Hi!

These are not officers. Both men came from SS-Frw. Legion Norwegen to SS-Pz.Gren.Rgt 23 "NORGE" in 1944. To the left is Alf PETTERSEN and to the right is Olaf LINDBOM who lost an leg on 16.4.42 in Frw. Leg.Norw. Both men surveived the war. Alf fought in Finland in 1940 against the Sovjetunion.

Hi!

This is Olaf THUNESTVEDT from Bergen/Norway, he was within the 1./SS-Pz.Gren.Rgt. 23 "NORGE" and later in February transferred to 10./SS-Pz.Gren.Rgt. 23 "NORGE". He was experienced close-combat spesialist. In 1945 he attended an Unterführerlehrgang at Tr.Üb.Pl. Hammerstein when the unit was transformed into the SS-Kampfgruppe Scheibe. He got his EK I during combat with this unit in Pommern and was KIA around 11.2.45. he was buried in Rosengarten. Today unknown.

Hi there "Regiment Norge" and "Endzeit Jan". I was wondering if you could assist with more info on Olaf Thunesvedt as I believe we are related to him but want to know more.

Many thanks

Olav Thunestvedt is shortly mentioned (with picture, same as above) in the norwegian book De som falt (those KIA), by Erik Veum, page 302. Veum states that Thunsestvedt was KIA in Kappel, Poland, 11.2.1945 and buried in Szcecin (Stettin).

Date/place of birth is 20.03.1921 in Osterøy.

But which Rosengarten??

There were three Rosengarten in Pommern, as far as I know:

- one was part of Altdamm
- one in Kreis Randow
- one in Kreis Stolp

Sorry Jan, I am not sure which Rosengarten, the letter from Denmark did not specify.

Hi, I' m sure Olaf Lindbom is to the right, and the person to the left must be Alf Pettersen. Lindbom is a relative, and looking through old family photos I'm sure that he is sitting to the right. I have asked about the origin of this photo before. Is it from a private collection or a book? I'm interested in more information. Can anyone tell me?

Still confusing me....

No.1 and No.2 are too much west for KGr. Scheibe, No.3 to much Northeast...
