    Default Death card anniversary

    This is one of a few German death cards which I have in my Imperial collection and I realized it has a sad hundred years anniversary right today so I decided to share it. Nowadays we can often read about the anniversaries of battles and similar "big" historical events, but I would like to show an example of an individual fate as well.
    If anyone has similar WW1 cards with an anniversary any addition will be cordially appreciated.



    August 27, 1914

    Josef Lechner, a private of the 13th Reserve Infantry Regiment, 6th Company, was fatally wounded when he was shot in the head during the battle of Lunéville. He succumbed to the injury a few days later at the age of 24 years. Lechner, a butcher's son, came from Straubing in Bavaria.
