Hej Felix,

from a yearbook of Johannes Spiess' Crew 07 celebrating the 20th anniversary in 1927:

Johannes Spiess born 25. July 1888 married on 7.April 1923 to Carola Eckhusen, born 11. March 1903. First son born in 1924, second son in 1926. Address at the time: Hamburg 39, Maria Luisenstr. 90

then follow his WWI commands - I trust you have them.

As for his life after the Great War: May 1919 to February 1920 minesweeping and from 1920 onwards working: Hamburg, Leiter der Reedereiabteilung August Bolin, later Hamburg, director of the Gesellschaft dea Deutschen Hochseerundfunks.


The yearbook of Crew 07 from 1932 only yields a change of address:

Altona-Grossflottbeck (now part of Hamburg), Papenkamp 8


And then hopefully allowing you to fill some gaps the yearbook of 1957:

1939 - 1945: 1940 O.K.W./Wehrmachtspropaganda. Beim Vormarch in Frankreich vor den Deutsachen Spitzen Besetzung des Franzoesischen Marineministeriums. Vorlaeufige Uebernahme der Werften in Nantes und St. Nazaire. - 1941 Station N/ Abwehr. - 1942 Hafenkommandant La Palice beziehungsweise St. Jean de Luz - 1942/43 Marinegruppenkommande West, Paris - 1943/44 O.K.M./1. Skl. - Mai 1944 verabschieded. Werfttreuhaender der Ruestungswirtschaft in Belgien.
1945 - heute: Gruendung der Bergungsfirma Spiess & Co. in Hamburg. Lange Taetigkeit als Ueberfuehurungskapitaen oder 1. Ofizier auf fast allen Meeren. Hat auf vilen Reise alle Stellen wiedergesehen an denen er mit seinem U-Boot Schiffe versenkt hat und viele Haefen besucht, in denen er als Seekadett auf S.M.S. Moltke gewesen ist.
Verfasste das Buechlkein "Sechs Jahre U-Bootfahren", das in fuenf Sprachen uebersetzt wurde und noch Heute verkauft wird.

Und schliesslich folgen hier noch mehr Details zu seinen Kindern:
1. Joachim (Jochen) 3. Februar 1924, selbstaendiger Textilvertreter in Muenchen.
2. Jobst Dieter 16. Juni 1926, Exportvertreter in Hamburg, verheiratet mit Christel Hosie, geb. 6. April 1930
3. Juergen 3.September 1928, in Exportfirma von Werkzeugmaschienen nach Japan und Ostasien.
4. Jutta 6. Mai 1934, Ausbildung an der Kunsthochschule, verheiratet mit Guenther Schlottkau, geb. 12. Oktober 1926
5. Jens 18. Januar 1939, Lehrling in Exportfirma nach Ostasien.

Anschrift: Hamburg Nienstedten, Rupertistr. 177.

Und damit ended der Eintrag. Johannes Spiess scheint so gesehen ein gesegnetes Leben gefuehrt zu haben. Viele Marineoffiziere seiner Jahrgaenge haben selbst oft den Zweiten Weltkrieg nicht ueberlebt oder doch zumindest Kinder im Krieg verloren. Schoen zu sehen, dass seine Familie da Glueck gehabt hat.


Well, I hope all of this is of some use to you. The yearbook of 1957 yields more detail on Spiess' pre-war and WWI commands. But I guess you have that information?

Greetings from sunny (at least right now) Scotland,
Ufo
