Particularly interesting is the unit mentioning of "Ski-Bataillon 168", a short lived name for the divisional Aufklärungs-Abteilung. He was wounded with the Füsilier-Bataillon 168 in the Beskiden mountains in August 1944. Finally released from hospital late January 1945, he then joined Grenadier-Regiment 1313, part of the 156.

In April 1945, the Heeresgruppe Weichsel was fighting in the Battle of Seelow Hights, and later the Battle for Berlin - the 156.ID was not trapped in the Halbe pocket.
