It's interesting that with such a seemingly serious wound that they would forget to give him a wound badge until 1936!



i am guessing he was released from the army before the Wound badge was created... in the years after the war noone was interested... only at the beginning of the 1930s , when folks in Germany started "uniforming up" again, that many applied for the wound badge... I have a few groups with Wound badges issued in the 1930s whwn the guys needed them for SA or NSKK or whatever uniforms..

This is an interesting group... it seems he was awarded the EK2... probably in error... as you can see, the dates refer not to when the document was signed, but the actual award.... I have no idea why this award to a Hessen man was done by the Württemberger...

Probably the regiment tooka part in the fight of the XIII.AK. In this time, the 25.Res.Div.(XVIII.RK), were neighbours to the 26.Inf.Div. (XIII.AK)

I think, I´ve found him here:
