• Wehrpass to Unteroffizier Heinrich Döhnke. First issue from July 1938. Döhne was called up by the Heer in May 1939 and by the outbreak of the war he served with Infanterie-Regiment 15 (mot.), part of the motorised 29. Infanterie-Division. He followed the path of the 29.ID in the Polish campaign (Radom, Konskie, Warschau, ...), in the French campaign (Somme, Saint-Omer, Pontarlier, ...) and on the Eastern Front. 
  • After three months of fighting on the central sector of the Eastern Front, Döhnke was severely wounded on 29th of September 1941 by shots in his neck, lungs and left thigh. It was a small miracle he survived these wounds, he spent more than a year in hospital and was finally released by the Wehrmacht in December 1942. At that same time, his old comrades of the 29.ID were surrounded at Stalingrad and would soon meet an even darker fate.  
  • Döhnke was awarded the EKII, Infanterie-Sturmabzeichen, the Verwundetenabzeichen in Schwarz and the Verwundetenabzeichen in Silber - the latter likely following an amputation of his left leg. His fifth award - the SA Sportabzeichen - is visible on a nice postcard sized studio portrait that comes with the Wehrpass.  
  • Wehrpass in excellent and complete condition.
