Original German WWII Panzer Artillery Regiment 102 Captured Named POW Grouping

Item Description

Original Items: One-of-a-kind set. This overcoat, medals and original documents (no copies) belonged to Ober Gefreiten Erich Hamann who was assigned to the Panzer Artillerie Regiment 102. Included in this grouping are a blue wool great coat with shoulder boards, that appears to have been worn during his capture as a Prisoner of War held by the Americans.

The 102nd Artillery Regiment was set up on September 1, 1938 in Vienna, in Wehrkreis XVII. The regiment emerged from the light artillery regiment 9 and the 2nd division of the light artillery regiment 1 of the Austrian Armed Forces. The regiment was placed under the 4th light division after the formation. The regiment was later to be relocated with the regimental staff and the 1st division to St. Pölten, also military district XVII, but this apparently no longer happened. The regiment was subordinated to the 9th Panzer Division by renaming the higher-level unit from January 1, 1940. On August 1, 1940, the II. Division from Artillery Regiment 50 to III. Division renamed by the regiment. On December 12, 1941, the entire regiment was renamed the Panzer Artillery Regiment 102. The regiment was commanded by Oberst Walther Bömerz and Major Ewald Kraus.
