2 Kompanie, schwere Panzer Abteilung 502!

Post by Ian Jewison » 06 May 2002 20:51

Gentlemen,
This is my first post as I was unaware of this site.....so far very impressed!
Hopefully someone may be able to help me out? I am looking for information of "Kompanien Führer und Chef" of 2 Kp., s.Pz.Abt. 502, from 43 to the end.
Obviously famous names are:
Oberleutnant d.R. Otto Carius EL as Leutnant u. Führer 2./schw.Pz.Abt. 502.
Leutnant Adolf Rinke RK as Leutnant u. Führer 2./schw.Pz.Abt. 502.
I know of an Oberleutnant von Schiller (1943) but nothing more.
Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Cheers, Ian :D

Gents,
Thank you for the welcome.
Christoph, I think we corresponded some time ago on another forum...I recognise your name but I have since changed email account as I lost 5 years worth of archive!
Thanks for the link Michael, I did check this one already.
Using various search engines I found Commanders of the unit, RKT and areas of operation but unfortunately not Kp. Fhr./Chef.
Otto Carius' book apparently details some of what I am after but this is now out of print.

Cheers, Ian

Hi Andy,
The avatar is from a kid's program my son watches....I quite like it myself to be honest!! For your interest it is called "Yoho Ahoy" and this little chap is called "Poop"!:D
Sorry to upset you but I am a Yorshireman living in Cheshire! :aliengray

Well we all have our crosses to bear, and being a Tyke isn't that bad :wink:

Where abouts in Cheshire?
