Not something I actively seek out to collect so the ones I have tend to come with other items, i.e. Soldbuch etc, but the Führerschein & Fahrlehrerschein can be a very underestimated item for collectors. Whether they are from hard to find units, contain great photos or signatures of future Generals or winners of high end awards there are plenty of reasons why they can be great additions to a papewrwork collection. So if you have one please feel free to add it to this thread.

Here are two for a long serving member of Pz.Rgt 35 (1938-44). The Führerschein is a Zweitschrift issue and was issued by II/Pz.Rgt 35 and contains the signature of Wilhelm Hochbaum who won the DKiG in 1942. The Fahrlehrerschein was issued by Pz.Abt.Abw 9 in which the soldier served from 1936-38. The photo comes from his Wehrpass..

Here is another example to a founding soldier of IR GD in 1939 and was issued while he served in IR 57 in 1937-38. It contains the signature of Werner Sanne who won the Knights Cross & DKiG, went on to command 100 Lei.Infanterie-Division at Stalingrad, was captured there and died in Russian captivity in 1952.

Interesting, that the unit is given as: Feldpost-Nr. 33876 "Abteilung Oberleutnant Foedisch" (in France) and stamped Heeres Kraftfahrbezirk XXXIII Dienststelle Feldpost Nr. 21088, also no rank is given.

And here is a 1938 dated Führerschein issued to a future soldier in 1.(Wach)/Führer-Begleit-Btl and an eventual officer in Pz.Gren.Div GD. The uniform photo comes from his Soldbuch and there is also a post-war photo.

Two Führerschein to the same person - one being a civilian version issued in 1935 and the second being a military version issued in 1941 by IR 12. Signature on rear of the military version is that of Oberst Hugo Ribstein who went on to command 81 ID.

A 1934 issued Führerschein to a member of the Polizei and who would go on to become a Luftwaffe Glider Pilot before being killed in an air crash during the build up to the raid on Tito's HQ in 1944.

I'm not entirely sure but I think Gleisketten Kraftfahrzeug II is for a Halftrack.

Gleisketten Kraftfahrzeug I - ??? (Kettenkrad type maybe?)

Gleisketten Kraftfahrzeug III - ???

    • Sounds great other than the Orange & Mango squash only because I prefer cran-pomegranate juice.
    • "(...) disgusting herbal concoction (...)" I took note of this description, to enrich my otherwise limited, English "Wortschatz"...
    • At work the standard indian tea such as PG tips is referred to as chimp tea. This goes back to the days when we had a Spanish girl working for us whose command of the English language was extremely limited. One lunch she said she was going to the shop could she get anything. I asked if she could get a pack of tea bags. She returned with some disgusting herbal concoction. I tried to explain what was required but without success. I then remembered PG tips had a picture of a chimpanzee on the packe
    • When I read Lapsang Souchong i decided to post something about these Tea . Many years ago I dont  know about Lapsang until I read James Michener book Centennial and the description of the savour of the Lapasang as a mix of tar and salt & smoked made me proof . It was exact ! and i liked it since then .
    • I have been known to drink Lapsang Souchong and Tea, Earl Grey, Hot... both "without pollutants". I normally have one mug of coffee in the morning, then spend the rest of the day drinking Orange & Mango squash (by the pint). Then evening comes and it's a pint, followed by red wine with dinner and sometimes a drop of Laphroaig afterwards.
