WW-2 Generalmajor Wehrpass with lots of Imperial entries. WW-1 Hauptmann


Recommended Posts

I have recently acquired a Wehrpass to Fritz Heidrich who reached the rank of Generalmajor in 1943 before retiring in October of that year (and going missing in 1945 - believed to have died in Dresden Prison in 1945).

The Wehrpass has a lot of entries and so I thought that I would share the entries that relate to the Imperial era as Heidrich served in the German Army from 1901 to 1943, reaching the rank of Hauptmann in WW-1 and serving as a Batterie-Führer in 1915 and an Artillerie-Gruppenführer in 6 Kav.Division in 1916.

EK2, EK1, Hamburg Hanseatic Cross, and then the rest of it gets pretty blurry, but likely the HK and maybe the Flower medals?
