German KIA Volturno battle

Post by NavyCdo412 » 24 Nov 2021 23:33

Hello, in a British report is recorded that a German Leutnant was killed at Cancello-Arnoni in 13-16 October 1943. Is there a list of 15th Panzergrenadier Division Leutnants killed in that period?

Hello,

Probably a hit in my database could be:
Oberleutnant Helmut Weisske, born 5.3.1913
stellv.Kp.Fhr. 3./Pz.Aufk.Abt.Hermann Göring killed on Oct.15th in Pontaletone artillery stomach and left arm.

Hello,

According to the official records the 15.Pz.GRen.Div. didnt list any officer as KIA in this time. Probably he is not isted or the enemy information is wrong
or has errors.

Probably killed not in the date I gave (I suppose killed in the skirmish), probably fallen days before, begin October for example :?
