SHARKHUNTERS International
Oberfeuerwerker GERHARD DIETRICH  #5923-1999
Heer, German Army, Artillery

 

Oberfeuerwerker GERD DIETRICH served with von Mannstein's troops as they raced across the Crimea, pushing the Soviet Army back to the sea.  He was still with this force when more and more Soviet troops arrived and the German Army, the Heer, was forced back.

As Oberfeuerwerker, GERD was tasked with overseeing the maintenance on all the big guns in the fight as well as insuring sufficient ammunition at each gun emplacement.

GERD was a wonderful friend to Sharkhunters and a personal friend of Sharkhunters President HARRY COOPER (1-LIFE-1983).  Many of the great DVDs of combat we offer came directly from the private collection of GERD - and he left orders that upon his death, his dress saber was to be given to COOPER.  That sword hangs proudly on the wall over his desk.

GERD was a fine man and a great friend to Sharkhunters.
