Wehrpass to Heinrich Tappe. Zweitschrift issue from 1943. Joining the Wehrmacht in January 1940, Tappe started off with Infanterie-Regiment 509 of the 292. Infanterie-Division in the French campaign of 1940. He was then with I.R.571 in occupied France, until his Kompanie was used to form Sch├╝tzen-Regiment 126 of the 23. Panzer-Division. After a hospital stay in Versailles and recovery time, Tappe rejoined his regiment now renamed into Pz.Gren.Rgt.126 on the southern sector of the Eastern Front. The next winter of 1942-'43 he was treated for frostbite in his hands, while fighting with the 23.PD on the river Don. Back on the front again in June 1943, Tappe served with a variety of units in the East and finished the war as a driver. He was awarded the Panzerkampfabzeichen in Bronze for his time with the 23. Panzer-Division.  

The Wehrpass is in very good and complete condition, including a uniform portrait photo. It comes with his POW discharge document from June 1945.
