High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles! Rudolf Petersen (15
June 1905 in Atzerballig on Alsen, Denmark; died 2 January 1983 in
Flensburg) was a German officer in the Kriegsmarine during World
War II. Petersen, in his role as Kommodore, was the head of the
court of what might have been the last desertion-trial of Nazi
Germany. Matrose Fritz Wehrmann, age 26 from Leipzig, Funker Alfred
Gail, age 20 from Kassel, and Obergefreiter Martin Schilling, age
22 from Ostfriesland were executed on board Buea on 10 May 1945 two
days after the Unconditional surrender of Germany. The accused had
received news of the German capitulation to the British forces on 4
May 1945. On 6 May 1945 they left their stations on Svendborg on
Funen to get to the mainland. They were caught by the Danish Police
and handed over to the German authorities on Funen.
