    I am attaching better scans (black and white, Adobe file links) of the documents. I welcome any comments?

    This is a huge question to be honest. I don't know how much you know about these?

    The Soldbuch acted as a personal ID: it contained all personal details, next of kin, records of kit issued, weapons issued, wounds or hospital treatment, dates of leave over 5 days, awards, etc.

    Both are, of course, nice original books and these are always sought after.

    I particualy like the dual language edition German/Latvian version.

    Cheers, Ade.

    I am learning from this forum more about the content of these documents. What units were these soldiers members of? I gather the Latvian document shows this soldier was a "border guard". It seems that no photos were ever attached to these documents. The sample I've looked at here had photos.

    I am curious about what is written on the last entry on page 11 of the Latvian document. Thanks...for the help.

    Very, very, very nice!

    From SS #1:

    17SS PZ GR DIV
    He was married and his wife appears as next of kin. He was a farmer (landarbeiter). Born 17 DEC 07 which made him 37 when captured! Served from 1 APR 44 (April Fools) to 8 MAY 45. He was issued a rifle on 1 APR 44 with serial # 8398. He was issued equipment three times in 1945, not sure why.

    At the page 16 I'am wondered that he recieved the service money up to Oktober 1945. Even as POW the book was properly filled

    The Area Control Form I believe was issued by the British Discharge Headquarters in Germany. That means he was a prisoner in my mind. It also shows what camp he was in but I can't read the information on it.

    I'm not sure of the purpose of the release certificate dated 3 MAY 45.

    Another document also shows his service ending on 8 MAY 45 but is dated 6 MAY 45.

    The dates don't appear to match up very well on when his service ends. It does look like he was paid 30 marks on four times from JUL-OCT 45.
