    Here is one of the new ones I bought yesterday:

    Gefreiter Anton Scheitler, from Burglengenfeld.

    This young man died in a hospital on the Eastern front on August 2nd, 1944. He was 20 years old.

    Rest in peace, Gefr. Scheitler.

    The last of the three:

    Gefreiter Josef Hoerandtner

    This man, a member of an SS-Sturm, was killed on November 2nd, 1941 at Kotosalmi. (This is presumably near Leningrad. I have tried with no luck to find out where this place is.)

    Rest in peace, Josef Hoerandtner.

    No; it would appear to be on the Finnish-Soviet border. (It sounds Finnish and the card says "bei Kotosalmi an der finnisch-bolschewistischen Front", i.e. "near Kotosalmi on the Finnish-Bolshevist front.)
    My guess would be that he was with the 6th SS-Division "Nord" which was operating in this theater at the time.
