    Throughout his service he was awarded the black wound badge. One the info I could find he served with 8th Company, Panzer Regiment 15. I’m unsure of what type of tank he served in or what position he operated. On February 13th 1943 he was killed in action at Alexandrowka and is buried in Konstantinowka by Donezk, Ukraine. Any additional info on him would be greatly appreciated if possible.

    There are two additional versions of his death card on file:

    His home town had me stumped as I had thought it might be in Silesia/Poland as many of the personnel from Pz Rgt 15 would have been drawn from that part of the World. The handwriting on the other card makes it a bit easier to read.

    Thought shall be the harder , heart the keener,
    Courage the greater as our strength faileth.
    Here lies our leader ,in the dust of his greatness.
    Who leaves him now , be damned forever.
    We who are old now shall not leave this Battle,
    But lie at his feet , in the dust with our leader
