Wolff was not "reaktiviert" in August 1939, he was placed z.V.

"Ich verleihe [...] das Recht zum Führen der Dienstgradbezeichnung 'Oberstleutnant a.D.' den Majoren der Reserve [...] von Wolff (Köslin) des Infanterieregiments 94. Die Genannten scheiden gleichzeitig mit dem Recht zum Tragen der Uniform der Reserveoffiziere ihrer bisherigen Regimenter mit den für Verabschiedete vorgeschriebenen Abzeichen aus dem Offizierskorps des Beurlaubtenstandes aus und sind - soweit sie für eine Mob.-Verwendung vorgesehen sind - durch die Wehrkreiskommandos zur Verfügung des Heeres zu stellen." (Tannenberg-Erlass)

xx.03.1919 Charakter als Major
xx.xx.193x Major d.R.
27.08.1939 Oberstleutnant z.V.
Er ist wieder da. Aber auch dieses Mal wird er nicht siegen!

Hello!
Who suceeded Oberst z.V. Horst von WOLFF as commander of the Infanterie-Regiment 478 ?
And who was at that time the commander of the Artillerie-Regiment 258 of the same 258. Infanterie-Division ?
