Hello Juanjo,

I already had the info on Arseni Korp, but Andres Korp should be a different person according the
following: Waffen-Obersturmführer Andres Korp (wounded in the battle and drowned in 22.09.44 by
russian air raid to hospital-ship “Moero”).

I did found this info on Feldgrau.net, there was a large piece about 20. Waffen-Division and the source
seems to be pretty reliable.

Mike
