    This is interesting
    That's the standard form documenting his taking the service oath.

    I think this is a copy of his application letter/CV ?
    His CV, yes. In addition to the biographical data I had posted above, it tells us that he went to school for eight years and then became a farmhand at 15 years of age (which was not unusual in those days). His parents had run their inn at Gnadendorf since 1939.

    Johann was once a member of the Hitler Youth, but left it in 1939, because at that time there were "no particular activities" in the local HJ and for a lack of spare time due to his full-time job as a farmhand.

    The final sentence of the CV is interesting, as it is a request to join the police (rather than the SS).

    Thanks again for the information HPL, I do wonder if the Inn is still there !

    I am assuming he survived the war ????

    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

    Is it possible this guy was involved in the latter stages of the Battle of the Bulge, or in particular, Unternehmen Nordwind further south ?

    Cheers
