A WWII German Soldier’s Wartime Pocket Contents -A German Troop Transport Driver ‘s Life Unveiled


Have you ever wondered what the pocket contents of a WWII German soldier would look like?  In this case, I picked up a small grouping of photographs, documents and a dog tag from a WWII German soldier who survived WWII.  I can’t quite make out his name, but we do know that he was a vehicle operator, as evidenced by his green oil-cloth Kraftfahrzeugschein (vehicle registration) document.  All of the photographs and his dog tag point to the fact that Alfred was a driver of a modified troop transport vehicle during the last three years of the war.

Until I discover more about Alfred, I will leave the following material to you, the viewer to help decipher!
