    It denotes the soldier's 'occupation'- E is 'supplementary training in Marineartillerie'

    I just add that E comes from service called Ergänzungs-Marine-Artillerist and translation is like Matt L wrote above.

    Whoops- yeah, I should have put in the German too... usually do; must have not had enough coffee yet when I wrote it LOL

    Höidal has it written though as 'Ergänzungsausbildung Marineartillerie', which is really six of one, half dozen of the other compared to what Stacez wrote- I don't know whether one is a formal documented term or if both were used.

    Hey Matt, thanks again. Wish I could find both of Jean H's books here in the UK, Finding former POW camps and digging up this stuff is turning into an obsession lol

    Is the second edition out of print? I have the first, and ordered mine directly from the publisher since it is probably a bit too specific and doubtless not done in huge print runs to find at a book dealer's place. Really they're only of limited use anyway- a few useful pictures for beginners, and the various lists are good, but I don't know if I'd say they're truly worth the cost; not when you can always ask questions in places like this and get the answers easily enough
