A Second War Wehrpass to Paul Petschel - 54 pages, outer cover separated from contents, in generally fine condition; 1915 inspection form, also in fine condition. Paul Martin Petschel was born June 6th, 1893 in Oberneukirch, in the region of Dresden-Bautzen, Saxony. He was a married, protestant man who had previously worked as a carpenter, but at the time was working as a farmer. His father Ernst was also a farmer, and died in 1914, and his mother was Wilhelmina, nee Wobst. On March 23rd, he was conscripted for military service and brought in for inspection at the military district office in Bautzen. He was ruled unfit for service and placed with the second tier of the local militia. His second inspection came up on the 15th of November, 1943, at which time he was ruled fit for labour rather than military service. He also had inserted in his Wehrpass an official slip from the Imperial Army dated 1915 stating that he was unfit for service in the Army or Navy, for an unspecified reason.
