H049189 WEHRPASS. (Wehrpaß)

BACKGROUND: With the reintroduction of conscription in 1935, the OKW, Oberkommando der Wehrmacht, (High Command of the Armed Forces), activated the Wehrersatzdienststelle, (Recruiting Offices), throughout Germany to process and administer the call up procedure. When individuals received their registration notice they were to report to the appropriate recruitment center where they would be issued a Wehrpass, until they were inducted into active duty. On induction to active military service the Wehrpass was exchanged at the recruitment office for the Soldbuch. The recruitment office would retain the Wehrpass and chronicle the individuals active service record in it. The Wehrpass was issued in three slightly different variants with minor modifications. Generally if the individual was killed in battle the Wehrpass would be forwarded to his next-of-kin as a memento of his service time.

PHYSICAL DESCRIPTION: Third pattern, (circa 1942-45) Wehrpass with a charcoal grey printed Wehrmacht style eagle with out-stretched wings and Latin script, "Wehrpaß", to the slightly crinkle textured grey card stock cover. Wehrpass with photo of owner. All pages with entries are photographed.
