Hello all, before I try and tell the memories from my past life, I would like to ask for you all to bear with my terrible spelling and grammar. I will try and have my wife proof read everything before I post. I was a member of the the Nazi party more importantly the SS, for simplicity sake the 1st SS Panzer Div. Leibstrandarte Adolf Hitler. I had my first memory about 6 years ago. It was not distorted, but very clear and all my senses worked. I have these memory's written down and will share them here. Death: From my personal research, I am positive this first memory was in the Belgian Ardennes Early Jan 1945 I was at a full run. Small arms fire in the background while artillery or mortars incoming. I could feel the cold wind on my face, feel the weight of my gear, and then I caught a piece of shrapnel dead center in the back of my knee. I hit the ground, feeling a burn as another piece of shrapnel pierced my canteen and was pressing against my body. I threw it and continued to run, aware of the warm blood running down my leg and feel cold sweat on my face and neck. Then a second mortar/artillery shell hit as I scrambled over a fallen tree causing me to drop my rifle, a K98 made in the Oberndorf factory date stamped 1940. It was equipped with a Zeis Zielacht 8X telescopic sight.I left the rifle where it lay, picked my self up started to run, then extreme pain and then nothing. This is my first memory, I hope to learn more on this sight and share so of my insight.
