Article about: by davesap250 If they make All quiet on the Western Front again I hope they do a proper job on it. I see Peter Jackson has put on hold the re-make of the Dambusters. Apparantly it has a \\$30,

    I missed that one. Only watched it the first time around in the 70's!

    One point to bear in mind: FJ wore branch of service waffenfarbe. An FJ Pioneer would wear black tabs....

    But you were right Ade they are dark green tabs not black.
    It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.

    The FJ did not serve at Stalingrad though? They were only on the Eastern Front for a short time ?

    I may be wrong

    The one Fallschirmjger unit that participated in the Battle for Stalingrad, and as such totally annihilated, was a company strength unit armed with 2 cm Flak, (5 cm Pak?) and MG's, namely the 4./Fallschirm-FlaMG.Btl. Consisting of 5 officers and 230 NCO's and Jgers, it was under the command of a Hauptmann Maurer. The Battalion was trained at Quedlingburg in the sommer of 1942 and earmarked for an air transport and Sprungeinsatz in the Caucasus. The 4. Kompanie (Maurer) were flown, not to the Kertsch Peninsula as planned, but 500 km north east and landed neqar the river Don. Here it was integrated in Heer formations of the 6. Armee (unknown Division though) heading for Stalingrad. Bu mid-oktober was half of the company strengt KIA and/or wounded as was all the 5 officers. Oberleutnant Kemnitz was heavily wounded. There's no detailed information about the combat deeds and fate of this FJ Kompanie in Stalingrad after November 19, 1942.

    Source for this informations has been Hans-Martin Stimpel's "Die deutsche Fallschirmtruppe 1942-1945: Einstze auf Kriegsschaupltzen im Osten und Westen" (2001).

    If it's the same guy as in the episode I'm watching now He is decorated up to the hilt but wears a Heer Nahkampfspange in Gold. I don't know if this is possible or if any were awarded to Luftwaffe personnel?

    Anybody ever watched 08/15? it's a three part film lasting nearly five hours in total, i watched part three last night which is set in 1945, every single German soldier was still wearing knobelbecher boots (not impossible but unlikely) nobody was wearing ankle boots and "retreat gaiters". Yep i know i'm the king of the nit pickers!..
