I have an EK2 document to a medic in 11 Komp., GR 287 and have two questions.
GR 287 was originally IR 287 of the 96 Infanterie Division. The following info from www.lexikon-der-wehrmacht.de
"1942 wurde die Division auf sechs Bataillone verkleinert (Auflösung der I./283, I./284 und III./287)"
I don't really read German... so does this mean theses units were shaved of 96 ID or was 96 ID limited to these units for a time?
His was awarded his EK on August 23, 1943 in Hannover by Wehrkreis X1 commander; Bruno Bieler. Is the assumption that hes recovering from a (serious) wound in the Hannover area?
Thanks in advance!!
