Passierschein for units

This is, like the leaflet on the previous page, a passierschein (safe-conduct).

But this specific leaflet informs the German soldiers that the leaflet can act as a Safe-Conduct for a complete unit.

The allied did learn from interogating German POWs that German soldiers wanting to surrender did worry about not having a Safe-Conduct for every soldier in person. So the allied propagandists developed this 'Unit-Pass'.
