- Grouping to Sanitäts-Obergefreiter Josef Brücklmayer. Josef was born in Regensburg, 1903, as the son of the unmarried Anna Högner. An investigation on his German blood from 1944 would later show that his father was André Lambert, a bookkeeper from Marseille, France. His mother later got married to the state inspector Karl Brücklmayer and Josef would assume the last name of his stepfather.
- Brücklmayer worked as a dentist in Regensburg and was called up by the Luftwaffe in October 1940. After various postings as a Sanitäter on the airfield of Straubing (Bayern) and a few other units, he was transferred to his final unit in March 1944: the Sanitäts-Park of the Fallschirm-Armee in Gardelegen. He worked in the pharmacy under command of the Stabsapotheker. Though he was of course not a jumping para, he did receive the Fallschirmjäger Bluse, Hose and Stahlhelm, as entered in his Soldbuch. He earned the KVKII mit Schwertern, was taken POW in May 1945 and survived the war.
- The grouping consists of:
- Soldbuch, first issue from October 1940. Interesting entries include FJ equipment, a private 7.65 mm Sauer pistol entered on page 14, and an intriguing last leave on January 11th, 1945. The reason was officially entered as a life threatening disease of his boss at work, but it seems to much of a coincidence that his 17 year younger wife Betty had given birth one day earlier to their first child, Bernhard. The Soldbuch has the pages loose but is a 100% complete, with a nice portrait photo showing the KVKII ribbon in wear.
- Photo album, complete with 58 photos. Very nice military cover with metal Luftwaffe eagle emblem. Includes several portraits of Brücklmayer (with glasses), of his officers and friends. Photos of his barracks time, the pharmacy in Gardelegen, and more.
- Six more private photo.
- Seven documents, including a medical examination, the forementioned research into his parents, and his driver license.
