Hello!
A German ship was named by this man in 1930s - and she even managed to survive WW2.

Best regards, Aleks

hi,

OK, time ran out on this one.

The picture shows Chief Petty Officer Wilhelm Heidkamp,who saved the battle cruiser SEYDLITZ in the Doggerbank engagement (January 24, 1915) from exploding by opening the red-hot water cooling system wheels with his bare hands.

a WW II destroyer (Z 21) was named after him.

The thread is declared to be open for the next volunteer.

Does anyone know the identity of the 2. Badisches Grenadier-Regiment Kaiser Wilhelm I. Nr. 110 commander in June 1918? Madlung is the name in the war diary. Looking for more details. Thanks.
