    My friend dug up a German newspaper and other papers.
    I absolutely do not speak German. If you know what is written on these pieces of newspaper, please tell me.
    Thanks.

    Sebastien your paper contains a Death notice for Gustav Elmer KIA on the East front 14/6/1942 at the age of 27 years 5 months.

    A reference to Major Georg Briel , and the award to him of the Knights Cross by the Fuhrer , he was commander of a FLAK Btl in the Western desert , this section also mentions of EL Alamein.

    An account of Flying missions over England ,plus some sort of souvenir from Egypt.

    Georg Briel won the RK 23/7/1942 as Kommandeur HeeresFlakBtl 606 in North Africa

    Here lies our leader ,in the dust of his greatness.
    Who leaves him now , be damned forever.
    We who are old now shall not leave this Battle,
    But lie at his feet , in the dust with our leader
