Gestapo officers

The officers and organisational data in this post relates to the BdS Verona, 1944-1945.

In fact Kranebitter was Leiter IV and Schwinghammer his deputy.

I know, the posting is very old, but:

SS Hauptsturmführer Franz Schwinghammer

After the war POW in Naples, London District Cage, Berenchurch Hall (Colchester) and Fornham Park (Bury St. Edmunds). POW 209166. Returned to Austria in 1948.

Who knows more about him or who knows, which sources would provide more informations?
