Early War French Civilian Set

Early War French Civilian Set

Amazingly enough, the German occupation of France had little impact on the day to day life of French citizens, insofar as their documents were concerned. As such, the design and layout of many prewar documents carried over into the early years of the war and into early stages of the occupation. This set comprises what French civilians would have carried until about 1942. It includes the Carte d'Identité (identification card) and Récépissé (validation receipt) which was affixed to the Carte d'Identité upon proof to a city official that you were indeed who you claimed to be, a Récépissé de Déclaration, which was a vehicle declaration form, as all vehicles from automobiles to ox carts to bicycles were required to be registered, a Carte de Tabac, or tobacco ration card, and a Carte Individuelle de Alimentation, or individual ration card, into which was glued food ration cards (of which three are included). Since the amount of rations was dependent upon one's profession, please select which classification of labor you wish from the pull down menu before adding to the shopping cart; otherwise, the default selection will be Farmer or Farm Laborer.

Please download this form, copy and paste the information with your answers into an email with a photo, and send it to me after you've ordered. I will complete the forms, varying my own handwriting to make it look like more than one person filled them out, and mark them with the correct reproduction stamps, just like the originals in my collection.

Late War French Set

Late War French Civilian Set

My most extensive collection yet, this set includes reproductions of pieces that were found in the attic of a town hall in a small town in Charante-Maritime. They were scheduled to be thrown out but were saved by a historically minded Frenchman.

This set includes a few forms that existed early in the war, but many that did not, and which are not in the early war set above. It comes with the Carte d'Identité (Identity Card) from 1944; the Carte de Vêtements (Clothing Ration Card) used from 1942 until 1947 and the pink Tickets de Vêtements (Clothing Ration Coupons) which were glued to the inside left edge of the card; the Carte de Tabac (Tobacco Ration Card); the Carte d'Alimentation (Food Ration Card) and three different rations; a Carte de Sinistré for emergency contact in the event of an "accident" (handy information when the country was prowled by both Allied bombers and the Gestapo); a Laissez-Passer or Travel Pass; a Certificat de Recensement, a form that showed that one had cooperated in the 1942 census, which was very important because of the Affectations en Allemagne card, which listed exemptions and requirements for compulsory labor service in Germany, required by both industrial demands within the Third Reich and French Law!

Whew! This collection will astound any German soldier asking for your papers, and is so complete that there isn't enough room to describe the contents on the back of the hang tag; I had to create a separate insert to describe everything. At this price, you will not find more reproduction items anywhere, especially of this era in France. Vive la Resistance!
