"Spießbuch" 8 Komp. Infanterie regiment 16
"Spießbuch" of the 8 Kompanie of Infanterie regiment 16. The book is in good condition and was reenforced with the tape on the back. It's held in a specially made leather protection case.
Very rare and original book that always remained with the "mother of the company": "Der Spieß". It contained all the names of soldiers with the addresses, the KIA's, the MIA's and in this case also the awards in red pencil. This book is often seen on period photos and was held between the buttons of the uniform.
Exceptional piece, very hard to find.
