Karstjäger name

Post by Doudou » 05 Jun 2007 13:46

I read in a French book on the Waffen-SS divisions that the word 'Karstjäger' came from an austro-hungarian jäger unit of the First World War. But I don't found any KuK unit named like this. I think 'Karstjäger' is most probably a name inspired (see that the KuK regiment 'Hoch und Deutschmeister' name was given to the 44. Inf. Div. of the Heer), like Osttiroler-jäger, Alpenjäger...

Best regards

Drapeau Noir was asking about a member of Karstjäger, and not about the origin of their designation. :wink:

There's a misunderstooding:
The name Karstjager's came from the Austro-Ungarn military tradition but NOT from a proper unit: since the most of Karstjagers were enlisted from the ex-AU Empire territories (OZAK,OZAV etc.etc.) and since from these areas a lot of able bodied men use to join the AU army during the WWI the SS thought that the name Karstjager, very similar to Kaiserjager, would had been very likely accepted by these who were still tied with the AU Empire memories and traditions.
The Karstjager divisional shield, called by somebody "Tyrolean Imperial Jager flower" actually confirm that hypothesis even a such kind of symbol wasn't used at all by any of the WWI AU units.

BKA list

Hello Klemen,

Just a small correction about your last list :

Letter K :

Leutnant Wilhelm Kech (1. / Div. Aufkl. Abt 55) - APBB (3.2. ' 45)
and
Leutnant Wilhelm Koch (Div. Aufkl. Abt. 55 , 1. Kosaken Division) - APBB (3.2. ' 45)

It is about the same man. The correct name is Koch.

Cordial greetings.
