    Hi Santi.

    Here is the information for one of the soldiers.

    Name: Joachim Fischbach
    Rank: Leutnant der Reserve
    Birth Date: 22 December 1913
    Birth Place: Niesbaden-Bieberich
    Military Unit: 9./Kompanie Infanterie Regiment 87
    Death Date: 14 June 1940
    Death Place: Straße Zwischen Bethincourt und Malancourt (road berween Bethincourt and Malancourt)

    His cause of death is noted as Gefallen: Infanterie Geschuß Kopf (Killed in action: Infantry shot head)

    Joachim Fischbach is buried in the military cemetery in Andilly, France.
    Endgrablage: Block 15 Reihe 7 Grab 522.

    It looks like Joachim may have been posthumously promoted to Oberleutnant according to his Volksbund entry.

    Unfortunately I couldn't positively identify Obergefreiter Messner.

    Kind regards

    Will.
