  1. Looking for ideas on what appears to be a French badge.

    This is just a WAG, but I would go with 100% navy. The Anchor is often used for Colonial troops, but there is nothing that suggests an infantry or ground troops connection. The Trident makes it look even more navy like. Unfortunately there is no unit designation, but the French do not only have Regimental badges or official ones. There are also local ones, commemorative ones, etc. etc....
  2. HI, the photos are pretty bad, could you post better ones? This is worth a look.... http://www.medalnet.net/Godet_Pour_le_Merite_de.htm
  3. Hi, he was in the zone and took part, but you would need the regt history to see what the units active role was. There must be further entries for him, I doubt this is where his war ended....

  8. IC II POW LIST Gefangenen EK Liste

    I assume they were approved awards to be handed out when the POW was repatriated. I have had a number of groups where a POW recieved his EK upon returning to Germany. Best Chris
