    Default Wehrpass Name Deciphering

    Hi everyone,

    I bought this wehrpass over the summer, and am looking to do some more research on it. I am having trouble reading the name of it's owner as it is in the old style German handwriting. If anyone could help read out the name, then I could at least get started researching the individual.

    There should be other entries on this Wehrpass with the name listed as well, besides this signature...could you post those, please? I can decipher the first name as Kurt...
    cheers, Glenn

    If he was killed in action there might be an entry in the WP as well...The more you show us, the more we can help...

    Nothing came up on the volksbund site so I guess I'll start a thread on the wehrpass as a whole to find out more about Kurt. Unfortunately I don't know which pages would give me important information,but I'll do my best. If only I had the B&D publishing book on the Wehrpass and soldbuch, but it's so darned expensive...

    Thanks again,
    -Jake
