#OTD vor 79 Jahren, am 20. Mai 1941, begann Unternehmen Merkur: Die deutsche Landung auf #Kreta. Hier ein Foto meines Großvaters im Transportflieger. Sein bester Freund und Mann seiner späteren Frau wird an diesem Tag fallen. Image
Zur Einleitung ein kurzer Blick zurück in das Jahr 1938. Mein Großvater Wilhelm tritt dem #Gebirgsjäger-Regiment 100 in Berchtesgaden bei, wird später Unteroffizier. Die „schönste Kaserne des Reiches“ beherbergt heute das Gebirgsjägerbataillon 232. ImageImageImage
Dort lernt er seinen zukünftigen besten Freud Franz kennen. Dieser ist verheiratet mit Karoline, hier beide auf dem 🛷 vorne (Die Dame neben Opa kenne ich nicht 😗). Nun, das wird später relevant. ImageImage
