  1. Citation - KVK 1st Class with Swords
  2. French Soldiers picking their way through the Somme Battlefield
  3. First day of the Somme battle card - "The glorious First of July 1916 - Our first prisoners" English Daily Mail Battle Pictures postcard (maybe staged) shows German soldiers coming in. The reverse has a printed paragraph "a great flow of German prisoners into the British camps began immediately with the Great Advance, and the picture shows the first batch marching in". Propaganda card gone badly wrong, more considering the casualties the British suffered on that day.
  4. KVK 2 with Swords citation - 2 May 1942 (Expensive, sought after signature, Weitze has one on offer €500)
  5. Came across this Opferring membership pass - different design from Don's shown in post 5, maybe due to different area - Württemberg 1939. Swastikas blacked out.
  6. Thanks for the posts Don, after reading them I did find the piece on page 403. Glad you mentioned the suspect paint work, I was wondering, as on mine and Weitze's badges there not one speck of paint / enamel on any of them, to me and mine hasn't a scratch there never was any paint. A compliment, this thread and others in the enamel & membership database are head and shoulders above anything else on offer, I could find in any of the military forums, when it comes down to in-depth detail. Cheers
  7. Elsass Opfering Not seen in the thread so far, also not shown in Hüsken's 2010 catalogue. All metal 2,3cm dia.detailed back with makers name - Foerster & Barth - Pforzheim, RZM and M 9/7 marks. Why its not in the catologue, I've no idea,don't think its especially rare, at the time of writing Weitze has three on offer.
  8. Large 40mm dia. metal Tinnie - Leipzig exhibition 1939
  9. NSDAP Kreistagung Kaufbeuren 7 Juni 1936 - Metal Tinnie
  10. Not shown before on thread - 4cm diameter - Metal - Jungbann 7 Sportfest 1936 Lüben
  11. Picked up these four stick-pins last summer, unsure exactly what three of them are for, left to right - (1) Looked through Hüskens catalogue, found to be a Nazi sympathisers badge. (2) Could be a WW1 veterans badge, never come across such a design, wound badge on top of a iron cross ! (3) Swastika on flower (edelweiss) maybe for a Hochland Group sympathiser ? (4) Small pin - swastika in laurel wreath Does anyone have any ideas ? Regards
