    Default Stug 667 Brigade

    I didn't know if this was the right place to
    post this but I am looking for information
    on Gottwald Stier—30+ Kills (StuG Brigade 667)
    Knight's Cross (date unknown). I think I
    have a couple of pictures of him working
    as a interpreter for the British. It came
    as part of a collection, one of the pictures
    is of German POW's and had the following
    notes with it.

    May 1945, Lauenburg, Germany. Our first task after the war ended was to cope with these German soldiers, 20,000 of them. They had retreated from the Russian Army, but could not cross to the West bank of the Elbe. As they were prisoners of war, we had to control and feed them, before delousing them and arranging transport to take them to POW camps. Lauenburg later became one of the crossing places between the British and Russian Zones, and later between West and East Germany.
    Any information would be appreciated, a photo of him
    would be out of this world!!!

    Cheers

    Thats a shame Paul. On the rear of the photo
    it says Steier - Panzer. by the looks of it
    he looks pretty well decorated, I know the
    picture is not great put can you tell anything
    from the photo? On his tunic pocket he
    has a Cross, along with a oval badge and
    then a smaller circular one, he also has
    a medal ribbon/s above that. On the turned
    over collar of his tunic he has another ribbon
    that looks to be attached to a button.

    Cheers Paul for your help

    Kieron,

    Interestingly enough he is wearing a Black Panzer wrap with grey Sturmgeschutz trousers, he has the EKII ribbon on the wrap lapel and looks like the EKI and another two wards possibly the Panzersturmabzeichen and a wound badge on the left breast of the wrap.

    He isn't wearing a Ritterkreuz !!

    You can tell he has been captured by and is working for the British as he still has all his awards

    He looks a bit old to be Stier whi looks quite youthful in all the photos i have seen of him,

    regards

    Paul

    I know what you are saying about age Paul
    but I have pictures in my collection of men
    that were taken at the begining of the war
    and then six years later and they have aged
    considerably - you only have to imagine the
    horrors these men would have seen. Can you
    recommend a good source of photos?

    Cheers

    He is wearing an enlisted man's belt but it's difficult to see any rank , looks like he might have a Campaign shield on his left arm.
