His father, Hans Marquardt, a stoker by trade, took part in the World War, was buried and, since he was no longer fully employable, has since received a pension. He died, only 59 years old, on June 2, 1942 in Kiel in the surgical clinic after the operation. Nothing is known about the paternal grandparents, they died very early and the father was brought up in a home.

From this marriage a daughter emerged who was brought up together with our Hans Marquardt, because the older siblings had all left their parents' house. Hans had a birth defect, he was missing one heel. He got an artificial heel. As a toddler, his mother had a lot to do with it. Later, however, things settled so well that he hardly noticed anything. He was even a big sports fanatic, doing gymnastics, swimming and a member of a cycling club. He later owned his own motorcycle. He attended the elementary school at Papenkamp from 1924 to 1928. Since he was able to study well, his father sent him to the 3rd boys' middle school on Winterbeker Weg.

The sisters boyfriend was called Gunter Pannier born 1925 15th may in Berlin, but lived in Kiel-wik. In which he graduated with a 1st class at university upon graduation. The sister who was on the BDM which can be seen in a photo and the boyfriend who was in the RAD and other military positions, the majority of the paperwork, drawings, feldposts, letters and photos. From the 1.4.1939 to the 30.9.1942 he worked for Voss & stange werkzengfabrik in Berlin, as a special equipment precision mechanic working on Blohm & Voss BV 141 which was a single engine aircraft. From 30.9.1942 Onwards he worked for Deutsche Lufthansa Berlin again in the same job role. Where later on hes imprisoned and put into forced Labour, here I’m not sure if this is done by the Germans or the allies. Much of the field post letters, prisoner of war letters and official documents are between Gunter and the girl friend, in which 80% of the letters are in German, and the rest are in morose code and English! There are great illustrations on most of the letters, some of soldiers, and wartime things but there are also letters and drawings of the sexualnature!! I’m aware that after the war he was released from a internment camp and he married this women.
