    Sure- the 96 is the soldier's roll number; A is his blood group; and the unit is 16. Kompanie, Landesschützen-Bataillon VI/XVIII. A simple Internet search for the unit (without the Kompanie) will give you its history (one of the first hits will probably be the Lexikon der Wehrmacht site).
    Ohhhhh- pillage then burn...
