I will be posting the different document groups of my collection, where the soldier was awarded the Zollgrenzschutz Ehrenzeichen.

I hope this will be of interest to you :)

First up, we have Zollassistenten Rudolf Galke

Awarded the Zollgrenzschutz Ehrenzeichen 31st of March 1943

Next up, Zollassistenten Hans Schmitt

As you can see from the documents, Schmitt was in the army before and after his Customs service

He was promoted to Wachtmeister in 1934, while serving in 2./Eskadron Fahr Abteilung 5. 

In 1936, he had moved on to 2. Battr. Beob. Abt. 5, where he was awarded the 4 year Long Service Medal.

In 1938, he was awarded the 12 year Long Service Medal, while serving with Beobachterabteilung 6.

Some time after this he was transferred to the Zollgrenzschutz, where he was awarded his Ehrenzeichen on the 30th of March 1942.

Next move is back to the Army, where he was awarded KVK2 and EK2 in 1944 while serving with 3./ H. Art.Abt. 602. He had been promoted to Stabswachtmeister at this point.

Pardon my bad pictures, as I do not have my scanner available :)

Hello Robert,

Thank you for having presented these two interesting groups. The second group is interesting by the military course of his holder. Beautiful acquisitions, congratulations.

Have you Dienstausweis in your collection ?

In the pleasure to read to you and cordial greetings.

Polux

Great looking set with an abundance of research potential. Nice signature of future General der Gebirgstruppe Ludwig Kübler (RK in 1939) on the 1934 Wachtmesiter promotion citation. He would be executed for war crimes in 1947.

Hello,

I pursue the work introduced by Robert S. with the presentation of this Dienstausweis for a Hilfszollassistenten delivered in January, 1944 by the Befehlstelle de Besançon (municipality of the department of the Doubs in France). Cordial greetings.

Polux
