The wikipedia articles states that he he served in the war as an officer with an artillery regiment. Anyone happen to know which one?

Ernest Theodor Eichelbaum
b. June 23, 1893 in Berlin
d. April 16, 1991 in St. Peter-Ording

After WW2 was second mayor of Leipzig and CDU politician.

Appears to be listed in the Verlustlisten pg. 14568 as seriously wounded while serving with 3./Feldart. Nr. 246

As far as I can determine he never wrote a memoir nor has a book been written about him, but I would still be interested in anything biographical.
