    Hi Flitzen.. it appears you have posted this thread in the wrong area Hopefully a moderator will see the post soon! I think someone can help you out with this one pretty easily, but I am American and I only speak English.

    Regards Caleb


    Glossary of German military terms - Wikipedia

    Division – in the army and air force a military formation, in the navy either a sub-unit of a squadron or trainings units of battalion size.
    Divisionsarzt – medical officer of a division.
    Divisionskommandeur – commanding officer of a division, typically a General officer. In the imperial army this was the post of a Generalleutnant.


    gefallen (gef.) – fallen, killed in action

    Standarte – SS unit equivalent to a regiment
    Standort – garrison
    Standortältester – garrison commander

    My guess is something like.... Division. Killed in action on 29 June 1940.

    Stick around and wait for someone who speaks German lol. I was just interested.
