I am interested in all the information on this record. The columns and the info below. However, most important is any information about the parents of Anton Metelka, the soldier in this record: their names, occupations and anything else about them.

7/14/2018 1:10 AM Hello Jonathan,

I can't read all, also because I've always found military abbreviations confusing, this handwriting is quite special...
1. 5823
2. rank - U.O - could be Unteroffizier
3. Metelka, Anton
4. religion - abbreviation (not sure looks like "k" for catholic
5. born 20.10.87 - where?
6. occupation - waiter
7. married to Elisabeth born Müller, 1 child
8. parents: Maria, born Zwinger
Anton Kellner (supposedly wrongly filled in, should be Metelka)
the symbol behind the parents' name need interpretation: living or dead
9. troup unit
10.
Oct. 1st 18 ____ 57 I.R. 2. Komp. (infantry regiment)
August 3rd 14: 57 R. 2 Komp. = 57th Regiment, 2. Kompagnie

Führung (conduct)
punishments: none


Below ist says (Zusätze zu den Personalnotizen):
In addition to the personal data
15th. April 16 - at the 5 J _ R in Belgian (abbr.) captivity at Lies
5th of April 19 - from captivity in Lies to Germany

Hope it helped a bit.
Regards, Corinna
