  2. Hi, Can anybody tell me more the Iron Cross, 2nd Class in a wooden box that I bought. Accordiong to the person that i bopught it from this was for the Schutztruppe as a reminder of their service in overseas. True or False? Thanks. Gordon
  3. Hi, I have not been on this site for a while. Howqever I wish to answer the issue of whether W. L. Simon was entitled to the 'Kalahari 1907' bar or not. I wish to state clearly that the sources that I used for my book were primary i.e. directly from the various archives here in Windhoek, Germany and the U.K. In the German file here in the Namibian Archives on the Morenga incident - for which the German medal was awarded, the official German award list shows that Simon was NOT entitled to the bar as he was not present at the actual engagement with Morenga. Whether Simon bought the bar privately and then attached it to his medal could be a possibility as the bar could be bought directly from the maker here in Windhoek. I hope that this answers the question. Rgds, Gordon McGregor
