Oberstleutnant von Puttkamer

Post by Mitchell » 22 Aug 2007 05:22

Anyone know of a Oberstleutnant von Puttkamer of the 2. Panzer-Division. I think he was killed in March 1945 while defending a bridge on the Enz River at Sinspelt. He was perhaps with Panzergrenadier-Regiment 2?

Not listed by the Volksbund...
But I would be interested in his first name, too. Have him as Oberst in January/February 1945 as Kdr. of PGR 2!

Great 8-)
Thank you!

EDIT: wrote an E-Mail to the Familienverband of the von Puttkamers to get his exact DoD :wink:

Alright, my mistake. The defense at Sinspelt on the Enz River was February 23, 1945. I believe that would be his DoD. Sorry for the confusion, I should have verified my notes first.

Many thanks for clearing up this enigma, Dieter...
I also was looking for this first name for some time now

Cheers,
Charles
