  3. Hello Folks, I'm looking for a nice clear view of a WW2 Kriegsmarine Maschinenobergefreiter's Rank, Rating / Shoulder Sleeve Insignia. The more I look on both the web, & among my available texts, the more unsure of the exact design I become. If anyone here on the GMIC would PLEASE be so kind as to post a photograph of the Tank / Rating I'm looking for, I'll be extremely appreciative. The KM Sailor I'm researching was as noted above, an Maschinenobergefreiter aboard Schnellboot S-188 during 1944, if that's relevant to actual insignia or rating I'm looking for. THANK YOU Regards, dpast32 ( dpast32@aol.com )

    Chris, Worth reading through this, it may give some pointers for further research. http://1914-1918.invisionzone.com/forums/topic/240115-rfcrnasraf-training-deaths-100-years-on/ Simon

    Hi Micheal, many thanks for your answer. I think Air Force is not that common? Best wishes Chris
  8. I definitely agree. I have seen some Luftwaffe Engineers (Black Waffenfarbe) with Fallschirmjagers, but never Red. Great input.
  9. Hi Gavin - This is wonderful news, indeed. Would you care to share any further information on Brigadier Williamson with me please? For example - a photo of his full - size medal group. Possibly a photo or two of the man himself. Have you done any research / or a write up on this man you would care to share, please ??? In fact I would gratefully receive ANY further details about Williamson and his group that you would care to share with me. I see that you are in Australia. Are you a former South African? Did you acquire the Group there? When? As I say, anything would be most useful for me, thank you, Gavin. If you wish to keep the matter private, then kindly email me at: david@burvest.com. Thanks SO MUCH, again, Gavin. All the best, David Bennett ===========================================================

  16. Hello sir. I am sorry to do this to you, but the tunic itself is post war. Secondly, the collar tress you have on it is for an NCO. Finally, Fallschirmjager used mainly yellow waffenfarbe.
  17. Let’s see it. Maybe it’s not as bad as you thought.

  24. United Arab Republic-Order of Merit

    Nick, Thanks for sharing this, and tough luck about being outbid at the last minute. That can be very frustrating, I know. This is a UAR era award, from the (Egyptian) Military Technical College. It looks like the brass bar at the top has some writing on it but I can't read it. Awards like this are commonly given to the top students from each graduating class, and also probably to some faculty or guests. Because Czechoslovakia did provide considerable support to Egypt during the UAR era, I would agree with you that a Czech or Slovak expert was presented with this award. Best, Chris
