• Wehrpass to Obergefreiter Josef Troesch. First issue from November 1939. Troesch joined the Wehrmacht in 1940 and his first active unit was Infanterie-Regiment 462, part of the 262. Infanterie-Division which he joined as it was fighting on the Maginot line in France. Troesch was still with them as the division entered the battles in Russia in June 1941. He saw a lot of action on the Stalin Line, the Dnjepr, Schitomir, Kiew, Brjansk, the Orel, Moscow until he was finally wounded in his belly on the 29th of December 1941. 
  • That same month of his wound, he earned the Eisernes Kreuz 2. Klasse, the Infanterie-Sturmabzeichen and the Verwundetenabzeichen in Schwarz. The Ostmedaille would follow later. He stayed in hospital until late 1942 and was judged unfit for front service after. He served with backward units like the Wachkompanie 709 in Romania, and then from January 1944 until the end of the war with Landessch├╝tzen-Bataillon 884 in Norway, where he was awarded his fifth decoration, the Kriegsverdienstkreuz 2. Klasse by the Kriegsgefangenen-Bezirks-Kommandatur Norwegen. 
  • Except for the removed portrait photo, the Wehrpass is in a good and complete condition.
