    Otto, I just thought i would let you know about that. I will be gathering all I have about them including photos etc. I will let you know when I get ready for when you wish to make a page on these guys.

    I got an email from one of them yesterday with some VERY interesting news (for me) but it might benefit all. I will be recieving a packge from at least one of them in (hopefully) about 1 week. I am getting somekind of gift from one of them-don't have a clue as to what it could be but, i'm sure it will be very nice.

    Dieter Hille had already said that I would have recieved his uniform if he had still had it. The unfortunate part was that they had to "give" up alot of things when they were interned in Bordeaux, France-after the end of the war. I thought that, that was very nice of him to think of me that much to even consider giving me an item such as his uniform. I could be getting just a card-or I could be getting a vets German Cross in Gold--I just don't know yet.

    I mention this here because, these men are willing to share all they can to me and for this site only. I will keep you posted.

    Dear Erich: Not yet, but I do have an address to their vets org. Schnellboote und Begleitschiff something something. I will have to refind their address and will send it to you. I havent had the time to write them yet about Kapitan zue See Klaus Feldt yet. The person in charge, was friends with klaus who has unfortunately passed away some years ago.

    I will look in my stuff and see where I have that address at, and soon as I find it, I will give it to you. I will try to get it by saturday but if you dont see it here or in an email, it just means that the library (which will be closed till tuesday) was already closed before I made it back here.

    Erich as a matter of fact-here are the addresses to Die Kameradschaft und Begleitschiffe.

    Here is the first version of the address that I got elsewhere:

    Herr Eckhardt Pieper
    Mittelstrasse 16
    D-27568 Bremerhaven

    Here is how the other address is:

    Herr Eckhardt Pieper
    Grashoff 40
    D-27568 Bremerhaven.

    This second address I got was from my friend Karl Kaiser who called them up for me and this is the address he got. I will try this second one out first, as soon as I can get the letter written.

    I can always use more Luftwaffe contacts, are they KC vets? or non KC? which does'nt matter as they all are important.

    PS, Christian is still missing in action, so hopefully next week maybe?? [​IMG]

    A minor correction to my third posting here. I said Klaus Feldt was a Kapitan zur See, he was not, in fact he was a Korvettenkapitan. Whats even worse is that I already knew that! :rolleyes: :rolleyes: ;) [​IMG]

    Wunderbar Carl !

    this is great news. something now for me to look into. Write me off list and tell me what you have for Luftwaffe pilot vets. maybe I can send you some others. You've done a great service by lisiting many RK vets already on this important site.

    Horrido !

    Dear Erich: Sorry for the loss. I recently lost two--my uncle, and one of my comrades from U 181 Franz-Josef Hawran.

    Also (WHEW) internet cafes can get expensive. Yep the library was closed both sunday and monday. I barely managed one full day w/o access to a computer. By 4 pm yesterday, I was ready to rip out my hair and then I saw the magic words: "Internet Cafe" then I went in to a smoke-filled rooms made so by all the lit cancer sticks. I barely survived 1 hour there before getting sick of the smoke and had to exit.

    Anyway-my best regards fo out to you on your loss--take care--your friend-Carl.
