This superb Werpass belonged to SS Obersturmfuhrer Friedrich Witte and it is complete with its official photograph showing Witte wearing his Black SS officers tunic. The Wehrpass has many entry's and it is one of the nicest examples i have offered for sale for a very long time and being to a highly decorated SS officer makes it especially rare. SS Obersturmfuhrer Freidrich Witte was born on the 5.7.1913, he joined the SS on the 14.8.1934 serving with the SS Adolf Hitler Leibstandarte Regiment from 1934 until 1937 and received steady promotion in the NCO ranks. In 1937 he was commissioned as an SS officer and was then transfered to the SS Germania Regiment serving with this Regiment from 1937 until 1939, in 1939 he was transfered to the SS officer training school an Braunschweig obviously serving as an instructor, he was then transfered to the SS Totenkopf Regiment. In 1939 he was promoted to SS Oberstumfuhrer. His awards included the Iron cross 1st and 2nd class both for bravery in Russia. Freidrich Witt was killed in action in Russia on the 26.9.1941.There is also a very nice small phonograph of SS Obersturmfuhrer Witte in full SS uniform holding his young son. It is exceptionally rare to find an SS Werpass belonging to an SS officer with uniform photograph and who was highly decorated and served with some of the very best units of the Waffen SS, this book really has it all.
