Recently I joined the Yahoo newsgroup WH-Schreibstube, a group for disscussing original WW2 German paperwork and paperwork recreations for living history. I was hoping to find more examples on German paperwork for me to reproduce.

At that moment there was a question of one of the members, if there was someone who could make a reproduction of the ‘Einsatzbuch für Nachrichtenhelferinnen’, an ID-booklet for female Signals Auxiliaries. I hesitated for a moment to respond, but after a while I did. Telling that I could reproduce such a booklet if I had a good example. Another member than provided me with some high resolution scans of an original Einsatzbuch (Thanks Oliver).

So now I am working on the reproduction of such an Einsatzbuch für Nachrichtenhelferinnen des Heeres. It’s a 24 page booklet with a cardboard cover.

First cleaning the Eagle so I can make a good workable image of it to use for my repros. I also was looking for the right typeface, but the ones used in the late 30s and 40s are hard to find. I do have a lot of German fraktur typefaces, but there isn’t one which exactly matches the ones used in the original. So the ones used as headers I do have to make myself then… After researching the internet I found out that they were used in the Soldbuch aswell. So if I can make that typeface myself I can use it for making a Soldbuch (Wehrmacht version) aswell.

Also looking on the internet I found a whole lot of interesting documents for females. Probably after finishing this booklet I will start on the ‘Einsatzbuch für Stabshelferinnen des Heeres’.


So this ‘Einsatzbuch für Nachrichtenhelferinnen des Heeres’ will be available in the shop very soon.
