    Default Very interesting DAK paperwork group to a KIA Artillery Leutnant in November of 1941.

    This is a group of paperwork and EK II award document to Leutnant GŁnther Becker-Glauch, DAK Beob. Battr. (Pz) 326.

    DAK Beob. Battr. (Pz) 326 was with Art. Rgt. 33, 15th Panzer-Division in north Africa.

    Leutnant GŁnther Becker-Glauch was killed in action on the 28th of November 1941, he was hit him in the chest by shrapnel, and unfortunately for him,
    he was killed instantly.

    The EK II award document was presented on the 12th of October 1941, and signed by Rommel when he was a 'General der Panzertruppe'.

    A very poignant group, and the sad letter home to his parents relating his death, and the death notices in the local papers, with the mastheads, envelopes home etc.

    Cheers,


    Bob

    Leutnant GŁnther Becker-Glauch appears to have been killed during Operation Crusader in November 1941. (He was killed on the 28th of November)

    "On the night of 27 November Rommel had discussed with Cruewell plans for the next day indicating that his priority was to cut the Tobruk corridor and destroy the enemy forces fighting there. Cruewell, however, was concerned by the threat of the 7th Armoured Division tanks to the south and felt this needed attention first. 15th Panzer spent most of 28 November once more engaged with 4th and 22nd Armoured, and dealing with supply problems. Despite being outnumbered by two to one in tanks and at times immobile because of lack of fuel, 15th Panzer succeeded in pushing the British tank force back southwards while itself moving west."
