  1. That is a nice one. Cheers,Martin. I just want to let everyone know that i do not collect anymore..I'm in my 60's and i'm done with buying items. Having said that,my interest in the hobby has not waned and i will continue to comment and contribute when i can. Cheers,Martin.
  2. Interesting. The "Rio Grande" was a blockade runner and the "Bogota" was a supply tanker,both operating in the Far-East. He probably would have been awarded the Blockadebrecher abz for serving on these ships. Many former Thor crewmen made it back to Germany on the blockade runners. Cheers,Martin.
  3. Sorry to hear that. What branch of the KM did he serve in after the Hilfskreuzers ? Cheers,Martin.
  4. Hi Fitzceraldo, I do not have much information on him other than that his name can be seen on the list of officers from my THOR crewlist. His rank was Leutnant zur See,as you mentioned. Interesting to find out how he made it back to Germany after the THOR was destroyed in Yokohama ? Cheers,Martin.
  5. Do you have his name and rank ?? I have a lot of information and photo's from the THOR's second cruise. Cheers,Martin.
  6. Hi Fitzceraldo, nice photo of the MS awards,and welcome to the forum here. Regards,Martin.
  7. Looking at his service record it appears he did not serve on any Hilfskreuzer. Cheers,Martin. http://www.geocities.ws/orion47.geo/WEHRMACHT/KRIEGSMARINE/Vizeadmirals/RIEVE_FRIEDRICH.html
  8. Now that is a nice one Larry. With awards and specialty badges. Great photo. Cheers,Martin.
  9. Here's a little info Larry. Cheers,Martin. http://www.ww2.dk/air/seefl/mausi.html
  10. 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.
  11. No idea on how many postcards were printed Edgar ? This is a real photo PK and it was written by one of the U-9 crewmen and sent to his uncle with reference to the sinking of HMS Hawke. Cheers,Martin.
  12. The crew of the U-9 in a photo postcard dated 1914. I think the tallies read UNTERSEEBOOTS.HALBFLOTTILLE.
  13. I'm not a moderator here,and yes I started this thread years ago,and I titled it "Kriegsmarine" because I did not collect, and knew little about Imperial navy history,where as I was a collector of KM awards and photo's. Yes,we can add pre-Kriesgsmarine tallies to the thread but I think the earlier tallies might benefit more in their own thread in the Imperial forum ?? Now I love to look at photo's and there has been some great stuff posted here over the years. So, I pose this question to the main crontributors to this thread....Should we add the Kaiserliche/Imperial tallies and re-title the thread or ask for a new thread on pre-KM tallies to be added to the Imperial forum ?? I guess i'm good either way. Regards,Martin.
  14. It's a specialized subject Morten that not many can contribute to,i think. As mentioned,there is interest but not a day to day subject. I have very little Narvik related items and what I have has been posted. Regards,Martin.
  15. Great photo's gents !! This is the only one I have. Cheers,Martin.
