    German V-2 Rockets: Rare 1943 Demag Document Regarding Order for Two Compressors. A one page document of 8.25" x 6" dated December 10, 1943, partially-printed and filled in by typewriter with numerous initials, signatures, and stamps applied. A very rare original document sent from Demag in Hamburg to their facility in Duisburg regarding parts made by them for use in the German V-2 Rocket project. Demag was a heavy-equipment manufacturer that participated in the war effort by designing and building armored fighting vehicles and halftracks. Mittelwek G.m.b.H. is mentioned twice in the document; this was the underground WWII factory that used concentration camp labor to build V-1s, V-2s, and other weapons. The rocket facility near Peenemunde, HAP (Heimat-Artillerie-Park) Karlshagen, is also mentioned. The body of text can be translated: "We ask that the attached original letter from Mittelwerk GmbH from 22.v.M. be answered directly. It is regarding the above order for 2 H2S 005 compressors. These machines must be dispatched in accordance with the order of January 1944. We assume that the shipping address has changed and that they will get further information from Mittelwerk." Very good.
