Nazi Flag With Capture Papers

Recommended Posts

I bought this from a member of a German militaria forum.  I have a few ww2 German flags, however really loved that this flag came with the original capture documents and package.

 

 

This flag was sent home in late November 1944 by Corporal Vernon Shafer, of the 83rd Armored Reconnaissance Battalion (under the 3rd Armored Division).  Unfortunately I have no information on Corporal Shafer.

Here's a link to After Action Reports covering the 83rd Armored Reconnaissance Battalion during the time period in which Vernon would've captured the items.

You're welcome.  Luckily it was just out there and available.
