    Default Small Feldgendarmerie Group

    Here is a small group I just obtained. The guy wasn't anything special and the book is well worn, though nice it came with the guys ID disc. He went from Pz. Abwehr into the Feldgendarmerie and by the end of the war was tossed into Festungs Infanterie Bataillon 1447 for the battle for Bratislava.

    The entry for his Feldgendarmerie unit is rather faintly stamped.

    Came with his driving licence which was nice as I didn't have a Feldgendarmerie issued licence.

    I think having the two most personal items, the tag and the Soldbuch together is really nice. You can see his face had aged in the years between 1940 and 1943.

    Any wounds, awards etc?

    Thanks for sharing them.

    Cheers, Ade.

    His unit stamp is clearest on the cover of the driving licence. 1 Kompanie, Feldgendarmerie Abteilung 521 (mot.)

    Nothing special about the guy, but my reason for buying the set was not so much him, but the unit and who he would have served alongside. I wonder if anyone can guess who that would be ?

    Hi Ade,

    Yes its always nice to get "extras" like the dogtag coming along with a Soldbuch. No awards. What tickled my fancy was who he would have served with.

    That was quick Ade ! Spot on. I have seen stuff to Feldgend Abt 521 before, but this guy was actually in the same Kompanie, a much smaller unit so would almost certainly have known Gustav Schwarzenegger. Maybe even Gustav was his immediate superior.

    Arnold Schwarzenegger's father was in the Wehrmacht? I didn't know that.
