    Nice booklet John! Its a DRA Leistungsbuch of Adolf Baumeister. Mister Baumeister was member of Turn und Sportverein "Jahn" in München. It says that mister Baumeister succeeded in reaching the sportive conditions for group 1 by swimming 300 meters in 7 minutes and 5 seconds, group 2 by far jumping a distance of 4 meters and 96 centimeters, group 3 by sprinting 100 meters in 13 seconds, group 4 by shot-putting a ball (with the stated specifications, not sure if its size or weight) for 8 meters and 74 centimeters and group 5 by running 10 kilometres in 46 minutes and 32 seconds. By doing all that, he received the bronze Leistungsabzeichen on November 24, 1925. Do you also have the award with it?

    Hi John,

    this is an early and very well preserved document about the award of the "Deutsches Turn- und Sportabzeichen" in Bronze in 1920. The booklets from this time in my collection are in a considerably worse state.

    Group 4 is shot put (Kugelstoßen), weight of the shot is 14 1/2 Pfund = 7,25kg.

    The original signatures are from Paul Förster and Georg Hax.

    The document in the other thread is the cover letter for this booklet.
