• Grouping to Leutnant Fritz Vogt, who was killed in action on June 20th, 1940 in Châtel-sur-Moselle, north of Epinal, France. After two prewar years of service with the schwere Kompanie of Aufklärungs-Abteilung 6, he joined Aufklärungs-Abteilung 179 of the 79. Infanterie-Division in October 1939. Within weeks of the arrival of his unit on the Westwall, he was awarded the EKII - only very rarely awarded for the "Sitzkrieg" fighting against the French! A few months later, he was promoted to Leutnant. His promising military career would end promptly on the boards of the Moselle river.    
  • A few days after his EK2 award, a letter from his Schwadronchef congratulates him with the excellent building of his defensive position in the Westwall . This letter also proves that Vogt was in command of the "Panzer-Späh-Zug" within the "Verstärkte schwere Schwadron", the armoured component of his recon unit.  
  • Along the Wehrpass (excellent and complete condition, uniform portrait photo) and forementioned letter, the group includes his promotion document, a letter to the parents regarding his grave, an extra portrait photo and fourteen Feldpost letters he received from several girls. Some were sent during the last weeks of his life, the last one was shipped on 8th of June.
