Hi all.

I have just bought a soldbuch and i am now in the process of filling it in.
I have come to the hurdle that it will eventualy need stamping.

Do any of you know what the stamp should look like?
i.e lettering, type size, etc.

Are there any for sale anywhere?

Cheers H

Compared to other impressions, KM are pretty thgin on the ground. This means you could have problems getting your Soldbuch done. See Marshy on here (Soldbuch.Uk I think his company is called). If he can't help you then maybe best bet would be to get some good images of the stamps you require and get a stationer to make them up. When filling in your Soldbuch be sure to use a fountain pen or at least a pen with a very fine chisel tip (although I find that fountain pen ink looks better if it gets wet than some fine-tipped marker pen. Not that you want your buch to get wet but hey - this is the KM :D )You might find a very fine Rotring pen useful too. Try and change the handwriting style. No Soldbuch I ever see had the same schrift all the way through....it was having the same handwriting in documents like this that used to give away SOE/OSS agents until they got wise to that fact that entries several months apart would not have the same handwriting style. On the web are plenty enough examples of what you should be aiming for.

Hope this helped a little,

Schultze
