Color Slide Collection from Hugo Krause, 3rd Battalion of the 136 Gebirgsjager Rgt.
I just landed the biggest deal of 2012.
a little more than 500 private color slides (farbdias) taken by an Austrian born and trainned Gebirgsjager soldier. Serving in the german army from 1938 until 1944.
The photographer was a Tirol man called Hugo Krause.
Every single color slide has a hand writhen description with date and location.
The collections shows Hugos trainning in the Kasserne Landeck in Austria. Then into Russia and Latvia 1941 and 1942.
Then later 1943 and 1944, retreating with his troops back to Norway and Lappland.
I sadly dont have any more private information about this man at the moment.
But any help would be super, to track down more information on this man.
Also from the brief information about being a Gebirgsjager member and being first stationed in Landeck, then onto Russia and finally to Norway and Lappland 1944. I guess he would have belonged to the Gebirgsjagerregiment 136 ?
But strangly enough, on the slide box, is written Rgt 134.
I wonder did he writh down the wrong regiment number ?
Anyway, any help on researching this man would be super !
