By the simple expedient of having them all demobbed, the Allies removed any legal protection these soldiers would have had as PoWs. They were now "displaced enemy persons".

Schmidt was interned at Neuengamme. Interesting, as this former Concentration Camp was initially used to hold ex-SS men and others held for "security" reasons.

This sheets is his acknowledgement of having had his valuables returned to him ( including this Soldbuch) on his release in 1946.

Very nice addition to the WP/SB collection Gordon. He does seem to have a very stern look to him in the soldbuch - I can picture him with that expression peering out from under a cap visor!
