The dual language Czech / German print is down to the fact that he is a Sudeten German from Tetschen in the North of Czechoslovakia. You can see where the printed location Tetschen has been scored out and his then current posting at Bodenbach written in.

His Polizei Dienstpass entry for the dates on the Ausweis confirm his serving with the Kriminal Polizei.

The set keeps on getting better. It would appear that the only main pieces of paperwork you don't have (considering his personnel file was destroyed at Stettin) are the actual award citations, which he probably wouldn't of had on him when captured.

Nice to see the full documents Gordon and what a bonus his Ausweis turned up a well!!! What will turn up next week I wonder!?!?!?

Here's a scan of what we thought was Lösel's signature to a former member of Schutzmannschafts Bataillon 63 who later served for 3 weeks with SS Feld.Kp. 17.....there are some similarities in the signature but not sure now!?!?!

Hi Ian,

I still think the signature in your book is the same guy. He probably wouldn't have used his full name Oskar Lösel when signing stuff like that, so just Lösel or O Lösel seems reasonable and the way the "L" is written is pretty similar with the loops etc.

Apart from that, Lösel commanded the Feldgend Komp from the time GvB was created until the end of the war, and on the date quoted in that entry, he was an Obersturmführer, (only being promoted Hauptstürmführer in the last days of the war).

So, with a signature block of Obersturmführer and Kompanie-Führer in SS-Fg Komp 17, and with similarities to the signature in his own Soldbuch, I'd be comforatble that Lösel is the only person it can be.

Interestingly, the subscription stamps for 1933 show him as on Military Service (presumably with the Czech army).

The book contains subscription stamps up to 1938. Of course after the Germans took control, this organisation, like its German counterpart, would have been prohibited.

Very nice again Gordon and great the original seller is keeping you informed when new items crop up.....when will you stop, when he offers you his uniform ;)

To your post #32 A travel pass issued to Lösel, authorising him to travel on public transport when out of uniform. Issued by the Kommando der Schutzpolizei in 1942.

If would appear to be signed by the Kdr.d.Schupo. Obstlt.d.Schupo Wolff. According to the list of Polizeipräsidium...unfortunately no idea of his forename!

The greeting.

Interesting again that he is referred to in this card as Hauptmann der Schutzpolizei, the Police rank he continued to use even in his Waffen-SS Soldbuch even though he also held the rank of SS-Hauptsturmführer. His Zugführer however uses the abbreviation for the rank of Untersturmführer though he has omitted the "SS" prefix
