    Hi guys,


    I will fill you guys out on the full story very soon but this may turn out to be a BIG story if i can find this guy.
    If i can find records of his existance this will make the news papers.
    I looking to research a name of a german soldier that fought and died in the Kurland Pocket
    The name i have is Peter Schmidt or Pete Schmidt. I was acually given Peter smith but i doubt highly that a German would have such an english sounding name.
    He was very young, 17 or 18 some say maybe even 16.
    There is a strong link with Salzburg , Austria wether thats where he is born or thats where he was based.

    Can anyone here help me or give me a website that may have soldiers names that fought in this area or soldiers names that were based at Salzburg austria in ww2. He may have been Hitler youth?

    Any websites that may help my research or any information you guys can help with is MUCHLY appreciated and if you are even in Australia i will buy you a few beers!
    Thanks!

    "with the majority of the enlisted being drawn from Hitler Youth boys between the ages of 16 and 18"

    Not to be too negative but the chances of tracing someone called Schmidt in Armeegruppe Kurland have got to be nil !!
