Fahrtbefehl - Generalpostkomissar Ostland
Hi folks, This is an interesting document I picked up a few years ago in trade. I assume by the quality of the paper that this is an original item. Since it originates with a postal authority and uses the term "Befehl" I assume it is a travel order either for postal business or mail delivery. Also, the term Kommissar is interesting. I wonder if this was a commonly used term in German. The Ostland reference indicates it is TR era. Feedback welcome. NH
