    Default Help needed with this unit.

    I have been trying to find out info on a wehrpass I have picked up. In particular 1.Pi.-Minier-Kp. or Pi.-Minier-Kp.821. I am sure that someone on the forum is well versed in such units and can tell me what such units actually did, and maybe even have a feldpost number for the unit. I have done all my usual serches and drawn a blank, but would be delighted if anyone had any info that might help.
    All the best,
    D

    According to the Lexikon der Wehrmacht website, three such units existed, designated as Pionier-Minier-Kompanie 821 through 823.

    Following the disbandment of the Pionier-Bataillone z.b.V., these companies were newly formed in 1942/43.

    Their mission was the construction of subterranean positions and the defense against enemy tunnelling operations. ("Minieren" means "to mine" or "to create underground tunnels".)

    Feldpost-Nummer 11048 was assigned to 1. Pionier-Minier-Kompanie from 27 Jan. 1942 to 14 July 1942 and to Pionier-Minier-Kompanie 821 from 25 Jan. 1943 to 31 July 1943.

    Feldpost numbers: 11000-11999
