- Wehrpass to Gefreiter Franz Absalon. He joined the Luftwaffe early 1940 and eventually served as a Funker in the 2. (H.) Staffel of Aufklärungsgruppe 23 during the second part of the French campaign. He stayed in France afterwards, but came to his end in a tragic way. A fire broke out while he was in the barracks of the Luftnachrichten-Abteilung (H) mot. 1 in Auvers-Saint-Georges, near Etrechy, south of Paris, on the night of 12th to 13th of December 1940. Absalon jumped from a window during this fire, but did not survive the fall.
