    Yes I do, the work has just started. He saw a lot of action before being ordered to the "Eismeerfront" were he was killed in early 1944.

    I´m working together with his relatives to get the complete picture. There is of course a lot of material to go through several hundred pictures, almost as may letters from the front and the condoleance letters after he was killed in the far north. Below are a few pictures of him .

    Interesting. Puts a face and a name on a old piece of uniform.
    Collect ROA, Cossack, Schuma and other WW2 Volunteer militaria.

    Thank you for noticing this. The cap eagle was returned to the relatives after his death in 1944.
