    In memory of my father who was in K-Einsatz, combat engagement, with the RAD in the Alps in 1945, of my grandfather who was with the IR 87 during campaign in France in 1940 and of my grand-uncle who served in the Gardegrenadierregiment Nr. 3 "Königin Elisabeth" and who was killed in action at Craonne, Chemin des Dames in France in 1917

    Maybe someone has an idea why an ink number was placed below the eyelet hole?

    This would be the soldiers laundry number - First letter of the soldiers last name, followed by the last 4 digits of their Army Service Number (ASN).

    Example: B-1234

    It's also stamped in the webbing on the interior of the liner.

    Hard to read from the photos, but if you can decipher the letter and numbers, you may be able to ID the soldier by searching it on the following site:

    Home | WWII US Army Enlistment Records

    In the "Search Records" field, type in the laundry number, and choose "Laundry Number" from the drop down to the right of the search field.
