Hello Mike.

The first log book shown is for the flight training period ( the different phases of training). The second one shows transfer flights of ME 109 in France , as detailed in the following picture ( departure St.Omer and arriving Caen). A total of Kilometers flown is certified by an officer on staff with the log book apparently closed out as evidenced by the lines drawn.

His Red Cross I.D. card in which he is now described as "Hilfsarzt' or assistant medical officer and a June 1944 handwritten change in rank as "Fahnenjunker Unteroffizier" or officer candidate for war service in the medical service.

His pilot license follows. It seems that he switched career from pilot to medical officer . Medical officers to be were granted extensive leaves to attend medical schools with intermittent breaks for practical service as medical corps members.

Thanks for showing this,

Bernhard H. Holst

Does his pilots license show any entries that indicate what front line unit he flew with? Is that Jagdgeschwader 3 that I can see on the image of the inside page of the Flugbuch?

Here are the written pages of his Pilots License.....
