Furthermore I've found him in a Befehlsblatt, only there they wrote his name as Biegelmayer.
Befehlsblatt der Sipo und SD Nr. 10-44/Ausgabe A: 31. März 1944:
Der RFSS hat befördert.
Mit wirkung vom 30.1.1944. Zu SS-Stubaf: Ewald Biegelmayer, 272.373, BdS Krakau.
Is there anybody who has promo-dates for Biegelmeyer/Biegelmayer?? I would like to know what his rank was when he served with SD-LA 'Königsberg', when he was with EG II and when he served with Sipo and SD Ausstenstelle in Antwerp.

Dr.Ewald Biegelmeyer was promoted to SS-Ustuf in 1938.
Unfortunately i don't have his promotion dates to Ostuf and Hstuf only
know that when he came to Lublin in 1943 he was already SS-Hstuf.
