This exquisite journal featuring stunning watercolor paintings, belonged to an officer who trained at the flak artillery school located in Wustrow, Germany. The school Lehr-Abteilung der Flakartillerieschule ran from 1 Apr 1935 - 1 Apr 1937. In it he names numerous officers, who's signatures also appear in the book including:
