- Soldbuch to Hauptmann Kurt Meyer. First issue from August 1939. This civil servant from Berlin may have had a meteorologist degree, as he was assigned as a candidate officer to the Wetterzug of Artillerie-Regiment 168, part of the 68. Infanterie-Division in his first front line posting. Late 1940, however, he was transferred from the Heer to the Luftwaffe. He ended up serving with Luftnachrichten and Flugmelde units for the remainder of the war.
- In May 1945, we see a late promotion to Hauptmann, signed by a Major of the Personalamt (PA) of the Oberkommando des Heeres (O.K.H.) on page 3. This suggest Meyer was in the Battle of (his home city) Berlin during the final days of the war. A last entry from June 1945 confirms he must have survived the war.
- Apart from the Kriegsverdienstkreuz 2. and 1. Klasse mit Schwertern (the latter entered on page 15), Meyer was awarded the both uncommon Reichssportabzeichen in Silber (page 19) and the Bulgarische Ehrenkreuz in Silber. A fifth award was crossed out, as he was "nicht zur Verleihung gelangt". Other interesting entries include the issue of S.42 and private 7.65 mm Mauser pistols, a map case and binoculars.
- The Soldbuch is a 100% complete and in very good condition.
