- Wehrpass to Feldwebel Alfred Schubert. A very early example started in 1936, this Wehrpass carries a military portrait, since Schubert had entered service with Infanterie-Regiment 51 in November 1935. He served two years and was then called up again in August 1939. He missed the invasion of Poland with the 221. Infanterie-Division due to problems with his appendix, but saw his first action in France 1940 with Infanterie-Regiment 633 of the 557. Infanterie-Division. He saw extensive action on the Oberrhein front, and earned a very early Infanterie-Sturmabzeichen, issued in June 1940! This is the earliest example we have seen entered in a Wehrpass.
- Promoted to his first NCO rank after France, Schubert fought on the Eastern Front with the staff of Grenadier-Regiment 575 of the 304.ID, and later the staff of Infanterie-Regiment 667, part of the 370. Infanterie-Division. After a serious wound, for which he received the Verwundetenabzeichen the day before his death, Fw. Alfred Schubert was killed in Melitopol on 19th of October 1943.
