German Luftwaffe POW Album, Fort Riley, Paratrooper, Herman Goring Division
An excellent surviving Luftwaffe POW photograph album. Album is compiled within the POW issue German Red Cross book given to German POWs, itself quite a rare book to find. Within the album are documents, photographs and personal letters relating to a Gefr. Eduard Kappl of 2./E.R.Div.H.G. along with photos of camp life, other prisoners including a nice photograph of paratrooper wearing his awards in shirt order. Plenty of documentation relating to his captivity including camp tokens, International Red Cross messages to the man's family and so on. Some items no doubt added once he was at home after release. These albums are particularly scarce, Fort Riley housed senior military personnel, paratroopers and prisoners they felt were worth keeping an eye on. I will add to the images in due course.
