    The guy was a Hunter. Far right is a hunting permit. All the items are Deutsche Jägerschaft.

    Cheers, Ade.

    The first document notifies the person as to the date and location for his hunting examination (26.4.41) while the second document is his actual certification on passing. The ID card, made out to another individual and not the person named in the other two documents, is a yearly hunting permit. As it is valid for the period 1.4.45 - 31.3.46, I doubt very much that he did much shooting (at least against non-human prey)!!!

    The Jahresjagdschein is a fine example of the yearly hunting permit.

    I agree the Jahresjagdschein is a very nice example. Shame you gave the pin away, it would've gone well with the permit. Can you post any better images of it please?

    body of first letter roughly:

    "I hereby advise you that the hunting examination for which you have signed up takes place on Saturday, April 24, 1941 on the hunting grounds of the German Hunting District of Ulm (at the Tuermle-Soeflinger train station). You will need to be at said place at the above time punctually.
    It is up to you whether to bring your own weapon; it is not required as weapons and ammunition will be at your disposal at the shooting range.

    (signed)"

    The second letter, as previously stated, gives notice that he passed and is qualified to have the license issued to him.
