Hi gents,

i have this Kriegschronik of a Reserve Lieutenant of the Inf.Reg.190, which is unfortunately stained with coffee, like it seems. Luckily only two of the stains expand into the actual picture. I thought about cleaning it, but i have been told to better leave it alone and thats probably the best advice. It´s still nice though. Take a look:

I really like the artwork on this piece. Were these made personally for every soldier or was there a "blueprint" of these Chronicles?

Interesting journey through the army.....from the infantry, to the Feldluftschiffertruppen, to the infantry again, to pilot training in the Fliegertruppen and then as an technical advisor for a flight school.

Really interesting. It seems he never finished the pilot training because of his crash. The injuries must have been severe.

He had the leave on the groud for the rest of the war. Not a satisfied situation.

Kind regards
