Erkennungsmarke from Fritz Zoppke, born in Mittenwalde 6.5.96, Ers.Abteilung 2. Garde-Feldartillerie-Regiment 1. Batterie Nr. 9/174 and later transferred to 4. E.B. FAR 268 Nr. 71.

This ID disc was found by my grandfather in the fields near Geluveld (Flanders), where FAR 268 had its positions in 1916-1917.

The guy lived until the 1970s (I wrote once to the commune of Mittenwalde to see whether he was killed during the war).

Karl Recht was killed in action on april 19, 1917 near Ailles, France, "Chemin des Dames" (extract from the historic of the 4 GRzF) :

I had applied for research to Deutsche Dienststelle (Krankenbuchlager) and they had learnt me that he had been twice hospitalised (wounds or illness?) at September-October, 1914 and the end of September, 1915. At that time, he was Gefreiter :

This dog tag was found about 20 kilometers in the rear of the front. Today, this man still don't have grave because he was buried in "Cerny" cemetery (near Ailles) which was destroyed at the end of 1917.
