    I am looking at information regarding Dr. Ignaz Artner KIA 1945 in Berlin... was he a combat officer or other?

    Second name is last name Dierich.

    I am looking at both of these rings Andy at Militarynut has for sale and would like to purchase one that belonged to a true infantry commander, even if not highly decorated.

    Thank you to any and everyone in advance for your help and sharing your knowledge with me.

    p.s. I think Dr. Artners unit was, SS-Pz.-Aufkl.-Abt. 11 What does this mean in nazi jargon? I am in the US army so military organization is not foreign to me.

    I do not know of Dierich being in that unit, only Doc Arten. I have no other information on Dierich other than a last name, hence my utter lack at supplementary information. Cant find him on SS officer lists available to me (limited) etc.
