- Wehrpass to Gefreiter Johann Lindner. First issue from April 1939. Lindner was an older Austrian restaurant owner who served as a pioneer in the Austrian army from 1915 to 1918, then was called up as a Landesschütze in the German Wehrmacht in December 1939. He served with Landesschützen-Bataillon 864 in his home city Krems until his release in October 1940. Interesting to see that Lindner received specific training in the guarding of POW's ('Bewachung von Kriegsgefangenen'), and also the Steuermannprüfung for pioneer boats.
- Called up again in 1944, Lindner further served in some reserve units, and ended the war with the Nachschub-Bataillon (K) 119 in the area of Bautzen, Dresden. There, he was taken POW by the Russians. Lindner died as a POW in Breslau, nowadays Wroclaw in Poland, on July 15th, 1945.
- Some damage due to rusting rivets, else the Wehrpass is in a good and complete condition, with no denazifications and a portrait photo attached.
