- Intriguing Wehrpass grouping to Hauptmann Jacob Löcken. Zweitschrift issue from June 1943 as he was a member of the 6. Armee destroyed at Stalingrad. Löcken commanded a number of units of the 306. Infanterie-Division on the Don, Mius and Dnjepr fronts, including the Schnelle Abteilung 306 and the Panzerjäger-Abteilung 306. He stood on the front line with his men, and after earning the Kriegsverdienstkreuz 2. Klasse in 1941, he went on to win the EK2, EK1, Sturmabzeichen and all three grades of the Verwundetenabzeichen in 1942-1943. The Wehrpass comes with a few very nice extras:
- A very unique souvenir from his five wounds leading to the gold wound badge is stored in the back pocket of the Wehrpass: the actual bullet that was removed from his collarbone in May 1942 (I.G. Steckschuss Schlüsselbein, 22.5.42), and also one of the srhapnel fragments that hit him in 1943.
- A rare "Verleihungsbegründigung" for his EK2 award. A detailed description of the fighting in May 1942, during which he was wounded, but refused to be taken to hospital while he took his Kompanie to victory. Notice that the bullet that comes with the grouping did not only lead to his Verwundetenabzeichen in Schwarz, but also to his first bravery award!
- His aluminium Erkennungsmarke from Inf.Ers.Btl.130.
- The Wehrpass is in perfect and complete condition. A portrait photo was never inserted.
