Hello,

I think Kurt Voß must have belonged to II. / Infanterie-Regiment 17 (31. Infanterie-Division). This regiment was stationed in Eastern Lower Saxony. The second battalion was set up from reservists in Celle (30 kilometers from Hanover) in summer 1939 only. During the Polish campaign Infanterie-Regiment 17 was commanded by Oberst Friedrich-Wilhelm Neumann. 31. Infanterie-Division marched in the wake of 1. Panzer-Division and 4. Panzer-Division from Silesia via Petrikau and Tomaszów Mazowiecki towards Warsaw to participate in the encirclement of the city.

Many thanks for looking him up, nimbuss.

Here's the death notice for Hauptmann Braune-Krickau, saying he belonged to the HQ of a division. The Volksbund database entry for him says he died in Kielce on Sept. 5th, 1939. So the question arises which german divisions had their HQs in the region of Kielce on that date?

the correct form of his family name is Michalik. The promotion to Oberleutnant was a posthumous one obviously. See the death notice below:

Leutnant Willi Zukunft served in an artillery regiment according to his death notice. So the question is which artillery regiment was in or next to Stroniowice near Przemysl [today Storonevychi, Ukraine] on Sept. 14th, 1939?

Hallo Thorsten
There could be troops of only one german division in Kielce on 5.9.39.: 2. leichte Division.

Crolick also writes (on page 38) about Lt. z. See Kapitzki from 1.(M)/Kü.Fl.Gr. 506 KIA on 11.09.1939. His plane was He 114 No. 2543. As source of this information he quotes private correspondence with Björn Hafsten from 21.03.2007.

Björn Hafsten is an author of some publications on Luftwaffe...
Lt. z. S. Kapitzki was not killed, but slighly wounded, same as his pilot Uffz. Nowack, as you can read here: http://forum.12oclockhigh.net/showpost. ... ostcount=5. (note: Crolick was part of that thread on TOCH-Forum!)
