Maj. Heinz Frank

Hello,

my question could probably be simple, but can somebody shed some light if was Maj. Heinz Frank CO of I./SG 152, respectively bit later IV./SG 151?

As a CO of I./SG 152 is mentioned Hptm. Karl Kennel (November 15 1943 - August 16 1944) and same officer as CO of IV./SG 151 (August 17 1944 - October 10 1944). But according to other sources Hptm. Kennel was appointed Gruppenkommandeur of II./SG 2 on July 29 1944 after Maj. Heinz Frank. According to recollections of Hermann Buchner, as CO of I./SG 152 came after Kennel indeed Maj. Frank and after him Franz Smole. Can somebody confirm that Maj. Heinz Frank was CO of I./SG 152, respectively IV./SG 151 from July 29 1944 until October 10 1944?

Thanks for help

Michal
