May 6, 1940

1940-05-06My grandfather receives note of his promotion to the rank of Wachtmeister. The rank is that of a non-commissioned officer, equal to the Staff Sergeant of the US Army. The term is specific to Cavalry and Artillery units, the other branches call it Feldwebel.

With the promotion comes a transfer to a different Batterie – my grandfather started out with 4./AR 84 – he is now posted to 6./AR 84.
