Hello Waffen-IDF,

Thanks for giving us his promotiondate to SS-Hstuf.
But I don't have him as CO from SS-Feld-Ersatz-Bataillon 3 in March 1945.
And I checked his DoB again and my file says 27-2-1912, the same date as mentioned on the VDK-website:
Nachname: Frommhagen
Vorname: Erich
Dienstgrad: Obersturmführer
Geburtsdatum: 27.02.1912
Geburtsort: Salzwedel
Todes-/Vermisstendatum: 17.03.1945
Todes-/Vermisstenort: Stuhlweissenburg


Greetings,
Mike

Very good site about FSD but as far as I know only in Polish.

Edit. I see that there is also German version but does not include the page with decorations - http://www.rzygacz.webd.pl/index.php?id=45,295,0,0,1,0

Hello Marcus,

I know, that's where I've found some of the Christian names....
I also could have posted my findings in that thread but I choose for this one. Hopefully it's of some interest to some people, at least I did the best I could to find some Christian names.

One question: the holders of the First Class might be holders of the Second Class too, like the Iron Cross?


Thanks.

Heinrich Wiens is also listed on his SS-Officer file as holder of "Kreuz v. Danzig II. Kl. (39)".
born 22 March 1906
SS No. 22.984
20 Apr 1939, promoted SS-Hstuf.
at the time, with SD-Unterabschnitt Danzig (previously with 71. SS-Standarte until 31 Jan 1938)

Re: SS-Ostuf. Prechtel

Post by Mikedc » 02 Jul 2012 12:03

I think SS-Ostuf. Prechtel, in 1939 CO from 1. Platoon with 2. Kompanie from SS-Heimwehr 'Danzig' is identical to
SS-Obersturmführer(since 21-06-1944 SS-Hstuf)Christian Prechtel.

Steve, thanks for the extra info about Wiens. Had most of it but not his precise promotiondate to SS-Hstuf. (I only knew April 1939) and not the fact that he received the Danziger Kreuz.

Greetings, Mike
