-I saw a new Meister title, but I do not know who held the Post. The title was Reichsluftzeugmeister. I presume it was a Luftwaffe title and not an NSDAP title. Does anyone know who held this post?

Hello Pitino!

You mean GENERALLUFTZEUGMEISTER:
This post was subordinated under the Generalinspekteur der Luftwaffe (Erhard Milch). It was founded on February 1st, 1939.
01.02.1939-17.11.1941 Ernst Udet (suicide)
1941-Augst 1944 Erhard Milch
1944 dissolved?

But There was a Reichszeugmeister of the NSDAP. I don't now know who held this post. I'm sorry. But I will look in my notices.

mjolnir,
-Thanks for the info and correcting my title. I wonder why the post was dissolved in 1944? You are correct about the Reichszeugmeister Post. I think I have the correct list for that position on p. 1 of this topic. Richard Buchner held the post and he was succeeded by Wilhelm Helfer.

Hi Pitino,

The post was dissolved when the Reich Ministry for Armaments and War Production took over complete responsibility for aircraft production. The Bundesarchiv has the dissolution date as 29 July 1944.

Best regards,

-Can anyone confirm that Emil Ketterer held the title, Reichssportsärzteleiter? If so, then what were his dates of service in this Post? I am pretty sure that Ketterer resigned from all his offices in (1937) so did he have a succeessor?

-I have a new Leiter title, but I have never seen this man listed as this title holder before. I have a source that lists Dr. Robert Ley as the Reichspersonalleiter!!! Can anyone confirm for me that Ley held this title?

-I think I have come up with a new Meister title, but I am not positive if it was during the Third Reich or after the Third Reich. I have found a man named Herms Niels and he supposedly held the title, Reichsmusikmeister. If anyone can confirm this or debunk it I would really appreciate it!!!!

-I have found a new Meister title!!!! Paul Vollrath served as Reichsknappenmeister from (1927) on. He was also named Bundesleiter der Deutschen Reichsknappenschaft e.V. in (1926). Can anyone tell me exactly what knappen translates to in English? I get scarce!!

-Reichsknappenmeister- (Reich Miners Master)
-(1927- ??? )- Paul Vollrath

-Phil,
-I have seen Speer referred to as the Reichsbaumeister on a number of occassions, but I am unsure if it was ever Officially bestowed on him as a title. Without a serious source to cooberate Speer Officially holding this title I am forced to leave him off my Meister list for now!!!!
