Single award document Luftwaffe - "Luftzeug-Stab 103" - Luft In the winter of 1943/1944 Luftwaffen Berge Bataillon 3 was formed out of Luftzeugstab 103. Berge Bataillone (Salvage Units) The massive Allied raids over Germany created a huge logistical problem for the Luftwaffe: how to remove and make use of the tons of of aicraft wreckage scattered all over Europe. For this purpose they created an special kind of units. They were the Berge Bataillonen. Under the operational control of the Luftwaffe, it depended what to do with the wrecks. Most of them were usable only as a scrap material. To recover this metal was a time consuming effort, as gasoline was strictly rationated and the wreckages were transported by train. Thus, the wreckage was usualy transported by truck to the nearest train station and from there the a salvage yard. With no kind of problems fooling around, to take care of a bomber would take three days. As Allied raids increased in size and in frecuency, the Berge Bataillonen were extremelly busy. Those few planes which were captured hardly damaged were the result of the effort of its crew to save the life of some wounded mate or to a mistake, as the navigator mistook the landing-zone with Switzerland, Spain or Sweden. When this last happen, the captured plane was sent to a Beutepark (Captured Item Depot). New or unique equipment was sent to Rechlin or the DVL at Berlín-Adlershof for fürther investigation. All this material was re-used. The engines were studied by the technical centers, the tires to tire storages (as the one of the W. Heidik factory at Neuenhaben), the parachutes to the Textilwerke Henking K.G. at Seifhennerdorf and the salvaged fuel was kept in fuel dumps at Nienburg, Derben, Neuburg and Dülmen. Part of this captured material was used by the aircraft industry, as we can see in the Ju 287V1 bomber, which used two salvaged B-24 main landing gear assemblies.

Krüger thus became one of the most powerful men in occupied Poland. Among other things he was responsible for: crushing rebellion in the extermination camps, setting up forced labour camps, the employment of police and SS in the evacuations of people from Warsaw ghettos, the execution of Aktion Erntefest, the so-called "anti-partisan" fighting in the General Government, and the driving out of over 1,000,000 Polish farmers from the area around Zamoœæ. Authority quarrels with governor general Hans Frank led to his dismissal on 9 November 1943.[8] He was replaced by Wilhelm Koppe. The Polish Secret State ordered his death, but an assassination attempt on 20 April 1943 in Kraków failed when two bombs hurled at his car missed the target. Six months later, he wrote in a letter, "I have lost honour and reputation due to my four year struggle in the GG (General Government) (Ich habe für meinen vierjährigen Kampf im GG Ehre und Reputation verloren). Later career and death From November 1943 until April 1944 Krüger served with the 7th SS mountain infantry "Prince Eugen" division in Nazi-occupied Yugoslavia. While ostensibly engaged in anti-partisan actions in Yugoslavia, this unit became notorious for committing atrocities against the civilian population. Later from June to August Krüger took over the command over the 6th SS Mountain Division Nord in northern Finland. From August 1944 until February 1945 Krüger was commanding general of the 5th SS Mountain Infantry Corps. In February 1945 he was Himmler's representative at the German southeast front and in April and May 1945 he was commander of a combat unit of the Ordnungspolizei (Orpo) at Army Group South (known as Army Group Ostmark after 1 May 1945).

DAF (Deutsche Arbeitsfront) - "Wilhelm Gustloff" - Kraft durch Freude The DAF (Deutsche Arbeitsfront) offered short holidays on ships like the "Wilhelm Gustloff". This is a brochure / remembrance folder of one of these travels. Operation Hannibal was the naval evacuation of German troops and civilians from Courland, East Prussia, and Danzig-West Prussia as the Red Army advanced. Wilhelm Gustloff's final voyage was to evacuate German refugees and military personnel as well as technicians who worked at advanced weapon bases in the Baltic[7] from Gdynia, then known to the Germans as Gotenhafen, to Kiel.[8] The ship's complement and passenger lists cited 6,050 people on board, but this did not include many civilians who boarded the ship without being recorded in the official embarkation records. Heinz Schön, a German archivist and Gustloff survivor who carried out extensive research into the sinking during the 1980s and 1990s, concluded that Wilhelm Gustloff was carrying a crew of 173 (naval armed forces auxiliaries), 918 officers, NCOs, and men of the 2 Unterseeboot-Lehrdivision, 373 female naval auxiliary helpers, 162 wounded soldiers, and 8,956 civilians, of which an estimated 5,000 were children, for a total of 10,582 passengers and crew.[8] The passengers besides civilians included Gestapo personnel, members of the Organisation Todt and Nazi officials with their families.[9][10] The ship was overcrowded, and due to the temperature and humidity inside many passengers defied orders not to remove their life jackets.[11] The ship left Danzig at 12:30 pm on 30 January 1945, accompanied by the passenger liner Hansa, also filled with civilians and military personnel, and two torpedo boats. Hansa and one torpedo boat developed mechanical problems and could not continue, leaving Wilhelm Gustloff with one torpedo boat escort, Löwe.[12] The ship had four captains (Wilhelm Gustloff's captain, two merchant marine captains and the captain of the U-Boat complement housed on the vessel) on board, and they could not agree on the best course of action to guard against submarine attacks. Against the advice of the military commander, Lieutenant Commander Wilhelm Zahn (a submariner who argued for a course in shallow waters close to shore and without lights), Wilhelm Gustloff's captain—Friedrich Petersen—decided to head for deep water which was known to have been cleared of mines. When he was informed by a mysterious radio message of an oncoming German minesweeper convoy, he decided to activate his ship's red and green navigation lights so as to avoid a collision in the dark, making Wilhelm Gustloff easy to spot in the night. As Wilhelm Gustloff had been fitted with anti-aircraft guns, and the Germans, in obedience to the rules of war, did not mark her as a hospital ship, no notification of her operating in a hospital capacity had been given and, as she was transporting military personnel, she did not have any protection as a hospital ship under international accords.[13] Sinking[edit] The ship was soon sighted by the Soviet submarine S-13, under the command of Captain Alexander Marinesko. The submarine sensor on board the escorting torpedo boat had frozen, rendering it inoperable, as had Wilhelm Gustloff's anti-aircraft guns, leaving the vessels defenseless. Marinesko followed the ships to their starboard (seaward) side for two hours before making a daring move to surface his submarine and steer it around Wilhelm Gustloff's stern to attack it from the port side closer to shore, where the attack would be less expected. At around 9 pm (CET), Marinesko ordered his crew to launch four torpedoes at Wilhelm Gustloff's port side about 30 km (16 nmi; 19 mi) offshore between Großendorf and Leba. The first was nicknamed "for the Motherland," the second "for Leningrad," the third "for the Soviet people" and the fourth torpedo which got jammed in the torpedo tubes and had to be dismantled was called "for Stalin." [8] The three torpedoes which were fired successfully all struck Wilhelm Gustloff on her port side. The first torpedo which struck Wilhelm Gustloff's bow caused the watertight doors to seal off the bow which contained the crews' quarters where off-duty crew members were sleeping. The second torpedo hit the accommodations for the women’s naval auxiliary located in the ship's drained swimming pool; dislodging the pool tiles at high speed, which caused heavy casualties, and only three of the 373 quartered there survived. The third torpedo was a direct hit on the engine room located amidships, disabling all power and communications. Reportedly, only nine lifeboats were able to be lowered; the rest had frozen in their davits and had to be broken free. About 20 minutes after the impact of the torpedoes, Wilhelm Gustloff listed dramatically to port so that the lifeboats lowered on the high Starboard side crashed into the ship's tilting side, destroying many lifeboats and spilling their occupants across the ship's side.[11] The water temperature in the Baltic Sea at that time of year is usually around 4 °C (39 °F); however, this was a particularly cold night, with an air temperature of −18 to −10 °C (0 to 14 °F) and ice floes covering the surface. Many deaths were caused either directly by the torpedoes or by drowning in the onrushing water. Others were crushed in the initial stampede caused by panicked passengers on the stairs and decks. Many others jumped into the icy Baltic. The majority of those who perished succumbed to exposure in the freezing water.[14] Less than 40 minutes after being struck, Wilhelm Gustloff was lying on her side and sank bow-first ten minutes later, in 44 m (144 ft) of water. German forces were able to rescue some (a total of 996) of the survivors from the attack: torpedo boat T-36 rescued 564 people; torpedo boat Löwe, 472; minesweeper M387, 98; minesweeper M375, 43; minesweeper M341, 37; the steamer Göttingen saved 28; torpedo-recovery boat (torpedofangboot) TF19, seven; the freighter Gotenland, two; and patrol boat (Vorpostenboot) V1703 was able to save one baby.[11] All four captains on Wilhelm Gustloff survived her sinking, but an official naval inquiry was started only against Wilhelm Zahn. His degree of responsibility was never resolved, however, because of Nazi Germany's collapse in 1945.[15] (source:wikipedia)

This poster - which measures 55 x 80 cms. - was issued to raise funds for these actions. A beauty in wonderful condition!!

Extensive grouping Art.Rgt.26 - Peters Extensive grouping of "Hauptmann" Franz Peters who served within several different artillery related units. Peters started his military career in 1936 within Art.Rgt.42. In 1939 he went to the "Waffenschule d.Art." (artillery school). Since that moment he served within several (heavy) artillery units like the A.R.26 of the 26.Inf.Div. The Wehrpass of Peters shows many entries but does not mention the EK I and "Sturmabzeichen" award as these were entered in his Soldbuch as stated by a document. Peters was altogether awarded the "Ostmedaille",the EK II,the "Schutzwall-Ehrenzeichen",the SWB,the EK I and the "Sturmabzeichen". This grouping consists of many interesting bits and pieces concerning his military career. There are papers and documents throughout his military career. His stay in Paris,"Sonderausweise","Marschbefehle" tickets etc.etc. Peters last unit was "Heeres Art.Brig.402" which was finally renamed in "Volks Art.Korps 402" which participated in the "Battle of the Bulge" and later in the Wesel area under command of the 1.Fallsch.Armee. This grouping needs further research and is worth every euro!
Extensive grouping coming from a "Sanitäter" who served within the 26.Inf.Div. - Oswald Extensive grouping of San.Feldwebel Peter Oswald who served within San.Komp.26 (part of the 26.Inf.Div.). First of all: The Wehrpass of Peter Oswald in "Zweitschrift" (second) edition with a great "Gefechtskalender" from 26-6-1939 untill 16-4-1945 when Oswald served with 16. Volks Gren.Div. There has never been a picture in the Wehrpass but the (not that important) pages 3/4 are unfortunatley torn-out. The grouping consists of 5 award-documents: 1) Award document "Medaille zur Erinnerung an den 1-10-1938"; 2) Award-document EK II dated 27-6-1940!! signed by Generalleutnant and div.commander Sigismund von Förster; 3) Award-document "Ostmedaille"; 4) Award-document KvK II m. Schw.; 5) Award-document EK I signed by the Oberst and div.commander Heinz Kokott. Only the 1-10-1938 award document has been folded, the other 4 are in unfolded ie. very nice condition. 6) Drivers-licence dated 3-3-1941; 7) Red cross I.D.-document in white linen; 8) Red Cross brassard; 9) Photoalbum from the early-period as Oswald served within Inf.Rgt.4 and was involved with this unit in the "Westfeldzug" (165 pictures). Altogether an impressive grouping of a very brave and therfore well awarded "Sanitäter" of a sometimes underestimated branch! I deem that this large group merits further investigation!

The Fallschirmschützenschein is unfortunatly partly cut due to wear but nevertheless a desirable piece and easy to repair if necessary. Great historical grouping!

Gedenkblatt Schlachtschiffes"Scharnhorst" (commemorative brochure) Rare commemorative brochure concerning the destruction of the battleship "Scharnhorst" Scharnhorst was a German capital ship, alternatively described as a battleship and battlecruiser, of Nazi Germany's Kriegsmarine. She was the lead ship of her class, which included one other ship, Gneisenau. The ship was built at the Kriegsmarinewerft dockyard in Wilhelmshaven; she was laid down on 15 June 1935 and launched a year and four months later on 3 October 1936. Completed in January 1939, the ship was armed with a main battery of nine 28 cm (11 in) C/34 guns in three triple turrets. Plans to replace these weapons with six 38 cm (15 in) SK C/34 guns in twin turrets were never carried out. Scharnhorst and Gneisenau operated together for much of the early portion of World War II, including sorties into the Atlantic to raid British merchant shipping. During her first operation, Scharnhorst sank the auxiliary cruiser HMS Rawalpindi in a short engagement. Scharnhorst and Gneisenau participated in Operation Weserübung, the German invasion of Norway. During operations off Norway, the two ships engaged the battlecruiser HMS Renown and sank the aircraft carrier HMS Glorious as well as her escort destroyers Acasta and Ardent. In that engagement Scharnhorst achieved one of the longest-range naval gunfire hits in history. In early 1942, after repeated British bombing raids, the two ships made a daylight dash up the English Channel from occupied France to Germany. In early 1943, Scharnhorst joined the Bismarck-class battleship Tirpitz in Norway to interdict Allied convoys to the Soviet Union. Scharnhorst and several destroyers sortied from Norway to attack a convoy; the Germans were instead intercepted by British naval patrols. During the Battle of the North Cape, the Royal Navy battleship HMS Duke of York and her escorts sank Scharnhorst. Only 36 men were pulled from the icy seas, out of a crew of 1,968. It comes with a large photo of one of the killed crewmembers. Historical item!

KM set - Scharnhorst - Schulte "Kriegsmarine" set of "Maschinengefreiten" Heinz Schulte who served on the famous "Schlachtschiffes Scharnhorst". As the "Scharnhorst" was sunk on 26-12-1943 Schulte was one of the many crewmembers (1968) who drowned in the icecold water and rough circumstances. 1) "Flotten-Kriegsabzeichen" (High Sea Fleet Badge) award document which was issued posthumous on 1-3-1944 for members of the battle cruiser "Scharnhorst". This document is standard issued with printed stamp and signature. 2) "Heldentod" award document dtaed 26-12-1943 (as the ship was sunk) issued in Buxtehude on 21-9-1944 and signed (stamp) byt "Kapitän zur See und Chef des Stabes des 2.Admirals der Nordsee" Ernst Gruber. Scharnhorst was a German capital ship, alternatively described as a battleship and battlecruiser, of Nazi Germany's Kriegsmarine. She was the lead ship of her class, which included one other ship, Gneisenau. The ship was built at the Kriegsmarinewerft dockyard in Wilhelmshaven; she was laid down on 15 June 1935 and launched a year and four months later on 3 October 1936. Completed in January 1939, the ship was armed with a main battery of nine 28 cm (11 in) C/34 guns in three triple turrets. Plans to replace these weapons with six 38 cm (15 in) SK C/34 guns in twin turrets were never carried out. Scharnhorst and Gneisenau operated together for much of the early portion of World War II, including sorties into the Atlantic to raid British merchant shipping. During her first operation, Scharnhorst sank the auxiliary cruiser HMS Rawalpindi in a short engagement (November 1939). Scharnhorst and Gneisenau participated in Operation Weserübung (April–June 1940), the German invasion of Norway. During operations off Norway, the two ships engaged the battlecruiser HMS Renown and sank the aircraft carrier HMS Glorious as well as her escort destroyers Acasta and Ardent. In that engagement Scharnhorst achieved one of the longest-range naval gunfire hits in history. In early 1942, after repeated British bombing raids, the two ships made a daylight dash up the English Channel from occupied France to Germany. In early 1943, Scharnhorst joined the Bismarck-class battleship Tirpitz in Norway to interdict Allied convoys to the Soviet Union. Scharnhorst and several destroyers sortied from Norway to attack a convoy, but British naval patrols intercepted the German force. During the Battle of the North Cape (26 December 1943), the Royal Navy battleship HMS Duke of York and her escorts sank Scharnhorst. Only 36 men were pulled from the icy seas, out of a crew of 1,968. (Source Wikipedia) Comes with a copy of the "Gedenkblatt- Heldenkampf und Untergang des Schlachtschiffes Scharnhorst". This can be considered as a rare document set and historical highlight!

Grützner was awarded the "Zerstörerkriegsabzeichen". Following info from Lexikon der Wehrmacht. Beschreibung des Bootes: Der Zerstörer "Z 26" war das vierte Boot des Typs 1936 A. Das Boot wurde mit vier 15-cm Geschützen fertig gestellt und komplett hellgrau gestrichen. An den Brückennocks und den Artillerieschutzschilden waren Rettungsflöße angebracht. Unter der Kreuzrah des vorderen Mastes war ein Jessen-Heuler angebracht. Anfang 1942 erhielt das Boot einen zweifarbigen, hellgrauen und dunkelgrauen Tarnanstrich. Lebenslauf: Der Zerstörer "Z 26" wurde am 9. Januar 1941 in Bremen für die 8. Zerstörer-Flottille in Dienst gestellt. Die anschließenden Ausbildungs- und Erprobungsfahrten verzögerten sich bei "Z 26", wegen starker Vereisung der Ostsee. Am 22. September verließ "Z 26" Bremerhaven und lief am Folgetag in Kiel ein. Hier übernahm das Boot Torpedos und lief dann weiter nach Swinemünde. Von hier aus stieß der Zerstörer zur Baltenflotte in der Aalandsee und erreichte mit dieser am 29. September 1941 Gotenhafen. Vom 10. bis 12. Oktober führten "Z 25" und "Z 26" Artillerieschießen in der Ostsee durch. Am 18. Oktober liefen "Z 25" und "Z 26" zu Meilenfahrten aus Swinemünde aus und kehrten am 20. Oktober zurück. Am Folgetag verlegte "Z 26" nach Bremen zur Deschimag-Werft, um hier das Kesselgebläse und das S-Gerät reparieren zu lassen. Am 9. November liefen "Z 24" und "Z 26" zum Marsch nach Norwegen aus ihren Häfen aus und erreichten am 11. November 1941 Bergen. Von hier aus marschierten die beiden Zerstörer weiter nach Norden und erreichten am 21. November Tromsö. Am 10. / 11. Dezember verlegten "Z 23, "Z 24", "Z 25", "Z 26" und "Z 27" von Tromsö nach Kirkenes. Am 16. Dezember verließen "Z 23", "Z 24", "Z 25", "Z 26" und "Z 27" Kirkenes, um an die Murmann-Küste vorzustoßen. Wegen Maschinenschadens blieb "Z 26" in Kirkenes zurück. Am 5. Januar 1942 verließen liefen "Z 26" und "Z 27" aus Kirkenes aus und erreichten am 6. Januar 1942 Tromsö. Am 7. Januar setzten die beiden Zerstörer ihren Marsch nach Süden fort und liefen am 10. Januar in Kiel ein, wo sie zur Reparatur in die Werft gingen. Ende Februar war die Werftliegezeit beendet und der Zerstörer führte Probe- und Ausbildungsfahrten in der Ostsee durch. Am 18. März 1943 verließen "Z 26", "Z 24" und "Z 30" Wesermünde und marschierten nach Brunsbüttel. Dort trafen die Zerstörer auf den Kreuzer "Admiral Hipper" sowie die 3. Torpedoboots-Flottille. Zusammen marschierte der Verband ab dem 19. März 1943 nach Norden und erreichten am 21. März Drontheim. Am 23. März liefen "Z 24", "Z 25" und "Z 26" aus Trondheim aus, um nach Tromsö zu verlegen. Wegen eines technischen Defektes auf "Z 24" mußten die Zerstörer jedoch am gleichen Tag noch kehrt machen und wieder in Trondheim einlaufen. Nach erfolgter Instandsetzung von "Z 24" liefen die Zerstörer am 25. März wieder aus und erreichten am 26. März Tromsö. Von hier aus erreichten die drei Zerstörer am 27. März Kirkenes. Am 28. März verließen die drei Zerstörer Kirkenes, um im Nordmeer gegen den Geleitzug "PQ 13" zu operieren. Kurz vor Mitternacht retteten die Zerstörer insgesamt 61 Seeleute eines von der Luftwaffe versenkten Frachters. Anschließend setzten die Zerstörer die Suche nach dem Geleitzug fort. Kurz nach Beginn des 29. März konnte "Z 26" den versprengten Frachter "Bateau" versenken. Der Zerstörer rettete anschließend sieben Mann der Besatzung. Gegen 6.45 Uhr waren die Zerstörer auf Nordkurs gegangen und hatten die Suche fortgesetzt. Wenig später gingen die Zerstörer auf Nordwestkurs, um den ausgemachten Geleitzug von Norden her anzugreifen. zwischen 7.00 und 8.00 Uhr bildeten die Zerstörer in der Reihenfolge "Z 26", "Z 24" und "Z 25" eine Kiellinie und ging auf Westkurs. Um 9.48 Uhr stießen die Zerstörer auf den Sicherungs-Kreuzer "HMS Trinidad", der, teilweise hinter Schneeschauern verborgen, schlagartig das Feuer eröffnete. "Z 26" erhielt bereits mit den ersten Salven schwere Treffer. Das 2. und 3. Geschütz fielen aus, es entstand ein Kartuschenbrand und die Backbordmaschine fiel aus. Gleichzeitig schoß "Z 24" einen Fächer von sieben Torpedos auf den Kreuzer ab, von denen keiner traf. Allerdings feuerte Trinidad ebenfalls einen Torpedo ab, der zum Kreisläufer wurde und den Kreuzer selbst traf und ihn erheblich beschädigte. Der Kreuzer beschoß "Z 26" jedoch weiter, bis die Fühlung zum Kreuzer in einer Schneeböe abriß. Wenig später kam es zu einem Artillerieduell zwischen "Z 26" und dem Geleitzerstörer "HMS Fury", bei dem "Z 26" erneut beschädigt wurde. Inzwischen hatten sich die deutschen Zerstörer zerstreut, schlossen aber gegen 11.25 Uhr wieder zu "Z 26" heran. Es gelang den Zerstörern, den ebenfalls herangeschlossenen Zerstörer "HMS Eclipse" mit Artillerie schwer zu beschädigen. Anschließend übernahmen "Z 24" und "Z 25" die Überlebenden von "Z 26", darunter den Kommandanten und den Flottillenchef. Gegen Mittag war "Z 26" gesunken. Es war die erste Feindfahrt des Bootes. Not often seen Wehrpass!
KM Wehrpass/award document grouping M.A.A.531 - Friedrich Wehrpass of Hans Friedrich who served within the: Marine Art.Abt.531. The Wehrpass itself is poorly filled-in and gives not much info. One of the few interesting entries is the EK II award-entry. However, it comes with a (strange enough) rarely seen award-document of the "Kriegsabzeichen für die Marineartillerie". Although Friedrich was already killed on 15-7-1941 this award-document was issued on 3-8-1944 (so three years later!) by "Der kommandierende Admiral östliche Ostsee" Vizeadmiral Theodor Burchardi (RK 29-9-1944,EL 8-4-1945). Neat "Heldentod-Urkunde" for the:"Marine-Artillerie-Gefreiter" (or coastal artillery NCO) named: Hans Friedrich who served within the: M.A.A.531 (or Marine Art.Abt. 531). Friedrich was killed on 15-7-1941 in Estland while serving with a: "Marine-Stosstruppabteilung". I offered this "Heldentod-Urkunde" earlier as a single document (Code: 51673) as I received the rest later from a private household-cleaning! The document comes with 2 postcard-pictures of Friedrich and 8 documents concerning his death and awards.. An attractive and not often seen grouping !

Period unit-related book entitled: "Wir von der Vlissinger Flak" Period Kriegsmarine (ie. Küstenartillerie) unit-related book entitled: "Wir von der Vlissinger Flak" Rare publication that was specifically published for a coastal Flak unit based in Vlissingen (Holland). This nice and rare book was published in 1941 because it was of the first year of existence of the "Marine-Flak-Abteilung 703" (aka the "Vlissinger Flak" unit). This interesting book was given to the members of this specific coastal Flak unit only and provided an impression of Holland with specific reference to the province of Zeeland which is in the South-West of Holland. The book retains all of its 110 pages flavoured with lots of interesting most unit related pictures and drawings. Of additional interest is the fact that the initial owner of the book has added 7 (period-) pictures taken in his Dutch period. The commander of the unit named "Korvettenkapitän Freiherr von Lupin" wrote the introduction page which can be seen on the photos. As far as I could research the unit existed only for a one-year period after which it was replaced to France and renamed. A very nice and interesting book in an overall fine condition!

The document starts on 1-8-1944 and ends in February 1945. It gives some interesting information of that certain period though not easy to read. It even mentions: "Kämpfe in Nimwegen und Arnheim" (battles around Nijmegen and Arnhem). Fermath was stationed about 100 kms. from the battles so probably he was sent there. Fermath put these items altogether in June 1945 as stated in the introduction. A nice photo/letter diary of a very roaring period!

Juli 1941) Werner Mölders (18 March 1913 - 22 November 1941) was a World War II German Luftwaffe pilot and the leading German fighter ace in the Spanish Civil War. Mölders became the first pilot in aviation history to claim 100 aerial victories - that is, 100 aerial combat encounters resulting in the destruction of the enemy aircraft, and was highly decorated for his achievements. He was instrumental in the development of new fighter tactics that led to the finger-four formation. He died in an air crash in which he was a passenger. Mölders joined the Luftwaffe in 1934 at the age of 21. In 1938, he volunteered for service in the Condor Legion, which supported General Francisco Franco's Nationalist side in the Spanish Civil War, and shot down 14 aircraft. In World War II, he lost two wingmen in the Battle of France and the Battle of Britain, but shot down 53 enemy aircraft. With his tally standing at 68 victories, Mölders and his unit, the Jagdgeschwader 51 (JG 51), were transferred to the Eastern Front in June 1941 for the opening of Operation Barbarossa. By the end of 22 June 1941, the first day of Barbarossa, he had added another four victories to his tally and a week later, Mölders surpassed Manfred von Richthofen's 1918 record of 80 victories. By mid-July, he had 100 World War II victories. Prevented from flying further combat missions for propaganda reasons, at the age of 28 Mölders was promoted to Oberst, and appointed Inspector General of Fighters. He was inspecting the Luftwaffe units in the Crimea when he was ordered to Berlin to attend the state funeral of Ernst Udet, the World War I flying ace. On the flight to Berlin, the Heinkel He 111 in which he was traveling as a passenger encountered a heavy thunderstorm during which one of the aircraft's engines failed. While attempting to land, the Heinkel crashed at Breslau, killing Mölders and two others. The German Wehrmacht of Nazi Germany and the Bundeswehr of the Federal Republic of Germany both honoured him by naming two fighter wings, a destroyer and barracks after him. However, in 1998, the German Parliament decided that members of the Condor Legion such as Mölders, should "no longer be honoured". Therefore, in 2005, the German Ministry of Defence decided to remove the name "Mölders" from the fighter wing still bearing his name. (source Wikipedia). Rare opportunity to achieve a original signature picture postcard of Werner Mölders who was killed already in the early stage of war by accident on 22. November 1941 in Breslau.

Postcard Willrich - Ritterkreuzträger der Wehrmacht (Heer) with period signature: Generaloberst Heinz Guderian This a postcard of the famous Willrich series entitled: Ritterkreuzträger der Wehrmacht (Heer) with a period signature of Generaloberst Heinz Guderian. The card is in issued condition. The card has been sent as Feldpost on 6-5-42 to a certain K.H.Zilligen.The card is in an overall nice condition. Heinz Wilhelm Guderian; 17 June 1888 - 14 May 1954) was a German general during World War II, noted for his success as a leader of Panzer units in Poland, France and Russia. Guderian had pioneered motorized tactics in the pre-war army, while keeping himself well-informed about tank development in other armies. In particular, he promoted the use of radio communication between tank-crews, and devised shock-tactics that proved highly effective. In 1940, he led the Panzers that broke the French defences at Sedan, leading to the surrender of France. In 1941, his well-planned attack on Moscow was interrupted by orders from Hitler, with whom he disagreed sharply, and he was transferred to the reserve. This marked the end of his ascendancy. After the defeat at Stalingrad, Hitler appointed him to a new post, rebuilding the shattered Panzer forces, but he feuded with many other generals, who managed to get his responsibilities re-allocated. He was then appointed Chief of the General Staff of the Army, but this was largely a symbolic post, since Hitler had effectively become his own Chief of Staff. From 1945-48, Guderian was held in U.S. custody, but released without charge. He then advised on the re-establishment of military forces in West Germany.
Postcard Willrich - Ritterkreuzträger der Wehrmacht (Kriegsmarine) with period signature: Konteradmiral Karl Dönitz This a postcard of the famous Willrich series entitled: Ritterkreuzträger der Wehrmacht (Kriegsmarine) with a period signature of Konteradmiral Karl Dönitz. The card is in non-issued condition and is void of any writing. Karl Dönitz 6 September 1891 - 24 December 1980), sometimes spelt Doenitz in English, was a German admiral who played a major role in the Naval history of World War II. He began his career in the Imperial German Navy (Kaiserliche Marine) before World War I. In 1918, while he was in command of UB-68, the submarine was sunk by British forces and Dönitz was taken prisoner. While in a prisoner of war camp, he formulated what he later called Rudeltaktik[2] ("pack tactic", commonly called "wolfpack"). At the start of World War II, he was the senior submarine officer in the Kriegsmarine. In January 1943, Dönitz achieved the rank of Großadmiral (Grand Admiral) and replaced Grand Admiral Erich Raeder as Commander-in-Chief of the Navy (Oberbefehlshaber der Kriegsmarine). On 30 April 1945, after the death of Adolf Hitler and in accordance with Hitler's last will and testament Dönitz was named Hitler's successor as Staatsoberhaupt (Head of State), with the title of Reichspräsident (President) and Supreme Commander of the Armed Forces. On 7 May 1945, he ordered Generaloberst Alfred Jodl to sign the German instruments of surrender in Rheims, France. Großadmiral Dönitz remained as head of the Flensburg Government, as it became known, until it was dissolved by the Allied powers on 23 May. At the Nuremberg trials, he was convicted of war crimes and sentenced to ten years imprisonment; after his release, he lived quietly in a village near Hamburg until his death.

Rare commemorative book entitled: "Batterie Noordwijk" 1941 - Holland - coastal defence This neat commemorative book was presented as a unique Christmas-gift for the year 1941 and was merely presented to the crew-members of the: "Küstenartillerie-Batterie" (ie. coastal defence battery) situated in the town of Noordwijk (Holland). The "Batterie Noordwijk" was part of the: "M.A.A.201" (Marine-Art.Abt. 201) and held only 180 crew-members. The book gives in more than 50 pages a perfect and very interesting view into the construction and daily life of the crew. The book has a cover which is executed in artificial leather having a gold-printed text on its front. The fact that the crew numbered only 180 members (and assuming that all got a copy) makes these very attractive books with certainty rare.

Rare ID-document "Transportflotte Speer - Einsatz Wiking" (for a Dutchman!)

The "Einsatz Wiking"-unit was also known as the: "OT-Einsatzgruppe Norwegen" (Norway). This coxswain earned 300 Dutch guilders a month which was a lot of money in those days. Unfortunately is the last-name of the former owner of this rare ID-document deliberatly 'faded' ie. made unreadable. Nevertheless a rare and interesting ID-document!
Rare leaflet "Nationalkomtee Freies Deutschland" According Wikipedia: Two months after the founding of the NKFD, the League of German Officers (German: Bund Deutscher Offiziere, or BDO) was founded; its leader was General Walther von Seydlitz-Kurzbach. The main task of the BDO was to deliver propaganda aimed at the German armed forces. A number of officers held as Soviet prisoners of war eventually joined the BDO, the most prominent of them being Field-Marshal (German: Generalfeldmarschall) Friedrich Paulus, the commander of the Sixth Army captured at the Battle of Stalingrad. The BDO later merged with the NKFD Ideology. Interesting inside out counter propaganda leaflet to persuade German soldiers to lay down thier weapons.
Rare luxurious presentation book by du Prel & Janke: "Die Niederlande im Umbruch der Zeiten" with original signature of Arthur Seyss-Inquart! Extremely hard to find limited edition book in this form. Covered with genuine bluish-/black leather with gold printed text still in its original cardboard cover. The book is dated 1942 and published on behalf of Dr.Seyss -Inquart to make clear in what way The Netherlands (die Niederlande) showed similarity to the Germans and Germany since 1648. This specific example was given to a select number of people who paid a tribute to create this book and shows therefore an original signature of Arthur Seyss-Inquart who was "Reichskommissar der Niederlande". He was sentenced to death at the Neurnberg trials because of his responsibilities for the war-crimes during the occupation of the Netherlands.

As Hermann had been transfeered to the "Heer" he kept wearing his Luftwaffe award. Vogt served within the 93.Inf.Div. and must have been most certainly in "Kurland" (Courland).

Rothe was promoted to "Stabsgefreiten" in 1944 but ended his military service as a "Krankenträger"(stretcherbearer). It is almost certain Rothe has been taken prisoner by the Russians with the 122. Inf.Div.in Courland and therefor it has no entry picture anymore (As often with Soldbuchs of soldiers who have been in a POW camp the entry picture has been taken out). Brave "Krankenträger" Soldbuch and "Kurland Kämpfer"!

Von Feld was awarded the "Italienische Erinnerungsmedaille", the "Ostmedaille" and the "Ärmelband Afrika" (as he served in both Afrika and Russia). Von Feld arrived in Africa on 1-1-1943. An unusual Soldbuch!

With this division Reichwein served as part of "Küstenschutzverband Tromsö" ( coastal security in Norway). It seems that Reichwein was taken POW and stayed as such in Norway. The Soldbuch shows several different glued-in paper strips concerning salary. Although page 11 and 12 are missing and no awards are entered this Soldbuch is certainly interesting!
Soldbuch WH (Heer) - 272.Inf.Div.-Vasel "Ersatzausfertigung" Soldbuch of Otto Vasel who served with Gren.Rgt.982 of the 272.Inf.Div.in 1944 . This division was destroyed in August 1944 near Caen (Normandie,France) Whether Vasel was with them is hard to say while he had some hospital visits during this period. He was awarded the EK II on 24-7-1944 while serving with Gre.Rgt.982. Nevertheless Vasel was awarded the "Ostmedaille",BWB,the Inf.Sturmabzeichen and the EK II.

After being refitted in the Netherlands (Groningen,Tilburg) the 256.V.G.D. was used for the fightings in the Saar,Hunrück,Mittelrhein area.

Soldbuch WH (Heer) - 383.Inf.Div.- Freitag Soldbuch of "Gefreiten" Georg Freitag who served with Inf.Rgt.531 of the 383.Inf.Div. Freitag seems to have been with an machine gun unit and was therefor issued a "P08". Freitag has been awarded the "Infanterie-Sturmabzeichen Silber",the BWB and the EK II.

Soldbuch WH (Heer) - 68.Inf.Div. - Huhmann Soldbuch of "Fahnenjunker Feldwebel" Gerhard Huhmann who served within Gren.Rgt.169 of the 68.Inf.Div.

During the fightings in 1944 Huhmann was awarded the BWB,the EK II and the GWB! This nice Soldbuch comes with a great entry picture with Huhmann wearing his M43 cap and with a gleud-in page with 2 "Nahkampftage" (close combat days) Rather unusual "Spähtrupp" and "Stosstruppunternehmen" entry. Altogether a great Soldbuch, complete (some loose pages) with some unusual interesting extras!
Soldbuch WH (Heer) - 7.Geb.Div./116.Inf.Div. - Czylwik Soldbuch of "Unteroffizier" Wilhelm Czylwik who served first within the 99. leichten Infanterie-Division which would be reclassified in the 7.Geb.Div.(mountain division). Czylwik served within the Stab (staff) of the 7.Geb.Div.and was active within this unit in "Lappland". Later on (1944) Czylwik was transferred to Pz.Rgt.16 of the 116.Pz.Division aka "Windhund" division. Although Czylwik must have seen quite some action without any doubt there are no award entries in the Soldbuch. What happened exactly with Czylwik is unclear but for sure he has been taken POW somewhere (France,Holland?) Nice weapon issued entries like P38 ,M.Pi. Czylwik added a fieldmade protective cover. Great and rather "salty" (some loose pages) Soldbuch of an "Unteroffizier" who ended within the famous 116.Pz.Division!!.
Soldbuch WH (Heer) - 79.Inf.Div. - Bretz Soldbuch of "Obergrfreiter" Wilhelm Bretz who served within Inf.Rgt.212 of the 79.Inf.Div. With this division Bretz must have seen Lemberg,Kiew,Charkow and Stalingrad as the 79.Inf.Div. was one of the divisions which were destroyed at Stalingrad. In what way Bretz managed to "escape" is unclear but he seems to have been one of the lucky ones. As the division was newly raised in 1943 Bretz was one of them. For his efforts during his military service Bretz was awarded the BWB , the "Infanterie-Stürmabzeichen" , the EK II , the "Ostmedaille" and the SWB! Bretz was issued a "Gwehr 43" on 16-3-1945!! This "salty" Soldbuch is a great example of a well used (complete) book filled with lots of entries and interesting information.
Soldbuch WH (Heer) - 96.Inf.Div. - Gennermann Soldbuch of "Obergefreiten" Fritz Gennermann who served within Inf.Rgt.283 of the 96.Inf.Div.

Soldbuch WH (Heer) - Heeresmuseum Wien - Dollinger "Zweitschrift" Soldbuch of "Oberschütze" Josef Dollinger who served within the medical branche of Landesschützen Ers.Btl.17 .

Comes with several additional documents concerning "Heeresmuseum Wien".
Soldbuch WH (Heer) - Kraftwagen-Transport-Abteilung 618 - Ott "Zweitschrift" Soldbuch of "Obergefreiten" Willy Ott who served with Kraftwagen-Transport-Abteilung 618 as "Kraftfahrer"(truckdriver). With this unit Ott participated in fightings in Russia and Poland. The importance of "Kraftfahrer"(truckdriver) is probably underestimated. Ott was awarded the "Ostmedaille", the "Kraftfahrbewährungsabzeichen in Bronze",the "Kubanschild" and the KvK II m.Schw.for his efforts. Nice small entries as "Taschenlampe","Esbitkocher" and "Waffenentgiftung".
Soldbuch WH (Heer) - Krankentranssport Abt.703 (mot.) - Krämer Soldbuch of "Sanitäts Oberfeldwebel" Hermann Krämer who served within Krankentranssport Abt.703 (mot.) which was under command of the 1.Panzer Armee.

Soldbuch WH (Heer) - Landessch.Btl.626 - Lompe Soldbuch of "Unteroffizier" Werner Lompe who served within Landesschützen Btl.626.

(2 magasins with 18 shots and a cleaning gear). Lompe was awarded the KvK II m.Schw. and the BWB awards. Worn but complete Soldbuch with 2 glued-in pages issued by a Belgium provider. Interesting and probably underestimated branch!

Landessch.Btl.875 served under command of the "Kommandeur der Kriegsgefangenen IV" (Wehrkreis IV). Wehmer seems to have been one of those soldiers who guarded POW,s. Wehmer owned a private handgun (Walther 7,65 mm.) and was later issued a Czech and a French handgun.
Soldbuch WH (Heer) - Stellungsbau-Rahmen-Bataillon 1008 - Eicher Soldbuch of "Gefreiten" Rüdolf Eicher who served within Stellungsbau-Rahmen-Bataillon 1008 and afterwards it was renmaed in Einweisungsabt.1008. With this unit Eicher constructed defencelines in "Wehrkreis VIII" (district 8) in Poland. On 26-2-1945 Eicher was awarded the "Schützwall-Ehrenzeichen"!

Later Sender became "Kanonier" within Heeres Art.Brig.(mot.) 407 and was finally promoted to "Wachtmeister".

Sender was awarded the EK II, the BWB and the "Ostmedaille" (issued on 4-12-1944) for his efforts.

Soldbuch WH (Heer) Landes-Schützen-Btl.491 - Engl Soldbuch of Alfred Engl who served with Landes-Schützen-Btl.491 . This unit took care of securing prisoners of war. This Soldbuch is not marked asa second edition but must be one. Allthough Engl ended with Landes-Schützen-Btl.491 he had served with an unknown unit . With this unit Engl must have seen quite some action regarding his award :"Deutsche Schützwall-Ehrenzeichen", "Infabterie-Stürmabzeichen in Silber,",SWB,and the EK II Due to the SWB Engl was not fit for frontservice anymore. Comes with a certificate that proves his own imprisonment.
Soldbuch WH (Heer) "Kanonier" -Landesschützen.Btl.396 - Kulmbacher Soldbuch of Heinz Kulmbacher who served with several different units. Kulmbacher served with artillery units as he was "Kanonier" He did also service with Landesschützen.Btl.396 as this was a unit for guarding POW. This is probably a good example how things got mixed up towards the end of the war,all kinds of units that were added together to create new forces. The last unit entry is "Art.Kampf-Btl.18" which has been a part of 18.Ar.Div. There are no award entries (which seems almost impossible) but it comes with 1 added " Nahkampftag" on 13-4-1944. Its a nicely filled inn "Salty" Soldbuch with some some personal adds and belongings as Kulmbacher had it in his pocket the last days of WW II.
Soldbuch WH (Heer) "Pferdelazarett 208" - Italy - Zillig Soldbuch of "Kanonier" Andreas Zillig who served with A.R.207 of the 207.Inf.Div. and as it was renamed within the 207.Sich.Div. With this division Zillig must have been in the northern part of Russia. As this Soldbuch is a very "salty" one it is partly readable. Zillig served within the "Pferdelazarett 208" and with this unit he has been in Italy (Resana,San Marco.Brussaporco,Loreggia,Piombino) Zillig has been awarded twice ,unfortunately only the KvK II m.Schw. is readable. This Soldbuch comes with 3 late war fieldmade "Ausweise" which gave Zillig permission to fulfill certain tasks. Although partly readable an interesting unit Soldbuch.
Soldbuch WH (Heer) "Pionier"- Thomalla Soldbuch of Johann Thomalla who served with several pioneer units as a "Funker". It seems that Thomalla has been involved also in the very first confrontation with Polish forces in Septembre 1939. Thomalla has been in Poland,Belgium,Russia,Finland and finally Italy. Thomalla served within several different units which are all present on the additional "Personalbogen". This document (which is in parts) gives all information concerning his service in WW II. Thomalla was awarded the KvK II m.Schw. It comes with a letter of his commander that states that Thomalla has been of importance many times as he kept the lines working all the time. This "salty" Soldbuch needs further research!
Soldbuch WH (Heer) "Sani"-Blum Soldbuch of Unteroff.Franz Blum who started as Unt.Offz.with " Res.Laz.Remagen" Bium served with some other hospitals and was promoted to San.Oberfeldwebel (Hauptfeldwebel) Among the entries are:"Inhaber im Besitze des Internatioanen Rotenkreuz-Ausweises" (in possesion of international Red Cross i.d.) and a private handgun 7,65 mm. Blum was awarded the EK II IN WW I and the KvK II m.Schw. on 20-4-1942. Nice underestimated branch of German Army Soldbuch!
Soldbuch WH (Heer) "Sonderführer -Z " - Schulte. Soldbuch of "Unteroffizier" Dr.Franz Schulte who served within several different "Wirtschaft" ( military housework) related units. These units were of great importance to keep the soldiers satisfied with a bit of "luxery". Schulte served within these units in Russia and was awarded the BWB and the KvK II m. Schw. for his efforts. This interesting Soldbuch (loose to cover) comes with the BWB award document issued to Schulte as he served as "Sonderführer-Z)". The entry picture shows Schulte wearing the special "Sonderführer" collartabs. Schulte was issued a Belgian "FN" handgun. It also comes with his military "Führerschein" (drivers license) Interesting Soldbuch!
Soldbuch WH (Heer) "Stürmbrigade Rhodos" - 389.Inf.Div.- Scholz Soldbuch of "Schützen" Max Scholz who served first with Inf..Rgt.65 as part of the 22 (LL) Div. Out of this regiment the "Stürmbrigade Rhodos" was formed in which Scholz would serve. The actions on Rhodos (Greece) in which Scholz was involved are interesting and should be looked for! During his military service Scholz was promoted to "Unteroffizier" Scholz ended up with exactly the same unit as Item .nr.51043 did. The only award entry is to faded to read. The Soldbuch has an extraordinary "Merkblatt" glued inn: (what to do when taken POW?) and a "Ausbildungsnachweis" Comes with 2 other neat documents. Rare Soldbuch! Straight from the source!
Soldbuch WH (Heer) "Waffen-Wachtmeister" 81.Inf.Div.- Arnold Soldbuch of Waffenmeister Arthur Arnold who started his military career as a "Wachtmeister" and was promoted twice to "Stabsschirmeister F" This rank is the same as "Stabsfeldwebel" with specialism horses. Arnold served with the 81.Inf.Div.and has therfor been in France and Russia. He was awarded the "Ostmedaille" and the KvK II m.Schw. Has unfortunatly been denazified in a "proper" way.
Soldbuch WH (Heer) - Afrika cufftitle - CCC - EK I - Doebblitz. Soldbuch of "Feldwebel " Walter Doebblitz who served with several different units which are unfortunately unknown. This "Zweitschrift" edition was issued on 16-3-1945 and all unit history is therfor unclear. Doebblitz was awarded the EK II,the "Ärmelband Afrika",BWB,the "Inf.Sturmabzeichen",the "Nahkampfspange ",the SWB and the EK I. What makes this Soldbuch extraordinary is the fact that Doebblitz entry picture shows him with "Nahkampfspange" and EK I. The last unit Doebblitz served with was Kraft.Park-Ers.u.Ausb.-Abt.4. Interesting Soldbuch!
Soldbuch WH (Heer) - schw.Werfer Rgt.2 - 15 -30 cm.Maultier - Kühne Soldbuch of "Hauptmann" Traugott Kühne who served with "Strassenentgiftüngsabt.133" (which would be renamed in schw.Werfer Rgt..2) as he started as "Wachtmeister" Later he was part of "schwere Werfer Rgt.2". This unit was equipped with 15 and 30 cm rocketlaunchers mounted on the "Maultier" to make them more manoeuvrable! I think Kühne was Lucky to be trained (shooting training for rocket launchers) during 8-11-1942 and 26-12- 1942. After his training he had a well earned holiday! This might have saved him of the fate of his comrades in "Stalingrad" Kühne was awarded the EK II on 7-9-1942 and the EK I on 5-1-1945. What makes this entry extraordinary is the fact (allthough partly rubbed) the EK I was issued by the " K.deur der 12 SS-Pz......Jugend" Comes with the "Sonderausweis" for his shooting exercise and his Wehrmacht drivers license issued at the "Nebel-Lehr - u.Versuchs-Abteilung" The picture of Kühne has been removed unfortunatly. Soldbuch is in a quite used condition ,complete and full of interesting entries (hanhguns,Marschkompass A,Dienstuhr,Doppelfernrohr etc.) It has the ++ factor! Altogether a "Smasher"!!
Soldbuch WH (Heer) - "Fünker" - Büchner Soldbuch of "Unteroffizier" Walter Buchner who served within Funk Komp.F (mot) (verst.) 674.

Great Soldbuch!
Soldbuch WH (Heer) - (s) Werfer Rgt.14 - Brünings Soldbuch of "Leutnant" Gerhard Brunings who started as "Kanonier" and was finally promoted (8 times!) to "Leutnant".

Later Brunings served with in Art.Rgt.970. Finally Brunings served within (s) s.W.R.14 (Schw.Werfer Rgt or heavy mortar regiment). Although there are no award entries (must have been several) there are many interesting small entries like:4 different handguns (Radom etc.),"Doppelfernrohr","Marschkompass","Dienstuhr" (D0077117H),2 "Taschenühren" (Junghans) Altogether an interesting Soldbuch that needs further research!
Soldbuch WH (Heer) - 22.Pz.Div. - Langer Soldbuch of Hugo Langer who served as "Schütze" (grenadier) within Schüzen Rgt.129 of the 22.Pz.Div.

In the Soldbuch is a short list of 4 "Nahkampftage" (close combat) days As the 45.Ind.Div.was destroyed at Bobruisk,it seems that Stranzinger had been eplaced to Volks Gren.Rgt 351(which officially does not has existed,Gren.Rgt.351 existed and was part of the 183.Volks Gren.Div.) or 351 had to be 352 which was part of the 246.V.G.D? As Stranzinger ended with V.G.D. 183 he participated in fightings in the "Aachen" area. Comes with some personal items as letters and pictures of his girlfriend? kept together for many years in a protective holder. Needs further research!
Soldbuch WH (Heer) - 51.Geb.Armeekorps - Hoff Soldbuch of "Kanonier" (gunner) Albert Hof who served with many different units. Hoffs last unit was 51.Geb.Armeekorps where he served as a staffmember. Hoff was finally promoted to "Oberschirrmeister" and ended his service in Italy in the "La Specia" area. Hoff was awarded the KvK II m.Schw. and the KvK I m.Schw. What makes this Soldbuch above average is the fact Hoff was " Berechtigt züm tragen d.Edelweiss a.d.Mütze" (allowed to wear the Edelweiss badge on the cap) A real "been there" Soldbuch with nice entries (Pistole PP) Great entry picture ! Great book!
Soldbuch WH (Heer) - A.R.60 - Lihlig Soldbuch of "Kanonier" Heinz Lihlig who served within the Art.Rgt.60. This was an independent artillery unit with heavy type guns (10-15 cms.)

Soldbuch WH (Heer) - Fest.St.Truppe LXXXIX - Le Havre - Walcheren - Brenner Soldbuch of "Schützen" Josef Brenner who served within "Festungs Stamm Truppe LXXXI" which were the defence unit of the "Atlantik" at Le Havre (France). Later Brenner would be transferred to "Festungs Stamm Truppe LXXXIX" in Walcheren (Holland) Brenner probably got mixed-up in the Alleid storm of the liberation of the Netherlands as he was in Vlissingen (Holland) at 8-9-1944. It comes with some interesting "Waffenausbildung" entries like L.M.G. 28 p (polish) ,l.Gr.W.36 (mortar) and the FK 236 b (Feldkanone 236 7,5 cm.belgian) and m.FL.W. (flametrower). All of them being typical fortress defence weapons! Great condition and historical interesting coastal-defence Soldbuch!
Soldbuch WH (Heer) - Heeresverwaltung (or administrative branch) - Welle Attractive and unusually seen Soldbuch belonging to Ernst Welle who served as a 'Zahlmeister' (or pay-master). Not necessary to mention that Welle has probably seen no active front-action. Nevertheless does the SB show lots of entries and therefore are 30 'Dienststempel' (or ink-stamps) noticable. Welle was awarded the loyal-service medal (or: Silbernes Treuedienstehrenzeichen für 25 Jahre Treue Dienste) and the KvK II.Kl. m.Schw. Due to intensive usage Welle period-altered his Soldbuch with carton-based material (such as a fortified cover-page). Still a very unusual and nice Soldbuch!
Soldbuch WH (Heer) - Kraftfahrer - Haselsteiner Soldbuch of the Kraftfahrer (driver) named Eduard Haselsteiner who served within several units as a driver. Haselsteiner must have driven lots of kilometers but saw not much of action since there are no award-entries entered. Allthough there are no award-entries the SB shows lots of other entries which makes it still a collectable Soldbuch. The SB is very salty but fully complete (1 page comes loose).
Soldbuch WH (Heer) - Panzerjäger - Kick Nice Soldbuch belonging to Fritz Kick who served with various Panzerjäger units. Kick must have seen some action but surprisingly enough there are no award-entries which could indicate a glued in page might have got lost over the years. Anyhow a nice, albeit very salty but fully complete Soldbuch with lots of entries!
Soldbuch WH (Heer) -Transport - Moll Soldbuch of "Fahnenjunker Feldwebel der Res." Otto Moll who served with Bau Btl.21 and Kraftfahr Ausb.Abt.8. Moll was finally serving within Kraftwagen Transport Abt.356 and with this unit Moll must have been in Northern Russia with "Heeresgruppe Nord" and probably Kurland. The Soldbuch has a nice added page which states Moll was given a second "Feldmütze" instead of a "Schirmmütze". No award entries but nevertheless a nice Soldbuch!
Soldbuch WH (Heer) 104.Jäger Div.- Schneider Soldbuch of "Unteroffizier" Herbert Schneider who served within Jäger Rgt.734 of the 104.Jäger Div. This division was active in Greece,Serbia and Croatia.

The last unit Harms served with was Gren.Rgt.544 as part of the 389.Inf.Div. Harms was awarded the "Kriegsabzeichen der Flakartillerie" ,the "Tátigkeitsabz.der Flakart." and the BWB. I obtained this Soldbuch with some others from a German private source where they were left on the attic for over 70 years!. Harms ended up with the same unit as "Rhodos"Soldbuch (Gren.Rgt.544) and were both filled in by the same man!!!!! One serving in the North and the other in the South brought together by fate! These man ended thier military career in the far South -East corner of German (Zittau) "Salty" condition Soldbuch of an interesting unit!.
Soldbuch WH (Heer) 16.Pz.Div. - Müller Soldbuch of "Gefreiter" Hans Müller who served within Pz.Gren.Rgt.64 of the 16.Pz.Div. This is a "Zweitschrift" issue due to the los of his first issue. Müller has been engaged in heavy fightings as he was awarded the "Panzerkampfabzeichen in bronze" (panzergrenadier) EK II,BWB and last but not least the EK I. These awards were obtained during the fierce fightings around Tscherkassy,Tarnopol,Cholm,the Hube Kessel and Weichsel area. Never had a picture in it. Great complete (2 loose pages) Soldbuch of a brave "Panzergrenadier" .
Soldbuch WH (Heer) 17.Inf.Div.- Krüdener Soldbuch of Peter Krüdener who served with Inf.Rgt.95 of the 17.Inf.Div.

(page14) What makes this heavy worn Soldbuch extra interesting is the list of 8 "Nahkampf/Sturmtage" As Baueke was hospitalized he had lost a lot of his equipment ,like a "Beutepistole" (enemy handgun). Although the entry picture has been thorn out and the book is real "worn" it is also a real "been there" one with lots of entries and great awards.
Soldbuch WH (Heer) 208.Inf.Div.- Pitzler Soldbuch of "Stabsgefreiter" Heinz Pitzler who served with I.R.337 and 338 of the 208.Inf.Div.

Soldbuch WH (Heer) 22.Div. - Schöttker Soldbuch of "Gefreiter der Veterinärtruppe" August Schöttker who served with "Veterinair Komp.22 of the 22.Div. Schöttker seems to have been involved in the invasion of Holland as he served with 22.Div. aka 22.LL Div. The Soldbuch is almost empty due to the fact Schöttker was released from active duty on26-10-1940.
Soldbuch WH (Heer) 22.LL. Div. - Ullrich "Ersatzsoldbuch" of "Oberschirrmeister (K)" (K)raftfahrzeuge (motor vehicle) this is comparable with " Senior Technical Sergeant" Emil Ullrich who served first with Art.Rgt.22 of the 22.LL.Div.(Luftlande Div.) With this division Ullrich might have been in Holland and certainly on the "Krim" and on Crete as he stayed in the "Kriegslazarett Kreta". Later Ullrich seems to have served with Art.Rgt.18 (mot.) of the 18.Pz.Div.and finally with Stab/K.N.A.1463 of the LXIII. Armeekorps (63.) which served on the "Westfront" Ullrich was awarded the "Ostmedaille",the "Krimschild" and the KvK II m.Schw. Ullrich owned a private handgun and was issued a "Marschkompass".

Soldbuch WH (Heer) 24.Pz.Div.Kühn Soldbuch of Gerhard Kühn who started his military career as a "Schützen" and was finally promoted to Uffz. Kühn served with several units which were part of the 24.Pz.Div. It looks ike Kühn joined the 24.Pz.Div.after it,s defeat in Stalingrad. Kühn was awarded the Ostmedaille,the BWB and the EK II. The soldbuch is well filled in with lots of entries. Kühn was issued a P38 and the MP40. It comes with "a list" with 1 "Sturmtag" and 2 other documents.

Soldbuch WH (Heer) 246.Inf.Div. - 462.Inf.Div. -- Fongern Soldbuch of Hans Tongern who served first with Inf.Rgt.404 of the 246.Inf.Div. This division was finally destroyed near Witebsk in August 1944. Fongern served meanwhile with the 462.Inf.Div.and was involved in fightings near Metz (France) This is about where Fongern was taken POW and shipped to the U.S. Fongern was promoted during his military career from "Schütze" to "Unteroffizier" Fongern was awarded the"Ostmedaille",the BWB,the Inf.Sturmabzeichen.and the EK II. This Soldbuch deserves the ++ status. Fonfern was stationed in Luxemburg. It comes with 8 listed "Nahkampftage" (Metz) and 2 listed "Sturmtage". Also 4 POW cards and 1 coming home card.. Fongern was issued a P38. Great Soldbuch of a brave "Unteroffizier"

Soldbuch WH (Heer) 28.Inf.Div.- 20.Pz.Div.-Ulitzsch Soldbuch of Fritz Ulitzsch who served with Inf.Rgt.7 as part of the 28.Inf.Div. He was transferred several times and ended his career with Pz.Gren.Rgt.112 as part of the 20.Pz.Div. Ukitzsch was awarded the "Ostmedaille " and the "Verw.Abz.in Schw." What makes this Soldbuch above average is the fact that it has been hit by a blunt shrapnel or something which went through the Soldbuch and must have injured Ulitzsch because of the clearly visible (human) staining.
Soldbuch WH (Heer) 28.Inf.Div.-Kirste Soldbuch of Kurt Kirste who served with several units but most of the time 28.le.Inf.Div which was later renamed in 28.Inf.Div. With this divsion Kirste must have seen quiet some action as he was involved in fightings in France and Russia (Krim,Sewastopol,Wolchow,Leningrad) Therfor Kirste was awarded the "Schutzwall-Ehrenzeichen",BWB,"Ostmedaille","Inf.Sturmabzeichen","Krimschild"and the EK II. Kirste was a well awarded brave soldier! This great "been there" Soldbuch has some shortcomings. Page 7,8,9,10,15,16 are gone and the picture of Kirsten has been ripped out. Possibly this Soldbuch was hit by a small shrapnell which could explain the small hole and staining. It may sound strange but allthough partly damaged it still is a great Soldbuch.
Soldbuch WH (Heer) 32.Inf.Div.-352 Volks Gren.Div. -Graf Nice " Zweitschrift"issue of Soldbuch that belonged to "Oberveterinär"(chief veterinarian) Helmut Graf. We sometimes forget the importance of especially horses during WW II. Graf was awarded the "Ostmedaille" ,KvK II m.Schw., the KvK I m.Schw.and the BWB. The unusual entry photo shows Graf with a very bright looking KvK I m.Sch. Graf was wounded during his service with 352.Volks Gren.Div.and was probably involved in the "Battle of the Bulge" Interesting Soldbuch!.
Soldbuch WH (Heer) 330.Inf.Div. - Elicki Soldbuch of Karl Elicki who served with Inf.Rgt.555 of the 330.Inf.Div. With this division Elicki has been to Russia(Welish,Orscha) and has seen quite some action as he was awarded the BWB,the"Ostmedaille",the EK II and the SWB.

Soldbuch WH (Heer) 416 Inf.Div.-Brenscheidt Soldbuch that once belonged to Aügüst Brenscheidt who served with Inf.Div.416 and was mainly stationed in Danmark. Brenscheidt was awarded the Verw.Abz.in Schw.on 14-3-1945 Note the picture of Brenscheidt which seems to be taken somewhere outside!

See the great entry picture! It comes wit 2 documennts concerning the award of the EK I. "Für besondere Tapferkeit vor dem Feind" (for extraordinary courage in front of the enemy) it says. Great Soldbuch of a brave "Unteroffizier"
Soldbuch WH (Heer) 85.Inf.Div.- Kloss. Soldbuch of Rudolf Kloss who served as "Unteroffizier/Feldwebel" with 6 different Inf.Div.during his wartime service. The divisions Kloss served with were 253.Inf.Div.,the 126.Inf.Div.,the 83.Inf.Div.,the 328.Inf.Div.,the353.Inf.Div.and the 85.Inf.Div. Never seen such a unit movement before. Especially the 85.Inf.Div. is an interesting one due to the fact it has been active in the "Normandie" and in Holland /Aachen area. This Soldbuch needs further research! Kloss was awarded the "Erinnerungsmedaille 1-10-1938",the BWB and the "Ostmedaille." There must have been more awards I think. Page 23/24 are gone. The Soldbuch has lots of entries with some interesting personal equipment ones like :pistol Belgian and P38,Doppelfernrohr 6x30,Taschenlampe,Marschkompass etc. It comes with the award document for the "Erinnerungsmedaille 1-10-1938" signed by the Oberst und Rgts.Kommandeur and some other additional papers. There is still some adventure in this Solodbuch. .

It comes with a resumption of his whereabouts during his service. Great Soldbuch of a brave "Stabarzt" who served i.a. Africa!
Soldbuch WH (Heer) A.N.A.635 "Armee Norwegen" - Schmidt Soldbuch of "Fünker" Baldüm Schmidt who served with Armee Nachrichten Abt.635 under command of the "Armee Norwegen". Schmidt was actually "Grenadier" but this was changed to "Fünker " and later "Oberfünker". It seems Schmidt was distributed a "Gewehr 41". Thi is not a well filled-inn Soldbuch but has a few detailes which makes it interesting again. Great M43 "Einheitsmutze" entry picture!
Soldbuch WH (Heer) Art.Abt.555-Holland-Direnga Soldbuch of Walther Direnga who served with Art.Abt.555 (mot) which was raised in Holland in 1943.

Soldbuch WH (Heer) Art.Nach.(gunner)-Ulbrich Soldbuch that belonged to Hans Ulbrich who served with Art.Ers.u.Ausb.Abt.116 which has been part of several divisions.

This was a independant Pi.unit which was attatched to the 16.Armee (Heeresgruppe Nord) Fuchs was awarded the Ostmedaille and the BWB. The entries for additional winter clothing indicate the circumstances in which Fuchs served. The Soldbuch comes with some extra personal writing of Fuchs. The fact that this is a (well used) second edition indicates that Fuchs probably lost his first edition during the fightings in Russia. "Been there" Soldbuch!
Soldbuch WH (Heer) Eisenbahn Pi.Lehrkomp. - Näuse Soldbuch of "Pionier" (pioneer) Manfred Näuse who served with Eisenbahn Pi.Lehrkomp. Näuse has been all the way till the end of WWII in service but it,s hard to find out what he exactly did. Anyway an interesting unit that needs further research.

Kopke was drafted late for service as this Soldbuch starts on 1-2-1945 (might be second issue ?) Instead of a picture there is a certificate included that states that Kopke had no personal picture available, which was a more often seen later-war problem!
Soldbuch WH (Heer) Gren.Kp.396-Schmidt Soldbuch of Karl Schmidt who served first with Feld.Ers.Btl.25 as part of the 25.Inf.Div.(mot).

This division is unfortunatly known because of it,s defeat in Stalingrad. A well "used" soldbuch with lots of entries. Allthough Steiniger must have seen quiet some action he was awarded the BWB only.
Soldbuch WH (Heer) Inf.Rgt.267-94 Inf.Div.-Beck Soldbuch of Albert Beck who served with 267 Inf.Rgt. as part of the 94 Inf.Div. Lucky enough Beck was transferred to an other unit otherwise he would probably ended in Stalingrad. Beck ended his military career as an Unteroff. Beck was awarded the EK II,the Verw.in Schw.and the Inf.Sturm in Silber so he has seen some action. Beck was issued a 98 K rifle and a Belgian pistol. Beck survived and was discharged on 12-6-1945 as he was serving with Pz.Auf.Abt.192?!?! Real "Frontschwein" Soldbuch!
Soldbuch WH (Heer) Landessch.Btl 375-Schurig Soldbuch of "Zahlmeister der Res."Werner Schurig who served as pay NCO with Landessch.Btl 375. Hard to say what he actually did but anyway Schurig was awarded the KvK II m.Schw. and the KvK I m.Schw. Schurig possesed also a private "Mauser" handgun.

Later-war "Ersatz" (or second issue) Soldbuch of Ruschas who was born in Latvia and served within the German army. There are only few entries in this late Soldbuch, one of them is an unreadable award-entry (see pictures). What makes this untouched Soldbuch interesting is the fact that it came with its accompanying "Umsiedler-Ausweis" (or immigration I.D.) which made it possible for Ruschas to become a German "Grenadier". Although its almost empty condition still a curious set!
Soldbuch WH (Heer) Oberstabsintendant-Müller Soldbuch of Wilhelm Müller who served as a"Stabszahlmeister" (paymaster) and finally as a "Oberstabsintendant" The Soldbuch starts witth a great picture of Müller who had a interesting career within the German army.

Soldbuch WH (Heer) Panzer Ers.Abt.11-Afrika-Kämper Soldbuch that belonged to Wilhelm Kämper who started his military career with Pz.Ers.Abt.11 as Panzerschützen. The 3.and 4.page have been professionally taken out for a(administrative?) reason probably during his POW imprissonment. Since 21-12-1942 Kämper served in Africa and was awarded the Panzerkampfabz.in Silber and the Erinnerungsmedaille für den Deutsch-Italienischen Feldzug in Afrika (Italian commemmerative medal ) Probably Kämper was taken POW in Africa and went to a POW camp in Georgia USA. This Soldbuch comes with a document issued by Kämper sent to the German army authorities in which Kämper informs when he is being drafted. It comes also with 1 cover (and a half) and a card sent by his mother to the POW camp. Allthough 2 pages missing,an interesting Soldbuch!

There is a document with this Soldbuch that prooves Kümmel has been in Russian captivity and a small doc that states he was released and sent home. Nice "worn"soldbuch.!

There,s a nice entry of being awarded the KvK II Kl.m.Schw. by Gen.der Flieger Kitzinger and the Verw.Abz.in Schw. Interesting "worn" Soldbuch of a brave "Sani"with lots of entries. Regrettable the picture is probably not the original one to the Soldbuch or changed later!?!?

Altogether an weel used but interesting unit Soldbuch.

Soldbuch WH (Heer) Zahlmeister (pay-master) - Feln Soldbuch that belonged to Jozef Feln who served as a pay-master (ie.NCO) at a: "Bekleidungslager" (or clothing depot). What makes this Soldbuch interesting is the special entries like: Dienstuhr (wrist-watch), Dienst-Stablampe of the make: Daimon (duty torch) and the fact that Feln was a member of the N.S.D.A.P. since 1933!! Nevertheless Feln has seen active service on the eastern front. He was awarded the Ostmedaille,the KvK II and the KvK 1. An above average interesting Soldbuch!
Soldbuch WH (Heer)-Priess Soldbuch that belonged to Robert Priess who came up at Wehrmeldeamt Krems a/Donau. It looks like Priess stayed with this organisation the rest of his military career. Nothing shocking,nevertheless a funny Soldbuch,therefore accordingly priced.
Soldbuch WH (Heer)Art.Rgt.119-11 Pz.Div.-Strümpel Soldbuch of Hans Strümpel who served as a gunner with Art.Rgt.119 as part of the 11 Pz.Div.in Poland,Rumania,Russia. Strümpel was awarded the KvK II m.Schw. and the EK II. There a nice entry of a "Stürm Angriff aüf Ralja" (attack on Ralja-Servia)

At at the end of WWII the "Harskamp"-camp served as a POW-camp that held many former Dutch SS- and/or KM-volunteers. Every marine-cadet received the same basic-training (which was always lectured at one of the: "Schiffstammabteilungen" somewhere. After having received their basic training the cadets were placed on board a ship or were used in the coastal-defence or alike. Berndorfer went to Marseille and boarded on a ship named: "Aurich". A nice and complete Soldbuch in used condition.
Soldbuch WH (Kriegsmarine) Schiffstammabteilung 14 - Breda/Holland - Sich Soldbuch belonging to Edmund Sich who enlisted as a cadet within the "Schiffstamm- abteilung 14" based in Breda/Holland where Sich received his basic naval-training.

Very good condition Soldbuch with some nice additional papers in it.
Soldbuch WH (Luftwaffe) - Stuka Vorschule - Herting Soldbuch of Alfred Herting who started his military service within the Flieger Ausbildungs Rgt.41 (or airmen training rgt.) in 1939 as a "Flieger" and was finally promoted to: "Unteroffizier" in 1944. It seems that Herting was specifically trained for "Flugzeug Mechaniker" (or aircraft technician) at the "Stuka Vorschule". So Herting was trained for the maintenance of the famous "Ju 87" or Stuka (mpf) dive-bomber! It looks like Herting was finally stationed within the: "Festung Posen" (Poznan-Poland). (There was actually a Focke Wulf complex within Festung Posen so that might have been the reason of his presence, although this cannot be ascertained). The WP comes with a very attractive "Nachturlaubs-Karte" that shows a remarkable spelling mistake (Stucka-Vorschule) as can be seen from the pictures. A nice and rarely seen SB!
Soldbuch WH (Luftwaffe) Flak-Rosenbauer Soldbuch that belonged to Wachtmeister Friedrich Rosenbauer who served with Res.Flakabt.304 and later with several Flak related units. Rosenbauer was promoted 7 times in his military career! It seems Rosenbauer was specialized in Flak shooting due to the fact he was sent to a special Schiesslehrgang (shooting training) and he earned in the years 1935 to 1940 badge for Flakart.?!?!?! As mentioned in the Soldbuch he earned his sharpshooters badge in 1936!!?? Nevertheless Rosenbauer was awarded the :Dienstausz. 4.Klasse,Medaille 10-10-1938 (Sudetenland),the KvK II m.Schw. and the E.K.II on 27-3-1945. Rosenbauer was issued a o8 pistol cal.9mm!

On 22 juni 1944 he received the following Fallschirmjäger-related equipment-items: 'Bluse', 'Hose', 'Stiefel' and 'Stahlhelm'. What makes this particular Soldbuch interesting is also the fact that Meier was involved in mine-clearing after the total surrender of German Army in Holland. The SB comes with a very interesting paper-inlay wherein is is stated that Meier (being a 'Pionier') helped to clear over 2 million mines in Holland (as is acknowledged within the specific certificate signed by both a German and Dutch senior-officer (see pictures). Meier was awarded the Verw.Abz. in Schw. on 1-7-1944. Allthough the pages 7-8,17-18 and 23-24 are missing and taken into account the worn condition of the SB (having some pages coming loose) the SB gives interesting and historical information about Meiers full military-career!
Soldbuch WH (Luftwaffe) with stretcherbearer I.D.- Bau-Flak-Schreiber Heer type Soldbuch of Hans (Johan) Schreiber who served with a Luft.Baueinheit and was later transferred to Flakabt.521 and later Flaksch.Werfer Abt.140 Overall fine complete condition with a special Luftwaffe gleud-inn page. Comes also with stretcherbearer I.D.of Schreiber
Soldbuch WH -Luftwaffe-Medic-Flak-Padberg Soldbuch of Dr.Werner Padberg who made a quiet impressive career fromsoldier to Dr.within the Luftwaffe.

One of those "average" but remarkable examples of a Luftwaffe Soldbuch!
Soldbuch WH Heer Inf.Div.45/Inf.Div.72 -Dauer Soldbuch that belonged to Karl Dauer who served with Gren.Rgt.133 as part of the 45.Inf.Div.and was engaged in fightings near Orel en Briansk.

(as this award document was thorn to several pieces and taped I,ve restored it as good as possible with special restoration tape) Albeit not perfect an interesting "Flak" grouping which is fairly priced.
Soldbuch/document grouping - Polizei Btl.171 - (Pol.Rgt Krakau) - Thum Unusual double Soldbuch with personal data document grouping of "Oberwachtmeister d.Schützpolizei" Stefan Thum who served with Polizei Btl.171 (aka Pol.Rgt Krakau).

Thum participatred in "bekämpfung von Partisanen" (anti partisan) around Smela and Tscherkassy (Russia). As the police units where all transferred in SS units Thum served within SS-Pol.Rgt.14 and must have seen bitter fighting at the Russian front. Thum was awarded the "Ostmedaille" and the "Inf.Sturmabzeichen" in silver for his efforts. While fighting in Slovenia Thum was killed around Rudolfswerth (Laibach) on 11-4-1944. The files mention that his "Erkennungs Marke" (dogtag) was not found as his body had been in enemy possesion.

Stated by a handwritten and added note,Engelhardt had to remove all swastikas and the eagle on the cover by German Army Headquartes on 30-5-1945.

Soldbuch/dogtag WH (Heer) - Volks Art.Korps 409 - Zink "Ersatz" Soldbuch and "Erkennungsmarke" (dogtag) of "Oberwachtmeister" Wilhelm Zink who served within Volks Artillerie Korps 409.

The Soldbuch has a great entry of a "Mauser HSc" and a glued-in paper that states that Holzapfel lost his handgun as he was wounded. It comes with Holzapfels "Erkennungsmarke" (dogtag),the award citation of the BWB and a document with cover concerning the content of his lost Luggage. Great and interesting Soldbuch grouping!

Soldbuch is in a real worn but complete condition. Allthough there are many entries there are no award entries. What makes this Soldbuch above average is the drivers licence accompanied by the Kraftfahzeugschein (vehicle registration papers) of a Opel lorry. It comes with a picture of Radu and a document concerning one of his last orders (24-4-1945)
Soldbuch/feldpost/drivers license WH (Heer) 11.Pz.Div.- Gerbracht Portfolio filled with Soldbuch,feldpost and drivers license of Wilhelm Gerbracht who served as a "Funker" (signaller) with Panzer Nachrichten Abt.341 which was renamed in Panzer Nachrichten Abt.89 as part of the 11.Pz.Div.

Soldbuch/Personalausweis Transportbrigade Speer Luftwaffe-Görtz Personalausweis/Soldbuch of Arthur Görtz who served with NSKK-Transportbrigade Speer.

Görtz had allready seen service in WW I and therefor he was awarded the EK II and the "Ehrenkreuz für Frontkämpfer" Görtz would not survive WW II as he died in SS Lazarett 504 on 28-4-1945. Uncommon issue of a Speer/Todt I.D!!

Eckert would be awarded the "Dienstauszeichnung IV Klasse","Deutsches Schützwall-Ehrenzeichen",KvK II m.Schw.,the "Ostmedaille" and the KvK I m.Schw.for his efforts. The Soldbuch has a great picture of Eckert showing his awards. There,s a nice entry that Eckert owned a private "Mauser" 7,65 calibre handgun. The photoalbum is a typical example of a private used army album with over a hundred pictures from his father (probably) to his postwar cars. In this mixed -up album are some very nice full dress wedding postcard pictures. Altogether an interesting Soldbuch with some nice extras!
Soldbuch/POW grouping WH (Heer) - 90.le.Afrika Div. - Africa - Bartschat Soldbuch/POW document grouping of "Schütze" Willi Bartschat who served within several different units before he went to Africa with Pz.Aufkl.Abt.190 of the 90.le.Africa Div.on 18-4-1943. As Bartschat was captured with his division on May 7 of 1943 (so he was only for 3 weeks in Africa) near Tunis he was not able to be awarded for anything. What makes this grouping above average is the records of his POW time. Bartschat was shipped from Africa to the U.S. onMay 18.1943 and has been in POW camps in Alabama and Georgia (USA) It comes also with a great big size photo of Bartschats "kompanie" in "Fort Benning internment camp" in Georgia. Interesting to see that some of the prisoners are still wearing thier awards! Great grouping of a "DAK" (Deutsches Afrika Korps) soldier who was Lucky not to be killed but to be taken prisoner of war.

The Soldbuch starts with the rank of "Schütze" which was changed later in "Zahlmeister". Finally Rühe was promoted to "Oberzahlmeister d.Res." in 1944. Rühe was issued a "Walther PP". The Wehrpass is a average filled-in one for a man in his position. Comes with ome additional documents,his "Führerschein" (drivers license) and 2 "Truppenausweisen".
Soldbuch/Wehrpass Luftwaffe - Schw.Flak - Italy - Rothdiener Soldbuch/Wehrpass of the: "Unteroffizier" Hans Rothdiener who served within various Luftwaffe "Schwere Flak-Artillerie" units. Rothdiener himself served as a: "Geschützführer" (commander) of a 2 cm.Flak 38. As Rothdiener lost his first issued paybook and was issued a "Zweitschrift"-issue (as can be read from the entries).

E.K.II dated 31-10-1941 and signed by Generalleutnant und Kommandeur der 15.Div. Ernst Eberhard Hell RK 1-2-1943 EL 4-6-1944. The second document is for a Verw.in Schw.dated 26-11-1941 because of a wound caught 60 km.south west of Moscow (!). His third wound/injury happened on 23-3-1943 and gave him because of the third time the opportunity to wear his silver badge.

A real eyecatcher is the POW index card with pictures of Meyer. This set tells a story!!! pictures,cards,etc.etc. All together 25 pieces which makes this a unique set (not one single piece is worth throwing away) and worth every Euro.
