L022381 JUMP CARD LOG "Fallschirmjäger".

WW2 German Paratrooper Jump Log Card. The training card for paratrooper trainee Erhard Boden (an ironic last name for a paratrooper, meaning "Ground" in German) from 1943. Very interesting in that it shows he made all of his training jumps from two unusual aircraft, the Dornier 23 and the Heinkel 111, neither of which was well suited to the role of dropping paratroops, as both required paratroopers to drop out of the crew boarding hatch on the underside of the fuselage. The standard German troop parachute at this time, the RZ16, was not designed for this type of aircraft, but rather for diving head first like an Olympic Diver from the side door of the JU52. This shows historically the scarcity of the usual training aircraft, the Junkers 52 (Ju52 or "Tante Ju") at this time in France. 14cm x 21cm.
