Soldbuch and Wehrpass from the Kanalinseln
I have been collecting soldbuch and wehrpass from German soldiers who were stationed in the Kanalinseln (Channel Islands), Jersey, Guernsey, Alderney, Sark, Herm during the German Occupation.
As I find these books I try to acquire them for my museum archive. I was just wondering whether any of you out there had any of these from the Islands in your collections. I would love to know of any out there that you may have.
All the best from Jersey.

Thought shall be the harder , heart the keener,
Courage the greater as our strength faileth.
Here lies our leader ,in the dust of his greatness.
Who leaves him now , be damned forever.
We who are old now shall not leave this Battle,
But lie at his feet , in the dust with our leader
