Hello Björn,

It must be someone after Vogt who was commander over the "Norge"
Because what I know he (Fritz Vogt) was KIA as Commander over SS-Pz.A.A.5 "Wiking", so who he can be who took over the command from
Fritz Vogt is a little mistory.

Best regards

Georg

SS-Panzer-Grenadier-Ersatz- & Ausbildungs-Bataillon 11

*activated on Friday 30/03/1945
Formed Kampfgruppe Schweitzer
--> SS-PzGrenErs- & AusbBtl 11 (some 800 men)
--> VSBtl 31/191 (some 300 men)
--> Escadron of 3. KavDiv (some 120 men)
no a/a guns; no a/t guns; no artillery; some 8,1 cm & 12 cm mortars


# counterattack on RECHNITZ

area of fighting: RECHNITZ - SCHACHENDORF - UNTERSCHÜTZEN - HIRSCHENSTEIN - GLASHÜTTE - SCHÖNAU - RAURIEGEL - SCHLAINING - ALT SCHLAINING - SANKT MARTIN - DRUMLING - JOSEFSBERG - OBERWART.

SS-PzGrenErs- & AusbBtl 11:
-->CO: SS-Stubaf Willi Schweitzer heavy wounded on neck
----> SS-Ustuf Hans Roller took over command

1./SS-PzGrenAusb- & ErsBtl 11:
-->CO: SS-Ostuf d.R. Hans Alf

2./SS-PzGrenAusb- & ErsBtl 11:
-->CO: SS-Ustuf or Ostuf Willi Wagner

3./SS-PzGrenAusb- & ErsBtl 11:
-->CO: SS-Ustuf Erich Depke

4./SS-PzGrenAusb- & ErsBtl 11:
-->CO: SS-Ostuf Stephan Lellinger

5./SS-PzGrenAusb- & ErsBtl 11:
-->CO: SS-Ustuf Stefan Lenzmoser

6./SS-PzGrenAusb- & ErsBtl 11:
-->CO: Ostuf Peter Pongraz


Of the 800 men 600 were KIA or WIA during the next 10 days.
The SS-PzGrenErs- & AusbBtl 11 gathered at the Castle GRAFENDORF.
Some 150 men were there, additional 100 men arrived there during the next days.
The SS-PzGrenErs- & AusbBtl 11 was replenished and newly formed in the area of HARTBERG, and attached to Arko 3 (CO: Oberst Semmer)
The SS.PzGrenErs- & AusbBtl 11 had a strength of 400 men again.

Why SS-Ustuf Hans Roller took over the command of the SS-PzGrenErs- & AusbBtl 11, I don't know.
Although at least SS-Ostuf Peter Pongraz and two other officers were at GRAFENDORF and HARTBERG.



MfG Michi

Stubaf. Barth replaced Vogt in early March and in April Vogt's former adjutant and 1st company commander Ostuf. Radtke took over the command of the remnants of the battalion.

Hello again,

I have to make a correction,
SS-Ostuf Mogens Schwarck is incorrect
his real name is Mogens Schwarz (Dane)
Schwarck served in the 5. Kp.
Btw. Heckmüller of 2 Kp. was friend with Himmler
and had a very low SS Nr. (just over 2000).

Best regards,

Georg

This is all I have right now. Sorry for the rather lengthy post. I figured it would be just as long, if not longer, if I put it post by post so here we are :)
Questions, addiotions, corrections, curses etc. etc. are all equally welcome.

This thread is very nice also:

Plus various other pages from the net, some no longer live others I have forgetten, and books. As soon as I remember I'll add them here instead of this stupid text.

This division was formed 8th February 1943 from Dutch, Norwegian and Danish volunteers as well as German units
i think they trained in Croatia .OnSeptember 1943 the division conducted anti-partisan warfare in Croatia.
it was transferred to the northern part of the eastern front and fought at Narva.With the some other wss forgein volunteers

In 1944 it was transferred to III. SS-germanische-Panzer-Korps and fought in Kurland. Parts of the division was evacuated by ship from Libau to Pomorania in Poland. The division participated in heavy fighting around the area of Gdansk, Szczecin and Stargard.

22 March 1945 the recon battalion of the division was strengthened with some members of the "British Frei Korps".

Fought on the Oder front and later in Berlin (the Neukölln, Tempelhof and Charlottenburg districts). Parts of the division defended positions around the Reichskansellei.

The panzer abteilung Herman von Salza had some king tiger tanks

What was his final rank and name? It would also be great if you could provide the date when he won the award. Does anyone have the list of all the DKiG holders in the division?
