    Default Fallschirmjager's Soldbuch

    A new buy to display with my other FJ items. Jager Richard Schlucke 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 of the war and got no special FJ kit issued to him. Part of FJ Regt 63 who fought in the northern Germany around Stettin in 1945.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Nice find, good pics ;-)

    Very late war indeed!

    Makes you wonder back to what you were doing at 17...

    Nice late war soldbuch, congrats Ade.
    @ Larboard: At 17 it felt like I was at war. Not sure I would've handled the real thing though. Stewy

    A very nice Soldbuch Ade, I guess he was "pencilled in" by some deluded bureaucrat for his jump training, but as the Reich had bugger all planes left, except for the Squadron's in Hitler's mind (and probably parachutes) he missed out!
    A lovely example of late war history. Leon.

    Stewy, which war was that, what decade?

    At 18 I almost went and then decided not to go into the military, because I knew I really didn't have the discipline for it. I still regret it some, but I probably wouldn't have made it anyway. A dishonorable discharge isn't something you want to carry around with you for the rest of your life...

    I'm with you, i'm not a great lover of discipline. At 17 I was at war with near enough everyone. That's what I meant. Stewy

    I figured it was personal. Was it the Sex Pistols era?

    Yes, late 70's more early 80's. Stewy

    Good guess, I guess. We're about the same age.
