    Default Feuerwehr armband and associated documents... with a difference!!

    I picked up these few items this week, perhaps not what you were expecting. The armband is only the 2nd or 3rd I have ever seen. I have one other in my collection but its much more worn than this one. Undoubtedely the men were issued with more than one during the Occupation and this one never saw the light of day from then till now. the associated documents are also quite hard to find and I am really pleased to have them for my collection. Where you see 2 items on the page, the top one is a scanned copy so the original does not have to be removed if someone wants to see whats on the other side. The Feldkommandantur 515 curfew pass is actually signed by Baron Max Von Aufsess who Kommandant of the Island for a time.
    So do not give up hope such little gems do appear every now and again, we all hopefully get a turn in finding something for our collections.
    All the best,
    from Jersey.

    I thought I was going mad when I saw FIRE BRIGADE in English, and Ade didn't bat an eyelid at it. Your Location suddenly cleared it up I really like stuff from the islands, something about it being in English too really brings it home, like that famous picture of a bobby holding the staff car door open for an officer.
