  1. Wessel Gordon, Would you please post clearer picture of the obverse of these awards and of the reverse of these awards. Are these awards all authentic? There are lots of copies of the Medal of Honour, and the VC, for sale on the net lately. Regards, Gordon
  2. Gentlemen, In researching this medal I often saw a reference to a lighter coloured medal and a darker coloured medal. A couple of days ago I added one of the darker coloured medals to my collection and when comparing the two medals it became obvious that they were not produced using the same dies. The first thing to catch my eye was the different attachment point for the suspension ring. They are quite different in design. My first though was that there were two different manufacturers of these medals. Or perhaps one manufacturer with two sets of dies. Can any one shed some light on the number of manufacturers/ dies etc. and time period for each medal? Regards, Gordon
  3. This soldier is holding the leather flare cartridge holder. Regards, Gordon
  4. peron, Perhaps if you contact this veterans organization they might be able to help you. Regards, Gordon https://www.awardmedals.com/normandy-campaign-medal
  5. John, I believe that there are no more notifications being sent. When you log on you are informed of posts made on threads that you are following. Regards, Gordon
  6. LFI, Please try this forum. Regards, Gordon Germany: Third Reich: Uniforms, Headwear, Insignia & Equipment
  7. LFI, Still no pictures. Also, this is a first war forum and to identify what sounds like a WWII artifact you should post these pictures on that forum. Regards, Gordon
  8. Alan329, Always difficult to comment on items in a picture. But I will make one anyway. One of the horizontal arms of the frame of the cross on the right, as viewed by me, seems to be shorter than the other three. Or is that just the photograph? Regards, Gordon
  9. Alex K, Nice awards. Thanks for showing us pictures of them. Regards, Gordon
  10. Brig, I would suggest that you contact the owner of this site and ask if he recognizes your badge. Looks Austrian to me. Regards, Gordon https://polizeiabzeichen.jimdo.com/
  11. Brig, Now what would a member of the HJ be doing wearing a Levente medal? Wonders never cease. Thanks for posting the picture. Regards, Gordon
  12. cvma1990, I posted your pictures on the Wehrmacht Awards Forum and here is the answer from Wim Saris a well know expert in the area of the TR. Regards, Gordon Sydney is correct. Standarte 1 was under the DE "Ostfriesland and was part for brigade 63 (Oldenburg-Ostfriesland). It first had its headquarters at Aurich (1935/1936), then Emden (1937) and later, during the war, in Aurich again. The traditions-patches were for Standarte 2 (1937), which also was at Nordsee and located at Emden. Before Emden the headquarters were at Meppen (Ems). It is obvious the flag moved around a bit. It is practically sure this flag was in the earliest days the first flag granted to Standarte 1 (Sturm 1). I have no idea for the two different 31/2 patches. The one does not have the correct form of numbers, maybe they had to change it into the proper numbers.
  13. Gentlemen, I've been researching Leutnant Ernst Hess. Each place I find his wards listed it says 1914 EKII, 1914 EKI and Royal House Order of Hohenzollern First Class. It doesn't mention with or without swords but I imagine it would be with swords. I can not find much information about this man prior to the start of WWI except that he was in the Flight Troops before the war started. Any information that you can provide for the person would be greatly appreciated. Regards, Gordon
