- Wehrpass to Unteroffizier Richard Altmann. First issue from August 1936. This maried father of two children was called up by the Wehrmacht during the general mobilisation of August 1939. As he was of higher age, he mostly served with Heer occupation and security units like Infanterie-Regiment 656 of the 386.ID in 1940, and then a very long time with Landesschützen-Bataillon 344 guarding POW's in his home town Berlin (1941-'44).
- Forwarded to the Italian front in February 1944, Altmann finally did see some combat with Nachschub-Bataillon (B) 147 in Italy: his Bataillon was assigned to the 14. Armee, retreating from the Anzio beachhead to the center of Italy, then to the Apenines. On 15th of June 1944, Altmann was badly wounded in Italy by shrapnel in his right arm. He was evacuated to the Heimat, but lost his arm. Awarded with the Verwundetenabzeichen in Silber for this wound and receiving a last promotion to Unteroffizier in July 1944, Altmann was discharged from the Wehrmacht later that year.
- The Wehrpass has the cover loose, else it is in a very good and complete condition.
