    This week I was able to add a different grouping of Dethlefs's Panzerjäger unit from a man who was also trained as a Funker. There are also unit entries in both passes that were clearly done by the same hand.

    Gefreiter Emil Stricker (1907) was drafted in August 1943 and in March 1944 he was transferred to the Fla Kompanie 338 and subsequently the 3./Panzerjäger-Abteilung 338 in early November 1944. He was awarded the KVKII in January 1945. Unfortunately he died on September 26th 1945 in captivity in Mülhausen/Mulhouse, aged 38.

    Stricker and Dethlefs were in the exact same unit as a Funker. It is therefore possible that they knew each other.

    Looking for Soldbücher and Wehrpässe of the 212. ID/VGD, 245. ID, 256. ID/VGD, 338. ID and Flieger-Regiment 51.


      What a great grouping! A touching and sad story, however extremely well presented here.
      Very interesting to read, makes you almost feel going back in time yourself.
      Looking for documents and photos of the:

      6. Ersatz Marine Artillerie Abteilung
      24. Schiffs Stamm Abteilung
      Grenadier Ersatz Bataillon 154
