    Is it 'grenadier'?

    Grenadier Rgt 12 (and Pz.Grenadier Rgt 12) weren't formed until 1942. I thought it might of been Panzer but there isn't a Panzer Rgt 12.

    It's neither "Grenadier", nor "Panzer"; it says "Grenzw." (i.e. "Grenzwacht" or "Border Guard")

    According to Lexikon der Wehrmacht (see Lexikon der Wehrmacht) Grenzwacht-Regiment 12 (AKA Grenzwacht-Abschnitt 12) was raised on 26 August 1939.

    It consisted of 4 battalions with a total of 9 companies and was subordinate to Grenzschutz-Abschnitts-Kommando 2.

    It was disbanded again in the autum of 1939.

    Yes; he was killed in action on 10 September 1939 at Wylatowo. (see Wylatowo - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia )
