Gunther - this information comes from the Volksbund Deutsche Kriegsgräberfürsorge. I strongly recommend you to fill out a tracing request at the WASt (Deutsche Dienststelle). They can provide you, when in archive, with more information / documents.Gunther wrote:Many thanks CS! - very useful info - the number on his sleeve is a '2' whatever that denotes
Richard - thanks for the info re his death, can I ask where you found this information as I have been searching for an official record somewhere - all I have is his Wehrpass stating this but to see it from another source would be really helpful - if you can advise - many thanks
Sorry Gunther this is all info I could find.Gunther wrote:Thanks Richard - I have put in a request to the Volksbund who had no records of him and passed the information on to Berlin and the organisation you mentioned in your post. Do you have direct access or copies of these records as you had the information to hand...am intrigued that's all! Will put in my request today. Thanks again, Gunther
Gunther, with not recovered I meant the exhumation and reburial to a German Military Cemetery, the field grave (on your photograph) was not yet discovered.Gunther wrote:Thanks Richard, am slightly shocked by your last statement about his body as I have photograph of his grave and all of his personal effects were returned to my grandmother....I will see what the WASt have on record.
all the best,
