help finding my nanna's 1st husband

Post by sgrattan » Wed Aug 29, 2018 11:53 pm

Hi all i'm new to this forum
I'm from Australia and have been trying to search for a fallen family member from ww2. I have copies of his I.d book and the letter my nanna received that informed her of his death. Can anyone help with the translation of the book. i can't upload them as the files are too big

After a kind person helped me with translation
Its been narrowed down to

Helmut Köllner was a driver of a semi-tracked armored personnel carrier Sd.Kfz. 251 in 5th Co. of Panzergrenadier-Regiment 6 as regimental part of 7th Tank Division (during the war in the West 1940 the CiC of this Division was Erwin Rommel).

Also his death letter was signed by Oberleutnant Hansel. Im hoping someone can help with any info on the above
Cheers shane
