I. Wachoffizier U-92 mid 1944?
« am: 08 Januar 2021, 02:00:27 »
Hello all,

Does anyone know who was the I. Wachoffizier aboard U-92 from March until July 1944?

I have before and after but can not find who it was during this time scale:

Oblt.z.S. Gottfried Dingler: U-92 II W.O. March 42-August 43.I W.O. August 43-March 44
Oblt.z.S. Rudolf Walther: U-92. I W.O.July 44-October 44

Attached is his signature....

Regards,
Ian

Thank you Axel,

I can see it is a K now, thought it was a T at the beginning.

Regards,
Ian

Also thanks Axel, will add into crew list.
Do you have more on the record of Arno Knof.

Cheers Herb. top

Hi Herb,

yes, I have.

Oberleutnant zur See (as from 1.10.43) Arno Knof (born 5 July 1919) was a member of Crew X/39. Served aboard SAAR as III.WO and II.WO before he joined the U-boat arm on 6 July 1943. Following U-boat Training he was appointed to 9.Ufl. on 28 December 1943. Moved on to U 92 as I.WO on 19 January 1944, made one patrol. 1 June 1944 to 9. Ufl. reserve pool owing to sickness. 15 August transferred to 5. Ufl. reserve pool. From 11 October 1944 onward became instructor at Torpedo School I.
