    Default DAK unit text

    hello, i am trying to translate my grandfathers note book from the western desert. The first few pages look to be in German as it appears it was owned by a DAK soldier before my grandfather used it

    I was wondering if anyone can decipher the writing as its very unclear for an english speaking person. I am abe to pick out a few words like "zug" which i think means Platoon, also a few names and ranks,

    i believe its unit strength notes by an officer.

    The dates (7/7/42)are around the time my grandfathers battalion were in the front lines at tel el eisa.

    please disregard the red pen as my mum did that when she was a kid

    many thanks and Regards Paul
