Pionier (engineer) David Frühwirth, born June 2, 1924 in Oberdorfberg/Austria.
KIA January 5, 1944 near Kriwoi Rog/Ukraine.
Location of his grave is unknown, it was not possible to transfer the mortal remains to a German military cemetery yet.

P.S. the uniform should be RAD (Reichsarbeitsdienst/Reich Labour Service).

Thank you very much! Can you tell me how you found this? I searched for a long time and found nothing. Thank you very much! I have his helmet, that is why I am researching him. It took me a long time to discover who the helmet belonged to in the first place
