    Hi Franz, you are reading it incorrectly. Look at the word again. You will see the letter "g" in the gewehr element of the word. The letter at the start of the word is different and is actually an "s". So it reads "Bayonet" in German. The same box is also used to record if a sword was issued.

    Many Anglo/Americans get confused with German script letter "s". They can appear to look like either a g or an f.

    Cheers, Ade.

    The soldbuch was issued in 1940 and he was assigned to construction battalions. None of the photos show any award entries but judging by the picture on the inside front cover he is wearing a WW1 Wound Badge In Black on his pocket and his ribbon bar looks to consist of a WW1 Iron Cross 2nd Class, Honour Cross For Frontline 'Fighters' (a 1934 issued medal to honour WW1 soldiers), Sudetenland Medal and an unknown one.

    The main construction battalion he was assigned to was Bau-Batallion 125 and here is some information on it...
