    Hello from a new member!

    I have been researching your forum's amazing help for those who have Wehrpasses, and I hope that I might find help with a document that I have.

    This Wehrpass was among a relative's papers, and the family is at a loss as to how it came to him and why. First, we should start by translating it, yes?

    Any help with understanding to whom this document belonged would be greatly appreciated. Thank you very much!

    Yes. Good idea. I'm new, and didn't know it would upload like that. Learning curve! Please hold for individual photos...

    No problem! It will just make it easier for people to translate for you. Right now each individual photo must be downloaded in order to view them.

    Here are the individual photos from inside the pass.

    Please forgive my learning how to do this properly. If this is not easy to read, I appreciate your feedback on how to post properly.

    Thanks again!

    The Wehrpass originally belonged to Rudolf Erich Schwoch who was born 28th June 1918 in Neukoeln. He registered for military service in Berlin on 30th June 1938 and was called up on 2nd December 1939 but I can't see what the unit he first served with due to the poor quality of the scan.

    From 1st April 1940 to the wars end he served with the following units (in order):
    7 Kompanie Schützen Rgt 8
    Stab Generalkommando XXXXI Armeekorps
    Kommando 7 Panzer Division
    Stab Generalkommando XXXXI Armeekorps
    6 Kompanie Panzer Regiment 3
    7 Kompanie Panzer Regiment 3
    6 Kompanie Panzer Regiment 3.

    On the 1st June 1944 he reached his highest rank which was that of Unteroffizier. He was awarded the Iron Cross 2nd Class on 2nd June 1940 and he was also awarded the Eastern Front Medal and what appears to be the Drivers Badge in Bronze & then Silver grades. He was awarded the KvK II Kl mit Schwertern on 30th January 1944 and the Panzer Assault Badge on 29th January 1945 (the second from last image that you have posted shows the three seperate combats (in Section 4) he was involved in that won him the Panzer Assault Badge).
    It looks like he received an injury on 21st June 1944 but I can't make out what the word is.

    The lists of dates and places that you can see on Pages 32 & 33 show what campaigns he was involved in while serving with the various units. It looks like he was trained as a driver.
