Grüss Gott Manschaft

Post  Hans Heitmann on Fri Dec 30, 2011 1:56 pm

I'm honoured to meet you all here !

My game Id " Hans Heitmann " is the real identity of my German grandpa. This one was 17 old when he was enrolled in the glorious Prussian army... That was in late 1916 ! He fought on the Westfront, principally during the "chemin des dames" battle (april 1917), and then in the flanders and the somme sector. He was honoured with both EK 2 and EK 1 for his actions, and was severely injured by gas, during winter 1917.
During WW2, he served as Flakoffizier, in the Braunschweig area. He died 1977, from direct consequences of his 60 year old gas intoxication... All my young years imagination were feeded with the stories he told me about his time as "Frontschwein".
My father, Who was french, was 19, when he joined de Gaulle in early 1944. He was enrolled to French first army and became a SHERMAN tank driver. He fought first during the Alsace campaign, and then up to the junction with soviet troops at the river Elbe.

Concerning myself, I'm 46, married (sorry she's first too...), with two magnificent daughters aged 13 and 15.
I'm actually an NCO in the French military police, the Gendarmerie Nationale, but I'll soon leave to become a manager in a private security company.
Concerning foreign languages, I'm fluent in French and German, and I also try to be not too bad in English...

I was really interested by our division, because of its historical and realistic approach.
You'll find in me an in-defective Kamerad, and a brave soldier !

Now it rests me to wish you all a happy new year, Guten Rutsch und Sieg Heil !
