Small Wehrpass to Obergefreiter Werner Blumberg. This politically active NSDAP member was working at the Amtsgericht court in his birth city Remscheid. He also had a leading role in the local SHD (Sicherheits- und Hilfsdienst) branch, and this would be the direct reason for his military activation in April 1942, when the SHD was incorporated into the Luftwaffe. He served the remainder of that year with Luftschutz-Abteilung 27. Ironically, while serving in aerial protection units, his own home was completely destroyed in an Allied bombing in 1943 and he was forced to move from Remscheid to Solingen, the residence of his wife Loni, whom he maried that year.  

January 1943, Blumberg moved to the Flak branch of the Luftwaffe, serving with a number of light anti-aircraft units protecting the industry on the Rhine and Ruhr rivers. These included the leichte Flak-Abteilung 884 (Moers) and the leichte Flak-Abteilung 838 (Duisburg). His last unit, leichte Flak-Abteilung 838, would lead him to the Westwall area on the Dutch-German border area west of Duisburg in September 1944, and then also fighting in this border area near Venlo later that year. In April 1945, the remnants of the Abteilung (likely including Blumberg) surrendered in the Ruhr pocket.
