  1. peron, Perhaps if you contact this veterans organization they might be able to help you. Regards, Gordon https://www.awardmedals.com/normandy-campaign-medal
  2. 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
  3. LFI, Please try this forum. Regards, Gordon Germany: Third Reich: Uniforms, Headwear, Insignia & Equipment
  4. 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
  5. 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
  6. Alex K, Nice awards. Thanks for showing us pictures of them. Regards, Gordon
  7. 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/
  8. 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
  9. 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.
  10. 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
  11. I agree. This seller has always been good to deal with for me. Regards, Gordon
  12. Uwe, Thanks for your post. Interesting information. Regards, Gordon
  13. Paul, Nice group of artifacts to go with the printed commendation. In particular the named medal. I'm Jealous! Regards, Gordon
  14. Earrings for sure. Lots of more common pierced earrings like this on the web for sale. regards, Gordon
