• Soldbuch to Obergefreiter Max Finzel. This Leipzig born professional driver served with the Kriegsmarine from early 1942. Some of his more interesting deployments include the Marine-Flak-Abteilung 224 (heavy 10,5 cm batteries in Hademarschen), the Marine-Flak-Abteilung 254 also in the Heimat, and then from the summer of 1944 he was sent to Italy with the 32. Marine-Kraftfahrabteilung. He served there as a driver in the port of Genua (Genova), entered the Marinelazarett Genua early April 1945 with genital problems, and finally taken POW while still in an Italian hospital one month later.
