Interesting, at such a late time in the war the Wehrpaß should not have been sent to family as he had to be missing 2 years before classed as killed.
Seeing as they got news he was in British PoW captivity this was duly entered. This entry was made by his home Wehrmeldeamt in Minden. So that would indicate it had been sent at least to his home reporting office. Unfortunately the entry is not dated.
The FP Nr. correcsponds with his unit:
49235 - Stab I u. 1.-4. Kompanie Fallschirmjäger-Regiment 9.
C denoting 2 Kompanie.
