106. WAFFEN-SS MEDAL,
SOLDBUCH & Document Grouping - SS-LEIBSTANDARTE
Amazing grouping to Rudolf HILDEBRANDT. Everything directly from his sister. Comes with his original issue SS Soldbuch with SUPER uniform photo of him wearing LAH shoulder boards. He was born in 1927 so he was 17 years old at the time the Soldbuch was issued! He served in 7./ SS Panzer Grenadier Regiment. Soldbuch has a great unit LSSAH stamp. He was hospitalized in Jan. !945 for shrapnel wounds and (likely )frostbite. He was hospitalized again in April 1945 in Bad Tolz due to an accident. There are also POW camp entries showing him in Rgt 17 "Brasack" (SS General Kurt Brasack). Award entries include EK2 awarded April 7 1945, "Pz Sturmabzeichen" - probably incorrectly entered & should be Inf Sturmabzeichen - obviously it would be PanzerKAMPFabzeichen otherwise. This is also the medal that comes from the family, and his NAHKAMPFSPANGE in Bromze. The last two both awarded on April 5, 1945. All three awards have the appropriate LSSAH unit stamp. Also comes with his RAD Entlassungsschein, original military discharge document issued by US forces, 1952 Personalausweis, rare 1947 issue JUGEND-AMNESTIE document, hospital document related to his accident, and three nice late war photos - two in SS uniform. ORIGINAL medals include - Black Wound Badge, Iron Cross Second Class (maker marked on ring), Infantry Assault Badge in Bronze (maker marked FLL), beautiful CLOSE COMBAT CLASP in Bronze (maker marked Peekhaus), Ostmedaille, RAD cap Badge and one coin. I spoke personally with the man's widow. He is still alive but, sadly, suffering from severe dementia in a nursing home.
