    Arthur Alfred Kern was not recovered during our re-interment activities. The planned transfer to the collective cemetery in Rossoschka was, therefore, unfortunately not possible. His name is recorded in a particular place in the aforementioned cemetery.

    Kind regards,

    Will.

    Thank you Willmore for finding his casualty card. In the location of the grave am I right in reading that he was buried in a communal grave, third from the left?

    My pleasure BC.

    You are spot on about the communal grave (Kameradengrab).

    I had another search and found casualty cards for Wilhelm Seidenspinner and Robert Rümer (who Arthur was buried between). All three men were in the same unit and died in the crash.
