- Soldbuch to Oberschütze Johann Thenner, a Panzerjäger in the Felherrnhalle division. First issue from October 1941.
- Thenner was originally trained as a Pionier and stayed in reserve units for a long time. In December 1943, he was finally added to an active unit, which was being sent from Northern France to the Eastern Front: the Panzerjäger-Kompanie of the Grenadier-Regiment Feldherrnhalle, part of the elite 60. Panzergrenadier-Division "Feldherrnhalle". The division joined the 3. Panzerarmee fighting near Vitebsk (Belorussia). Thenner must have been one of the first losses of the division: on the 22nd of December, 1943, he was wounded by shrapnell of an aerial bomb in his bottom. It was only a minor wound (probably greeted with laughter of his comrades), and he could stay with his unit.
- After the Battle of Witebsk, Thenner was air-lifted with the division to the northern sector of the Eastern Front, where they would distinguish themselves in the Battle of Narva. At this point, he belonged to the divisional Panzer-Aufklärungs-Kompanie Feldherrnhalle. Thenner was issued a complete camouflage uniform ("Tarnanzug") for the winter conditions. This clothing proved to be insufficient: on the 3rd of March 1944, Thenner was hospitalized with third degree frostbite in his left foot. He was awarded the Verwundetenabzeichen in Schwarz and would stay in hospital for the remainder of the war.
- Excellent Panzer-Aufklärer Soldbuch of a member of the elite Feldherrnhalle division, victim of the extreme winter conditions on the Eastern Front. The Soldbuch is a 100% complete with all pages and no denazifications, and a nice portrait photo with an interesting uniform variation (converted Austrian uniform?).
