  1. I have subsequently become the current owner of this Soldbuch. A photo of Landgraf has still been elusive but there was an image that I found of the U-597 bridge crew which I believe includes Landgraf. Below is a link to my website with Landgrafs career which includes the balance of his rank and career from Deutsche Dienstelles response to my inquiry. http://aufhimmelzuhause.com/id439.htm Enjoy Jeremy
  2. Nice Wehrpas and interesting history on the flyer. These pilots who served prewar are always interesting from the standpoint that these flyers/crews constituted the backbone of the LW and their subsequent attrition gradually ground down the depth with respect to experience the LW had going into the war.
  3. I think I would go with KM Auxilary Cruiser badge. If you look at the negative space (void) on the upper left it seems to match. interestiing topic. jeremy
  4. Paul that looks like quite the group! when you have time would love to see scans of his Soldbuch! nice research project ahead of you. Jeremy
  5. Turtle is correct about his LW rank. Without knowing his units or rank title hard to tell what specific admin branch he was attached to. Jeremy
  6. Very nice!! I would agree that not a great deal is written about these female books. You see them periodically but I think the dedicated thread is a great idea. Jeremy
  7. Paul Correct I am basing it on the RLM posting etc.. It appears, Kevin correct me if i am wrong, that he was not directly involved in a combat role, perhaps in the closing months, and his attachment to the Luftkriegschule would not have been as a flight instructor. Jeremy
  8. Beautiful group! I am really a fan of the LW admin. SB/WP, and this equally has a nice tight group of awards! Jeremy
  9. Claudius That is some great info. on this group and a nice bonus to what we already discussed. Nick excellent job of pulling out more historic data. Great stuff!
  10. Beautiful pass Paul! I will try to post some schein this weekend. Jeremy
