Purchase of Russian revolver (Wagner)

[Anton Wagner]: I believe it was in August 1942, I purchased a Russian revolver from an unknown guard. I bought it for personal protection, or rather as a collector [of such items]. While I was on the Eastern Front, I carried it in a body belt and was happy about the acquisition. I learned from the seller of this weapon that it was plunder.


Note: Date is estimate.
