    Looking for info Horst Quednau. He was the Revierfoerster from 1934 at Rekowe/Rekau near Ortelsburg in East Prussia and was killed in 1943 in Russia while serving as Oberfeldwebel with 3rd Company of Pionier-Bataillon 41 at Stalingrad.

    I have his coat when he was Revierfoerster at Rekau and want to learn more about him. I found info about his father, who also was in forestry and about his family, who made it to West Germany post-war.

    Thanks !

    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
