Hi Folks,
I've had this post up previously and I make no progress,i searched the Red Cross site Prisoners of the 1st World war to no avail, so asking again for advice, I would dearly love to find out if the man survived  and what part of Germany was he from etc, I put the post in the German Page and i used the  google translation

Hi

Please read your old thread again. I wrote all details about the R. Eggelings there. More is not possible to find on grandeguerre.

You should try to search again with this link, with nationality German, then look on the left side at "Egeling (40)"
https://grandeguerre.icrc.org/en/File/Search

Then you will find Eggeling Reinhold in Palestine
