Hello ansata1976

Ok, thanks for the fast respond.
Maybe I should have expressed myself better. I am more of a specialist for the German gendarmerie in the Lublin district.
I also want to write a book on the subject later. I have evaluated many sources so far.
The information comes from:
Kommandobefehle, later Besondere Anordnungen des KdGend Lublin 1940-1944
Various personnel files, Verleihungsvorschläge and postwar trials of gendarmes etc.

Robert GOLKE
früher Hilfspolizist (HiPo), später in die Gendarmerie übernommen, Rang: Rottwachtmeister d.Gend., Heimatdienststelle: Reg.-Präs. Hohensalza
00.06.1940 Angehöriger der I. Gendarmerie-Hauptmannschaft Lublin
mindestens vom 19.02.1942 - 15.11.1943 beim Gendarmerie-Posten Tyszowce tätig

Christian WILD
23.09.1905 geboren in Koprki, Kreis Warschau
Rang: Oberwachtmeister d.HiPo
mindestens vom 21.04.1942 – 30.11.1943 beim Gendarmerie-Posten Lublin tätig
22.10.1943 beim Einsatz gegen Banditen im Walde Radawiec-Tereszyn, Gemeinde Konopnica, durch Daumendurchschuss verwundet

Do you have information about the trial of Robert Golke?

Do you know more names of Gendarms sentenced in Poland? And the outcome of the trials?
