The file titled Militarpak is a manual from which the picture of him in dress uniform was taken. It is in a script and language I do not understand.

He was just over 14 years old when his mother died. During her long illness his father became attracted to a younger Catholic woman named Bertha who had 8 grown children of her own. Friedrich, Sr. married Bertha shortly after Sophie died, very difficult for Friedrich, Jr. to accept. Catholicism repelled him so he left home to work and train to become a machinist in Hamburg. He also was required to serve in the German Army and he filled a 2-yr. term as a corporal in the Cavalry.
