Just 'playing about with the camera' a few weeks back, thought I would post up some of the photos for some "show & tell"   :)

BITS AND PIECES!!!! OMG!!

Is this all to one pilot or singular items in the collection? That 'Erel is top draw, and what looks to be a very nice cased 2nd pattern Assmann PB. As to the Ehrenpokal...out with the camera please....who was the recipient?

"bits and pieces", indeed...you can't get away with that.

Good Morning John

All singular pieces sadly, the Ehrenpokal is to a pilot from KG 26, Uffz Ernst Quaas, awarded 23/1/43,

some photos of it as well as a couple of photos of him....

Very nice, Bob...many thanks for taking the time. Especially like the B&NL pb, very nice condition.

So, had a quick look at some listings and see that Quaas also had the DKiG  when with  5./KG 26 dated 12.7.43.... but then did a general google search and all became clear....quite a service record.

Hi John

This is the information I have so far on Oberfeldwebel Quaas, mainly from a query on the WAF sometime back,-

(I am still unsure of whether he survived the war or not).

Could this be the Ernst? Photo states the this is one Ernst Quaas with his wife on their 65th wedding anniversary. Certainly looks like an older version of him.

What a great find John, and yes it certainly looks like an older version of the man. If he stayed with 5./KG 26 then he

probably finished the war in Norway, so would have missed the savage battles of the last months of the war. Nice to get

confirmation that he survived and lived a long life.

 

Any idea where the photo was taken ?? (other than Germany I presume)  :)

 

Best wishes

So, from what I can gather form the paper's archives (and a little help from a translation app) Ernst and his wife lived in Saxony until the late 90's when they moved to Berlin (Marchwitzastraße, Marzahn-Hellersdorf - Berlin) to be near their daughter, two grand and two great grandchildren.

What a wealth of information on Ernst, a huge thank you John, it certainly makes the Pokal so much more

appealing with this extra history !!      :thumbup:

 

Thanks again, and best wishes

 

Bob
