Cherelle Posted 17 February , 2018 Share Posted 17 February , 2018 I believe I have found my grandfather's missing brother's war grave... I would like help in confirming some details based on photos. Perhaps someone has some extra light to shed on this. Arthur Keller - I do not have a birth date, his brother however was born in 1886, CHEMNITZ, Germany. The picture shows him serving on the S.M.S. Posen, I believe the badge shows his specialty as Funk (Radioman). He is wearing an Iron Cross. Perhaps from the battle of Jutland? My grandfather said he went missing on a u-boat in WW1, and believed him to be on the bottom of the ocean as he would never have deserted his post. I recently found Arthur Keller listed on the Moltenort Memorial, as going down on U Boat 75, Dec 10, 1917. I can't make out the rank abbreviations listed before his name on the memorial, seems to say "F.T.MT." ... can anyone help? If I can confirm it was the same as the uniform in the picture, I know this to be him! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
