Default Trying to get more details on my Grandfather's service

I'm trying to trace info on my grandfather's service record. I've put some scans on my site at My Granddad in WW2. If anyone here has any clues, please feel free to contact me- I'm waiting for a reply from WASt, but that may still take another six months or so.

So- what do I know about my family in WW2? Well, I know my grandfather (Josef Heinrich Brings , b 8 May 1910, d 20 May 1994) was in the 1.Gebirgs-Division (I do recall him saying this back in '82). I know he was a cook. I know that he was captured by the western Allies. I know that Onkel Hermann was in the Luftwaffe, and was captured by the Russians, only returning in 1955.
