    Thanks Will, the info is printed and stored with the card.

    A little unhandy, replying on my phone, but my CEO here, at home, says she needs the pc. How annoying...
    The more I look at the Gebirgjäger picture, the more I realise it was quite a business those days, touching-up photographs and portrets. Photoshop by hand of an artist! Thanks for showing. Right now I am browsing through my album to find out of I have more examples.

    Before the days of photoshop we used to touch up or “clean up” issues/blemishes etc on photographs by carefully scratching away the top surface of the photograph before painting or patching using various shades of black/grey paint. A skill I have not had to use for many years now

    I love to see the experts at shows like The Repair Shop. A lot of these old tricks just seem to have been forgotten. Although I never had the guts to clean up a dirty death notice or a piece of paper. The chance that I ruin it is more likely than the possibility of adding value to the item. But a lot of the old restorer tricks are worth noting. Like something as simple as removing an old layer of paint without damaging the underlying layer of paint with a copper coin. Never heard of it before, but it turned out to work great for me!

    This Sterbebild from Leopold Ertl always intrigued me. It is a rather simple and well-thumbed notice, but the picture is almost a drawing. I hope to find this one again in better condition.
    Leopold Ertl was a Rottenführer in a Motorisierten SS-Einheit, he was granted the EK2, Infanterie-Sturmabzeichen, Wound Badge and the Ostmedaille.

    On December 18, 1943, he met his fate at the Eastern Front, like so many other young men.

    The Litzen look as though they have been touched up and the background behind his left ear has been masked for some reason also. But a good example for sure.

    Hi Martin. It is an interesting example and I agree with both you and BC.

    Name: Leopold Ertl
    Rank: SS Rottenführer
    Birth Date: 23 April 1923
    Birth Place: Medernberg Deggendorf
    Military Unit: Stabskompanie./SS Panzer Grenadier Regiment 40
    Death Date: 18 December 1943
    Death Place: Moschna/Russl

    No cause of death is noted.

    Leopold Ertl was not recovered during our re-interment activities. The planned transfer to the collective cemetery in Schatkowo, Belarus was, therefore, unfortunately not possible. His name will be recorded in the cemetery's memorial book.

    Kind regards,

    Will.

    Thanks again for the extra data, Willmore.
    So the poor guy's remains are missing, as far as we know. I hope he once will be recovered and reburied at a descent place.
    With every card a new tragedy pops up I guess...

    My pleasure Martin.

    Often German cemeteries were destroyed as the Russians took back territory, so it is likely that he is still in his original burial location. The casualty card says he was buried in the Heldenfriedhof Bobruisk, Feld 10, Grab 197 (Hero Cemetery in Bobruisk, field 10, grave 197). I agree with you there.

    Information about the Gebirgsjägerschule Hermann was with -

    The Gebirgsjägerschule Mittenwald was established on 01.10.1942.
    In this school were integrated:
    * the Gebirgsschießschule in Solbad Hall and
    * the Heeres-Hochgebirgsschule at Fulpmes.

    The Gebirgsschießschule at Solbad Hall became the Lehrgruppe I (teaching group I) in the new Gebirgsjägerschule Mittenwald.

    The Heeres-Hochgebirgsschule at Fulpmes became Lehrgruppe III (teaching group III) in the new Gebirgsjägerschule Mittenwald.

    The Gebirgsjägerschule Mittenwald then consists of:

    * Kommandostab (Command Staff)
    * Lehrgruppe I (Gebirgsschießschule / Mountain Shooting School)
    * Lehrgruppe II (Führung und Gefecht / Leadership and Combat)
    * Lehrgruppe III (Heeres-Hochgebirgsschule / Army High Mountain School)
    * Gebirgsjäger-Lehrbataillon / Mountain Infantry Teaching Battalion

    In summer 1944, the entire school was transferred to Florenz (Italy, Firenze) for security duties. The Gebirgsjäger Lehrbataillon was mainly used for partisan fighting. In Mittenwald there was a second school, the Hochgebirgsschule Mittenwald (Hochgeb.schule Mittenwald). This school, too, was transferred to Italy in summer 1944 as a security garrison for the Apennines and with the express prohibition of combat front deployment.
