Soldbuch (Zweitschrift) to Gefreiter Walter Seuche, member of the Grenadier Regiment 1147, as part of the 563. Grenadier-Division. This Division (later Volkgrenadier Division) was formed in the training facility of Doeberitz and was almost immediately sent to join Army Group North. The Regiment fought heavily in Dorpat (tartu) in Estonia and this is where Seuche was injured by an air attack (soldbuch code 31d) and awarded the wound badge in black. The survivors of the battle were reformed to a Fusilier unit, in this case "Grossdeutschland". The complete unit was splintered into smaller kampfgruppen in 1945 and most were captured or killed by the Red Army. On 25.3.45 Seuche was heavily injured again by a combination of a shrapnel and a bullet shot wound in the upper leg. From this day on he remained in the hospital of Arnstadt until a month after the war ended. Seuche was one of the very lucky survivors. 

The Soldbuch remains in good and complete condition with uniform picture of Seuche. Award document for the wound badge in black and medical inspection document for his second wound are also included in this small lot.
