Small Wehrpass grouping to Oberleutnant Werner Dismer. Finishing school at the age of 21, Dismer volunteered for the Wehrmacht in 1935 and became an officer in 1937. He was also trained as a Dolmetscher (translator) in English and was still in active service when the war broke out in 1939. By that time, he was just promoted to Oberleutnant and moved to Artillerie-Regiment 186, part of the newly formed 86. Infanterie-Division. Dismer saw his first action in the French campaign, earned the EKII there, and was appointed Batteriechef of the 1./A.R.186 in July 1940. In this function, he was wounded twice in 1941 on the Eastern Front, the last time on 21st of December with shrapnel parts all over his body (breast, both arms, both legs, ...). He succumbed to these heavy wounds on the day before Christmas. Despite his early death, Werner Dismer earned no less than seven awards: the DRL Sportabzeichen, the SA Sportabzeichen, Dienstauszeichnung IV. Klasse, the Westwall-Ehrenzeichen, the EKII, Verwundetenabzeichen in Schwarz, and last the EKI in October 1941.
The grouping consists of:
- Wehrpass in excellent and complete condition. Notice the opening page 1 has only been signed off after his death in 1942, however the Wehrpass is an unquestionable first issue from around 1936-'37.
- Wehrmacht-Führerschein with nice portrait photo.
- Prewar Führerschein, 1933.
- Letter by a comrade sent to his parents after his death.
- Two business cards produced while with Art.Rgt.6 in Osnabrück.
- Mitgliedskarte of the Turnklub Jahn, 1931.
- Cover of his "Der Stahlhelm" Mitgliedsbuch with portrait photo
The copies of WASt archive cards contain more information about his death and burial; these are shown here just for reference.
