    First one of this type of ISA doc I've seen. Even though it's a little beaten up. Stewy

    Apparently his wounds were to the head, neck, and groin. "Restu" is likely the burial place...
    fascinating reading...I assume "A.G." is either "Auf Grund" (due to) or "Artillerie Geschoss" (Artillery Projectile)...because then it lists the body parts.
    The document for the Infanterie Sturmabzeichen is a very nice unit-produced piece...you'd be hard-pressed to find another like it, as each unit had their own...
    cheers, Glenn

    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

    Never heard of Gut Restu mate , certainly not an Estonian name , i'll have to check to see if it is a German name for an Estonian location.

    21 ID was involved in the retreat through Southern Estonia towards Latvia in late summer 1944 and passed through Walk ( Valga ) which is an Estonian town on the Latvian border , presumably Gut restu must be in this area somewhere !!

    Thanks for the additional information...as you probably already know, a "Gut" in this case is referring to a "Gutshof", meaning a type of Farming Estate. I believe the entry is referring to the "Restu Farm/Estate" as his burial place...With this new info in mind I've had to change my above post significantly...
    I really like this grouping, thanks for showing!
    cheers, Glenn

    No I didn't know that Glenn, thanks for that. I'd love to find his Ost doc. Chances are slim though. Stewy
