Major Joachim Petzold RKT

I have a small Major Joachim Petzold signed piece in my collection and am currently putting a display together.

I am hoping that someone might be able to pass any informration on the career of Joachim Petzold, particularly after his time in Kampfgeschwader 27.

All help will be very well received, thank you in anticipation.

Regards Richard.

Re: Major Joachim Petzold RKT

A look at our files reveals:

PETZOLD, Joachim.
(DOB: 26.02.13 in Loschowitz/Leitmeritz/Sudetenland).
01.12.35 trf to Aufkl.Gr. 112.

01.06.38 reassigned to KG 27.
16.09.39 Hptm., Stab I./KG 27 WIA vic Neukuhren?
07.40 Oblt., appt Staka 2./Erg.Gr. KG 27 (to 03.41?).
21.05.42 Hptm., appt Staka 3./KG 27 (to 22.11.42).
29.06.42 Hptm., awarded the Ehrenpokal.
21.08.42 Hptm., awarded the DKG, I./KG 27.
01.12.42 Hptm., appt Kdr. I./KG 27 (to 05.44).

31.03.71 retired from the Bundeswehr as an Oberst i.G.

He should not be confused with an Ernst Petzold who also was awarded the Ritterkreuz but was associated with KG 54.

Doug

Thank you very much indeed for your help, and yes it is Joachim Petzold that I am interested in and not Ernst Petzold.

Thanks again.

Regards Richard.

Re: Major Joachim Petzold RKT

Your best bet would be to find Walter Waiss' KG 27 history for more details.
