    I'm 16, started about a year ago collecting soviet uniforms.
    Soviet bloc items are mostly my focus now, with a few various pieces I got at decent prices along the way.

    Cool re: Are there any teenage collectors on war relics forum ? If so what do you collect ?

    Sorry for the below pictures, they are out of order. It is supposed to go: cover, inside page, soldbuchs translation, awards page, units, death, extras

    The folders that you guys asked about are for the soldbuchs.

    I have one folder for each soldbuch. Inside the folder there is a section for the translation of the soldbuch. In that section, I went through each page and translated it, added information about the page, and pictures. Next, section about the awards the man received. And last, a section for the units he served with. In one soldbuch there is a section dedicated to his death along with pictures of his grave.

    And yes, I typed everything you see below.

    Here is an example of my favorite soldbuch/folder below.

    Thanks for the interest,
    Swayne

    I gathered the information about the units using Lexikon der Wehrmacht

    I also have had help from the forum members at wehrmacht awards forum.

    I have learned about what the entries in soldbuchs mean, as well as abbreviations, so that I can understand what is being represented.

    As for the awards, I find the requirements for the awards using wehrmacht awards.

    Thanks for the interest, BTW, I have 6 more soldbuchs/binder like this one.

    Sounds like some cool collections out there.

    I can't wait to see the pictures of your soldbuchs Franz.

    What type of soldbuchs are they? Do they have any wound entries or awards? I'm curious to see what you have.

    Thanks,
