Hi

Sorry to go off at a tangent... I am looking for records of a German officer named Kapusta who served in Normandy on the atlantic wall area and I only have his name....Hubert or Helmut KAPUSTA - I see that your document above mentioned the name - as it is an unusual name could it be the same man. He "could" have also been an SS officer I dont know.
You wrote:....
The chief of an economic part - lieutenant Kapusta
(Assistant - under the lieutenant Virt).
....
He could also have been involved in handling the regional payroll for the area which may fit with the financial aspect of the above.
Many thanks for any help with this.
I am also looking for Helmut Henning who was sent to Canada as a prisoner and Captain Weneger.
All or any information would be most helpful.

Thanks.

dando, I don't sure, but I think you not right. The his rank - poruchik is specified in the book. This rank was used in the Russian Imperial Army and could be nominated to the Russian emigrants. Result, please, more detailed information on your interest in this man. Whether could he (or his parents) to be the emigrants from Russia?

Best.

The unit was also known as Sondereinheit K. According to Semenov's link posted above, it was named after Stubaf.Kurek from Operation Zeppelin.
