This was from the occasion of a birthday party held for Grossadmiral Dönitz on 16.9.1940 which would have been his 49th birthday. It was held at a restaurant in France and this an actual menu from the restaurant. It is signed on the reverse by Dönitz and many others in pencil. Written on the front is "Für Sohler" and this was part of a grouping from the estate of Herbert Sohler. The restaurant, Le Coq Hardi in Bougival, was famous for its gourmet food and it cellars that were dug into a hillside. It is now known as "Chez Clement". The menu measures 19cm x 14cm and is in good condition. A great item!
