Soldbuch of Obergefreiter Jakob Hahl, Werfer-Abteilung 11

This Soldbuch was carried through more than five years of war. The stitched repair to the binding is not unusual on examples like these that show a lot of wear and use.

The book has a couple of typed inserts. These are not dated and may have been added right at the end of the war. This one lists personal property items in Hahl's possession. In addition to typical items like a wallet for letters and a fountain pen, he had a pillow and slippers, as well as a set of eating utensils.

A handwritten insert page for soap issues.

Another handwritten insert, this one for immunizations.
