    Ade-
    Great thread. Raymond identified the owner of a SS dagger that I owned. I had similar problems identifying him. Turns out that he did not become an officer until the mid war years. An early member with a 15000 series SS membership number, he spent some time in the pre-war army. As he was a little old for combat duty, eventually, he was promoted to Untersturmfuhrer. Mike from Westmorland Reserach also came up with a lot of information on him. He was like your man, a behind the lines administrator with no combat awards. I will post a thread on my dagger in the future.

    I found your blog online about your research...I was wondering if you could offer some advice. My mother was a "Lebensborn" and never knew her father. A researcher in Germany found a file on her father with some information, but I was hoping to find more elsewhere. He was an Hauptsturmfeuhrer with the SS Panzergrenadiers Reg 6 and died in Ssorokowka Russia....You've mentioned the Bundesarchive, Rusha and US archives...I am really a novice, so any help is appreciated. Thank you, romi

    Hi Romi, you really need to contact Mike here:

    WESTMORELAND RESEARCH

    He does very good work from files held in the USA at the National Archive. These archives may well contain his Rusha files which will give his family background.

    Cheers, Ade.
