    Default Document grouping to Franz Keusen. Gefallen, 15/12/1941

    Hello all,

    I thought I would share this document grouping with you all. Today seems like a fitting day to share, seeing as it was on this day (15th of December) in 1941 that this young man was killed in action at only 25 years of age.

    I have this young mans Wehrpa▀ which I have had translated, his award document for his Ostmedaille (presented to his next of kin after his death) and a letter from an archivist to Franz's wife, shortly after his death, requesting a photograph of Franz for an 'Honour Book' that was to be prepared.

    The Ostmedaille pictured is not part of the grouping. I hope you have enjoyed seeing this grouping, I feel very fortunate to own it.

    Best wishes,
    Joshua

    It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.
