    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

    Yeah, that's what I wondered. He was killed on the 23rd Dec at the place where Peipers men were. The next day they left their vehicles to try & break out.

    From Wiki.:

    Peiper was unable to protect his rear, which enabled American troops to recapture and destroy the bridge on the Amblève in Stavelot, cutting him off from the only possible supply road for ammunition and, above all, fuel, which he lacked. In spite of these problems, Peiper continued his progress towards Stoumont before American resistance forced him to retire to La Gleize. Short of fuel, men and ammunition he held out during six days of US Army bombardment and counterattacks. Without supplies and with no contact with other German units behind him, Peiper decided on 24 December to abandon his vehicles and march through the woods to escape. He left with the remaining 800 men and 36 hours later he reached the German lines with 770 men, having covered 20 kilometers by foot in deep snow and freezing temperatures.

    Hi Chaps, just picked up this one. Looks like a Battle Of The Bulge casualty.

    Also, looks like he was with the 1 SS Pz. Is that right?

    Here is my latest Narva Death card pick up.

    Alfred Kugel died at the HauptverbandPlatz of San Kompanie 161 at Johvi , this was the Medical unit of the 61st Infanterie Division.

    At this time the Division had been fighting in the Third Operation Strachwitz in the Auwere so it is quite likely that he was seriously wounded in that area.

    That's an interesting one, thanks for sharing. What exactly is a hauptverbandplatz, though? Is that a different name for the headquarters?
