    This is a pretty interesting one, the likes of which I have never come across.

    Stabsgefreiter Franz Haas, a 45-year-old wound badge in silver recipient, KIA 27.4.45 in Leer, Ostfriesland. He was a member of a Kriegsmarine grenadier regiment.

    Late in the war, as the Kriegsmarine ran out of ships for its personnel to crew, the Wehrmacht formed two Kriegsmarine naval infantry divisions, with three grenadier regiments each. These divisions were completed with typical support battalions such as engineer, reconnaissance, artillery, etc. Both of them saw action against the Allies in northwestern Germany.

    Unteroffizier Rudolf Beutlhauser, a 24-year-old Stuka pilot KIA on January 9th, 1940.

    This one came with multiple newspaper clippings with detailed funeral information. I think that the time frame of his death, when German casualties were quite low, plus the fact that he was a pilot, probably caused the German newspapers in his hometown to go off the deep end with reporting it.

    Although he was killed by partisans, cards like this go to show that the word "terrorist" has been used for decades to mean 'enemies of the state'.
    Beg to differ, Mo. "Terrorangriff" refers to an Allied bomber raid.

    By the way, the Beutelhauser grouping mentions the mayor of Straubing, Josef Reiter, taking part in the funeral, also acting as the head of the SS delegation. We actually have a thread on him: Sta 31 Niederbayern portrait.

    I'll take the liberty to add the photo of your grouping to that.

    A sad reminder of the tragic loss of intelligentsia throughout the war:

    Schuetze Georg Hessenhofer, a doctorate student of philosophy, KIA 5.6.40 while leading a heavy mortar team in Saint Riquier, France, at the age of 28.

    He is buried at the German war cemetery in Bourdon, at Block 27 Reihe 9 Grab 349.
