    From lexikon-der-wehrmacht.de


    Commanders:


    24. Juni 1943 SS-Brigadeführer Fritz de Witt
    14. Juni 1944 SS-Brigadeführer Kurt Meyer
    6. September 1944 SS-Obersturmbannführer Hubert Meyer
    24. Oktober 1944 SS-Brigadeführer Fritz Krämer
    13. November 1944 SS-Brigadeführer Hugo Kraas


    Wünsche was the commander of the 12. SS Panzerregiment I think.
