A few years ago, my uncle died and I came across a number of German photos and two post office receipts. I have managed to vaguely piece together a little history from both. There were two brothers, Heinrich and Hans Loden who joined different units with the outbreak of war. Heinrich joined Kompanie Panzerabwehr-Abteilung 654. formed on 26 August 1939 in Bremen in the Cambrai-Kaserne. Google Translate His brother Hans joined Landesschützen-Bataillon XVII/XII Mobilised on 26. August 1939 in Mainz Landesschützen-Bataillone - Lexikon der Wehrmacht From the fieldpost number it can be seen that he was in the 2nd company. From the fieldpost receipts, it can be seen that Heinrich sent home 200 Reichmarks to his Father Johann Loden who was a farmer living in Rhade http://i86.photobucket.com/albums/k83/Taffnp/stuff/perm1.jpg The second receipt is for sending 35 Reichmarks to his brother Hans. This was either sent by his Father or Heinrich himself. http://i86.photobucket.com/albums/k83/Taffnp/stuff/perm2.jpg Parents back home ? http://i86.photobucket.com/albums/k83/Taffnp/stuff/maids.jpg His nephew. On the back was written 'In memory of your small nephew Hermann' http://i86.photobucket.com/albums/k83/Taffnp/stuff/pic16.jpg I believe that this is a photo of Heinrich Loden. Looks as if he was a motorcyclist who posed on a Char B tank in the battle for France. http://i86.photobucket.com/albums/k83/Taffnp/stuff/pic14.jpg Believe this is a French truck http://i86.photobucket.com/albums/k83/Taffnp/stuff/pic3.jpg Not sure where this was taken. Upon closer inspection, you can see that a number of French trucks are being used, the two on the far left. Also these have a key painted on them. This symbol is adopted by the city of Bremen, from where the unit originated. http://i86.photobucket.com/albums/k83/Taffnp/stuff/pic4-1.jpg Key of Bremen.

Jäger-Division From the theatres in which this unit and 654 fought and a later photo, I believe the following photos were taken in Yugoslavia. Group photo, well clothed for cold weather. http://i86.photobucket.com/albums/k83/Taffnp/stuff/pic5-1.jpg Partisans, or retribution for a partisan action ? http://i86.photobucket.com/albums/k83/Taffnp/stuff/pic13.jpg http://i86.photobucket.com/albums/k83/Taffnp/stuff/pic10.jpg http://i86.photobucket.com/albums/k83/Taffnp/stuff/pic6.jpg On the back of the photos was some writing shooting in Serbia. On the back of this one was written, Prisoners in Serbia http://i86.photobucket.com/albums/k83/Taffnp/stuff/pic12.jpg Only 1 photo has a date on it which is 1941. I wrote to the BundesArchiv who informed me that Heinrich survived the war and died in 1996. Would be grateful if anyone could add any details about the units etc.
