Boy Scout-kriegsmarine-- Dresden Bombing (1944-45) Superb Grouping For Sale

Boy Scout-kriegsmarine-- Dresden Bombing (1944-45) Superb Grouping

Very scarce and wonderful Kriegmarine Boy Scout grouping for a sixteen year-old boy from Weissenfelds in Saxony (about twenty miles south of Leipzig, near the Austrian border) named Heinz Jähnert of the Bann 3/108 (formally the 108/y) in Weissenfelds. Grouping includes his Dienstkarte (Service Card ID), Leistungbuch (Achievement Book), Kriegsfreiwiiligen ID Card and two documents (Teilnehmerbescheinung and Bescheinungung-- Participation and Official Certifications).

His 8-page Service ID Card was issued in April of 1944 and is printed on green card stock. Its last entry is April 3, 1945-- just one week before Germany surrendered and the war ended-!! There is much documentation with regards to his work at a warehouse facility in and around both Weissenfelds and Brittenbach. The photo of him in this card was taken when he was around 12-13 years old (and probably came from an earlier id card or simply a left over photo from his parents, as getting new photos towards the end of the war became increasingly difficult).

His Achievement Book is 32-pages and was issued in 1944 as well. The photograph in this booklet shows him as a 14-15 year-old boy and dressed in his Kriegsmarine-Boy Scout uniform. The book has no real entries at this late date of the war and this is primarily due to his vast volunteering activities which are documented in his Kriegsfreiwilligen Ausweis(Volunteer ID Card), issued in July of 1944. In addition to his local Luftschutz and Social Welfare Department activities, he was kept quite busy at various warehouse facilities between Weissenfelds, Brittenbach, Leipzig and Dresden, and was even driving the trucks when needed (at age fifteen) towards the end of the war. After the Dresden Bombing of Feb 1945, he worked almost exclusively at emergency supply warehouses around the Saxony area (around Dresden, but particularly Leipzig). He lost two aunts in the Dresden bombings. His documents pertain to certifications prior to the Dresden bombing.

Jähnert survived the war and lived under the Russian Zone of Germany for many decades, working in a factory. After the fall of Eastern Germany, he re-located to the western side of Germany, outside Frankfurt, where he was re-united with his brother Hermann.

A great grouping with lots of history which came out of Germany last year. VF or better.
