114 photos.  All from man who, by the end of the war, was serving in the rare unit -  32. SS-FREIWILLIGEN-GRENADIER-DIVISION 30 JANUAR.  Named to Rottenfuehrer Kurt GUTSCHE. He was an older soldier (39 at time of his death in 1945), probably serving earlier in the war in behind the line duties but throuwn into action at the end.  It is also likely that he served previously with SS Kampfgruppe SCHILL, which was later absorbed in the Division and earlier shared the same Feldpost Nummer.
