very interesting. Looks to be the method to record the points and actions to apply for the badge.

On a scale of 1-10 with 10 being the rarest... I would say this is waaaaaay up there.

I dont collect WW2 anymore, but this is a fantastic piece.

I'd agree, it seems to be a book for recording points leading to the award of the badge. Interesting that the front cover shows the book is specific to this Regiment. In other words the name of the unit is not just stamped onto a "generic" book which could be used by any unit.

So, it is possible that this unit decided to have such books printed and issued to individual soldiers and other units just kept central records for eveytone. This would explain why it could be so rare and no one has seen one before.

You would expect similar books for Heer and Kriegsmarine Flak units and they would be more common.

Very rare piece. Congratulations Jan Arne !

As Paul noted it would be nice,if possible, to see the other pages in the book.

Personally I never seen one of these to any Flak units and would be curios if others have seen examples of these or have any in there collections.

I have the EXACT one to the same unit but it is blank. No clue if it is good.

Thanks for additional scans. Certainly an interesting book and hopefully someone else will be able to show additional items which are filled in/complete.

Appears as though these were perhaps unoffically instituted by specific units.

Regards
