SS-Begleitkommando" Der Führer"

Post by coburg22 » 20 Oct 2006 19:40

Does anybody have a list of members of the SS-Begleitkommando "Der Führer"
that were assigned to protect Hitler? Ihave the usual names from Peter Hoffmann's
book but was looking for others which is not easy.
I think it would make a nice book if someone was able to write about members of
the SS-BK and R.S.D.(I have 160 names so far).
Thank You for any assistance.

Hello!

I've got a unit called Begleitkommando des Führers in my lists, in 1945 commanded by SS-Stubaf. Artur Klingemeier (KIA May 1 1945). The unit fought in the battle of Berlin.
But nothing more I'm afraid...

Panzerschreck,

Thank you for your reply. I am sure members of the SS-BK took part in the battle of Berlin
especially since many were seasoned vets and were associated with the LAH.

Peter,

Thank you very much. These names are new to me except for Meyer. I have most details on the ones I have listed above at least as far as the better known personalities are concerned so any new research and additional details are much appreciated. I am hoping to strike gold at the NARA this summer and if I find anything, I will be sure to share it with fellow forum members. It's too bad everyone from the BK are either past away or too old to communicate, even Misch is 90 and he was only an NCO at the time.

Best Regards,

James

Post subject: SS-BK

Looking for info on

Willy Herzberger - SS# and rank as Kdr. SS-BK - any later transfer ?

and

Adolf Dirr - SS# and rank - and position in the early SS-BK - any later transfer ?

also

Kommandeur SS-BK
11.04.1933. - 15.06.1934. - (SS-?) Kurt Gildisch SS# 13 138 - (SS-Stuf. 01.07.1933.- 1934 DAL so apparently still an NCO?) - is this correct or are his dates as Kdr. wrong?

any info appreciated
Brian

Hello Brian,

Willy Herzberger
SS-Sturmhauptfuhrer at time of assuming Command of SSBK.
Partei: 420769
SS: 4995

Adolf Dirr
Deputy under Gesche I believe and later DAL's show his assignment to the LSSAH but by that time the Leibstandarte was parent unit of the SSBK.
Partei: 125997
SS: 54958

Kurt Gildisch
Command dates you have listed are correct as a SS-Sturmfuhrer u. Kdr.
1935 DAL shows his assignment to Abschnitte II.
He does not appear in the 1937 DAL so he must have left the SS prior to this date.
SS-Sturmfuhrer: 01.07.33
SS-Obersturmfuhrer: 01.09.33
SS-Hauptsturmfuhrer: 09.11.33
SS-Sturmbannfuhrer: 04.07.34 / promoted for his part in June 30. 1934

Best,

James
