I am new to all this. My usual interest is American Civil War and the AAF in WW2. What brought me here is a Soldbuch for 17 year old Arno Gordt who was killed in action September 16, 1944. The only unit listed in his book is Gren. Ers. u. Ausb. Btl. 105. If I understand things right this was a reserve training organization and did not see combat as a unit, correct?

Is there any way to find out what regiment he was with when he was killed? He is buried in Lommel, Belgium.

I thank you all for any help you can give me.

Hello Andy:
Here is a link which will help: ... t105-R.htm As you will see Btl. 105 provided training for recruits sent to different units during the course of the war. He was probably killed in one of those units. If I were to guess, he was probably killed fighting along the West Wall in 1944-1945. Hope this helps.
