Wonderful material. I would guess that he did not then survive beyond the last image, but that's just a guess.
Very nice display as ever and much worth the examination for the benefit of all.
My thoughts exactly on the probable sad outcome of this soldier. Given the posting he was likely to receive and junior officer status I would say survival was slim. As for empirical evidence ...the card date dated 1941 has the inscription "my brother" and then his name so I guess the family may have added this last formal picture of him.
Dear Colleague, thanks. Your work here with the photo albums embodies the best material on this site. It is very powerful and informative.
Who knows what his contribution would have been in peace and prosperity had he lived. Baden today is such a peaceful, prosperous and nice place.
thanks again for all your effort, FB

This was a great post. Thanks for sharing. I found it by searching for threads containing the term "Baden" as I recently acquired a Baden Police Bayonet from what appears to be the 1930s. I know it's a long shot, but I wonder if any of your photos from the album might have one of these rare "bayonets" in them. I've yet to see a period photo of these in use. Thanks again!
