- Soldbuch grouping to Leutnant Rolf Seekamp. First issue from February 1941. Seekamp was the son of a merchant in Bremen, and joined the reserve units of the 22. (Luftlande) Infanterie-Division in Verden immediately after leaving school. His first active unit was the 5. Batterie of Artillerie-Regiment 120, fighting with the 110. Infanterie-Division on the Eastern Front: he saw action on the central sector near Smolensk, Rzhew, Schisdra, Bobruisk, etc. Seekamp earned the Ostmedaille, EKII and Verwundetenabzeichen in Schwarz before attending a Fahnenjunkerschule in June 1944, leading to his promotion to Leutnant.
- It appears that after his promotion to officer, Seekamp was wounded twice in the final stage of the war. The medial page shows a hospital entry on 17th of March 1945 in Anklam, and then another on in the Ortslazarett Gelbensande on 1st of May 1945. Both locations are near Greifswald, on the Ostsee coast. Possibly he was mobilized through his last reserve unit, the Stammbatterie of Art.Ers.Abt.22. This Abteilung fought on the Weser at the end of the war. In any case, notice that on an extra portrait photo, Seekamp can be seen wearing the Verwundetenabzeichen in Silber, confirming he was indeed wounded again at the end of the war.
- The Soldbuch is in an excellent and complete condition. It comes with his matching aluminium Erkennungsmarke and a few extra photos and documents, including the said postcard sized portrait.
