1916 Postcard showing a Group of Medics A postcard with writing on back but never posted. Dated 24 March 1916 showing four medical soldiers from a Saxon Regiment wearing m1910 tunics. Interesting headgear as one wears the pork pie cap whilst the others have the 1908 pattern cap for medics with a peak and chinstrap. As per 1915 regs the middle soldier has a cloth masking band round his cap.
1917 Einheitsfeldmutze Other Ranks Cap Really nice condition example of the 1917 pattern field cap for other ranks. It has the Prussian cockade and national cockade metal version on the front rather than the standard sow on button style. The cap is stamped inside for issue to JR11. Further stamps indicate it was given to the 3rd battalion of the Infantry Regt and a soldier in company 9 was the owner. This appears to have survived so well because the other crossed out markings show it had been in storage for a theatre costumes department..

Army Personnel Medical Records Book First book is the health records for a member of II Bttl IR 601. It dates from June 1941 till April 1942 but offers little info other than his height, weight etc. The second book for Obergefreiter martin of Gren. Res. Btl. 208 is more informative and includes a report in the back from the senior medical staff of the Regiment diagnosing him with Typhus fever (Fleckfieber) on 16.3.43. Here his records end and the final page at the back of the book, which has perforated slip and is entitled "discharged from active service", has been removed. So we have to draw our own conclusions as to his fate.
