Great item Wim and well done on getting it. I saw it on the update but was obviously slower than you!
I have a larger version which can be seen here along with a translation kindly provided by Andreas.
Looking for LDO marked EK2s and items relating to U-406.....
I forgot we have a translation on our website ofcourse.
Below a “loose” translation of the back of the ID Card:
When is the Mothercross worn?
The Mothercross can be worn on all holidays. (e.g. 1St of Mai – Harvest Festival – The Fuhrer”s (Adolf Hitler) Birthday – Fallen commemoration day (like Easter) – Pentecost (White Sunday) – Christmas. It is also allowed to wear the Mothecross during Family events, Weddings, Funerals and so on.
How is the Mothercross worn?
The Mothercross can only be worn in combination with “formal wear” and can only be worn on it's original blue-white ribbon around the neck. It is not allowed to wear the Mothercross on any other necklace. (chain)
In which other way is the cross allowed to be worn?
For daily wearing of the cross it is allowed to wear a blue-white ribbon with a miniature Mothercross or just the blue-white ribbon. (these can be acquired in specific shops)
What is not allowed?
It is now allowed to wear the Mothercross on a chain or as brooch. Wearing the Mothercross in combination with day to day clothes (work outfit) is also not allowed.
She who wears the “normal size” Mothercross daily, should wear the Mothercross miniature instead. The miniature Mothercross on blue-white ribbon is for daily wear. (workdays)
Congratulations Wim on a very interesting document!

Thought shall be the harder , heart the keener,
Courage the greater as our strength faileth.
Here lies our leader ,in the dust of his greatness.
Who leaves him now , be damned forever.
We who are old now shall not leave this Battle,
But lie at his feet , in the dust with our leader
