SS-Ustuf. Christian Backer De Reville, true name?

Post by encyclo-collaboration » 30 Oct 2017 21:16

A question for the specialist of Flemish volunteers :
what is the true name of the Ustuf. Christian Backer De Reville.
If we believe Eddy De Bruyne , it was not his true name, but a pseudonym...

He is born the 22th january 1913. POW in june 1940, he enlisted in Sturmbrigade Langemarck (date unknown). Führer-Lehrgang from april to august 1944. Pass to 28. SS-Freiwilligen-Grenadier-Division "Wallonien", as Chief of the 3rd battery of the SS-Artillerie-Abteilung 28 .
Fight only in april 1945, as Zugführer in the 5th company of SS-Regiment 69.
Died 4th may 1945, from his injuries in fight.


Thanks...

Maybe SS-Untersturmführer Philippe Della Faille d’Huyse?

Hello,

On Ancestry there is a Death certificate but it is not on the free section.

Any information about Flemisch in German service (Waffen SS, OT, NSKK, Kriegsmarine, DRK, ...) during WWII is welcome.

At the start of June 1950 the Berlin-West Standesamt were registering the deaths of a number of Belgian born men serving with the Waffen-SS who died in the Endkampf.

What do you mean by Endkampf? Last days of the War? Battle of Berlin?

Hello,


In what way his real name? (if we assume he served with a different name).
If the Germans him only knew under an alias? Than is his death document not the prove of his real name.

Greetings
