Army Personnel Medical Records Book First book is the health records for a member of II Bttl IR 601. It dates from June 1941 till April 1942 but offers little info other than his height, weight etc. The second book for Obergefreiter martin of Gren. Res. Btl. 208 is more informative and includes a report in the back from the senior medical staff of the Regiment diagnosing him with Typhus fever (Fleckfieber) on 16.3.43. Here his records end and the final page at the back of the book, which has perforated slip and is entitled "discharged from active service", has been removed. So we have to draw our own conclusions as to his fate.

National Hunting Association Cutlass - Clemen & Jung This Hunting Association Cutlass is a top end production piece, as are most of the products of the Clemen & Jung firm. The pommel has umbrella-like "stages" around the upper surface and the edges are decorated with lines. The top button is round and not the usual acorn. The ferrule has a pair of raised accent lines running all the way around. The crossguard arms end in simulated deer legs with hooves in an opposed configuration. The fur on these legs is rendered directly from the metal. Below is a conventional clamshell. The grip is made from antler with a rich brown color. Pinned to the center obverse is a very fine National Hunting "DJ" insignia. The scabbard shell is an early brown leather version. The matching silvered scabbard mounts have scalloped edges and the lower mount has two sets of twin accent lines which only appear on the surface of the mount. The reverse of both mounts are plain. These mounts are retained by staples in the usual manner, with visible numbers below each staple. The triple etched blade of this cutlass shows a fair bit of use and the etching is faint but can be seen. The blade measures 14 inches long and the obverse has three different etched scenes: a dog attacking a boar, a stag and doe loving up under a pair of fir trees, and a two game birds lurking in some grass. The reverse has only two scenes. The first is stag bounding through a glen and the second is a fox savaging a rabbit. The reverse is stamped with the Crown trademark of the prestigious Clemen & Jung firm, and the original brown leather blade washer is in place. The dagger will still strip down very nicely.

Portapee for the Water Protection Dagger The Wasserschutzpolizei or Water Protection Police were the sole police branch to wear a dress dagger. Their function was to patrol the many rivers, canals, and lakes prevalent throughout Germany.
