This is a 9 x 12-½ inch, 26 page Nazi photo album containing 74 photos of a cocky, proud and good looking unnamed young Unteroffizier or NCO from Bautzen taken between 1940 and 1944. Photos dated 1940 show the NCO wearing an Iron Cross and a 1943 photo shows him wearing a second style marksmanship lanyard, while others show him wearing a Sports Badge, Wound Badge and ribbons on his uniform tunic.
The album includes an intriguing and historic undated photo of soldiers marching on a snow covered street with trumpets in foreground (see top of web page and close-up below). The marching soldiers are wearing typical German helmets that have an odd shield decal on the side (regular German soldiers did not have this) and there is a national shield on the arm of their uniforms (regular German Wehrmacht soldier uniforms did not have this either). The flag appears to be French, possibly of the LVF, French volunteers in the Waffen-SS or German Army (French Volunteer Legion in the Wehrmacht).
Photos show soldiers in training in snow with a mortar, field gun and rifles. There are several photos taken in 1941 at the König-Albert-Kaserne on Löbauer Strasse in Bautzen, including a review with high-ranking officers.
The unnamed Unteroffizier was wounded and several photos of him during his recuperation time at the German seaside resort Lubmin (just west of Peenemünde on the Baltic) and nearby Greifswald.
Some photos show him on crutches, some with fellow soldiers wearing sunglasses and some with his wife who apparently came to visit.
There are photos dating back to 1943 in Leipzig of soldiers and women, Wehrmacht training exercises in the snow, and snapshots of an outing to the 18th century palace at Moritzburg (just north of Dresden), and a nearby deer park.
The album also contains family and wedding photos. One wedding photo with small children and snow in background has the name of a company in Merseburg (just west of Leipzig) on the back. Two small boys appear is several of the family photos.
The NCO was also photographed in a white dress uniform at Pfingsten (Whitsun) in 1944 at Dresden.
The black photo album was purchased from a shop called Kurt Martin Richter in the city of Bautzen. It was put together by a person that was not very detail-oriented or careful. The photos are not in order and not very well marked. Nobody is identified. However, it is an honest, original Third Reich photo album containing many excellent and unique pictures that nobody ever messed with or embellished.
