Contact the Bundesarchiv for details as mentioned above. There often is only sparse information for soldiers who died in the last months of the war, as records were lost or never created. – lejonet – 2020-09-28T22:21:52.657

"Komp" is an abbreviation for Kompagnie (company). "fliger Aushbiloting(?) Regiment 72" probably should read: Flieger Ausbildungs Regiment 72 (Flight Training Regiment 72). The "Feldpost Nummer" is a military post office address. – bgwiehle – 2020-09-29T12:32:29.523
