Wow that's an interesting grouping...Maybe someone can translate the page written in Kurzschrift/Shorthand for us...Those guns were monstrous...
A very nice group Stewy!
Quite a bit of documentation for one person still together.
Searching for anything relating to, Anton Boos, 934 Stamm. Kp. Pz. Erz. Abt. 7, 3 Kompanie, Panzer-Regiment 2, 16th Panzer-Division (My father)
Indeed Glenn, hopefully someone can or would be kind enough to. Batterie 765 was armed with two 28cm K5 (E) guns with a range of 69-ish kilometres. Deployed around Coquelles/Calais area. Stewy
Seeing it reminded me instantly of my 5th & 6th Grade Teacher when I went to German School, Johann Diehlmann...He was a Wehrmacht Veteran and would use Kurzschrift in his grade-book...
Another nice group Stewy

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
