    It's not a very common first name, but not that unusual either. Nowadays, it's a bit of an old-fashioned name, but back then, it would have been found more often.

    This first name is of Latin origin (Quirinus) and is most often found in Bavaria (as was the case here).

    The place is misspelled it is Kamary (a vital point in defense of Sebastopol). However the majority of the actions at hight 440 were taking place in 1941.

    I don't normally collect these but it so happened that I came across this death notice on eBay, or similar, whilst I was researching a veteran book manuscript about Polish 7 Dywizja Piechoty Armia Krajowa, (Home Army or AK) operating in the Radomsko, Włoszczowa and Częstochowa sectors of occupied Poland. The unit was involved in a major battle with German forces in the Częstochowa sector in late August 1944 which would coincide with the 31 August 1944 date on the death notice and the reference to soldier being wounded(?) by "Banditen (Bandits)" the German euphemism used for the Polish underground fighters and subsequently dying in a war hospital in Częstochowa....if my limited German is correct.
    I collect, therefore I am.

    Nothing in science can explain how consciousness arose from matter.

    The wording appears to imply that he was attacked as an individual, not as a member of a unit that came under attack. The full translation of the text referring to the deceased is:


    "As a memory in prayer of our dear son and brother Jger*) Egon Zauchner who was assaulted**) and severely wounded by bandits***) on 31st August 1944 and died a hero's death on 22nd September 1944 at the base hospital Tschenstochau (Poland) in the 21st year of his life."


    *) The basic-level private rank in light infantry- and mountain infantry formations.

    **) Could also be translated as "ambushed".

    ***) The term Banditen (bandits) had universally replaced the term Partisanen (partisans) in official German terminology by that time, as the latter term was found to have strong positive connotations for the occupied countries' population.
