At last, Horst v Wolff

Post by Elwyn W » 19 Oct 2007 02:17

Well, you kind of live for these days. Ebay has a bunch of pics from a formation associated with v Assmann, His wife was mentioned at the back of a few pics. They were about Assmann in 1943 as Kmdr of IR 478, 258 Div.

Now I see this ...... Obst Wolff, PLM, 1941, so finally we nailed him. :P :P :P :P

Cheers
Freiherr

I just found some more images of von Wolff. Actually one is the same as posted by Freiherr but the quality is better.
All the pics were posted by Christophe "Deruelle" from http://gmic.co.uk
