Monte Cassino EK2 to Fallschirmjager NCO.

Recommended Posts


A classic 2nd Class Iron Cross award document for Monte Cassino to Obergefreiter Viktor Wollner of 3./Fallschirmj?ger-Regiment 1. Wollner was a member of the FJR1?s 1st Battalion. The document bears the stamp of 1. Fallschirmj?ger-Division and the stamp signature of the divisional commander Richard Heidrich. It has been folded over twice, indicating that it was carried in the recipient?s paybook.

That's a facsimile signature but here's a manuscript version. I think Viktor Wollner probably survived the war as there is nobody of that name listed KIA in 1944 or 1945 or as having died in 1946.
