as I do not have a copy of Die Generale des Heeres containing the letter H can anybody please help me out with some kind of christmas present:
I am looking for the date, when GM Ing. Hickmann left his position as head of "Personalabteilung" (Sektion I) of the Austrian Armed Forces to become head of "Abteilung Schwere Waffen" in the "Kriegstechnisches Amt" (Sektion II). I am quite sure it must have been in 1937 or early 1938. At this date the head of the "Abteilung Schwere Waffen" (GM Ing. Walter) consequently became head of the Kriegstechnisches Amt (KTA) and the former head of the KTA (GM Ing. Levnaic-Iwanski von Iwanina) retired.
Anybody please? Thanks in advance.
