If anyone stumble about names and details regarding the Veternärkompsnie of SS-Geb.Div. NORD, lease notify here. So far I was unable to trace down any Kompsniechef of this Kp. :roll:

He was later IVc of this Division...and later of the "Karstjäger". Interestingly the unit history of the "Nord" claims the following regarding the VetKp.:
Die Veterinärkompanie- rund 270 Mann stark- seit dem Frühjahr 1942 in Aufstellung und nun im Einsatz- hatte in Tuchkalla ihre Zentrale eingerichtet. Mehr als 4000 Pferde, vor allem Zug- und Tragetiere für die Frontversorgungs-Staffeln, waren gesundheitlich von ihr und den Veterinärdiensten zu überwachen.
Auf Befehl der Division wurde mit Wirkung vom 15.Mai 1943 eine Diensthundestaffel (Stärke 2/4/37) gebildet und der Nachr.Abt. "Nord" disziplinär und wirtschaftlich unterstellt.

Schreiber mentions in the annex, that Dr. Kriener was succeeded by a SS-Hstuf. Dr. Dörr until the end in Germany 1945, but I was not able to find someone fitting...I have a Zahnarzt Dr. Dörr, but have not found any veterinarian...who can help in this case?

Hey Jan-Hendrik,

I also only have the dentist Willi Dörr, no one with the name Dörr who was a Vet.-Off. (IVc).
Did have something on Kriener but not what you wrote down here so that was new and nice extra information....

Interesting thread, hopefully we can shed some more light onto this Vet.-Kp.


Greetings,
Mike

Yes, that is the one I found, too. It seems the veterinarian service of the Waffen-SS is rather a undiscovered land :D :D

In the standard work on german veterinarian service in WW2,

Zieger, Wilhelm: Das deutsche Heeresveterinärwesen im Zweiten Weltkrieg.

topic Waffen-SS is covered on only 3 pages...

Hey Jan-Hendrik,

Yes, it's highly possible that this is still a topic that's not well explored.
And only three pages in that book you're mentioning, that's also not much indeed.


Phil,
Thanks for the extra info on Hausamen, I already had a bit on him but yours was very welcome for sure. Regarding Hausamen I also have a question for you. I do have another Hausamen, Dr. Erich , born in 1907. Is he maybe a younger brother or maybe the son of Camillo????

Greetings,
Mike

Hi Jan

Here what I have on veterinary units of the Waffen-SS.

Created from the Veterinärpark and the Pferdelazarett of the Kommandostab RFSS
No name of chief.

Heimatpferdelazarett der Waffen-SS 2 (former Heimatpferdelazarett der Waffen-SS Ostland)

One and surely two veterinary companies

Into 22. SS-Freiw.-Kav.Div.
I've found two companies perhaps regrouped into a Abteilung

Surely one veterinary company into the 37. SS-Freiw.- Kav.Div.

The name of the SS veterinary officers who led theses units or offices are less known.
I hope this help you.

Regards.

Phil D.
