    An interesting card and more interesting unit for Hermann Haslach. I believe there has been other cards posted here for avalanche victims. I have just recently seen another card to a soldier lost in an avalanche.

    The other card, for Johann Krutzenbichler, poses that his death was probably very gruesome. The brutal nature of a hand-to-hand encounter.

    Hi Ben.

    It is an interesting unit and I would hazard a guess that because of his rank, Hermann Haslach was an instructor. It shows how dangerous training for soldiers can be. I totally agree with you about Johann Kreutzenbichler and the way he fell. I would imagine at times that fighting on the eastern front would have resembled that of the trenches during first war world.

    Kind regards,

    Nice cards Will. The avalanche is another unfortunate accident like card we talked about, Alois Ritzer dying on his way home from the front. I wonder if other soldiers died with him in the avalanche. Sad story. The fellow stabbed to death was no doubt gruesome. Are accidents common?

    Thanks Rose. I agree, a very unfortunate accident for sure. Alois Ritzer was a very sad one, especially as he was likely looking forward to being home and safe. I looked for other casualties from the avalanche incident and Hermann appears to be the only one. It is gruesome and as Ben says it shows the brutal nature of hand to hand combat. Accidents are very common and you see all sorts. Accidental gun shots, munitions explosions, crashes, being run over, killed by a horse, alcohol poisoning, drownings, falls etc etc. Illnesses and alignments are a common cause. But I think the strangest one I have seen is where someone died due to a spider bite.

    Kind regards,

    Hi guys,

    Here is my first Death notice. After some questioning on my part, it seems to be a good one.

    Here is the volksbund info, and I believe this to be his casualty card. It doesn't appear to have a backside? Does it say he was shot in the head?

    Cause of death is correct.

    To be fully complete, Vollmeier was a Gefreiter in the 8th company of Gebirgsjäger Regiment 13 and he fell in the Kuban Bridgehead.

    Hans Zinser was not recovered during our re-interment activities. The planned transfer to the collective cemetery in Sewastopol - Gontscharnoje Ukraine was, therefore, unfortunately not possible. His name will be recorded in the cemetery's memorial book.

    I found one more casualty from the incident.

    Luftwaffen-Fährenflotille I

    Formed 2.42 in Constanza from parts of Flak-Abteilung 505, Fähren-Ausbildungs- und Ergänzungs-Abteilung and Sonderkommando Siebel, with 12 Siebel ferries and 5 or 6 Infanterie-Transporter (I-boote), and was subordinated to Luftwaffen-Nachschubstab Rumänien.

    In Spring 1942 moved to Otschakow and later to Nikolayev. From 15.6.42 transported by rail from Nikolayev to Kertsch (Asow Meer). Main duties included transport of supplies over the Kertsch strait.

    In 5.43 disbanded, and was absorbed by the Navy's 3rd Landungs-Flotille (as the 4th Group).

    The following ships are known to have served with Luftwaffen-Fährenflotille I:

    Siebel ferries: SF111, SF114 - 123, SF145
    I-Transporter: I-O-80, I-O-81, I-O-84, I-O-106, and 2 others

    3 losses are known:

    One mined off Jeisk 11.7.42
    One mined off Jeisk 10.8.42
    One lost off Mariupol 16.8.42

    Two of these losses were SF119 and SF123.

    Luftwaffen-Fährenflotillen -

    5 landing/transport flotillas were formed by the Luftwaffe during World War 2, and used mainly Siebel ferries and Infanterie-Transporter, both designed by the Luftwaffe. They were mainly used for transport duties, especially between Sicily and Tunisia.

    The Infanterie-Transporter were self-propelled barges mainly built in Holland and Belgium. They could carry about 7 tons or 40 combat troops, and were armed with light MGs. Variants include hospital and repair barges.

    The Siebel ferry were built at many small yards in Germany, Holland, Belgium and France. They could carry about 60-80 tons, and were armed with light MGs and later a 37mm gun. Many variants were built: AA/Artillery ferries with 88mm guns, hospital ferries and repair ferries.

    Hi All,

    Here is the Sterbebild from SS-Sturmmann Alfred Hintersteiniger. There is a minimum of information on this one, just the Alfred met his fate at the invasion front and lost his young life at the age of just 19 years old. Alfred looks to be depicted in a double breasted SS Panzerjacke / wrapper?

    I wonder if there is some more information to be found? ( I almost automatically typed Willmore after this question , but I do not take all the help for granted! I am grateful for all the trouble you and several other members go through every time!)

    I assume that if Alfred indeed was a member of an SS Panzer Division, there are a few possibilities? Leibstandarte, Das Reich, Hohenstaufen, Frundsberg, Hitlerjugend, Götz von Berlichingen and the 101st and 102nd SS Heavy Panzer Battalions? I am not a human WW2 database; I literally shut my e-reader 2 hours ago, finishing 'Michael Wittmann & the Waffen SS Tiger Commanders of the Leibstandarte in WWII' Great read, recommended!
