• Wehrpass to Sanitäts-Uffizier Herbert Böttcher. Zweitschrift issue opened in October 1944 in Köslin, after the destruction of the 12. Infanterie-Division on the Eastern Front, at the time of its recreation as the 12. Volks-Grenadier-Division. Böttcher was a real veteran of his unit, serving as a stretcher-bearer with the 12.ID (12.VGD) for five years. He obtained four awards in the East: the Ostmedaille, the KVKII, the EKII and the rare Demjanskschild. Fighting on the Ruhr, in the Hürtgenwald and near Aachen from September 1944, Böttcher also participated in the Ardennes Offensive from mid December 1944. After the division was pushed back from the Ardennes, Böttcher and the majority of his comrades went into American captivity, which is also confirmed in the Wehrpass.
