Guys,

Just rescued this out of the skip while dropping off some junk.  Can't make out what was wrong with him medicaly and there are no awards?  Perhaps a mental case?

I wish I could find stuff like that in the bins - not that I hunt through bins on my days off obviously! 

Very interesting unit that he served in (s.Art.Rgt 814) if you are in to big guns. They were equipped with the 24 cm Haubitze 39 for the 1940 Western Campaign and assigned as Heeresgruppe B Reserve. They were the only unit to be equipped with that weapon during the war.

Unfortunately I can't read the medical opinion on page 24.

Looks like he was trained on the big gun as well as the phone! Your skip has better stock than some dealers I can think of :smile:

(That made me laugh out loud! :thumbsup:)

A real result to find something like that which was literally thrown away with the rubbish.  Nice well filled in Wehrpass and Ausmusterungsschein.

Regards Richard.

Richard,

Sadly many Germans don't really value their own history.

I think the thing on page 24 means:

Art der Entlassung: du (a.v. Nachuntersuchung Mai 1942) Gem. Stellv. Gen. Kdo. XI AK Abt. IIbz (4901/41) Az. 12f. v. 6.6.41
Ärztliches Entlassungsurteil: Entlassungsfähig. Stationäre Behandlung noch erforderlich.

So it gives no real additional info, just what we expected. They checked him 6.6.1941 and again 5.1942 and he was not able to
be a soldier for whatever reason. He was however able to work. He could be released but stationary treatment was still necessary. So it seems to be a thing which took years.

I would too guess it might be a mental case.
