  1. Greetings Gentlemen, I am trying to get some unit information from this document. Where they went, what they did, when they ended their service as this Gentleman was captured by the French and held until 1920! Any assistance would be greatly appreciated, Vince
  2. WOW, Many thanks Dave. What took you minutes would have taken me months! Please tell me what you like to collect, I feel a gift is coming your way! I will not bother you for small items but may call upon your expertise again if you permit. I cannot thank you enough! Knowing what something says/means really opens my appreciation of this man and his life. It is an honor to have his documents and medals. His wife has some as well. I included a photo of the decorations that came with this grouping. Thank you again! Your friend, Vince A few more docs!
  3. Thank you Jens, Now I have to figure out what it is and what it says! My German is basic at best and reading their hand writing is always a beast. If you could just give me a synopsis of what it is and says that would be awesome. Thanks again, Vince
  4. Great thank you! I appreciate your help. I have a nice family grouping with docs from him and his wife from 1914-1942. I am sure I will have a few more questions as I research them. Thanks again to All! Vince
  5. Does anyone know what his title on this black wound document means? Is his title a Professor Doctor of Philosophy????
  6. Hi Dave, Many thanks for this most valuable information. Was WW 1 different from WW 2 reference the wound badge and numbers of wounds corresponding to color. Why did he only get the black when he was wounded 2-3 times? Thanks again for your help, Vince
  7. Greetings Gentlemen, I am trying to research this Gentleman and his military unit history during WW1 and do not know where to start. If anyone can help it would be greatly appreciated. Thank you, Vince
  8. Greetings All, As a brand new collector of militaria well over 40 years ago my first uniform was a German Army Afrika Korps tunic. So since then the AK has held a special place in my collector's heart. This is my latest acquisition and my first AK medal bar ever! I hope you enjoy seeing it. I do not know if there is an AK thread but if there is please let me know as I would love to see other AK medal bars. Happy Hunting, Vince
  9. Many thanks for the info John! Vince
  10. A wonderful grouping I recently acquired. It is a family grouping with many documents to both husband and wife from the WW1 period thru WW2. Enjoy, Vince
  11. A few of my favorite Bavarian ones! Happy Hunting, Vince
  12. A few new additions to keep this thread active! Happy Hunting! Vince
  13. Greetings to All, I do not know if this is the correct location for this post. I am looking to purchase a 25 year Wehrmacht Long Service Cross. Just the medal on its ring no ribbon needed. Thank you for any assistance! Vince
  14. I will post better photos once it comes into my possession! Thank you & Happy Hunting!
  15. Greetings to all, Has anyone seen anything like this before? I know ZERO about the Hungarian medals and could use some help identifying these medals and who could have earned such awards. Many thanks, Vince
  16. Greetings, Here is one I just rediscovered in an old box! Gotta love the Non-Combatant EKs!
  17. Greetings to all, I could use some help identifying these foreign medals found on TR Medal Bars. Any additional info you could provide as to what type of German Soldier would have received these medals on their bar would be greatly appreciated! Many thanks, Vince
  18. Hello, Thank you for your analysis, it makes sense. Would you please identify these items for me? Thanks again, Vince
