• Soldbuch to Unterfeldwebel August Keck. This WWI veteran was called up again in January 1944 to serve with the Heeresverpflegungsdienststelle 878 in occupied France. In April 1944 he was treated by the Hauptverbandplatz of the 277.ID in the area of Narbonne. On August 8th, 1944 he fell of a stair and was transported to hospital again. While still in hospital, he was overran by the Allied invasion and captured on 31th of August 1944.
