Hi Guys,

 

Here are new questions about the Normandy campaign: The nickname given to the 12th SS Panzer Division was what?  Who was its commanding officer?

The Hitlerjugend Division because it was made up primarily of Hitler Youth with cadre from the 1st SS Leibstandart Adolf Hitler - talk about some hardcore Nazi individuals. The first commander was SS Uberfuhrer Fritz Witt. Witt was killed about a week after the division was committed to the Normandy fighting (committed June 7) by naval gunfire outside Caen and was replaced by Kurt Meyer.

Oldallamerican,

 

Very good!  You are correct!  Not bad for a paratrooper from the 82nd Airborne Division! :)

Hi Guys,

 

During the Normandy campaign where were the first Tiger I tanks encountered?  Where were the first Tiger II tanks encountered?

 

Thanks,

AC,

 

You are correct about where the Tiger II tanks were encountered in Normandy, France in July 1944.  Tiger I tanks, on the other hand, were encountered by elements of the British 7th Armored Division near Villers-Bocage.  Their opponent was Michael Wittmann.

Hi Guys,

 

The British 6th Airborne Division was responsible for a key assignment as part of Operation Overlord.  What was this key assignment?

 

Thanks,

Pegasus Bridge, a very well executed operation.

 

What was the business name of the first building liberated ?

 

Which German unit did they engage that night ?

 

What special unit was to link up with them the following morning ?

 

What was the name of the first man from this unit considered to be the first KIA on D-Day ?

AC,

 

I will answer two of the questions and let other collectors have an opportunity to answer the remaining two unanswered questions.

 

British commandos from the 1st Special Services Brigade under the command of Lord Lovat linked up with Major John Howard and his Oxs and Bucks at Pegasus Bridge.  Howard unfortunately would lead the ill-fated assault at Arnhem later in 1944 during Operation Market Garden. 

 

Lt. Den Brotheridge is the first recorded D-Day KIA.

Neil,

 

My apologies for the oversight.  Howard was not at Arnhem; Frost was there.  I keep getting the 1st and 6th British Airborne Divisions confused.

 

Okay, how about answering the other two questions posted by Alex.

 

Thanks,

 

Alex II

Hi Guys,

 

There is one more question to answer: "Which German unit was engaged by British paratroopers?" 

 

Thanks,

Hi Guys,

 

I will post a new D-Day quiz question this week.  I just got back from vacationing in Charleston, South Carolina with my family this week.  The weather, beach, ocean and the city were all marvelous, although Hurricane Arthur reared its ugly for a day where we were staying.  Anyway, I am glad to be back and have some catch up reading to do.  I hope that everyone had a very enjoyable Independence Day weekend!  God bless the United States!

 

Best,

 

Alex II
