  1. Here´s a picture of a catholic priest being decorated during the the medal parade at PRT Kunduz in november 2008.
  2. At Last! An EK to the Field Clergy!

    Very interesting grouping! So far I´ve only seen clergymen with non-combatant Hindenburg Crosses!
  3. Nice set, I especially like the citation for the august 1975 forest fire commemorative medal! Did you also get bis Bundeswehr Wehrpass?
  4. Interesting Militärpaß, at first he served as a non-combatant with a construction unit from august 1915 till march 1916. He was then posted to a basic training unit and served with an infantry regiment on the eastern front afterwards. He was awarded the Iron Cross 2nd Class on 23.07.1918!
  5. The medal bar is impressive. especially with this background story!
  6. Hello! I think I saved the Pictures from the Internet, back then! I´ll check on the weekend an then could email you the pictures of the probably missing documents!
  7. Very nice lot, I´ve seen it before on the internet. There were, among other papers, promotion documents from his police service and a citation for the 1936 Olympics Rememberance Medal. Do you also have this files?
  8. In the first picture are the awards of one of my great-grandfathers. The 4 place medal bar with all the commemorative medals is just like the bar my other great-grandfather owned, the original unfortunately got lost.
  9. It could be a Reichsrevolver 83. As far as I know, the holster is for the Reichsrevolver 83, it´s the version with the small front pouch for 12 rounds extra ammunition.
  10. This is really a very beautiful and impresssive medal bar, especially with this great background story!!!
  11. Thanks for looking him up! I know it was a long shot, trying to find something about the guy.
  12. Thanks for the input so far!! The return address on the reverse of the box is the "Director of Navy Accounts, Branch 3B D Block Foxhill Hutments, Bath, Sommerset". Could this point to Coast Guard Service? I would be glad, if somebody with an ancestry.uk access could maybe look him up?
  13. I have this small Defence Medal Set and would like to know, if it´s possible to determine the occupation (e.g. fire brigade, Home Guard ...) for which the recipient received his Defence Medal? The medal was awarded to an Mr W. T. Jeffree from Kilivose Camborne in Cornwall. By Google I was able to find a William Thomas Jeffree Born in 1909 from Camborne, but I don´t know if that´s my recipient?!
  14. In the 2nd one under Strafen they have something new for the 27.1.18 and 21.3 18... Did they then cancel it all? Yes, he was pardoned by a decree of the emperor (given on the emperor´s birthday), which was confirmed by the court on the 21.03.1918. Most probably many soldiers punished for minor infractions were pardoned on this occasion!?
