Military ID grouping to Gefreiter Georg Lindinger. Losing both his parents at the age of 15 at the start of the First World War, 1914, did not prevent him from joining the military in 1918 and seeing his share of action in France. He also served in early post-war units like the "Volkswehrkompanie" of I.R.23 until 1920. Called up again in August 1939, Lindinger was in Poland and on the Western Front with Inf.Rgt.342 of the 231.ID. Released because of his higher age after the French campaign, he joined the Luftschutz in 1943. Acting as a Truppführer in the Luftschutzpolizei, he earned the Luftschutz-Ehrenzeichen and served in response to the countless Allied bombings on Nürnberg until the end of the war.
The grouping consists of:
- Luftschutz Dienstbuch, first issue from May 1943. This Soldbuch-like ID has many interesting entries: no less than eight different air attacks in which he served in 1943-'45, an award entry for the Luftschutz-Ehrenzeichen 2. Stufe besides his Frontkämpfer-Ehrenkreuz, lots of equipment and his oath swearing ceremony from 1944. The Dienstbuch has some minor water damage and is missing the back cover.
- Wehrpass, first issue from January 1937, complete and in very good condition.
- Discharge document by Inf.Ers.Btl.342 in Bayreuth, June 1940.
- Two complete first type Arbeitsbucher with many entries, to Georg Lindinger and his wife Gretel.
- Militärpass with lots of entries, includes active service with the 3rd Bavarian I.D. and fighting with I.R.23 in France, 1918.
