    Nice additions !
  5. Note also that Sich. Batl. 701 and 791 were probably the same unit, in fact (after transformation or simply renumbering), as shown here buy the same number of Kriegs St. Rolle. (p. 12).
  6. Interesting document with unusual entries. This guy was probably mature for Bandenkpf. Abz. !
  7. Nice exemple, also ! I like it. And you are right : there is many stupidity in collection. We can see many examples each month.
  8. Yes, I am lucky (at least for this time) ! I never understood why so many documents groups (even great) are splittered ? Only for increasing value ?
  9. Hello all Time goes by and there is not much again on this forum ! Here is a little documents group I was able, by chance, to bring together. I owned the Soldbuch since many years, very simple and not very filled, of a joung soldier of 326.ID who was wounded in Normandie, probably during last days of july or first days of august 44. As usual, date of entry in hospital gave only a rough idea of the date of wound. But last year, I discovered some others documents with a medal on a german dealer website. These give now another dimension ! Of particular interest are the little wounded paper card, the 10. Pz SS Div. medical document, and the unusual award document for wound. His unit, Gren. Regt. 751, was badly scattered western of Caen from the 30 july after the begining of the british offensiv named "Bluecoat". The 326.ID was near completly destroyed there, and only the intervention of 21. Pz Div. and later 9. and 10. SS Div. Kpfgr. can avoid the complete drilling of the german front. This soldier was one of the thousand casualties . His injury was so seroius that he never came back to a unit, staying in hospital until june 45. But he received only the black badge, who is not entered in his Soldbuch. The two last papers concern the time of garrison in the north of France. Comments are welcome, of course.
  10. Hi all What a nice serie of Fj. documents ! I really love those related to my center of interest or not far away (Brest !). So, back to Normandie with this one : a single doc for Erdkpf. Abz. d. Lw, awarded after Normandie battle : interesting edition by Maximilian Verlag, interesting unit and nice signature !
  11. Very nice additions for your favorit unit. Congratulations, especialy of course for the RK set !
  12. Yes, nice one. Interesting unit and field.
  13. There is no strict impossibility to be an american POW number, written without its "31 G" serial index. Its not common, it's true, but it can exist. IMO, this 810.... number can be a french one. Not sure, of course. Others allied also used a numering comparable but without any index. During sommer 44 and later, their registration number are hard to distinguish.
