Ehrenblattspange Oberleutnant Kurt Schwerdt

Post by RalfAnton62 » 31 Dec 2003 21:38

I work on the memoiers of Kurt Schwerdt, who is in age of 84 years. His own memory has lacked in the years. He is possibile the only one german officer with no hands.

For this I search now any additional information on the following points of Interest:

A) On 5. of March 1945 Oberleutnant Kurt Schwerdt received the Roll of Honour Clasp. Any more Details ?

B) Photos ? Copy of Roll of Honour Clasp for this date ?

C) Kurt was a few Month in the "Infanterieschule Döberitz" under command of Oberst Berger (the later General) did anyone have Photos of Lothar Berger out of the time when he was CO of the Infanterieschule Döberitz ?

D) In April 45 Kurt was nominate for the KC by his last commander Oberst Arthur Jüttner. Did anyone have further details ?

Also the following officer: Albert; sorry I have no Lastname. Kurt mentioned, that he earns later the Knights Cross (?)...

In one of his fieldpostletters to Kurt, dated 4th Sept. 1941, he writes, that he lead one week the sevent and after returning of Lt. Birkeloh (?) he take over the 11th Company of Regt.66 / 13th Div.

Has some one of you any idea who this Albert could be ?

Perhaps someone has more detailed infos about the 66th Regt.

Please try to help, Help is needed so much...

Any help would be appreciate.
