Great amount of nice details for your Spanish volunteer impression, for sure you have put a great effort in it. A nice detail typical from that time can be a “Chisquero” and “picadura” tobacco.

Cheers! :)

Max.

Many thanks guys I tried to do my best!! :D
Good idea the "Chisquero" and the "picadura" !
There was one mistake in the personal effects , The Soldbuch, (It was not issue to the Blue Division although it is shown in the Almena´s Book LENINGRADO 1941-1944. LA DIVISIÓN AZUL EN COMBATE what made me commit the mistake ) but it is already been solved, and Now I have a correct Personalausweis for the 250 division :D

They didn't use the Soldbuch? Or they have it in the company with the Spiess and use the Personalausweis for the day to day?

Can you post a pic. from your Personalausweis please? :)

As far as I know they only had the Personalausweis , (That would explain why I haven´t saw a single Blue Division Solbuch till now...they have none :) ) in "DAS HEER, uniformes y distintivos PG. 120 Ricardo Recio Cardona Y Antonio González Sánchez and in "El Servicio de intendencia de la División Azul also from Ricardo Recio Cardona Pag 160 two examples or original Personalausweis can be seen but none from Soldbuch.

Heres mine (Repro )..I would like to have it a little whiter in colour but at the moment is the best I colud get (Also I been told that they were in origin light green as mine fading then to white with the years. )
