  1. Is that Otto von Oelhafen's signature? You are right in saying these relatively cheap examples can hold great surprises. I remember seeing one quite a few years ago signed by Oakleaves winner and Normandy related General Friedrich Dollmann and regretted not buying it as it was really cheap. Get it in to the Signature Database

  3. Blaschke, Hanns

  8. Fingers crossed in that case. I look forward to hearing the outcome.
  9. Not knowing Canadian areas etc I'm assuming Red Deer isn't far from you in which case that is another pointer that it belongs to you otherwise what would the odds be that a SB that you bought and which got lost in the mail has rocked up just down the road instead of somewhere like Toronto or Vancouver?
  10. That is a coincidence - have you contacted them?

  14. Thanks for the service history of your uncle on the other thread. It looks like he was serving with 2.Minensuchflottille when the above photo was taken. The two paravanes seen in the photo would add weight to this.
  15. Is there any chance you can scan in the part of the photo indicated below at a higher resolution? It might be possible to narrow down the ship if we can read the two cap tallies. It looks like it ends with '...flottille'. There are no awards being worn so possibly pre-WW2.
