- Wehrpass to Obergefreiter Otto Graf. This 18 year old baker volunteered for the Fallschirmjäger in 1942 and was trained in Stendal and with the Rekruten-Kompanie of Fallschirmjäger-Regiment 5. On 21th of June 1942, he was admitted to the 3. Kompanie of the Fallschirmjäger Sturm-Regiment. Deployed on the central sector of the Eastern Front, Graf was wounded a first time during the capture of the Rückerthöhe hill in Praniki, northwest of Smolensk. He was also awarded a Sturmtag for that night and earned the EKII besides the Verwundetenabzeichen for his wound.
- On 24th of May 1944, his Kompanie was sent to hold the lines on the invasion front near Anzio / Nettuno in Italy. On 26th of May he earned a combined Sturmtag and Nahkampftag defending the attacks southeast of Velletri, on the Caesar line. Five days later, on 31st of May 1944, he was reported missing and likely captured by the Allies during the Allied breakout of Anzio following the Operation Diadem offensive.
- The Wehrpass is in an excellent condition. Very nice Sturmangriffe list on page 47. It comes with his Ausweis issued October 1942 by the Fliegerhorstkommandatur Hildesheim - at that time he was already serving with the Sturm-Regiment.
