Feld. Gend. paperwork

Post by Feldjager »

Below is an image of some of the paperwork carried by a Feldgendarm on a daily basis. Not the most exciting, but someone may be interested!
Image

The cream books at the left back are the 'Feldgendarmerie Vorschriften', which basically provide details of his duties and authorities. In the event of a dispute over jurisdiction, this book could be consulted for a definitive answer. These are reproductions made from my original by one of the unit members.

The green books at the right back are the 'Tagebuch', which is essentially a pocket notebook. It had to be completed on a daily basis, at the beginning and end of a shift; it also noted any use of force/firearms, particulars of an arrest, any evidence gathered or items siezed. these had to be signed in and out along with the vorschriften by the duty officer. Again, these are reproductions from my original.

The cream pad at the front left is an A5 sized 'meldeblock' which was used for making basic reports, or sending basic messages by runner or wireless. The front has a lit of all the map symbols that could be used, and each of the 25 pages is lined on the front and has a grid on the rear for making basic maps.

Lastly, the pads on the front right are fixed penalty fine ticket books for minor traffic offences - these could be issued to civilian and military drivers alike, and include driving offences as well as vehicle defects. The fine inside is given in RM and French Francs (I think these are 10RM fines). Military vehicle defects were also recorded in a triplicate booklet (one copy for the driver, one for the driver's CO and one for the FG records) - these had to be fixed within a certain period or the driver could be arrested (sound familiar? Should do as the current VDRS scheme used in the UK is exactly the same - 7 days to rectify the defect and get the ticket stamped by an MoT test station, or you get a summons!).

Also present are the handcuffs, pouch, 'come-alongs' and baton.

Hi Sjoerd,

It was Ivan and I that gave you the paperwork - I remember it!

We are tentativley looking at the possibility of reproducing some of the paperwork that we have and offering it for sale (to cover costs), however at the moment it's a matter of time and finding all the relevant files etc.!

I forgot the say that the Meldeblock pads are not an exclusive FG item - they were used by everyone in the mapcases.

We can't make W&P again this year, due to work commitments. I'd like to try and get there next year for the weekend with some of the kit!

Will do - I don't know how much they might cost - the Vorschriften is a pain as it has loads of typed correction that need gluing in to update it from the original 1940 edition!

What would all these pads be carried in? A map case, or stuffed in pockets? Todays probbies wear their docs pouch with all the forms in, but soon lose it from their belt as it marks them out as a new boy!

Meldeblock is designed for the map case. FG vorschriften was supposed to be top right pocket and the tagebuch in the lower right. Like that was adhered to....!

Sorry to raise an old thread - I know it's normally shunned upon :oops: but I managed to get
hold of a Meldeblock pad from Ivan, arrived this morning via Ebay - Fantastic.

I know of at least one Feldgendarmerie in my little (Comrades in Arms WW2 Airsoft) group and myself that are very interested in obtaining the paperwork shown in the picture.

I unfortunately missed out on the 'full set' that Ivan had made available on Ebay :cry:

I realise that we're not on par with some of the more dedicated reenactment groups, but as you can see by this post, we're interested in raising the bar, so to speak.

Any information relating to online sources and/or adding to any list of waiting for a re-run of the documents would be much appreciated.

Thanks

Del
