  1. Yes very nice example
  2. Hi very nice indeed!
  3. Got a chance to add to my Grosskreuz, an example of a nice Souval with OLS, so I thought I'd do it, the case is quite hard to find, It's an early "De-luxe" version of his RK cases, the other type he offered was more basic. the EK1 is a war-time version. Now looking for a minty set of very early RK and EK2. regards
  4. Hi Andreas Once again, thanks for the assistance regards Alex
  5. Hi all, bit of help again with medal ident. attached a picture of George of Saxony, plus his medal bar, looking at it I'm a bit stuck on two of them, any help appreciated as usual. regards Alex K
  6. Might be a case of "Who you know and not what you know"!,
  7. Hi looking at the original, there is no glove on the left hand, (fingers nails are just about visible), as for an injury on his right hand, could possibly be, caption doesn't mention anything regards
  8. Hi all, I remember as a little lad (In the 50's) coming across this image which for some reason captivated me, well I've found it again after many years so decided to have a go at it, the original caption reads "A German Luftwaffe officer POW disembarking in Newhaven, England glances contemptuously at a guard (ca. 1941)" the caption on the image is mine! regards Alex K
  9. Still very nice, particularly like the Long EKII ribbon, looking long ribbons myself regards
  10. Nice thanks
  11. Hi all, thanks for the additional information, didn't realise from the photo I posted that it was a full "Staff" (stick), from the photo it looks white but I assume it would have been silver in reality. regards edit, makes a bit more sense now, with this picture although he's actually holding it by the head unfortunately
  12. And I thought I'd asked a simple question!!, still, getting more interesting
  13. Hi Gentlemen, bath duck it is then on a serious note, would it be equivalent to a Field Marshal's baton type of thing or did he just like walking round with a duck?
  14. Hi very interesting! and thanks for the response, so I assume that it was a specific part of Japanese symbolism. regards
