Hi David

" Hitler's various numbers at different periods were '148', '204' and '1062' (and '718' ?) 148 was the number he carried on his initial issue (M-1878) identity disc and 1062 was stamped on his 1917 issue version. "

Skipman, Prussian.

Thank you for the only serious response - accepting that my stupidity deserved some stick.

I would therefore be safe to use 1062 for 1918. I assume it would have had som kind of prefix, can you advise please if so and what.

Many thanks both.

David

1062 was his final issued ( for 1918 anyway... he may have had another in 1919 (7111?)) kriegstammrolle number, yes. Just out of curiosity, what makes you think it should have a prefix?

Croonaert.

A simplistic reason really - in my ignorance

I have no knowledge of German soldiers numbers or identity discs if that is the right term (although on the third try I managed to work out that Adolpho (his lost cousin in Italy) was confusing to me and the world) . I felt that 1062 was such a low number that some other identification (such as regimental designation) would be needed to ensure that such a simple number could be confused with the same number used in other Regiments and arms of service. So I guess I am also asking was AH's name psrt of the number in any way on his Id (disc?)

Thanks again

David

The Germans numbering was on a company or battalion system, so Adolf's number isn't particularly unusual or low.

In it's basic terms, his 1916 or 17 pattern disc that would have been worn in 1918 would have been stamped up with something along the lines of the following...

ADOLF HITLER

20.4.89

MUNCHEN. SCHLEISSHEIMERSTR.34.

BAY.R.J.R.16

3.K. 1062

Bear in mind that this is only a possibility...the details may have been slightly different (in both detail and format) and there may have been other obsolete information (struck out or not) both on the obverse and reverse.

Croonaert,

Many thanks, just what I needed. It will do just fine for a piece of fact backed fictional writing in am attempting. Although friends maintain that as ex journo and pr hack \I have never written anything else.

So, many thanks

David, Adolpho and Adolf.
