Puaud: 29.10.1889 - 06.03.1945 (MIA)
SS-Obersturmbannführer Quist: 17.02.1896 - ?

Sources are probably this very forum and http://www.das-ritterkreuz.de/ (I have had this information for a long time).

I would like to add the following divisional commanders to the original question:
Brigadeführer Fritz Schmedes (07 Oct 1894 - ?)
Oberführer Hans Scheider (01 May 1889 - ?)
Oberfuhrer Hans Linger (27 Dec 1915 - ?)
Standartenführer Thomas Müller (02 Feb 1902 - ?)
Standartenführer Gustav Mertsch (? - ?)
Obersturmbannführer Franz Steineck (23 Mar 1909 - ?)
Obersturmbannfuhrer Hans Siegling (24 Dec 1912 - ?)
Especially Gustav Mertsch is a mystery. His promotion dates would also be appreciated.

Thank you Fred and thank you again Marc.

Odd that out of 5 DoD's two are 7 Feb and another two 24 Dec - but I'm sure they are correct.
