  4. Hi Eric.  By good fortune I have the soldbuch (plus award certificates/awards) of Dieter Edmond Bonisch.  I notice your post back in 2015 had a very interesting report on him,. Is there any chance you can email me that particular report?  dereklhicks@hotmail.com.  Thanks in anticipation.  Regards Derek

  5. Hi Bart, Why not showing the young man's face / uniform portrait photo, that is shown on the other side. I do know that it is there..... Best regards Eric-Jan
  6. Hi Bart, That was one of my favorites too. Yes he did serve with the Granatwerferzug of 4.Kompanie = 4./Grenadier-Regiment 423 of the 212. Volksgrenadier-Division. As shown on his weapon training page (page 20), and his death notice in the newspaper. Best regards Eric-Jan
  7. Bart, Yes my friend that were my guys you are showing us here. I do hope that you like them as much as I did. The men who fought at Berdorf and the parc hotel are my favorites. And the men who did earn their EK2 and EK1 for the Bulge. Best regards Eric-Jan
  8. Dear Bart, I was not able to find any further information about Riebler's fate after his missing entry on page 34. May I ask you where you did find the information that he was taken pow and died in 2014. As you bought his Wehrpaß from me in 2016 you couldn't contact him earlier.... Best regards Eric-Jan
