Regimentsstab 14. Kompanie Grenadier-Regiment 1243

Hello fellow researchers,

I am hoping there is someone who can
provide me with information regarding my uncle’s Army Unit.

His name is Heinz WABNITZ born 06 October
1927 in Friesen, Germany. He was a
soldier in the Regimentsstab 14. Kompanie Grenadier-Regiment 1243 and also
Angehöriger der Einheit Grenadier-Ersatz und Ausbildungs-Bataillon 82 erfasst.

He was listed as missing at Stalingrad
early in 1945.

I would appreciate information about the
Units he served in, where they served, photographs relating to the Unit and, if
possible, names of soldiers that were part of this Unit.

One further request regarding campaign
medals or military awards for those soldiers belonging to this unit - are they
entitled to receive such awards and how can I obtain such awards?

Any information would be very much
appreciated.

Regards from Australia,

Henry

Hi

Welcome to the Forum!

From which sources do you have this information?
Did you send a request at the WASt or the DRK? If not you should do it.
The DRK has documents about missing soldiers and prisoners of war in Russia.

I have just seen that they have a new Website:

Regimentsstab 14. Kompanie Grenadier-Regiment 1243

Hello Svenja,

Sorry for the delay in replying and thank you for your information.
The source of this information is from my own family records with confirmation received from the Deutsche Dienststelle and Deutsche Red Cross in regards to my uncle Heinz WABNITZ.
My main interest now is his Military unit - Regimentsstab 14. Kompanie Grenadier-Regiment 1243 and also Angehöriger der Einheit Grenadier-Ersatz und Ausbildungs-Bataillon 82 erfasst.
I would appreciate any information regarding the Units he served in, where they served, photographs relating to the Unit and, if possible, names of soldiers that were part of this Unit.
Regarding campaign medals or military awards for those soldiers belonging to this unit - are they entitled to receive such awards, how can I obtain such awards and who must I contact?


Best regards,
Henry

Hi Henry

Regarding campaign medals or military awards I think information if he had got one or not must be at the WASt.

Quoted

how can I obtain such awards and who must I contact?


I know it is possible to obtain such awards in the UK for British soldiers, but I have never heard that this is also possible in Germany for the German soldiers.


Quoted

Grenadier-Ersatz und Ausbildungs-Bataillon 82


If this is his Regiment on the Erkennungsmarke (identification tag), then he had been there before he went into a theatre of war.
Usually the inscription on the identification tag was not changed, if he was transfered to another unit which was activ in the war.
Such units were for training to be a soldier or when he was recovering from wounds to be reintegrated later in the regular troops.

Svenja
