Friend of Walter Schmietenknop, sole survivor or U-767
I know Walter Schmietenknop all my life since we are cousins and grew up together in Germany and we are visiting each other from time to time and I have just telephoned him about this site and he informed me that he had seen the site.
So If you could maybe help me find other U-Boot members who got lost during the War. I would be interested to find out about 2 of my School friends who perished and never been heard from.
Herman Kuper Also from Oldenburg
And Kar-Heinz Kappertz also Oldenburg. Any information to the friend of my would be appreciated.
Thank you for your message. Walter was lucky to survive the sinking of his U-Boat, as he was the only person to live from that attack.
I was in touch with him in Canada through his son - in- law at Vancouver.
I am not sure that I can trace your U-Boat friends, but I will try, and will write to you again.
Nice to here from you.
