  6. A friend has asked me to try and identify this signature for him and I am currently stuck on it, I can not even identify the first letter. Is it an A, F or something else? It is signed on behalf of GdA Wiktorin and there is a chance it could be a Luftwaffe Generalleutnant and I am basing that solely on not being able to find a Heer name in my books and files that might fit. So could be Heer but could be Luftwaffe.

  10. I have no idea I'm afraid although I suppose you could say it is both.
  11. Hadn't thought of that. Could be a possibility.
  12. Nothing wrong with bringing an older topic back to the fore again, especially with the nice examples shown.
  13. A Narvik related Soldbuch is this one to a sailor who served on one of the destroyers and was wounded during the battle. Unfortunately as the Kriegsmarine didn't start issuing SB until June 1941, and by then this sailor was serving on Z-23, it isn't possible to identify what destroyer he was on during the battle. As far as I can find out there are no casualty lists for the ships involved that actually name those wounded. It comes with a colourised image with the cap band having an emblem on it but I haven't been able to identify it to see if it helps narrow down the possibilities.
  14. General der Artillerie Friedrich Fromm Born: 08 Oct 1888 Died: 12 Mar 1945 - executed for his role in 20th July 1944 plot. Highest rank reached: Generaloberst Chef des Allgemeines Heeresamt (OKH) Chef der Heeresruestung und Befehlshaber des Ersatzheeres RK: 13 July 1940
  15. It could certainly bear some weight. I am assuming it was a prop for some sort of play?
