here's my one and only for last year, an artillery guy who was one of the last ones to be flown out of Stalingrad. I like it most because it has his dogtag and soldbuch as well as his wehrpass. his regiment was destroyed not long after he left

Hi Hofstetter,

Nice pairing you have there.

He definitely wasn't one of the last flown out. He was already in hospital on 26.11.1942 with the flu, where he remained until transported on a hospital train on 19.12.1942. I don't know where Feldlaz. 772 was located, but it's probably safe to say it was deep enough in the rear not to be directly affected by the Soviet counteroffensive. He arrived back in the homeland (Bromberg) on 28.12.1942 and stayed in hospital until 19.03.1943. The pay and furlough pages in the Soldbuch may provide a bit more information.
Interestingly, he was transferred to a reformed Stalingrad unit in December 1944 (Art.Rgt.295), but they sat out the war in Norway and saw no action.

Did he win any medals?

All the best,
Jason

he wasn't in a field hospital until the 26.11.1942 (with hepatitis), by that time Stalingrad had been encircled for 3 days. he wasn't in a proper hospital till 28.12.42. In January his regiment was destroyed. I figured he wasn't flown out till not long before the date he arrived in a proper hospital on the 28.12.42 ? which isn't that long before the airfields were overrun, but whatever the case he was there for a significant portion of the battle and very lucky to escape.

Planes were not involved with his evacuation. See the words "Laz.Zug"? That means hospital train. He left Feldlaz.772 in a train, not a plane. Eleven days on a train back to Germany seems about right, so there's an unbroken timeline from 26.11.1942 until 19.03.1943.

If he was in the Stalingrad pocket – and I don't think he was – it was only for 3 days at the most. The key to solving this is finding the location of Feldlaz.772 in November 1942. It was probably in Stalino (not Stalingrad), but I can't confirm this 100%.

As I wrote earlier, his pay pages in the Soldbuch may provide additional information.

Nevertheless, still an interesting SB/WP set.

Jason

well is does state in his operational page "angriffsschlacht und verteidigung von Stalingrad" 18.8 - 19.12.42 signed off by his Oberleutnant and batterie fuhrer

Not sure if this means that much, but i think this shows he handed his k98 back on the 19.12.42 ???

Just watched a Stalingrad documentary on utube, in part 2 "Battle of Stalingrad, the Kessel"
a wounded German soldier talked of his escape from Stalingrad how he climbed aboard a plane after it dropped supplies, with about 17 others (around the 50min mark).

In part 3 "The Battle of Stalingrad, the Doom" the same soldier talked of how he was transported by train back to Poland (around the 19min mark).

It seems to me that the plane out of the pocket may not always carry a handful of men all the way back to Germany, but probably just back to a closer area behind the lines where they could be transported by train, hence the "Laz. Zug" in the soldbuch

Default SS Pz Abt 102

Here is one of my favorites from 2016, Franz Medwetz served with Nordland, SS Pz Korps III and II.

He was KIA on April 26, 1945 during the breakout of the Halbe Pocket to the 12th Army, buried in Sperenburg.


I am still using Barry's scans.
