Korvettenkapitän Willy Hölzner

Is there a overview somewhere on the net (or in literature) for the service time to Hölzner (b. 23.08.1902, Crew of 1920) during the war?

Hello,
looks like there are not many information available about him. I found your post while searching for him as well, as I read his name in a list of prisoners.

https://media.digitalarkivet.no/en/view/109422/213
The Norwegian archives digitalised a list with Wehrmacht personnel, being sent to the prison in Akershus by Werhrmacht-courts in Norway.
You can find him under #1992. According to the entry, he was sent to prison on 23.02.1945 for custody, unfortunately not stating the reason. The penalty is "1 J Rangv.", not 100% sure what it means, but I presume that he lost his rank for 1 year. On 11.05.1945 he was sent back to his unit.
His fieldpostnumber was M39450 Z, which covered different units of the Kriegsmarine at the time:
Kommandant der Seeverteidigung Oslo-Fjord (Horten), Marine-Intendanturdienststelle Horten, 3. Kompanie Marine-Nachrichten-Abteilung Oslo, Torpedo-Kommando Horten.

https://www.forum-marinearchiv.de/smf/i ... c=11403.30
The the forum-marineachiv has those information: Hölzner, Willy - Kkapt. (W).01.03.42. - 23.08.1902 Insterburg - Crew of 1920

https://www.forum-der-wehrmacht.de/inde ... lle-horte/
The Forum der Wehrmacht mentions that he lead the Marine-Artilleriezeugamt Horten from 09.11.1943 to 00.06.1945

Hope that helps a bit.

Regards,
Marc

Thanks for the links. He was also stationed with MaZa Kristiansand-Süd.
