Commander update and a request for help

This is a good news/bad news sort of post.

The good news is that I was recently at Duke University library and made a copy of the 1937 volume of the Rangliste der Deutschen Kriegsmarine that they have. I'm currently in the process of updating our World War Two commander crew and promotion date information based upon this important source, which is one in a series of yearly lists of German naval officers and officer candidates. If you’re doing research on U-boat commanders, I recommend that you double check our files as there are some notable changes; based upon the 1937 Rangliste, there certainly are some errors in Busch and Röll.

The bad news is that there remain a lot of holes in our World War II commander listings. The best way to fix this is going to be via other editions of the Rangliste. If you have access to any other years after 1922 aside from 1937, I'd love to hear from you.

Best wishes,
Michael
