One correction on the mainlist:

SS-Ostuf Hermann Lange killed in 1942 was after his death promoted to SS-Hstuf
Before he came to SS-Stug.Abt. 5 he served in SS-Art.Rgt 5
and before that SS-Art.Rgt.1 LAH
He started his career in the SS in SS-Rgt. "Germania" and he attended the SS-Junkerschule Tölz.

Best regards,

Georg

Hello Georg,

Thanks for these names, have to look them up to see if I have them somewhere.
It always can happen that I already have them but that I didn't know they served in 'Wiking' as well.

So whenever I've some time to work on this it will be the first thing I'll do.
Great to see that there's still life in this thread and new info is of course always welcome.

Greetings,
Mike
