Fun fact, during our town's Memorial Day Parade we were marching past our Firefighter's band, and they were playing the Hogan's Heroes theme!

12/12 Watch it every night. They are like family!! My dad served in WWII and he loved this show. Always reminds me of him. If I hadn't gotten them right, my dad would have been so disappointed!! Well, not really....but I would have been. :)

11 almost threw me, I was tempted to say he was a Sgt.

12/12 in 8 seconds. Some of the ranks are wrong though. Washington was simply a sergeant; RAF had no colonel. Oh well. Lol.

1. Baker was not a staff seargeant. His insignia of three chevron is labeled just "seargeant" on a poster of army insignia for sale by Wal-Mart. Kinch's staff seargeant insignia included an arc below the three chevrons.

2. Crittendon's rank was a mistake. The RAF had no rank of Colonel. The equivalent rank was Group Captain, like Hogan's friend, James Roberts, in "A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to London."

I accidentally gave Newkirk a Promotion... the only one I missed... could swore he was cited as ____ in at least one episode

It's probably because he always seems to tell Sgt. Carter what to do even though Newkirk is just a corporal.

Interesting thing is that Carter is the highest-ranking NCO among Hogan's group of regulars. On the occasions when Carter has his jacket off and his insignia is visible on his shirt sleeve, he has three chevrons and two downward arcs, one stripe more than Kinch has.

Remember that the Heroes sometimes posed as other people. Newkirk might have pretended to be a sergeant.

Baker was a Sgt, not a Staff Sgt.

Hogan, Kinchloe, Carter, Lebeau & Newkirk weren’t just unfortunate captured pow’s, they each had a specialty and were “placed” in Stalag 13 as part of military strategy to run an Allied operation out of the camp.

I think Schultz and Klink were pro allies Germans.
ENCarlan vinman63 32 months ago
Schultz was a collaborator from the get-go and, in my opinion, by the end of the series he had become a defector.

Makes sense since the Nazi took his toy factory.
ENCarlan vinman63 29 months ago
Last week, late season 5 episode, but I don't remember which one, LeBeau calls Schultz a Social Democrat. This party was a rival of the Nazis in the 1930s power struggle. Unless writer Arthur Julian just didn't know that Nazi meant National Socialist, this is proof that Schultz was not a Nazi.

Stalag 13 was a front for the allies and everyone was aware of it. Eve the Gestapo but they couldn’t prove it.
