6 Nov 1914 Jäger Johann Georg SchwendingerJäger Johann Georg Schwendinger, 3 Rgt d Tir K J

A foundry worker from Dornbirn, Austria, Johann was born on 6 March 1890. Having recently completed his compulsory service, he was a reservist at the outbreak of war and was, therefore, called back into service within the last days of July 1914 and, after serving for a short time within Austria, was soon sent to fight the Russians in Poland.

Taken prisoner in one of his first actions, Johann died in a PoW camp at Tomsk, Siberia on 6 November 1914. His grave location is unrecorded.
