WWII Luftwaffe Fallschirmjäger Soldbuch/ Wehrpaß Lot-This lot contains the Soldbuch and Wehrpaß for Luftwaffe Fallschirmjäger (also Regierungsrat) Feldwebel Richard Georg von Hartel. He was born on Christmas Eve in 1909 in Troppau. The Wehrpaß has many notes on his units. He trained with "Panzernahkampfmittel" on things such as "Panzerfaust, Panzerschreck, Gewehrgranatgerät".  Also seen is training on the MG 34 and 42. The Soldbuch was issued 1.3.44 but there are entries ranging in dates from 21.5.41 through 3.5.45. The picture shows him in his Luftwaffe blouse. He was awarded the Frontflugspange für Kampfflieger in Bronze (Clasp for Medium and Heavy Dive Bomber), the EKII and the Air Gunner Badge. He trained at Fallschirmschule II from 12.12.1944 - 19.1.1945. There is a lot more information than I can write down here! The condition of the Wehrpaß is near excellent with some minor wear and discoloration. The Soldbuch is in very good condition with some tears, discoloration and wear to the pages (cover is near excellent). There are additional pages added to the Soldbuch. A fantastic grouping that deserves more research!
