  1. I agree with Chris and '922F', it looks like a fake vehicle recognition flag to me too... Bob
  2. Thanks guys, and sadly Chuck, I didn't manage to get any photos of the Imperial Saxon Awards mate... The Berlin Tech & Science Museum has no problems showing the swastikas on their various WW2 displays. Bob
  3. It all looked completed when we were there, except for a souvenir shop in the main foyer which was closed for some reason. There wasn't much WW2 stuff on display, but they did have a superb Luftwaffe complete flight Schellenbaum.... Bob Some external photos of the museum. I discovered the hard way that using the flash on my camera brought the wrath of a rather fierce looking female security officer... 🙂 Bob Some nice Imperial stuff on display too.... Bob
  4. Some photos that I took during our visit to the Dresden Army Museum in August of 2019, hopefully they are of some interest.... Best wishes Bob
  5. What a lovely set of B. & N., L. Badges John Bob I have a nice B & N L in a case.....
  6. If you are interested in the Wasserschutzpolizei cap Hartje then I really recommend you posting photos of it here for Mister Unland to look at before you purchase, there isn't much in the Polizei line that he doesn't know, and is one of the best guys to get an opinion from, he has years of experience in this field..... -Bob
  7. It was a good basic reference in its time, but far better reference material is available now, I suggest looking at the books by Dietrich Maerz (US) and see the superb selection of great references he is putting out, by some very experienced authors... (B & D Publishing). Regards Bob
  8. This lot belongs to a friend of mine, a nice cased set..... (Andrew B is the owner, and has posted these on the WAF before). Regards Bob

  10. Sadly I am not the owner of any Luftwaffe standards, but I love the magnificent detail and work that goes into the making of these standards, for pure visual impact, they are hard to surpass, and I believe it was a major undertaking just to complete one standard, with a time frame of about 3 months to complete it from start to finish. The following photos are from examples that have been posted on the internet, I don't recall the names of those who posted them now, so I hope if any of the current owners see them, they may like to post more photos of these incredible
  11. 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 !! Thanks again, and best wishes Bob
  12. A couple of Panzer related items that I have, and did a small photo shoot with them a little while back. The wrap around is a 2nd pattern jacket, that was from the 2nd Panzer Regiment, which became part of the 16th Panzer Division, which was basically wiped out at Stalingrad in 1943. The regimental numbers on the shoulder straps have been unpicked but easy to see where they once were. Jacket is from the Erfurt depot and dated 1937. The Oberleutnant RW style tunic was once worn by a member of Panzer-Aufklärungs-Abteilung 9... Hope the photos are presentable.... Che
