He was the only officer to reach the Tannenberg-Stellung after the 48th regiment had been trapped and annihilated. Several other officers survived this tragedy, but they only returned to The Netherlands in the fifties.

What about Friedrich Tröger, Chef d. Stabs-Kp./48 ? He was among the officers which were used to rebuild the regiment during the fall of 1944.
Charles, Tröger was transferred to "GS" in November 1944, from SS-TIR-3. His KG committed the Podgaje Massacre in January 1945. Tröger survived the war, and died in 1980.
