Formal award document (Verleihundsurkunde) for the Army paratrooper badge. These documents were awarded only twice, on September 01, 1937 and December 18, 1937. All members of the FIK / FIB who completed/passed the jump course after these dates, were given the badge and the license, but not the formal award document. A total of approximately 400 documents were awarded. The document is in the DIN A4 format and is signed by Generalleutnant Roese, Inspekteur Der Infanterie.
