4. Flakdivision

Post by ruine13 » 27 Dec 2010 14:19

Some (unfortunately undated) shots from a DVD. The guy with the camera is said to be the leader of the 4. Flakdivision. It could be Gerhard Hoffmann, but I only found one picture of him and I'm not sure.

1. August 1939 Generalmajor Maximilian von Renz (as Luftverteidigungskommando Düsseldorf )

1. September 1941 General Gerhard Hoffmann

5. März 1942 Generalleutnant Johannes Hintz

26. Februar 1944 Generalleutnant Ludwig Schilffarth

5. November 1944 Oberst Max Hecht

Any ideas?

Best regards

Maybe Hoffmann is the hidden person at left in the first pic, but the guy(s) with the camera is/are never the Kdr. 4. Flak-Division - see his Kragenspiegel/collar patches !

Not v Renz's hair .. there are pics of him without cap. The man looked more like an Oberst than a Gen d Flak. So could be the kmdr of Flak Rgt 4, 14, 24 or 44?
