Thanks Georges,

unfortunately, I myself do not speak French, and that is a great pity. :cry:

Thanks for your improvements!

Hi all -

Jacques PALGEN might have been from Luxembourg. He attended Junkerschule Bad Toelz and served in the 38. SS-Grenadier Div. "Nibelungen" at the end of the war. He later emigrated to the United States and died in Arizona some years ago.
