    According to the FP.-Nr. 20045 A (letter), Hans Mauckner was in the 14th company, Grenadier Regiment 423 when he was MIA.
    The post war tracing service of the German Red Cross does not list him for that unit as MIA anymore.
    Very strange, because on this memorial he is still listed as MIA.

    Hope this link works for the DRK search site.

    It is amazing how millions of people simply ceased to exist and no record of what happened... Is there a way to find out his home address before the war ?

    Hello Amberg,

    Would it be another Hans Mauckner on the Offenheim city memorial?
    He was taken POW by the US Army and he sure was able to contact his family through the IRC with the typical "I'am taken POW"- postcard.
    Some names are very common in certain villages.


    Cheers,
    Peter

    Yes, his war time address is in the Soldbuch, I never post those pages in my threads.

    Hello Peter,

    No, I don't think so.
    There is no other Hans Mauckner listed in the birth records of the protestant church for this period/city. Or anything similar.
    The strange thing is that his christian name was Johannes, not Hans as in the Soldbuch.
    If I can find out more, I'll let you know.
    Thanks
    Wolfgang

    Neat investigative work you're doing! I'm continually surprised by how inconsistent German authorities were with full names and common nicknames. If searching for war graves or WWI Verlustlisten, it's always a matter of searching for both "Fritz" and "Friedrich," etc.

    Always looking for any information on the 97th Light Infantry (Jäger) Division, 1940-1945.
