Deathcard to Anton Engelmeier KIA 10.5.40 Rotterdam
Rare deathcard to Anton Englmeier, Killed in action in Rotterdam on 10 may 1940 during Fall Gelb. Anton Engelmeier served in 6. (MG)Kompanie Infanterie Regiment 72. It’s very rare to find any document relating to the 1940 invasion, especially dated 10.5.40. The deathcard says he was killed the 11th, but it is actually 10 may. He was first buried in the Krooswijk cemetery but was moved to Ysselsteyn later.
