Hanke stayed with this same unit until January 1943, when he moved to the schwere Flak-Abteilung 251, fighting with the 9. Flak-Division on the Krim peninsula. Later that year, he fought with Flakscheinwerfer-Abteilung 440, also part of the 9. Flak-Division on the Krim, until he was hospitalised with jaundice in December 1943. After his recovery, he ended the war with the divisional staff. The 9. Flak-Division saw action on the Western Front in the Metz and Saar area, before retreating into the Reich. Hanke survived the war and was awarded the Medaille zur Erinnerung an den 1. Oktober 1938.
