Unique II./NJG 1 certificate to "Staffelkapitän Oberleutnant Fritz Karstens"

Description

Unique handwritten impressive certificate giving "Staffelkapitän Oberleutnant Fritz Karstens" the title of a "Gruppengeneraltrunkenbold". The title is a funny way to call him the most drunken soldier of his Gruppe which was II./NJG 1.

Karstens has served as a Nachtjäger pilot with 7./NJG 1 as far as we could find out. 

The document was issued on in "Königsberg" on "11.11.1943". It comes with original signatures of his Gruppenkommandeur Hauptmann Manfred Meurer, signatures of the Staffelkapitän of 7. Staffel, of 8. Staffel and of 9. Staffel as well as of several other officers of the Gruppe.

A large size document from high quality. Handpainted with watercolors. Sprinkled with blue, green and pink color. Painted pictures. Separately attached printed paper seal (sunken printed) on a paper stripe.

The artist has signed just below the three bottles. The name is hard to read. The dated is certainly "43".

Good condiiton 2. Unique. 68cm x 43,5cm. Folded three times.
