• Wehrpass to Unteroffizier Theodor Reinersmann. First issue from January 1937. Reinersmann was trained as a pioneer, as Funker, and had a Fahrlehrer training with the NSKK Motorsportschule Helsa. He served with the 2. (mot.) Kompanie of Pionier-Bataillon 46 from November 1937 on. Deployed as Heerestruppe in the Western Front, this fully motorised pioneer unit saw some particular action in Holland and Belgium: the clearing of the Dutch border near Sittard, bridge construction on the Maas-Schelde canal in Lanklaar and the Albertkanal in Genk, and more bridge construction in Huy (Meuse), Charleroi (Sambre), Tournai (Schelde) and Menin (Lys). 
  • In October 1940, his Kompanie was used to form the 1. Kompanie of Panzer-Pionier-Bataillon 92, part of the the newly formed 20. Panzer-Division. With this unit, he was killed in action only 2 weeks into the Russian campaign, on 7th of July 1941 in Ulla, Belorussia. He received a promotion to Unteroffizier that same month; likely posthumous. Reinersmann was awarded the Deutsches Schutzwall-Ehrenzeichen and the SA Sportabzeichen.  
  • The Wehrpass is in excellent and complete condition. It comes with two more documents sent to his family after his death.
