Biography

According to family records, Viktor Thormählen died on 18th January 1944 as Rittmeister. The pothumous awarding of the Ritterkreuz gives the rank of Oberleutnant der Reserve as does the OKH-Listing. Possibly he was posthumously promoted to Rittmeister. Several other sources indicate 16th January as the date of his death.
