    Default Help with Wehrpass entry.

    This young soldier was fortunate to survive service in the Afrika Korps but did not survive the war. After fighting in the DAK, he was later posted to the Peenemünde Army Research Center (Heeresversuchsanstalt Peenemünde).

    In another document sent to his parents that I have, his death is referred to as the "result of an accident" but no details are given in that letter as to what the accident entailed.

    The related entry in his Wehrpass I cannot make out. It may shed more light on what caused his death so I am hoping someone can decipher it. I read/write/speak German but am not a handwriting expert by any stretch.

    It says "Verätzung mit Natronlauge" = "chemical burn by caustic soda lye".

    (The next line is "Tod durch Kreislauf[...]" i.e. "Death by circulatory [...]", but I can't make out the last few letters. Could be "Kreislaufschwäche" = "circulatory insufficiency").
