Hello Georg,

All documents of Russian volunteers can be found in Moscow.

I know that there are rare documents - surviving documents of dead volunteers (these cards do not exist in Berlin and Freiburg).

Hello Georg. I can't help you with the photgraphs, but perhaps I can supply some additional information on Martin van Aken? Kind regards, Frank.
