    Nice grouping Mo, and nicely assisted by Andreas as ever. Makes these documents so much more interesting when you are able to find out even just a little about them.

    It really is nice to put a story behind it. The wound badge document by itself would simply describe a guy who was injured in 1945, but with his kranketblatt I was able to figure out where he was injured, how, where he was treated, and what happened to him after the war. He traded in his jaw for an American POW camp over a Soviet one. I would have loved to have met this guy.

    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

    I decided to do a little more research on Grenadier Regiment 184. According to 'Lexikon der Wehrmacht', by Easter 1945, there were only 14 men remaining in the regiment! Most of them had been killed, injured, or captured at the Varka bridgehead, where Erich Eschler was wounded. Whoever was left was sent to Berlin, and fought to the bitter end. I wish that this man was still alive. I can only imagine the stories he could tell.

    As HPL said, he suffered a severe wound to the lower jaw.
    The documents describe how its deformed and how he lost a shed load of teeth (the numbers mentioned in the document are the teeth missing!)
