    Default Translation of wehrpass to Georg Kalemba

    Hi Chaps, I've been buying a few Wehrpasses recently & I am trying to work through translating them; but have got stuck with some of the writing. The first one is to a Georg Kalemba from I.R.436. On the below I can't work out his home town Bismarck??? I think it's probably in Silesia, now in Poland and has been renamed.

    Cheers,

    Richard.

    Thanks in advance for any help,

    Cheers,

    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

    Hi, here's a few more pages of interest. I think a couple are to do with RAD service, then his promotions & awards (Ostmedal, BWB & Krim Shield) & I think the last is discharge details, Cheers, Richard.
