  1. Heeres-Flakartillerie-Abt Grossdeutschland - signed by Eugen Wößner
  2. The book Red Storm Over The Balkans by David Glantz covers the fighting in Romania during the spring of 1944.

  5. According to WW-2 Awards, his Wehrpass does exist in a collection somewhere. That would provide pointers to some of the answers. And I have just found out that his Wehrpass & Soldbuch was sold on the WAF a few years ago and resides in France, but who that owner is I have not got a clue.
  6. No idea. As far as I'm aware the only two in existence are in Münster and Kubinka.
  7. From this weekend (which is Tankfest) they are introducing a CGI viewer sort of thing from World of Tanks whereby, I think, you put on a pair of 3D Virtual Reality goggles and you can see a rendered life size version of the Sturmtiger. They had the console in place playing an advert for it but it wasn't up and running. You can see the set-up on the right of the second photo.
  8. Yesterday I had a day out and visited the Bovington Tank Museum and here are some photos of the Tiger Exhibition. Unfortunately they haven't managed to get a Sturmtiger but they do have a Sturmtiger gun barrel. The Porsche variant of the Königstiger and the Jagdtiger... ...and the shell that the Jagdtiger fired: The Henschel variant of the Königstiger and the Elefant which is on loan for 2 years from the US. Lastly, the well known Tiger '131' and the Sturmtiger's gun barrel.
  9. Nice photo - do you think it is a relative of the previous owner?
  10. Deutsches-Reichs-Sportsabzeichen in Silber for a future Tech.Inspektor.
