• Soldbuch to Gefreiter Josef Forster. He joined the Heer in April 1941, serving at first with Landesschützen-Bataillon 442. In 1942 he joined the Festungs-Infanterie-Regiment 854 of the newly erected 344. Infanterie-Division in southern France (Bordeaux area). The 344.ID would later see action on the Western Front, but before that Forster had been transferred to other occupation units like the Landesschützen-Bataillone 408 and 970, the latter in Strasbourg.  
  • The Soldbuch is in good condition, with nice portrait photos, complete except for the awards page 21/22. Interesting entries include several captured French rifles and a long shooting list.
