Soldbuch, EK2 Award Document and Infnatry Assault Badge Award Document to Kurt BLAUL who served in Inf Rgt 196 of the 68 Infantry Division.  All awards entered into Soldbuch including the Ostmedaille.  What I really like is the document issued in 1944 which has a soldier holding a Panzerfaust - uncommon!  And first time I have seen this document. It is a thank you to soldiers from commander of a Heeresgruppe for his service on the East German border.
