    Hi Steven, not every page will be filled in, it is quite normal to find.

    The Wehrpass is a servicemans record of service. Kept back at his units HQ.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Hi Steven

    The basic field personnel record for all draft-eligible for males in Germany in the 1930's and 1940's.. It was created and issued during the first visit to a draft/recruiting office by the soldier in question, and was maintained by the individual until called up for duty, including in the service of the RAD. Upon entry of duty by a soldier, the Wehrpass was turned over to the soldiers unit for administration. The Wehrpass usually contained a civilian-dress photo on the inside front cover, unless the individual was already on active duty when his draft was reinstituted. A plethora of items were recorded in each soldiers Wehrpass including unit administrative notes and records, dates of assignments, promotions, awards, battles, major injuries or illnesses, etc. Upon a soldier’s discharge his Wehrpass was returned after all the field entries were transferred to the Wehrstammbuch - a series of documents covering national veterans used to document a soldiers service for claiming benefits, etc. If a soldier was killed or became MIA while on duty, the Wehrpass was sent to his next of kin by the soldier’s original recruiting office.
