  1. What do you think about plaque? There was one for sale, similar to this one, but it was awarded to Rudolf Singule. Sold for 1850 GBP. Have you seen anything similar? Did plaques ever existed or they are modern fantasies? Material looks too shiny and box also looks new. At least skin does. It is not possible to download photos so I am posting a link to Rudolf Singule plaque. It definitely looks better than Weddigen´s. I am not sure is it forbidden to post links. If it is, please delete it or I will do it. https://www.relicmilitaria.com/product/imperial-german-submarine-officers-presentaion-plaque-dated-1915-in-case/#

    Unknown arm insignia

    Hello Bayern. Thank you for your help. Photo is part of the photo lot I got from Czech republic. So, I presume they are not Heimwehr.

    Unknown arm insignia

    Except MG and Bergfuhrer insignia I have never seen anything else worn on the sleeve. It looks like an anchor plus something else. Anybody saw something similar?

    A General with the "Literis et Artibus" Medal

    This is not correct information. Vojnovic surname can be found in Dalmatia in small town Omis and all of them are Croats. In town Petrinja and Glina we can find Vojnovic surname too, but they are Serbs and Petrinja and Glina are in Banija, which is continental part of Croatia. Dalmatia is coastal part of Croatia.

    The "dude"....

    Thank you Chris. One more question. Does it mean that all members of the unit then get the cross or only guys who already got cross now also get palm on the ribbon.

    The "dude"....

    That is Cross for Military Valour? What does it means whet it has palm on the ribbon?

    Is this Italian submarine badge?

    This is definitely new for me. Thank you once again.

    Is this Italian submarine badge?

    I know that very well but I am grasping at straws. I thought it is Spanish at first but I couldn´t find any information about this badge nor about its maker. It is not in the Prichard´s Submarine badges book and I can´t find it on the internet either. Badges are similar but not the same.

    Is this Italian submarine badge?

    I know how it looks like. That is why I said I haven´t seen this type of Italian badge before. So, I was right. Now I need to find out how did it end up here? Thank you Bayern.
  10. Emedals has this badge listed as Italian Kingdom sub badge, 1942. I have never seen it before. This is one I have. I found it on one of the beaches in my town. We were searching there a lot cause that is the place where they threw all the rubble after bombardment in ww2. Name of the city is Zadar(Zara) and it was under Italian rule until 1943. We found lot of Italian insignia there but this one was unusual. At first I thought it was Spanish. Maybe sailors went in Spain on some Submarine training i thought. But now, when I found this badge on Emedals it seems it is Italian. If that badge is Italian at all. Only difference is that mine is made of silver and it has that hole for a stone, like Spanish sub badges have. What do you think. Are these badges Italian at all? Maybe Barry made a mistake while listing that badge or I am completely wrong going into spanish direction.
  11. I think there is more turkish medals on his right pocket.

    Sale or trade. Big A3 format CDV of Dragonerregiment Prinz Eugen von Savoyen Nr. 13 stab. Photo was taken in 1875. I want to trade it for K.u.K. Croatia related stuff or KuK Kriegsmarine. If you have KuK Km diver photos, that would be great. Also, I will trade for any navy stuff related to Adriatic sea and German ww1 submarines.

    FOR EUROPE; The French Volunteers of the Waffen SS by Robert Forbes Definitive account of French volunteers in the Waffen-SS Blow-by-blow retelling of battles on the Eastern Front, including the fight for Berlin Focuses on all French SS units, especially the 33rd SS Grenadier Division "Charlemagne" Impeccably researched, this book tells the story of the Frenchmen who, motivated by their hatred of Communism, chose to fight for the Third Reich in World War II, first in the regular army and then as part of the Waffen-SS. These unique soldiers participated in bitter combat, primarily against the Soviets, and returned home to an awkward peace. I am asking 20 euros + shipping and Paypal fees.

    Unknown Officer and Sailor - Serbian? WW1?

    These are Kingdom Yugoslavia sailor and soldier(officer???). Cap tally says "Torpiljarka T6" which means "Torpedo boat T6". Torpedo boat T6 is ex Austro-hungarian Tb 93F. It even served in Italian navy during ww2 but crew sank it after capitulation 1943. If you are not interested in this photo I would gladly buy it or trade something cause I am collecting Kingdom Yugoslavia navy photos. This is photo of SMS Bodrog and Austro-Hungarian sailors. SMS Bodrog later became Yugoslav monitor Sava.
