So he's just a DKiG recipient then? Do you know his two first names?


Hi Fangio,
This is Hans-Roland Fröbel
DoB : 03/10/21
Last rank : Hptm.
EK1 : 24/02/43
DKiG : 01/06/43 as Oblt. Schw. Flak-Abt. 157
RK : (not recognized) 26/04/45 as Hptm . Flak-Kampfgruppe 287
He would also have been credited with 6 Panzervernichtungsabzeichen (TDB)
Regards
Denis

Denis,

Fröbel is not at all mentioned in the Veit Scherzer book as a KC-holder, neither in a positive sense nor in negative.

Hi Dieter
I know that but I just responded to Fangio. As Fröbel is not even listed in Fellgiebel, there is really few chance that he can be listed in Scherzer.
Information about him comes from the first volume of the KC holders of the Flak published by Biblio verlag.
Regards
Denis

the right spelling is the problem: Kollewe

Hello,

Thanks Dieter for mentioning those names. It would be interesting to count precisely all acknowledged KC holders (both from Scherzer and Fellgiebel).

Regarding names misspelled on Hoffmann RKT postcards, you will find many mistakes on the Hoffmann caption :
Ihlefeldt instead of Ihlefeld
Phillips instead of (Hans) Philipp
Marsaeille instead of Marseille
Trautloff instead of Trautloft
Collewe instead of Kollewe
Halm instead of (Günther) Hahn
Kretschmar instead of Kretzschmar
Frhrr. v. Funk instead of Frhrr. v. Funck
Voigtberger instead of Voigtsberger
Kluge instead of (Bernd) Klug
Chevalier instead of (Kurt) von der Chevallerie
Rudorfer instead of Rudorffer
Schwendtner instead of Schwender
Scholz instead of (Klaus) Scholtz

Besides, there is also one other name misspelled in the Hoffmann sery which has generated a misidentification : according to the caption, a card depicts a Major Böhme. This is in fact Major Hans Böhmer (RK 10/09/43 as Rittm. A.Abt. 238). And to conclude, another card shows a true mistake : the RKT is identified by the caption as being Karl Ketterer. This is in fact Josef Schreiber (later Eichenlaubträger).

Denis

He is listed in the Patzwall's book but not listed in the Scherzer's one dealing with DKiG holders of the Luftwaffe.
