Hello, Halfdan S.

According to Toeche-Mittler (Musikmeister Ahlers, p. 138 and p. 130), Hans Borghoff was born in 1905 and served as Obermusikmeister in:
- Infanterie-Regiment 64 (in Soest and in the field, 1939-1942) * the regiment belonged to the 16th Infantry Division
- 16. Panzer-Division (in the field, 1942-1944) * it's the same division as the previous one, only converted to an armoured unit
- Wachregiment "Großdeutschland" (in Berlin, 10 Nov. 1944 - end of the war)

You can find a photo of him here: viewtopic.php?f=81&t=217440&start=15#p2286614

Hope this helps! :)

Cheers,
Ivan

Here is also a short story about Borghoff's march "Panzergrenadierregiment 64 greift an" (see p. 5, middle column).
