US WWII SUBMARINE KIA Purple Heart Document & Medal Group - USS BARBEL

Poignant grouping to Plank holder crewmember of the submarine USS BARBEL, NJ Van Ringelesteyn. He  enlisted into the navy reserves in april 1943 in Detroit. After basic & submarine school, he was promoted to quarter master 3rd class & assigned to the newly build submarine U.S.S. Barbel based at New London ct. Barbel arrived at Pearl Harbor on 21 June 1944 and commenced preparation for her first war patrol. From 15 July 1944-4 February 1945, she carried out four war patrols and is officially credited with sinking six Japanese ships totaling 15,263 tons. Barbel departed Fremantle, Australia, on 5 January 1945 for the South China Sea on her fourth patrol. Late in January she was ordered to form a "wolfpack" with Perch and Gabilan and patrol the western approaches to Balabac Strait and the southern entrance to Palawan Passage. On 3 February, Barbel sent a message reporting that she had been attacked three times by enemy aircraft dropping depth charges and would transmit further information on the following night. Barbel was never heard from again. Japanese aviators reported an attack on a submarine off southwest Palawan on 4 February. Two bombs were dropped and one landed on the submarine near the bridge. The sub plunged, under a cloud of fire and spray. This was very likely the last engagement of Barbel. She was officially reported lost on 16 February 1945.

SOLDBUCH & Award Document Group Inf Rgt 196 + Panzerfaust Document
photos
Soldbuch, EK2 Award Document and Infnatry Assault Badge Award Document to Kurt BLAUL who served in Inf Rgt 196 of the 68 Infantry Division.  All awards entered into Soldbuch including the Ostmedaille.  What I really like is the document issued in 1944 which has a soldier holding a Panzerfaust - uncommon!  And first time I have seen this document. It is a thank you to soldiers from commander of a Heeresgruppe for his service on the East German border.
