Searching for information, material and items of RAD "Hessen-Süd" (where my father was probably in K-Einsatz, combat engagement, in the Alps in 1945), IR 87 (where my grandfather was during campaign in France in 1940), Gardegrenadierregiment Nr. 3 "Königin Elisabeth" (where my grand-uncle was at Craonne/Chemin des Dames in France in 1917)
Can you produce some better in focus photos please !
The gates of hell were opened and we accepted the invitation to enter" 26/880 Lance Sgt, Edward Dyke. 26th Bn Northumberland Fusiliers , ( 3rd Tyneside Irish )
1st July 1916
Thought shall be the harder , heart the keener,
Courage the greater as our strength faileth.
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
House Carles at the Battle of Hastings
Sure, it's easy - ALL you have to do is find the Soldbuch of the individual a particular dog tag was issued to.
There is No other way.
