    I have a couple of these, bought out of Poland in the early 1990's. They are printed on a grey oilcloth material in order to be durable.

    Cheers, Ade.

    German driving licences, both military and civil, were divided into three classes.

    Klasse 1 = Motorcycle
    Klasse 2 = Trucks
    Klasse 3 = Cars

    As you can see here, the first licence issued to Karl Schertl is a Klasse 2, whereas the other issued to Johann Kiel is a Klasse 3.

    Even though I am not a big paperwork collector and my German is self taught, I do enjoy the research which can be done with paperwork.

    Kiel's Fuhrerschein has entries for his units Feldpost number. As I have a CD - ROM with all these listed, research is easy. His unit was:

    Feldpost number: 34409

    (Mobilmachung-1.1.1940) Batterie Bruno Gruppe Eberhardt leichte Artillerie-Abteilung 747,

    (2.1.1940-27.4.1940) gestrichen,

    (1.10.1940-27.2.1941) Generalkommando LVII. AK,

    (1.3.1942-7.9.1942) Generalkommando LVII. Panzer-Korps.

    Schertl's unit can be researched here via this link:

    Artillerie-Ersatz-Abteilungen - Lexikon der Wehrmacht

    One interesting thing is both men started off in the same unit. Look closely at the ID photographs. Both are early war and show them wearing the pre war pattern "Feldbluse" pattern pointed ended shoulder straps without waffenfarbe piping but with a red embroidered "54" for Artillery Regt 54. Here is this unit's history via this link:

    Appologies as this is a very old discussion, but i am going backwards to learn as much as possible about the TR documents and paperwork.
    Is it possible to purchase a copy of the fieldpost CD list to aid research?
    Or can you tell me where to obtain one?

    Hi Paul, the CD is no longer available. But the info is now online. Do a search and you should find it.

    Cheers, Ade.
