    The piece that used the round is exactly what you see on the case- the 8cm M30; a 76.5mm Czech field artillery piece [ FK30(t) ] captured and used by the Germans. And it's unlikely you can get this man's service records from the DND- it's personal, private information that only family can get usually. You might see if you can find the unit and maybe they have an organization that you can contact or something to get personal recollections or whatever...
    Ohhhhh- pillage then burn...
