I was informed that my grandfather was in the 2nd. Btn, 18th Inf. Regt. of the Wehrmacht, however, I have just found 2 FPONos 36645D ad 19016D from some of his letters home dated 1940 & 1941
10/5/40 36645D- belongs to StabIII., & 9-12 Komp. 454 Inf. Regt.
25/8/41 19016D- belongs to StabIII., & 9-12 Komp. 586 Inf. Regt.
Were FPOs assigned permenantly, or were they changed on a regular basis? in which case my research just took a serious backwark step!

Feldpost numbers did change, although in my own research (GFP) I found that most of the numbers remained the same throughout the war. Perhaps your relative was temporarily assigned to these units, or it is possibly a mistake in the Feldpost list........

If you check the feldpostnr list being compiled on this site you'll see that the numbers could change during the war.
