Footnote:

Johann Kaspar Dohr was born on August 16, 1910 in Wadersloh (western Germany) and became a carpenter. He first joined the army on March 15, 1940, being deployed to the 2nd Riflemen Replacement Company of Infantry Replacement Battalion (mot.) 33 in Dessau. After his basic training completed, Dohr transferred to the 11th Company of Riflemen Regiment 33 in June, and in early January of 1941 he switched to the 3rd Company. During this time, from June 1940 to spring of 1941, Dohr took part in the campaign against France and stayed on as part of the occupational forces. He was promoted to Oberschütze (Senior Rifleman) on February 1, 1941, and to Gefreiter (Lance Corporal) on April 1. Starting in late April Dohr took part in the occupation of the “East” (Poland) for 2 months. With the attack on Russia in June of 1941 his unit advanced eastwards. Dohr fought in the double battle of Bialystok and Minsk. He was trained to use several different weapons, among them the Panzerbüchse (tank hunting rifle) 39. Dohr was wounded in the Battle of Smolensk in July of 1941 by a grenade splinter to the upper leg and received a Wound Badge in Black on July 25. Subsequently he spent about half a year with the Convalescent Company of Riflemen Replacement Battalion 12. The splinter was surgically removed and the wound healed well. However, at the same time Dohr had to be treated for a blood flow disorder in his hands and lower arms. In January of 1942 Dohr was redeployed to the 4th Company of Riflemen Replacement Battalion 12 in Schweinfurt, later renamed to Panzer Grenadier Replacement Battalion 12. A doctor’s report from early May 1942 states that he had been diagnosed with acrodermatitis chronica atrophicans, which is a degenerative skin condition of the extremities indicative of late stage lyme disease. From then on Dohr had frequent health check-ups. In February of 1943 his skin disease was still classified as grade B, meaning Dohr was still seen fit for service. However, at the same time he was diagnosed with heart disease grade L, which made him only conditionally fit for war. The doctor’s note states that he was seen as a burden to the troop and recommended redeployment to a garrison in the homeland. On March 1, 1943 Dohr was promoted to Obergefreiter (Corporal). Finally, in July of 1943 he was sent back to Germany to serve in the 2nd Company of Landesschützen Battalion 828. A few days later during his health check-up it was found that his skin disease had deteriorated and was classified as grade L. Dohr received his final promotion to Unteroffizier (NCO) on February 2, 1944. That same month his skin condition was classified as grade U, which made him fit only for work service in the army, but not service with a weapon. In late March of 1945 Dohr was redeployed to the 3rd Company of Landesschützen Battalion 847. No further information is available.
