Administrative and biographical
Ray Petitfrère was a Belgian historian and a teacher at the School voor Jachtwachters / l'École des Gardes-Chasses in Namur, Belgium. From 1946 until 1979 he published several books on national-socialism, including a three volume biography of Adolf Hitler, and on military themes such as weapons and hunting.
Archival
The scrap book was created in 1961-1962 by Ray Petitfrère, perhaps in preparation of a new historical publication. The scrapbook might have been part of a larger series and was probably obtained by a buyer-up when cleaning out a house. Jean-Marie Cottyn purchased the scrap book on a flea market in Kortrijk and subsequently donated the original item to Kazerne Dossin in 2019.
