Fallschirmjager's Soldbuch

Article about: A new buy to display with my other FJ items. He was a Paratrooper in name only if nothing else. He was a very late war conscript aged 17. He did no jump training obviously at this late stage

    Thanks for the comments as ever.

    I have no idea if he survived the war?

    Cheers, Ade.

    That's a nice find. Only one Schluecke on the Volksbund site and he was killed in 1917.

    My wife is German and I have her dad's Soldbuch, he was conscripted about the same time and had just turned 17. His one is in quite good condition, he needed it for his war pension and problems he had with his wounds. As this FJ Soldbuch is also in fairly good condition, I wonder if Richard used it for the same postwar reasons?

    Thanks Tony. It might be, who knows?

    As an aside, did your Father in Law remove any swastikas from the buch, as I know many Veterans did.

    Cheers, Ade.

    No Ade, the only swastikas in it are stamps and they're all there. In fact everything including his ID tag, hospital release certificate (May 46) and wound badge certificate (swastika removed from the issue stamp as the war was over) is there however, he removed his photo from the inside cover at some stage.
