    Your research is correct all that happened was that that number was removed to the first unit and then allocated to the Kdo 25 Panzer Div !! This took place in January 1942 !!

    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

    Thank you so much, the holster is dated 1943 so that narrows it down, as for the name, "Gefr Franz" anyway of finding out what happened to this guy?
