- Soldbuch to Unteroffizier Heinz Marcioch. First issue from September 1939. Originally drafted by the Heer, this Gelsenkirchen born laborer joined the Luftwaffe in 1940. After training with the Kampfliegerschule 4 in Thorn and a Kampfbeobachter school, Marcioch was allowed into the Kampfgeschwader 27 "Boelcke" in 1941. After the start of Barbarossa, the KG27 was moved from its Battle of Brittain positions in France to the Eastern Front. There, Marcioch quickly assembled a large number of "Feindflüge" (enemy missions) and awards: the EKII and Frontflugspange in September 1941, the EKI and Beobachterabzeichen in November 1941, adding to a total of six awards, including two earlier shooting awards.
- On March 26th, 1942, Heinz Marcioch was on board the Heinkel He 111 H-6 with marking "1G+GM" of his Staffelkapitän Oblt. Kurt Hartwig, 4./KG27. The airplane was shot down in the area of Staraja Russa (south of the Ilmensee), and the crew was never found. Marcioch is still reported as MIA on the Volksbund grave database.
- The Soldbuch is a 100% complete and in very good condition. A portrait photo was never inserted at this earlier stage of the war.
