  1. Looking at his service record it appears he did not serve on any Hilfskreuzer. Cheers,Martin. http://www.geocities.ws/orion47.geo/WEHRMACHT/KRIEGSMARINE/Vizeadmirals/RIEVE_FRIEDRICH.html
  2. Now that is a nice one Larry. With awards and specialty badges. Great photo. Cheers,Martin.
  3. Here's a little info Larry. Cheers,Martin. http://www.ww2.dk/air/seefl/mausi.html
  4. The Luft guy was probably a member of a Mausi Unit ? They flew Ju 52's and were involved in Minesweeping operations. Here's one that I have.What I like about this photo is that you can see that he is wearing a horizontal pin Minesweeper award by Deumer. Cheers,Martin.
  5. No idea on how many postcards were printed Edgar ? This is a real photo PK and it was written by one of the U-9 crewmen and sent to his uncle with reference to the sinking of HMS Hawke. Cheers,Martin.
  6. The crew of the U-9 in a photo postcard dated 1914. I think the tallies read UNTERSEEBOOTS.HALBFLOTTILLE.
  7. I'm not a moderator here,and yes I started this thread years ago,and I titled it "Kriegsmarine" because I did not collect, and knew little about Imperial navy history,where as I was a collector of KM awards and photo's. Yes,we can add pre-Kriesgsmarine tallies to the thread but I think the earlier tallies might benefit more in their own thread in the Imperial forum ?? Now I love to look at photo's and there has been some great stuff posted here over the years. So, I pose this question to the main crontributors to this thread....Should we add the Kaiserliche/Imperial tallies and re-title the thread or ask for a new thread on pre-KM tallies to be added to the Imperial forum ?? I guess i'm good either way. Regards,Martin.
  8. It's a specialized subject Morten that not many can contribute to,i think. As mentioned,there is interest but not a day to day subject. I have very little Narvik related items and what I have has been posted. Regards,Martin.
