• Award document grouping to Obergefreiter Albert Wronka. He first served with Korps-Nachrichten-Abteilung 454, part of the 54. Armeekorps on the Krim peninsula in 1942. During the autumn of that year, the 54.AK was transported to Leningrad, thousands of miles to the north. There, Wronka earned the EK2 in April 1943. By mid 1944, he served with Grenadier-Regiment Ostpreussen 3, aka Grenadier-Regiment 1144 of the newly formed 562. Grenadier-Division. He was quickly wounded with this unit fighting in Poland in August 1944, but appears to have survived the war.
