Luftwaffe Promotion Document
Bestallungs Urkunde for a Feldwebel raised to Oberfeldwebel for Hans Holzner, Flugzeugüberführungs-Geschwader No.1 (Süd), based in Neubiberg near Munich, dated 27.7.1943 and signed by a Major Fachner (?), acting as a regimental commander, signature not quite legible. Document has the old style first pattern Luftwaffe eagle, older stocks of forms were always to be used up in order to save material. The quality of the paper used was not always the best, due to wartime shortages. The Flugzeugüberführungsgeschwader had the task of delivering aircraft to a set destinatiion, especially involving the delivery of new aircraft from the production to an airfield, where required. The recipient of the document could well have been a pilot, or perhaps maintenance personnel. More info on this unusual unit can be found in internet.
