For those wishing to search the DRK Missing persons list or accessing the complete Feldpost FPN, please follow these links.

For those interested there are approximately 1432 pages of the complete DRK German Wehrmacht Order of Battle to collect in this series.

I downloaded all pages. I compiled them into a PDF which takes up approximately 340 MB of space. It took me a while.

The only pages missing were the two Volkssturm pages 258 and 259. Fortunately I was able to utilise Georg Tessin 'Verbände und Truppen der deutschen Wehrmacht und der Waffen-SS im Zwelten Weltkrieg 1939 - 1945 Volume 17' to complete the task.

I am in the process of compiling the Feldpost FPN series from this most valuable source. If any one can recommend a superb OCR programme I would appreciate your help.

Welcome to the Online Search of Missing picture lists "VBL" of the German Red Cross Tracing Service [English}

- Here are some hints for successful research in this stock -

For the online search at least one of the following criteria should be known - a Feldpostnummer - the open troops address of fugitives - the storage location (place name) or the warehouse number at disappearance in captivity to search history Step 1 requires the input of the above-mentioned criteria and, in step 2 the necessary information for calling the actual image list

Fieldpost numbers

Fieldpost numbers acted as military ZIP codes. Each unit was assigned a specific Feldpostnummer that had five digits as a rule.
The sometimes preceded by the letters refer inter alia to troops armed forces as M for Marine or L for a Luftgaupostamt. Subsequent letters refer to subordinate units as guide bars or companies, such as B for the 1st Company. When looking into the missing image lists such letters are ignored

Open troops Address

Please note in your entry, that the names of the individual units arranged within the listed Teilstreitkräfte after its first letter and often - not always - listed in abbreviated form are examples:

Abkürzung Ausformulierung

ART REG Artillerie-Regiment
BAU PI BTL Bau-Pionier-Bataillon
FAHR ABT Fahr-Abteilung
GREN RGT Grenadier-Regiment
INF RGT Infanterie-Regiment
KRIEGSLAZ ABT Kriegslazarett-Abteilung
LANDESSCH RGT Landesschützen-Regiment
SAN KP Sanitäts-Kompani
FALLSCH ART REG Faschllschirmspringer-Artillerie-Regiment
FLAK DIV Flak-Division
MAR FLAK ABT Marine-Flak-Abteilung
RAEUMBOOT Räumboot
U-BOOT Unterseeboot


By entering a storage location you to the band stating the missing image list within which the stock number and any sub-camps are then listed

stock numbers

The POW camp of detention powers were numerically ordered by one to four-digit Arabic, in exceptions also by Roman numerals. With their input, you get to Leitverzeichnis, in which the volume number is listed next to the custody country. POW camp often had a central storage management, could be placed under several sub-camps. The numbers of these subcamps were added with an oblique or hyphen Please enter in your search only the one- to four-digit number of the main camp or the camp administration to. Possible side bearings are not included in this search

Willkommen bei der Onlinerecherche der Vermisstenbildlisten "VBL" des DRK-Suchdienstes [Deutsche]

- Hier noch einige Hinweise zur erfolgreichen Recherche in diesem Bestand -

Für die Onlinesuche sollte mindestens eines der folgenden Suchkriterien bekannt sein

- eine Feldpostnummer

- die offene Truppenanschrift des Gesuchten

- der Lagerstandort (Ortsname) oder die Lagernummer bei Verschollenheit in Kriegsgefangenschaft

Zum Suchverlauf

Schritt 1 erfordert die Eingabe eines der oben genannten Suchkriterien und führt in Schritt 2 zu den nötigen Informationen für den Aufruf der eigentlichen Bildliste

Feldpostnummern

Feldpostnummern fungierten als militärische Postleitzahlen. Jeder Einheit war eine bestimmte Feldpostnummer zugeordnet, die in der Regel fünfstellig war.

Die bisweilen vorangestellten Buchstaben beziehen sich u.a. auf Truppenstreitkräfte wie M für die Marine oder L für ein Luftgaupostamt. Nachfolgende Buchstaben verweisen auf untergeordnete Einheiten wie Führungsstäbe oder Kompanien, wie B für die 1. Kompanie. Bei der Suche in den Vermisstenbildlisten bleiben solche Buchstaben unberücksichtigt

Offene Truppenanschrift

Bitte beachten Sie bei Ihrer Eingabe, dass innerhalb der aufgeführten Teilstreitkräfte die Bezeichnungen einzelner Einheiten nach ihrem Anfangsbuchstaben geordnet und häufig – nicht immer - in abgekürzter Form aufgeführt sind

Beispiele:

Abkürzung Ausformulierung

ART REG Artillerie-Regiment
BAU PI BTL Bau-Pionier-Bataillon
FAHR ABT Fahr-Abteilung
GREN RGT Grenadier-Regiment
INF RGT Infanterie-Regiment
KRIEGSLAZ ABT Kriegslazarett-Abteilung
LANDESSCH RGT Landesschützen-Regiment
SAN KP Sanitäts-Kompani
FALLSCH ART REG Faschllschirmspringer-Artillerie-Regiment
FLAK DIV Flak-Division
MAR FLAK ABT Marine-Flak-Abteilung
RAEUMBOOT Räumboot
U-BOOT Unterseeboot
Lagerstandorte

Über die Eingabe eines Lagerstandortes gelangen Sie zur Bandangabe der entsprechenden Vermisstenbildliste innerhalb derer dann auch die Lagernummer und ggf. Nebenlager aufgeführt sind

Lagernummern

Die Kriegsgefangenenlager der Gewahrsamsmächte waren numerisch nach ein- bis vierstelligen arabischen, in Ausnahmen auch nach römischen Ziffern geordnet. Mit ihrer Eingabe gelangen Sie zum Leitverzeichnis, in dem neben dem Gewahrsamsland die Bandangabe aufgeführt ist. Kriegsgefangenenlager hatten häufig eine zentrale Lagerverwaltung, der mehrer Nebenlager unterstellt sein konnten. Die Nummern dieser Nebenlager wurden mit einem Schräg- oder Bindestrich hinzugefügt

Bitte geben Sie bei Ihrer Suche hier nur die ein- bis vierstellige Nummer des Hauptlagers bzw. der Lagerverwaltung an. Angaben zu Nebenlagern bleiben bei dieser Suche unberücksichtigt

Hello Germanicus,
I'm researching the Berlin Volkssturm.
You mention some, for me new/unknown Bns 3/185, 3/216, 3/421 and 3/713 (the last 2 related to the Pichelsdorf Bridge).
As source you post a link to a Russian page.

Peter
