Description

Luftwaffe photo album of a Flak soldier and later Fallschirmjäger serving on the German islands Norderney with "Batterie Norderney 3/767 in 1940/41.  The album contains rare wartime photographs taken at Nordeney including damaged houses. He took many photos of various aircrafts.

In 1941, he was sent to Karlsruhe, in 1942, to Chieming. He ended up in Russia in 1942. 

Interestingly, this album also contains Fallschirmjäger photos taken in "Kreta" in May 1941 and in Holland in 1940. The photos are original period time pictures, not photos. There are also a few original photographs.

Checking the last page, you will find a postwar note of the veteran listing all his units. It also includes 11. Fallschirmjäger Flak (mot).
There are also some postwar photos of Fallschirmjäger veteran meetings at the end of the album.

Original photo album with the swastika of the eagle overpainted.
Over 350 photos/pictures in total.
