Leo von der Recke and Georg Möhlmeyer

Post by Mikedc » 30 Oct 2006 19:53

Hello folks,

I hope somebody can tell me a bit more about the following men, especially when they're SS-officers. If they're just SS-NCO's I don't the info that hard.

Leo von der Recke.
Should have served with SK 11a under Paul Zapp.
In 1970 sentenced to 13 years in prison.

Georg Möhlmeyer.
Should have served with SK 11a under Paul Zapp.
In 1970 his case was put aside.


Thanks,
Mike

TKführer = Teilkommandoführer

(it does not translate easily or with a true meaning in English)

Hello Steve,

Thanks for the info on Von der Recke and Möhlmeyer.
Especially Möhlmeyer is very interesting for me because he was an officer,
don't deal with NCO's so much.

But everything I get is always much appreciated.
So thanks again for sharing.

And indeed, Teilkommandoführer translating to good English is not so easy.


Greetings,
Mike

Thanks Steve.

Perhaps it could be translated with "sub-command leader".

Was he maybe related to SS-Ustuf Karl Georg Wilhelm Mathias Louis von der Recke?? Born on 13-10-1918 in Riga.

I would be surprised if they were not related but I have no information, one way or the other.
