Award document grouping to Obergefreiter Anton Kagerhuber, a Fallschirmjäger fighting in the Nijmegen area in Holland, 1944. It consists of four pieces:  

  • Deutsche Schutzwall-Ehrenzeichen award document, facsimile signed by Staatsminister Otto Meissner. Awarded for his RAD service on the Westwall in 1940.  
  • EK2 Award document, issued by Oberstleutnant Harry Herrmann of the 6. Fallschirmjäger-Division. Kagerhuber earned the award while fighting the Allies with Fallschirm-Aufklärungs-Abteilung 12, part of Kampfgruppe Herrmann in the Nijmegen area. 
  • Verwundetenabzeichen in Schwarz award document, issued by the Reservelazarett Salzwedel for a wound sustained on 27th of September 1944. Kagerhuber's unit is given as Fallschirm-Flak-Regiment 11, but this is undoubtly a mistake: this unit fought in Italy at that time, but: members of the "normal" Luftwaffe Flak-Regiment 11 were absorbed into Kampfgruppe Herrmann in 1944. At the time of his wound, Kampfgruppe Herrmann was fighting in the Dutch-German border area between Erlecom and Groesbeek, east of Nijmegen.  
  • POW Discharge document. 

Very interesting FJ grouping to the fighting in Holland, 1944. Anton Kagerhuber survived the war and died in Neuhausen near München, 1997.
