This is probably unique!

28.04.1939 mit dem 30.04.1939 aus dem aktiven Wehrdienste entlassen
09.09.1939 im niedrigsten Dienstgrad wieder eingestellt

09.09.1939 Panzerschütze
01.10.1939 Gefreiter
01.12.1939 Unteroffizier
01.03.1940 Feldwebel
01.06.1940 Leutnant d.B.

I really wonder about the background.
Er ist wieder da. Aber auch dieses Mal wird er nicht siegen!

some years ago I used to met a lot vets of sPzAbt 503, who served under Fromme. Fromme was sometimes mentioned as a real front line officer who was perfect for war but did not work in peace. He was much respected but he was obviously a difficult person. One of his problems was alcohol - even during and maybe before the war. I think it was mentioned that he was fired/ or degrade - but I dont remember details - too many years ago.

My small extract comes form some kind of a questionnaire that is in his folder (pre war and Bundeswehr). It was filled in before he joined the new German Bundeswehr - maybe by himself.

Correction: the extract is out of the period "Personalnachweis - Dienstlaufbahn" not the after war questionnaire. I dont know who was responsible for those papers. Today there is a "Personalamt der Bundeswehr" in Köln. Most likely something like that.

I thought about the incident again and I think Alfred Rubbel once mentioned a car accident that leads to his dismissal.
