Small grouping to Flieger Horst Meiner. Luftwaffe soldbuch to airgunner Meiner nicely filled out with studion portrait photo. Awarded with airgunner badge and glider pilot proficiency badge. Trained as airgunner in Junkers Ju 88 airplane and then afterwards moved to smaller anti aircraft ground unit. Lei Flak Abt 989, 887 and very intersting "Lei. Flak Abt 1003" (Flak Regiment 255) as Eisenbahn Transport unit (Flak unit train protection). This last unit was mainly active in both Luftgau VII (Ober und – Niederbayern; Oberpfalz; parts of Schwaben) and XVII („Ostmark“  Protektorat Böhmen und Mähren) and was formed earlier in Maria-ter-Heide, Belgium as a V1 launching unit (pre entrance of Meiner). Meiner was taken prisoner and stayed in American POW camp in Bellaria, Italy. 

The soldbuch comes with a very nice airgunner pass "Bordwartschein" shwoing that Meiner was trained for the Ju 88 airplane. Meiner probably did not see a lot of action in the air but was soon placed at a special ground flak unit. Also both Meiner's glider pilot passes are included: NSFK Gleitflieger B and Segelflieger Abzeichen "U". 

Very interesting and nice grouping!
