Hej Norge,
Duosterförde should be spelled as "Duistervoorde". It might help with the search.
Also Verhamme would be Belgian, not Dutch, because Gent is Belgium.

Information about "Nordland" is always welcomed by me, so thank you for sharing this!

Hi Ron!

It was spelled the way I wrote it here in the german documents, but thanks for notifying me. I can asure you that our friends in Finland has a bigger issue with the germans mispelling their names...........By the way, I put the man from Gent here as I found him among the others, but yes Gent is in Belgium.

I have to check the other units as I can remember dutch soldiers was scattered throughout the whole Korps.

SS-Oscha. Hendrik van den Bremt later attended the 18.Führerbewerber-Lehrg. (1.8.-12.10.1944) and the 18.Kriegs-Junker-Lehrg. (1.11.1944-30.3.1945) on the SS-Junkerschule Tölz. And was promoted to SS-Standartenoberjunker. Later send (back) to the SS-Pz.Gren.Ausb.u.Ers.Btl.5 (Unter Versetzung zu SS-Gren.Ausb.u.Ers.Kp.27) 30.3-16.4.1945.

Hi

Some additional information on the dutch Soldiers in the lists you posted:

Peter Zaman, 29.05.1924, Clinge: he attended the 14.Kriegsjunkerlehrgang at Bad Tölz, but failed the Zwischenprüfung. he then was transferred to the SSPzPioBtl 11

Kruys Gerardus, 09.08.1892, Den Helder. He was an Hstuf not an Ustuf.

Do you have some more information on the SS Frontarbeiterbrigade , such as organization, Officers ?

Best regards

Nico

Hi,

It does not matter on the SS-Frontarbeiterbrigade, this is a very difficult subject.

you gave in one of your posts:
van PUTTEN, Wybe 19.03.20 Hilvershum, Uscha, 6. Cp
He was awarded the Iron cross 2nd Class as well as the iron Cross 1st Class.

December 1944 he was with 6./SSPzGr Ausbildungs und ersatzbataillon in Graz.

If you could post more names of Dutchmen, especially from SSPzAbt 103/503 or even in SSPzAbt 11 HvS I would be most interested.

regards

Nico
