A well put together Award and Document Grouping to Gefreiter Klaas D. Huismann! This grouping includes Huismann’s; Wehrpass, Arbeitsbuch, Iron Cross 2nd Class with award document, Krim Shield with award document, Infantry Assault Badge with award document and his Russian Front Medal with TWO award documents. Not sure why his Russian Front Medal is not listed in his Wehrpass. Perhaps it was awarded posthumously after his Wehrpass had been closed. Huismann was an infantry soldier and killed in Russia. To the best of my knowledge these awards are his. Also included are two period photographs and two post war photographs. A plaque has been made for display purposes. I believe the breast eagle had been added to the grouping. Though that’s how I got it so it will stay with the grouping. The Silver IAB award document is ripped on the bottom and put together with period stamps on the back.
The display case is not included.
