Not sure if these battalions designated by name have been shown previously. Volkssturm battalions 'Schulze', 'Rolle', & 'Gorney' are listed as serving with z.b.V.607 Division on the Kurische Nehrung near Memel in January'45 under XXVIII AK.

Dear donwhite

Excellent find. I have downloaded everything German from this amazing website. The Volkssturm battalions 'Schulze', 'Rolle', & 'Gorney' . I noted in my lists the Volkssturm-Bataillones Schulze and Rolle as Schulz and Roller. However I had not discovered 'Gorney'. Well done. Thank you.

Most respectfully

Mark

Hello,
I'm "digging" in the archives since years and never found what I'm looking for. My Grandfather was a member of the "Volkssturm Battalion 95 Stabskompanie" located in 1945 in Koenigsbrueck (approximately 30 miles NE of Dresden). He wrote a "Feldpostbrief" dated January, 27 1945 to his son (my dad). To my knowledge, this Battalion has been shipped to the east front near Finkenherd in March 1945. He never returned home and we still have no place to grieve. I contacted so many agencies and researchers, but no one have any info about this particular battalion.
To my knowledge, why was this particular battalion almost two month in the Koenigsbrueck base? Normally was the Volkssturm Training only a few hours, may days.
Thanks for all info and help.
Here is a discussion from ten years ago on another message board (in German):
https://www.forum-der-wehrmacht.de/inde ... olkssturm/

edit: I see that the person who posted on that forum also posted on page 16 of this thread and is still an active member of the AHF.

A mention of Volkssturm Battalion's 'Mielau' & 'Plohnen' in XXIII AK records. List of armaments is interesting.
