Wehrpass to Feldw. Andreas Normann, member of the Infanterie Regiment 484 as part of the 254. Infanterie-Division. Normann went into active service on 27.8.1939 protecting the western borders in the Eifel area. On the first day of the Blitzkrieg, Normann fouht hi sway through Holland, Belgium and France. He was promoted to the rank of Gefreiter and returned to Germany for further training. A few months later his unit was one of the first to be sent out again to the Eastern Front. Promoted to the rank of Obergefreiter Normann went through East Germany towards a different war. The unit saw action in the Baltic States to Leninggrad and Wolchow. It was in this timeframe Normann proved himself as a true combat leader. In just a few weeks Normall was awarded with BOTH grades of the iron cross, the infatry assault badge and the wound badge in black for a flesh wound in Estland. He was shot again in the same hand a few months later in Russia. Normann was also promoted in the field to the rank of NCO (Unteroffizier) but discharged a bit later from the army after medical tests.

He remained inactive untill 30.11.1943 when he entered the army again. Normann was send to Holland for training  and now joined the Jäger Regiment 31. He was trained with the 8.8 cm Raketenwerfer 43 "Panzerbüchse 43" and had a specialised tank destruction course "Panzer Nahbekämpfungsabzeichen". Normann could now move to the 14. Kompanie of the Panzer Jägers and was send to the Normandy front in France to counter the allied invasion on 16.6.1944 (Caen area). on 8.7.1944 there was an other unit switch to the 14 Kompanie of the Grenadier Regiment 125 (21. Panzer Division). It was here were Normann's training paid off. Between 9.7.1944 and 29.10.1944 he was able to destroy an enemy allied panzer single handed. For this action he was awarded with the tank destruction badge (promoted to Feldwebel) and later both bronze and silver grade of the close combat clasp. 

The WP is complete with photo of Normann and comes with an extra "Truppenausweiss" from 1938. 

One of the best combat Wehrpasses I have had. With the silver close combat clasp, EK1 and tank destruction badge on the sleeve Normann probabaly got captured during the final months of 1944.
