    blood order

    O.K. Hear we go folks,i was wandering around a car boot sale in west wales,where i sometimes visit.There was a man there selling mostly cap badges and british army bits and pieces.I went to his stall to take a look and lo and behold i see 2 german awards.One was a iron cross 2nd class and the other was the cased blood order.Not knowing much about blood orders,i casually enquired what it was and asked for a look at it.He explained the history to me and then i remembered i had seen one in angolia,s book.To cut a long story short it felt good in the hand,and i liked the feeling of it.He wanted 85 pound for it,not being too sure i walked away and came back 5 mins. later.I got it down to 65pounds,and although reluctant to sell decided to let me have it.I sent it to an old ass.of mine Colin Brown who declared it was a good one.I was really delighted to find out about it.It is the lucky find in my life.Glad you were interested what a dream. best regards Mike.

    rigger

    Hope i am in the right spot for this.My father was in the glider pilot reg.during the 2nd w.w.His name was James Smith and he was a sargeant.On my birth cert. he was classed as aircraft rigger.Would appreciate someone filling me in on what this entailed.My mother and father broke up after the war and i have lost contact.He would be well in to his eighties now if still alive.MAny thanks in anticapation.Mike Smith.
