Information concerning loss of Franz Forster - KG27 - 01.05.1944

Hi,

I have recently acquired a strange sterbebild that had details of one brother but just a photo of the other and a scribbled almost invisible message on the card stating KG27 - Franz Forster and a date 1st May 1944.

Can anyone see if this information leads to an actual loss and provide details on Franz loss?

Thanks

Rick

Thanks Matti.

Sorry if wrong date meant more time finding him but as someone who tries to bring together those lost over UK - a surprise for me!

Merry Christmas
