Default DDR Wehrdienstausweis Group

Hi Folks: I recently attended a Dresden flea market and I picked up some interesting DDR items since I served in Germany from 1974-90 and I was in VII Corps when the wall came down. I couldn't pass up this group consisting of this soldier's ausweis, dogtag, clothing issue, soldier's booklet (AK, compass use, etc.), travel forms, etc...

This is a very nice small flea market find grouping you have added to your collection. Thanks for taking the time to post this identity booklet and papers.

Nice find.



It has always intrigued me how something this personal to a person and their military career, ends up at a flea market.



I have several of these, and I'm not sure how I feel about having them. Seems a little personal. I guess if they maybe belonged to someone of prominence, I'd feel differently about them.

I agree with you....I was also surprised to find this entire career soldier's info just laying there on the table....cost me two (2) Euros. I was amazed at the amount of info...from one soldier...and he entered the military the same year I entered 1972
