Warsaw 1944 soldiers identification

Post by Gewehr41 » 08 Sep 2019 23:16

Who were these soldiers with Major Ivan Denisovich Frolov and what was their fate.
Some soldiers are also with SS General Reinefarth... were they important soldiers to be in General Staff?

There is now W-Stubaf.d.SS Frolov - typical mistake. In center colonel Kraskovski 209 Schuma Btl.
First from left - of course not relative to V. Putin - typical myth.

So seems that anyway are famous people or at least important in the German counterattacks during the Uprising.
My question is... but the man at the center covered by a Major (seems to be)... is important because is in photos also with Reinefarth. A simple soldier could not stay with commanders but in frontline, perhaps a RONA Sonderfuhrer as dolmetscher?

So in center is colonel Kraskovski, on the right oberleutnant (?) Aktan and 3 unedentified soldiers. they seems to be all officers, apart the soldier coevered by Kraskovski, a translator with Germans I think. So if he was with Reinefarth in a photo, could be a Volksdeutsche in Ukraine or Russia?

I have more informations. The man of panzer unit is Major Kostenko according some sources. The man at his right is Lieutenant Michalczewski.
About the man in the middle, seen with Reinefarth, is probably from Kuban-Kosaken-Reiter-Regiment 3 (so a Russian from Don region).
I discovered why he is always with high ranking officers.
Was adjudant of Colonel Bondarenko but his name is no known.
The man with white Police eagle left him is perhaps Major Sarnow

So on the web are many wrong informations. I see that you know much about RONA. In your opinion, this man, can be really a Rgts. Adjudant?
(always with officers in many pictures)

Hello, I do not think in WAST or NARA rolls are there documents on Kosaken Rgt 3.
Interesting the Polizei officer with Cossacks hat

Re this translator / adjutant (the one perhaps doesnt need to deny the other, as long as he manages all the languages in question. He perhaps studied german on university??).

OK.
On almost all pics he has the cap askew. Quite unmilitary, I would say! In some armies it was custom among the soldiers to have the caps boyishly askew, but would a person in his position then and there carry himself unproperly?? Among officers higher ranking than him?

I mean, does this maybe tells us something about him and or his position??

Stephan - Typical for Cossacks - a hat turned to the side - with Cossack fantasy.
