HJ membership card of Franz Schmiech. dated 29-04-1936 With civil passphoto. Nice example w picture and various entries/stamps from 1936-1940. Further to this additional info on Franz: After training as aircraft mechanic he served April 44-Febr.45 with KG-101. a training unit, disbanded summer 1944. Part of the unit was made operational and renamed Einsatzgruppe 101. a.o. active in France ( St.Bizier) and western Germany. Febr.45 he was transferred to 4./KG-200. Although ofﬁcially a training and testing unit, this was a unit that carried out top secret missions, a.o. dropping secret agents and sabotage specialists behind enemy lines. Also the unit had a variety of conﬁscated allied planes, used for operations towards the end of the war when the use of german planes had become most hazardous (a.o supply ﬂights to meteo stations at Greenland, transports of high Nazi ofﬁcials and strategic goods to Spain and Portugal. etc). A correspondence from late April 45 is known between the Minister of Industry Albert Speer and the C0. of KG- 200. Lt.Co|. Werner Baumbach regarding Speers intention to escape from Germany. Baumbach was asked by Speer to prepare one of the allied planes of his unit and fly him to Greenland.( this would have been. by the way. an act of high treason l). Baumbach conﬁrmed that everything was prepared but for unknown reasons this flight never took place.
