Very nice - and truly unsually encountered! - WH vehicle ID-paper or: 'Begleitheft', as issued for a: 'Lastkraftwagen Ford (Rum.)', holding the license-plates: 'RU-15461' - used but fully complete and/or filled-in condition!
This is a truly very nice - and very unsually encountered! - WH vehicle ID-paper (ie. booklet) or: 'Begleitheft', as issued for a: 'Lastkraftwagen Ford (Rum.)', holding the license-plates (or: 'Amtliches Kennzeichen') that reads: 'RU-15461', in used but fully complete and/or filled-in and/or ink-stamped condition. The neat, soft-cover booklet (measuring: 20,5 x 14,5 cms.) holds all its 40 pages as to be expected. These booklets were the only - and official means! - to identify a WH vehicle and had to be kept with the vehicle at all times. The neat booklet on offer here was issued in the town of Pilia (IMO in Italy) on 7 July 1944. It most likely belonged to a truck that served within a unit that holded the: 'Feldpostnummer 41398' (as can been seen on the entries and/or ink-stamp as visible on first page of the booklet - see photos). According to my references was this 'Feldpostnummer' attributed to a unit named the: 'Kfz.-Instandsetzungs-Park 602' (something that is furthermore elaborated by the ink-stamped entry on page 22 - see photo). The booklet only holds some minimal entries (on regular maintenance and/or technical check-ups) and is for the rest void of entries. It is however clearly used and has somewhat yellowed ie. became slightly stained over the years: it furthermore shows some normal wear and/or age. Simply a very nice and most certainly unusually encountered vehicle ID-booklet as issued for a WH-vehicle ie. 'Lastkraftwagen' or truck that IMO would merit further investigation. This is only the first - and maybe last! - such neat paper-item I have ever encountered!
