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.
