Thank you very much, Jan-Hendrik! This is a very interesting information. I did not know that the Panzertruppen were two people with the surname Köhn.

Best wishes,
Igor

Very interesting information!
Perhaps you know the place of his death? The Panzer-Regiment 3 fought in the area of Caumont.

Thanks in advance,
Igor
