Hello!

Rather bizarre, but anyway:

http://www.vejenkunstmuseum.dk/Dansk/samlingen/nhj/mindesten/vis_nhjmindesten.php?sten=214

Quite a number in a small town

Maybe your Claus?

This one fell in Serbia 1918, WW1.

-------------------------------------


I'm not at all sure, but I think i've heard (You know) that my former wife Susanne Voss's grandfathers fader fled Germany to avoid serving. He obsiosly survived, walking at hights, and eating turnips which he cut with his bayonet.

That tells us things:
One, that he already had been draftet (bayonet), that he probably wore uniform (at night), and he did this in the authom (turnips).

A estimate on his birth could be: <He fled in 1914. Age between 18 and 25 (early in the war)>, resulting in 1889 - 1896, and place: Northern part og Germany, perhaps det former danish land og Schlesvia. Many people there felt deeply that they were danish.
----------------------------------

Are You able to help me get further with the surname KNUDE?

Best regards
