    Per online translations sites, "granatspl" appears to be short for Granatsplitter which means shrapnel.

    About what I would have guessed. When I looked it up all I got were references to some sort of kitchen utensil.

    No. I found him on FMP using their Military filter but I believe the source is icrc. The record gave his mother's home address, so I knew immediately I had found the right person.

    Just had a peep - the images on FMP are the documents on the icrc site.
