Default What was the fate of this Obergefreiter?

Hello everyone,
Can you help me know the fate of this soldier?
Did he survive the war?
The whole mask and case is rests untouched.
Thank you in advance for your help.
Fred

You can try to find out by posting the field post number in Orders of battle and individual research forum.

The name is Schütze Math. Ach, so I would bet for Mathias Ach.

But the Feldpostnummer is not for the 2. Kompanie, III. Bataillon, IR 10.

The 2. Kompanie of the III. Btl would have the 9th company. The 2./IR 10 have had the Feldpostnummer 12528 until 1940 and since then 21997 C.

The number on the can is 28874, that was the Kommando 10. Infanterie-Division.

Strange label. Can you post a better pic of the label on the gas mask strap?

Bye
FRank

As both names show dots, both are shortenend. So could not be "Ach". Makes it nearly impossible to find out the complete name.

Good evening,
Thanks a lot for your help.
Here, but the marking is a little hidden by the seam.

Like Hoover says. The Feldpostnumber does not match with the unit.
From the picture the paper looks very new. Was it added after the war?
I have doubts.
