thanks for the information
is it possible that i can find the name of the soldier from this ekm or not ?
Sadly the German Authorities will not give out this kind of info.
Had good advice? Saved money? Why not become a Gold Club Member, just hit the green "Join WRF Club" tab at the top of the page and help support the forum!

It wasn't a soldier- as I mentioned, these were labourers doing their national service, usually before entering the military.
Ohhhhh- pillage then burn...
