    I'm working on a project covering an soldier who died in Scharnhorst on 26 December, 1943.  Would his EKM have Scharnhorst and his service number, or his Name and service Number, or just Service number?

    Hi, So I guess this is a bit of a loaded question.  It would depend. 

    The Serial number and such would have been when and where the sailor was inducted into the  Reichsmarine or Kriegsmarine.  The Physical locations.  N being Northsee and O being Ostsee. for example.

    Chances are, that this sailor would have been assigned to a unit or schule before being assigned to the Scharnhorst.


    Best Regards
