The body of this person (soldier) was discovered in the river Lek om 23 November 1944.
When I asked an inhabitant in the small village some 20 years ago, he told me that he was there when they found the body, he said that it was almost naked, but worn army boots, and only a trunk which he think was made from parachute, and had a gun shot wound.
Years later I was told of a story of 2 soldiers who crossed the Rhine only dressed in swimming trunks, and shoes/boots and are missing since.
