Here is a Soldbuch in my collection to a Obergefreiter who was killed in an aerial attack on 10.April 1945 while serving in the Stab of s.Pz.Abt.511

Soldbuch is a Zweitschrift, issued on 9.July 1943 through the Werkstatt Kompanie/s.Pz.Abt.502 to Richard Wrchlavsky who was born on 09.Feb.1921 in Kuniowitz, Kreise Mies. Notice the quality and detail of the blackletter handwriting used when initially filling in the Soldbuch – no doubt a lot of time was put into filling this one out, and it is one of the nicest I have seen.

Wrchlavsky was awarded the KVK.II with swords on 26.December 1942, the black wound badge on 25.January 1943 and the Panzerkampfabzeichin in Silver on 06.April 1943, all through s.Pz.Abt.502 and all earned no doubt through the recovery and repair of the Abteilung’s Tigers, more often than not (and confirmed by the award of the PAB in silver) under intense enemy fire.

Wrchlavsky continued to serve with the Wkst.Kp of s.Pz.Abt.502 through the remainder of 1943, all of 1944 and into 1945, when on 10.January s.Pz.Abt.502 was re-designated s.Pz.Abt.511.

According to two accompanying documents found inside the rear flap of Wrchlavsky’s Soldbuch, as of 14.March 1945 Wrchlavsky was receiving training on the Tiger (by this point most certainly the Tiger II) in Panzer-Lehrgänge "Tiger" and as of 23.March 1945 Wrchlavsky had been transferred to the Stabskompanie of s.Pz.Abt.511 which at this time was stationed in Germany at Sennelager, Paderborn while the 1., 2. and 3. Kompanies, by then reduced to small scratch units consisting of Tiger IIs (and in the case of the 1.Kp - Hetzers) were fighting off overwhelming and constantly advancing Soviet forces around Königsberg and Fischhausen.

Entries on pages 12/13 confirm that on 10.April 1945 Wrchlavsky was admitted to Reserve-Lazarett Goldberg near Lauterburg with wounds sustained from an enemy (allied) aerial attack (code 31d) from which he died at 16:00 hours that same day. An entry at the bottom of page 15 confirms Wrchlavsky’s death, entered 18.April 1945. The first date appears to be 16.April, but I believe this is actually "10" - this more than likely explains why the date of 16.April is entered on page 01 when Wrchlavsky's Soldbuch was closed out.
