    Hi,

    Hope some one has an idea about what Militics means? military post?
    I only know this was sent from an SS mountain unit in Finland, after they turned on the Germans, October 1944.

    Hi Neil, Happy New Year to you!

    All I can give you is the details for the Feldpost number. As you will already know he was part of "Nord":

    (Mobilmachung-1.1.1940) 14. Reserve-Vorpostenboote d. B. S.O.,

    (28.4.1940-14.9.1940) gestrichen,

    (19.7.1941-14.2.1942) Stab I Gebirgs-Artillerie-Regiment SS-Division Nord.

    (31.7.1942-9.2.1943) Stab I, Stabsbatterie I u. 1.-3. Batterie Gebirgs-Artillerie-Regiment SS-Gebirgs-Division Nord.

    (10.2.1943-23.8.1943) Stab I, Stabsbatterie I u. 1.-3. Batterie SS-Gebirgs-Artillerie-Regiment (Nord),

    Hi,

    This letter falls under the "Lapland War"? and was this feldpost sent to an army unit too?

    Here is a scan map of Batschka, was possibly once Hungarian?
    Might not have been Balschka?

    Same thing happened to me Neil. I had a train ticket for an SS officer that had been in my collection for ten years and I didn't know much about it. I put it on this forum and within 12 hours, I had the guys name, where he served, that he survived the war, and was buried in England compliments of Paul E. I must add. I love this forum. So much information to learn and so little time. Jay
