Came across this one while clearing my folders. Perhaps will be of use to somebody...

Shows process of evacuation of wounded and sick from front line to the rear.
No source and no date...

Interesting stuff, hucks216.
I haven't seen too many Wehrpasses with glued printed entries.

SS-Lazarett Prag

Post by GregSingh » 24 Aug 2016 00:14

Here is a receipt for 428 bottles of Mosel Riesling wine sent by Ministeramt Prag to SS-Lazerett Prag for sick and wounded due to Julfest celebrations (also known as Christmas).

As there were around 1400 patients at that time in the hospital, that would be 0.3 bottles per patient. Two glasses...or perhaps more as some heavily wounded wouldn't drink, considering these were all for patients, not for hospital staff..
BTW there were around 250 staff.

Here is a set of paperwork that shows the medical world in the form of paperwork as it related to an injured soldier:

Upon enlistment the soldier had a Gesundheitsbuch issued at the recruitment depot as well as undergoing a chest examination (although this one was a later one). In this case the soldier's chest & heart were reported as being OK.

Continuation of entries in the G-Buch:

The soldier in question went to serve in an Infantry unit and on the 21st November 1941 he was wounded on the Russian Front for which he was awarded the Wound Badge in Black seven days later while at the Kriegslazarett:

Shown here is the Lazarett pages from his Soldbuch and it shows his path through the system. Injured on the 21st November we saw from the Wound Badge citation that he was in the Lazarett system by the 28th. However it took the Kriegslazarett a few more days to sort out the admin side and have inputted his entry to the Kriegslazarett as 1st December 1941. He was discharged from Kriegslazarett 3./561 on the 5th December 1941 and was transferred west by a Lazarettzug and by 16th December 1941 he had arrived at Reserve-Lazarett III Frankfurt-am-Main. They have also entered brief details of his injury which was shrapnel damage to his jawbone and the injury was severe enough that he remained in Res-Laz Frankfurt-am-Main until July 1942.
