Default Soldbuch 855 Grenadier regiment

Hi everyone !
I'd like to have more information about this soldbuch from a veteran of the ww1 with an NSKK cover, as i can see, he served in the landeschutz bataillon 581 and then in the Grenadier Regiment 855 in 44. There is nothing marked between the beegin of 1944 and august/september of the same year. Is it possible that it take part to the Invasion Front ?

Thanks by advance for all yours messages,
Cordially,





le soldbuch est cousue dans une pochette du NSKK.

Can you show page 3?

Landeschützen-bataillon 581 was in France in 1944.
Grenadier-Regiment 855 (344. ID) was destroyed in France in 1944.
According to Lexikon-der-Wehrmacht G.R.855 wasn't rebuild.
But on the internet sources say that late in the war the new regiments of 344.ID were re-named into G.R. 855 again.

Sure !
When he passed Gefreiter, he was already in the landesschutz bataillon 581 in april 44. And he fought in France during ww1 in the I.R. 119.

His Kst. R. Nr. is certified by an hospital in september, but not for a wound (see p. 12 and 15). So, hard to have proof of his presence in Normandie during august. Anyway, l./855 was the latest bataillon to join the front after mid august, southern of the Seine.

Here you show some receipt cards from the Landesversicherungsanstalt Sudentenland 1939/42

(old age assurance / disability insurance).

Quite an interesting Soldbuch, the first rifle he was issued was a captured french carbine. A Berthier M1916, german classification Karabiner 553(f).

Hi

it seems that he served in March/ April 1945 at the east front. The Lazarett Olmütz was in Poland.
The notice of the Sani was "dfg. z.Truppe" = "dienstfähig zur Truppe".

His Feldtruppenteil was Gren.Rgt.855. This unit was rebuilt in dezember 1944 under the 344. ID (new). The old 344.ID was renamed to Div. z.b.V. 606 in the end of Oktober 1944. Parts of the debris Gren.Rgt.855 taken to the new 855 with 857 and 331.
The 344.ID changed the front from Hürtgenwald at the end of 1944 to Tarnow/ Poland.
The staff and many parts of 344.ID and the subunits were from 91.LLD (ID).

Thanks for sharing. His name is now in my giant database about 91.LLD and 344.ID.
More than 4500 members are part of the database.

Cheers
Boris

Hi, Thank you all for this precisions about this soldbuch. I better understand the "travel" of this soldier.
If I summarize, he maybe fought during the retrait of the german army in France beetween mid august and mid september 1944.
Then he passed in a hospital for an accident. Then he return in his grenadier regiment from the new 344 ID witch fought in Poland at the end of the war.
