• Small Wehrpass grouping to Obergefreiter Alexander Tasler. First issue from May 1937. This older bookkeeper was only called up in April 1942 at the age of 37, and received training as Rechnungsführer, as horseback driver and on the captured French rifle Gewehr 302 (f). Not very surprising, he primarily served with reserve and occupation units such as the Infanterie-Regiment 375 of the 454. Sicherungs-Division in the Caucasian Mountains (1942-'43), where he was also wounded in the left upper arm on 5th of March 1943.  
  • After his recovery, Tasler joined the Sicherungs-Bataillon 1022 in occupied France in the Summer of 1944. With this unit, he saw action against French partisans, nicely described as "Einsatz z. Terroristenbekämpfung in Nord-Ost-Frankreich" on page 32. In August 1944, the Bataillon is reported in the Besançon area. Two months later, the remains of the Bataillon were absorbed by the 189. Infanterie-Division, and Tasler ended up in the staff of Grenadier-Regiment 1214, fighting at the "Burgundische Pforte" (Trouée de Belfort) and on the Oberrhein. He survived the retreat to the Heimat and was released from service a week before war's end.  
  • The Wehrpass is in a very good and complete condition. It comes with a number of extra documents: a Bereitstellungsschein from 1942,  a Beurteilung, Ausbildungsnachweis, his release certificate from Gren.Rgt.1214 in May 1945, and his POW data sheet and POW certificate of discharge from January 1946.
