    Bruder,
    Walter Koch ist geb(oren) am 3.8.18.
    in Plattenhardt a(n) / F(ilderstadt?).
    u(nd) ist gef(allen) am 23.12.41 in xxxxx
    liegt er begraben auf dem Feldfriedhof
    Eingerückt am 8. Sept(ember (19)39.
    Ballpoint: Gefallen 23.12.41.


    "Brother,
    Walter Koch was born on the 3rd of August 1918
    in Plattenhardt near F(ilderstadt?)
    and fell on the 23rd of December 1941
    he lies buried on the war/front cemetery of xxxx.
    He was drafted/went into the army on the 8th of September 1939
    Ballpoint: Fell on the 23rd of December 1941."

    I am reminded of the tremendous loss of Barbarossa by this haunting portrait from my collection of Gefrieter Walter Koch who, from his date of death, likely died during the Russian counteroffensive. According to the collector who translated the difficult Sutterleinschrift, the place were he was born is likely "Plattenhardt" somewhat south of Stuttgart.
