I know this is not a WWII lot --but I wanted to share this paper lot I got on an DDR Electromechanic Mr.Werner Georg Platt , who got several documents for being a Helper of the DDR-Volkspolizei. Posted by Bernd. First: Award document for being a Volunteer Helper for 25 years, signed by a LtC. Griebel of the VP.

Bernd,

Very neat awards and the kid's drawing is great!

Here is a rather neat photo of a Police Helper assisting with a drunk driving arrest. The helper is wearing a white traffic tunic without any shoulder boards and a DDR Police Helper armband.
