Nice item! Does it end in 1944? Did Ernst survive the bombings and the occupation, I wonder?
"Much that once was, is lost. For none now live who remember it."
Thanks for the comments, I wonder also about what happenend to ol' ernst, usually if they survived something like this would have been denazified, the last entry is 5-19-44 he was 57 years old then, maybe he went into the volkssturm or died in a bombing raid. either way I shall keep his memory preserved, all my items I treat with great respect no matter what country or person it belonged too.
