    My pleasure Leon.
    Paul i know about the SWB and GAB documents that they were signed by the Regiment's commander Franz Grossmehl.
    The EK doc is signed by someone named Wilhe but i can't make out the letters underneath the signature so couldn't search for him. If we can decipher the letters we will know his rank and it would be easier to check him out.
    The rank looks like Generalleutnant un Div Kdr , the Feldpost nummer looks like 03804 ??

    This would be



    03804



    (Mobilmachung-1.1.1940) 7. Kompanie Infanterie-Regiment 1,

    (2.1.1940-27.4.1940) gestrichen, wurde Fp.Nr. 15208 D,

    (15.9.1940-31.1.1941) 1. Kompanie Luftwaffen-Bau-Bataillon 3/XIII,

    (1.8.1943-23.3.1944) 17.12.1943 1. Kompanie Luftwaffen-Bau-Bataillon 103/XIII (K),

    (24.3.1944-6.11.1944) 10.7.1944 4. Kompanie Luftwaffen-Bau-Bataillon 106/VII (K).


    Clearly not a unit commanded by a Generalleutnant !! Unusual to see that the document has been written out completely by the signatory , especially if it is someone of such high rank !!

    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

    Hi guys.
    Thanks for your effort Paul. Where is the feldpost number written? In the Soldbuch?

    Thanks Alex. Groupings are always special. Too bad that they are so expensive sometimes.
