- Wehrpass and award document grouping to Obergefreiter Anton Fiedler, who was wounded three times with the 268. Infanterie-Division on the Eastern Front.
- Fiedler joined the Wehrmacht in December 1940 and after basic infantry training joined Infanterie-Regiment 468 in April 1941. This unit was part of the 268. Infanterie-Division and Fiedler would continue to serve with this division, first with Grenadier-Regiment 468, then with Grenadier-Regiment 488 and last with Kampf-Bataillon 488. From June 1941, he saw a lot of action on the central sector of the Eastern Front: Smolensk, Wjasma, Tula, Juchnow, Bryansk, ...
- During his time on the front, Fiedler was awarded the the Kriegsverdienstkreuz 2. Klasse in February 1942, the Ostmedaille, the Verwundetenbazeichen in Schwarz for his first wound in September 1942, the Eisernes Kreuz 2. Klasse in August 1943, and the Verwundetenabzeichen in Silber following his third wound in August 1943. This final heavy wound (shrapnel in his knee) meant the end of his military career, after his release from hospital in July 1944, he was discharged from the Wehrmacht.
- The Wehrpass is a Zweitschrift from October 1942 in a used condition; the cover is loose and pages 21-22 are missing. Still, all his units, three wounds and five awards are properly entered. The Wehrpass comes with his award documents for the Verwundetenabzeichen in Schwarz and the Verwundetenabzeichen in Silber. Nice unit designation for the Kampf-Bataillon 488. Also added are two postwar documents from his doctor, as he kept suffering from his wartime wound.
