Bavarian Krätzchen ... sometimes you are lucky.....

Recommended Posts

Was doing some casual surfing while on the road and found this.... Unfortunately there is no first name for the soldier... just a note saying "The cap of George B. s Father 1914-1918" From the other bits of paper it seems George B was born in 1917 and committed suicide at the age of 66 after telling his wife that he was suffering unbearable pain from an incurable ailment. He drowned himself in a river, the body was found by a 12 year old boy.

I always say we do not collect items, we collect the life stories of other people....m3.thumb.jpg.a74ecfd8673a4e9cb7e0748b348e56aa.jpgm2.thumb.jpg.5ef517372cca8ff34b26fbede298268d.jpgm1.thumb.jpg.0939e78f8dc59fc7ea2e1e2a2aabaac3.jpg

An interesting bit of history, albeit a sad event. You are so correct in that we tend to collect the life stories of others. Thanks for sharing this and, in that, helping to keep his memory alive.

Regards

Brian
