thought i would share this here. any interpretation help would be nice. i have this posted on 2 other forums. if i get translations i will update them here. here is what i got so far.
He was awarded:

  • (can´t read)
  • Iron Cross 2nd class
  • Wound Badge silver
  • Wound Badge gold

He was wounded:

  • shrapnel lower thigh (Sept. 11 1941)
  • wounded by handgrenade, mine or artillery (code 31b, entries March 23, 29.(?), April 2 43)
  • wounded 31b again (Sept. 11 1943)
  • shrapnel right forearm (probably linked to the entry before, Sept. 11 43)
  • something lower thigh, hard to read (Jan. 25 1944)
  • shrapnel left cheek (March 31 1944)


The short note, dated Dec. 11 1940, confirms he is left-handed.

never mind i think it was not loaded right. ok i do not read german so if you translate the page it distorts the names. leave it in german it is correct.

These two pages show some items he was issued and his immunizations (shots)....The left page has gasplane (gas sheet). 2 verbandspackonen (first aid packs) along with 2 packages of ointment(?)....Further down is gasraumprufung which is likely testing of the gas mask in a type of chamber....Somewhat odd considering the war would be over in another nine months....Unless the Germans expected gas to be used by the allies or themselves....The first shot is small pox, second one is typhus, and the fourth Cholera...Bodes
