Wehrpass and award document grouping to Unteroffizier Johannes Künneke. Called up in July 1939, Künneke served the entire war with the same division: the 96. Infanterie-Division, fighting on the Western and Eastern fronts. He was mostly with Infanterie-Regiment 287 (later Grenadier-Regiment 287), but also with the divisional reconnaissance unit, Füsilier-Bataillon 96, for some time in 1943 and 1944. The 96.ID fought mostly on the Leningrad and Wolchow fronts, but later also in the Ukraine and Hungary, ending the war in Austria. For his long activity as an MG gunner with the 96.ID on the Eastern Front, Künneke was awarded the Verwundetenabzeichen in Schwarz, the Eisernes Kreuz 2. and 1. Klasse, and the Infanterie-Sturmabzeichen in Silber.
