    Default WEHRPASS TO Daniel Rohleder.

    Hi Chaps, I need a bit of help with this wehrpass. I've managed to glean the following : -

    Wehrpass To Gefreiter Daniel Rohleder.
    Inf. Rgt. 503.
    Dated 31/10/1939.
    Born 10/05/1912 in Linderhausen, Ennepe-Ruhr-Kreis, Arnsberg, Nordrhein-Westfalen. Daniel joined the Army on 22/11/1940, training with 4.(E.M.G).Kp.Inf. Rgt. 22. On the 27/05/1940 he was transferred to 8(MG) Kp. Inf. Rgt. 503 under the 290 Inf. Div. He served with them in the invasion of France in 1940 and then on Eastern Front during Operation Barbarossa in 1941. He was awarded the Infanterie Sturmabzeichen (Infantry Assault Badge) in Silver on 01/09/1941. On the 13/09/1941 Daniel was Killed In Action at ????? during the later stages of the initial invasion of the Soviet Union.

    My questions are, can anyone make out the location where he was killed & what was his civilian occupation?

    Cheers,

    Richard.

    I can't make out the middle part of the location although it fell in the area of responsibility for Army Group North (16 Armee) in the area of Lake Ilmen (Ilmensee). Unfortunately he isn't listed in the Volksbund database.

    Hi hucks216, that's interesting info. Hopefully I can find a village or town near Lake Ilmen that ties in, Cheers, Richard.

    Hello Richard,
    Your write-up, well-laid out, seems to cover everything. I did take a blown-up copy of the place were he fell, as written in the Wehrpass, to a old German woman I know, who as a child learned sütterlin script. She gave me this - Ly*schleocro - I did try finding the place on google no luck. Perhaps you may be more adept than me. Good luck
