Shrapnell damaged Soldbuch to Panzerschütze Franz Schefler


Unique shrapneldamaged soldbuch to Panzerschützen Franz Schefler, born 11 december 1926 and enlisted on 11 august 1944 at the age of 17. A typical 17 year old aryan boy with blond hair and blue eyes. He enlisted in 2. Kompanie Panzer Ersatz und Ausbildungs Abteilung 10, transferred to Panzer Ersatz und Ausbildungs Abteilung 4 and later to Grenadier Regiment 912. He was awarded the Verwundeten Abzeichen Im Schwarz on 7 november 1944 due to wounds noted as  Krankheit 31B which indicates 31b-Handgrenade, mortar, artillery (shrapnel). Grenadier Regiment 912 fought heavily in eastern Prussia or Ostpreussen and was destroyed first of april 1945 at Heiligenbeil which is currently known as Kaliningrad. This is for sure one of the most visual and poignant pieces of history I’ve had to offer.
