Hi,

here one of mine, in a not sooo often combination of Minensucher- and Beobachterabzeichen. The Feldwebel seems to have been a soldier for some time (Dienstauszeichnung) and must have seen some action as he was also awarded the EKI.

Nice photo. It would be nice to know his service history. Is that a KvK and Luft 4 Year Service ribbon bar he is wearing.

Photo must have been taken late war.

I was thinking that the Vizeadmiral in the photo I posted above might be August Thiele.

Ribbon bar and medals that can be seen match those awarded to him. Facial features match as well.

Cheers,

Larry

Thank you for your comments Morten and Larry,

unfortunately I don´t know anything more about the photo, would agree with Larry´s analysis.

The Luft guy was probably a member of a Mausi Unit ?

They flew Ju 52's and were involved in Minesweeping operations.

Here's one that I have.What I like about this photo is that you can see that he is wearing a horizontal pin Minesweeper award by Deumer.

 

Cheers,Martin.

Hi Martin,

I second that. Nice photo!

And yes, I too, think he flew the Ju 52 with the eye catiching ring.

Wonderful and rare photos.

Great information too. I had never heard of LW Mausi units.

Cheers,
