    Default Help Needed on Soldbuch

    Hello Everyone:

    I recently got this soldbuch and I'm not to sure on any of the information in it but my German isn't great at all so I would like to know any information on this guy. If anyone out there could take some time and translate it for me I would be very thankful. I have the reference book "Papers Please! by Ray and Josephine Cowdery" but It only helped me a bit because of my lack of german skills.

    The scans are not the greatest, but it is all I could do for the time being. If you can give me any info from these that would be great!

    Thanks
    Cody

    Scans may be out of order..

    Image 2 shows such things as the Soldbuch issue serial number, blood group and dogtag number. Image 2 is personal details (top half) and when the SB was opened & by what unit (bottom). Image 3 is his pay group. Image 4 are his units, those in Section C being the Regular units with those in Sections B & D being the training and replacement units. On the opposite page are his family details. And the last image is a kit issue.

    The sites linked here http://www.warrelics.eu/forum/soldbu...uments-159156/ will help showing what the various parts are.

    He was killed in 1942. See attached entry for him in the Volksbund Database.

    His units were Kavallerie-Ersatz-Abteilung 11 - http://www.lexikon-der-wehrmacht.de/...klErsAbt11.htm

    Can't quite make out the first unit in Section C but looks ike Feldersatz Btl 45
    The two below that are Aufklärungs-Abteilung 45 and Radfahr-Abteilung 45 of the 45 Infanterie Division - http://www.lexikon-der-wehrmacht.de/...45-R.htm#Aufkl & http://www.lexikon-der-wehrmacht.de/...ionen/45ID.htm

    Thanks Everyone!! I've quite a few more documents I could use translated and people could use for reference. I just haven't had the time as of late to get things scanned. Where does it say in his Soldbuch that he was a KIA in 42'

    Also, could you send me a link to the info you found about Josef? I tried to look it up myself but the website wasn't working well for me. Thanks! Cody

    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

    It doesn't. Usually the soldiers fate isn't entered in the Soldbuch. That sort of information is usually entered into his Wehrpass.

    As far as the information, this is the Volksbund Website that contains the database. You have to register to use it but if you have zero knowledge of German than you may well struggle doing so...
    http://www.volksbund.de/graebersuche.html
    And this is the Lexikon site (you'll need to use a Google translator to read the entries)... http://www.lexikon-der-wehrmacht.de/...rzeichnis1.htm
