Semenov
Shandruk arrived to division with own candidate on new commander gen. Mychajlo Krat, however Germans not they agreed oneself on change command on Ukrainian. Shandruk never alone the commander of division did not want to be because was commander UNA. My source book P. Shandruk, Arms of valor and many Ukrainian publications.

Great list, I have few notes though:

Bronislav Vladislavovich KAMINSKY (16/06/1899-28/08/1944) – Russian

- Kaminsky passed himself as a Volksdeutsche (being of Polish father and of German mother)

Ivan ROGOSAROW (¿-09/05/1945) – Bulgarian

- Bulgarian SS regiment numbered only few hundreds, I am curious as to why this individual held such high rank?


In which units did these individuals served?

Viktor MALETS (01/10/1894-¿) – Ukranian
Jaroslau LITVIN (13/04/1901-¿/04/1945) – Ukranian
Josef BLAZEVIK (24/03/1905-¿) – Czech
Myhailo FREITHARIV – Ukranian
Elisei NAWRODZKYJ (06/06/1902-¿) – Ukranian

Thank you both for the answers. I am curious though, if this Ostubaf. is German, should he not have any German awards by this point? Take into consideration his age and rank - he should have at least some German awards. That is why I was thinking that the lack of awards would indicate him as Ukrainian. Also note that he is wearing a lion tab and not SS runes.

Hello, couple of Estonians:
Juhan Vermet: died 050466
Harald Riipalu, not Haralt

This info can be found e.g. here:
http://www.okupatsioon.ee/nimekirjad/ra ... eimid.html
Form the navigation frame in the left you can click Eesti Vabariigi Kaadriohvitseride saatus (The Fates of the professional army officers of the Estonian army) From the next page you can search for an officer according to the first letter of his last name. Here you will find the dates of birth and death for most of the Estonians (if not all) in your list.

regards,
Tapani K.
