[Extraordinary army manuscript] "Berichten cahier Commandant 11e Grensbataljon".

Manuscript, (78) p., with communications for internal military use dated from Sunday 25 February to Friday 10 May 1940 and on the facing page short annotations indicating to which departments (coded, e.g. "1-11 GB", "2-11-GB" or "Gr.C.M.W." with MW meaning Maas Waal) the messages were communicated, bound in half cloth with title label on front, folio (slightly worn).

Some of the blank (?) pages after the military notes are missing, at the end unrelated annotations concerning direct pressure gauges are included, provided with drawn illustrations. On the cloth the name G.H.J. Welling (?) is repeatedly written. Very interesting original military notebook, in which the most important communication by the 11th Grensbataljon in the months before the capitulation is included, until shortly before the Battle of the Grebbeberg, in which the battalion took part.
