During the war Frank served as an NCO in Luftgau-Kommando VI Munster/Westfarlen, possibly with a flak crew defending the city. Complete with large research file containing 10 pages of documentation about this interesting SA officer, i am sure much more could be discovered about this officer from careful study of these documents. A really lovely badge with a fascinating documented history which i can highly recommend.[ Condition: Mint]
