SS-Untersturmführer Labes

Hey, I am looking information about SS-Untersturmführer Labes.
He was 01.07.42 Leiter, Hauptaussenstelle Pernau (Pärnu), KdS Estland and the same time SD-Erkundungskommando II füher in Pljussa (Russia).

1940, SS-Ustuf. KS Helmut Labes with Stapoleitstelle Danzig/Aussendienststelle Gdynia.
Incidentally, Peter, his SS No. 290052.

I think his father was Kriminalinspektor with Kripoleitstelle Danzig.

I have Helmut Laabs not Labes served in Stapo Danzig and AdS Gdynia but it can be mistake in my source.

The Danzig Gestapo was closely examined by British war crimes investigators between 1945 and 1948. This was part of the largest investigation they carried out for the murderers of the RAF officers who escaped from Stalag III (Sagan) in 1944.
SS-Stubaf KD Erich Graes the Verrteter des Leiter, Kripostelle Danzig in 1944, was extensively interrogated by the British, producing a list of Kripo and Stapo Danzig officials known to him. One was:
"March 1944, KI Labes with Kripoleitstelle Danzig, investigated cases of theft; about 64 years old; 1.79m tall; white hair; blue eyes";
from Puck's list this is probably Ernst Labes.
