    Carl,

    Did you know that Ritterkreuztrager [​IMG] Carl-August Landfermann Leitender Ingenieur on U-181 is still alive? according to Das Ritterkreuz.

    If you are interested i will check that for you.

    Anything in the post yet ?

    Paul

    Hi Mate--that is excellent news--please check for me.

    Sorry to say that I have not seen anything yet--I asked the postman to try to keep hie eye out looking for a package from England for me. Now--sometime last week--something was signed for at the flat office which is mine but--the office people seems to have misplaced it. I don't know who this is from but--I keep checking back there when I can in case they do find my mail.

    Alos--thanks to some auto repairs--I am yet again--delayed in sending you that Civilian Award I wanted to get out to you. This time the delay is because of lack of funds :rolleyes: :rolleyes:

    Hi Paul,

    That's good news, I too would be interested in hearing if Carl-August Landfermann is still alive.

    Also does anyone know if Heinz Rothardt 2./PzAufklAbt 11 is still alive or is he ill as I just got loads of photo copied stuff from him, and no letter or autograph.

    Also is Eduard Lindinger still alive as I got an unsigned photo from him and a small two line note which I can't read.

    Any Help would be great.

    Cheers
    Phil [​IMG]

    It's correct that Albert Frey has passed away. He passed away on the 1. September together with his wife, Lotten. Albert Frey was one of the oldest living Waffen-SS knight's cross holders.
