  1. The writing on the reverse seems to be from a relative perhaps informing someone of his death. Can somebody give me a translation of the writing? I don't have a good eye for the old Schrift...
  2. Thanks Chris. They did appear too well-fed and "smiley." Lol
  3. Wondering if these are period images or just reenactment. What do you think? --Kevin
  4. Well, the guy in the back is certainly convinced they're going to the pub! 😄
  5. I wish I could determine a date for this photo. It's pasted in an album, so I cannot see the reverse. You can see that Lutze has his arm in a sling. Any ideas?
  6. I like this photo because of the mix of SS, SA, and Political personnel. You can pretty clearly see daggers, cuff titles, and the different caps/kepis in wear. Where do you suppose this interesting mix of men might be headed? --Kevin
  7. I have this ID for a Ministry of Transport official. I mostly collect military items, and was wondering if it is an uncommon/desirable document? From the printing on the first side, it certainly sounds important. 😉 "The one named above exercises his activity on behalf of the Reich Ministry of Transport. He is entitled to do surveys on the commercial transport companies and the transport industry. He is particularly obliged to the conscientious fulfillment of his results on the basis of the decree against bribery and secret betrayal of unauthorized persons."
  8. Hi. I'm back after a long hiatus from collecting and I'm a bit rusty on these things. I'm a little confused by the unit designation on this document. The second Arabic numeral is the issue for me. Can someone help decipher exactly what FJ unit is referenced? Also, what is a good reference source for finding out more about the unit? I don't want to ask folks to do free research for me, so any pointers appreciated. Regards, Kevin
  9. Very nice! I haven't seen the whole boxed sets before. Have you ever lit them up?
  10. Actually, the toilet is a most deadly place. I've heard that billions have been wiped out in them. :rolleyes:
  11. Since you mentioned Transport Korps Speer (TKS), here's a couple more photos.
  12. The sawback versions are less common, but I haven't seen them sell for more than the straight back version. They are both scarce. Frogs are extremely difficult to obtain -- good luck!
  13. My god, I just realized that the pilot in gear looks like Bill Clinton! :speechless1:
  14. Here's a photo I like. Pilot in flight gear w/flare strap on leg. Also 3 RK awards in the picture. I'm afraid I don't recognize them. --Kevin
  15. You guys are GOOD. Rick, I'm sorry but the back only says "Agfa." I doubt that's his name. BTW, does anybody have a photo of this sports badge? Thanks and regards, Kevin
  16. I'm afraid I don't recognize the badge beneath the pilot badge in this photo that I have. Any ideas?
  17. BTW, there's a guy selling a CD of WWII photos. Here's the pic he uses for his ebay ad. I'm beginning to think that maybe this guy was triplets or something! --Kevin
