A Wehrpaß to Battle of Britain Luftwaffe Pilot/Radio Operator & Gold Squadron Clasp Recipient

Measuring 106x148mm, in the original cover, measuring 113x152mm, extremely fine condition with some outside scuffing and signs of aging. It is dated to Lüneburg, northern Germany, on June 10, 1939, and signed in blue ink by a Lieutenant Colonel and Commander of the Army District Command Lüneburg. The name could be Otto-Georg von der Recke (1885–1942). Three signatures in blue crayon are made by Squadron Captain Heinz Fontana, who received the Honour Goblet of the Luftwaffe on June 5th, 1943. The Wehrpaß comes with two ribbons, one for the Iron Cross 2nd Class, one for the War Merit Cross 2nd Class. However, there is no mention of Dransfeld being awarded a War Merit Cross. Footnote: Wilhelm Georg Werner Dransfeld was born on July 18, 1920 in Cordingen (today a part of Bomlitz as Borg/Cordingen), district of Fallingbostel/Lüneburg. He was a bank clerk and unmarried. Dransfeld received training to become an onboard radio operator and completed a blind flying seminar. After passing both, he was awarded the Bordfunkerabzeichen (Radio Operator Badge) and the Flugzeugführerabzeichen (Pilot Badge). Dransfeld was drafted on November 17, 1939, and joined the 16./Luftnachrichten-Ersatz-Kompanie (mot.) 11 (16th unit of the Aerial Signal Reserve Company (motorised) 11). As of December 1939, Dransfeld served with the 8. (Luftnachrichten-Ersatz-)Kompanie Luftnachrichten-Regiment des Oberbefehlshabers der Luftwaffe (8th Reserve Company Aerial Signal Regiment of the Commander-in-Chief of the Luftwaffe). In June 1940, he was redeployed to the 13. Luftnachrichten Bataillon Oberbefehlshaber der Luftwaffe (13th Aerial Signal Battalion Commander-in-Chief of the Luftwaffe). Starting in August 1941, he served with the 1. (Flugf.) (Fluz)/Luftnachrichten Flugf. Rgt. z. B. V. (mot) 1 (1st Pilot Company of the Aerial Signal Pilot Regiment for special use 1). In April 1942, Dransfeld joined the 11. (Flugf.)/Luftnachrichten Regiment 1 (11th Pilot Company of the Aerial Signal Regiment 1). In August 1942, he was redeployed to the 1. Schüler-Kompanie (Bofu.-Anw.) der Luftflotten Nachrichtenschule Nordhausen (1st Student Company (Radio Operator Candidate) of the Aerial Fleet Signal School Nordhausen). On December 1, 1942, he was promoted to Unteroffizier (NCO). Earlier that year, he had received the Iron Cross 2nd Class on October 1, 1942, and 1st Class on November 11, 1942. Until early 1942, he served in the homeland war zone as support of the Luftwaffe. In April 1942, he participated in the Battle of Britain. Between April and August 1942, he served on the Eastern Front. On March 11, 1943, he received the Front Flying Clasp of the Luftwaffe in Gold. This was awarded for having flown at least 110 missions. In September 1943, he joined the Flugzeugführerschule B 33 Nachrichtenkompanie Prag (Pilot School B 33 Signal Company Prague). In March 1943, he served in the I./ T.(ransport) G.(eschwader) 1, 3. Staffel (1st Battalion of the Transport Wing 1, 3rd Squadron).
