    Prost ! Steve.
    "The German Army is the perfectly adapted, perfectly running Machine. The difference is that the Germans are organised with a view to War...with the cold, hard, practical and business-like purpose of winning victories."
    G.W. Steevens - The Daily Mail (1897)

    Going back to the Wehrpass entries:

    Info on Inf Regt 89

    Infanterieregiment 89 - Lexikon der Wehrmacht

    and the connection with Inf Regt 255:

    Lexikon der Wehrmacht - IR 255

    Cheers, Ade.

    Hi Mart would it be possible to get a more clear picture of the photo contained in the wehrpass.
    From behind the glare I can just about make out a lightish colour shirt and a black tie.
    Maybe some kind of uniform?
    Thanks in advance.

    Hi Mart, don't know how much of the Wehrpass you have read yet, but he saw service in the French Campaign in 1940 and ended up in North Africa in 1941.

    Trained on the Mauser K98k, MG34, P08 (Luger) and Hand Grenade.

    Enlisted in the town of Parchim, Mecklenburg.

    Cheers, Ade.

    One other thing mart, actually two, firstly can we have a look at the flip side of the olympic pin its always a good reference detail for the hobby and collectors.
    And secondly what is the date of birth given in the werhpass it would be interesting to see at what age he volunteered for service in 1936.
    once again thanks in advance.
