Another EKII spange document that I just received with the spange. This document is interesting as it has on the back the citation, which says (I hope translated properly):

Stabsarzt (Surgeon Major/staff physician) Dr. Lohmann during the military operation of the Bataillon dated 7.6.1940 in the northern edge of Soissons with exemplary tranquillity during a street fight under enemy fire did his job and could help heavily wounded (comrades) in a difficult situation.

Signed by: Generalleutnant Theodor Freiherr von Wrede, winner of the Knight's Cross of the Iron Cross.

A couple of certs to Ernst Schlett of Schwere Artillerie Abteilung 841.

The EKII award is signed by General Robert Martinek of XXXIX Panzerkorps.

Ernst Schlett, born 04/10/1911, is reported as missing around the Brody/Knaize/Kosin areas (a pretty big area) as of 01/06/1944 in the memorial book of Potylicz Cemetery. (Martinek himself was killed later that same month in the surprise Soviet Offensive Operation Bagration)

The only actions I can find on that date is around the Jassy area. Does anybody have any further details on Ernst Schlett or can you point me in the right direction. Would be nice to put some background to him and 2. and 3.Artl.Abt.841

Nice example. While he is listed as MIA as of 1st June 1944 this date is just a general one taken as the last known recorded data about him. He could of gone missing days or weeks later - and I believe that he would of probably been caught up and killed during Operation Bagration (hence him being around Brody).

    • Two years down the line.   My mother-in-law passed away this summer, as did one of her sisters-in-law.   My exhibition opened, and we had a marvellous speakers' night with four Peacekeeping veterans, including a Meritorious Service Medal winner.  But Covid closed it down in March 2020, and while still there it hasn't reopened.
    • Sounds great other than the Orange & Mango squash only because I prefer cran-pomegranate juice.
    • "(...) disgusting herbal concoction (...)" I took note of this description, to enrich my otherwise limited, English "Wortschatz"...
    • At work the standard indian tea such as PG tips is referred to as chimp tea. This goes back to the days when we had a Spanish girl working for us whose command of the English language was extremely limited. One lunch she said she was going to the shop could she get anything. I asked if she could get a pack of tea bags. She returned with some disgusting herbal concoction. I tried to explain what was required but without success. I then remembered PG tips had a picture of a chimpanzee on the packe
    • When I read Lapsang Souchong i decided to post something about these Tea . Many years ago I dont  know about Lapsang until I read James Michener book Centennial and the description of the savour of the Lapasang as a mix of tar and salt & smoked made me proof . It was exact ! and i liked it since then .
