Looking for Fallschirmjäger Aufklarung Abteilung 12 POW records

Post by Julfr » 14 Jan 2020 17:36

Hi guys,

An old post of the forum made reference to the Nara archives containing the POW records of Fallschirm.Aufklarung.Abt.12. I am currently trying to reach informations about this unit to synthesize the real part of what can be known about this uncommon unit.

The previous thread contains the Nara datas on Pow from RG165 files. I hope someone could post them here too because they were delete from the old post.

In addition, do not hesitate to post informations if you have some about this unit.

Here is the real OOB of this unit according to Panzerwrecks and Simon Trew researchs:

Stab Hptm. Gottsche, with 1x 6×6 ex-Italian armoured car and 3x ex-Italian B4 tanks.
1st Kp Lt v Konitz, with several Pkw and Lkw, 3x half-tracks (possibly Kettenkrad), 2x 8cm mortars and a 8,8 cm Puppchen
2nd Kp Lt Runge, same as 1st Kp
3rd Kp Lt Tereus, same as 1st Kp
4th Kp Lt ? 4x 2cm flak guns plus MG’s
5th Kp Lt Ilig, Schwere Kp with 1x 12cm Mortar, 2x Pak 40, 6xMGs, 12 Lkw
6th Kp Lt Lanefeld, Vors Kp with 20-30 Lkw

Thank you

Regards
