Wehrpass to Leutnant Hans Ferdinand Linsser
Wehrpass was issued on the 9th of August 1937 in Meiningen.
Linsser was born in December 1918, and was a law student. Interestingly, Linsser could speak English, French and Chinese, which for that time was very rare.
After serving in the RAD, Linsser was assigned to the Wehrmacht in October 1940 in Potsdam. Linsser was later assigned to various interesting listening posts/units such as the following:
Nachrichten Fernaufklärungs Kompanie 620
The main task of which was to listen to the enemy and gather intelligence. He would serve all over the Southern Sector of the Eastern Front, raising the ranks from a private to an Officer by December 1942.
Linsser was awarded the following medals:
War Merit Cross 2nd Class with Swords
Eastern Front Medal
Iron Cross Second Class
After the war Linsser went on to be a Legal professor and a famous German Diplomat, and his his own Wikipedia page dedicated to his service
Interestingly, Linsser was a personal friend of Ernst Junger, the WW1 Pour le Mérite winner.
A nice clean Wehrpass to a later famous German Diplomat. His Wartime unit and career was interesting insofar as intelligence gathering from enemy radio/communications. Not your everyday Wehrpass.
