  1. Here is a LW General with RK , no name on the back, but I guess it is Paul Conrath ? Or has anyone other suggestions … And the officer on the right looks almost like Adolf Galland Maybe a unknown twin brother? 😆
  2. I wonder about this Photo, on the back it’s written ” 21.III.41 Belica” And what I could find out there was not many LW units in Belica, Bulgaria in March 1941. And as he is holder of the RK could it be Max Ibel , JG 27 in the picture ?
  3. Found this phot of a Bulgarian ? Officer with quite nice collection of awards Christer
  4. Hi , I have the names and dates for all Finnish awarded 1919-1936 ( 1st type) that is 230 names , (Forgot to write that the numbers is for Commander 1st class.) Commander is more often awarded of course) During the same time 477 was awarded to foreigners , so twice as many outside Finland. Will look if I can find something online Here is something about the Order in English https://www.ritarikunnat.fi/images/flipbook/guide/mobile/index.html#p=39 All the best from Sweden Christer
  5. Thanks Andy , That was super interesting , a almost forgotten small unit from the Great War . What I could find out the Gruppe Lindau was a Bavarian unit. maybe I can find something in the Bavarian rank list. Thanks again , now the man in the Bodensee Flotille at least has a thread here to their memory Christer
  6. Just bought a Postcard sent August 1918 , and stamped Deutsche BodenSee Flotille Gruppe Lindau Does anyone know anything of this unit ? Had Germany marine Troops in BodenSee ? Or is it a Marine Air unit ... Christer
  7. A new non combat medal bar , 1870 /1871 Cross + missing the steel 1870 war medal Interesting combo Christer
  8. I have this bar , think its quite unusual with a bow mount for a gentleman ? Could it be for a woman Bavarian nurse for example ??
  9. I saw a Mannerheim Cross for sale from Auono Kuiri at Bukowskis. a 2nd class went for 25 000 Euro ? Do not remember when 2011 The 2nd class awarded to Oiva Rönkä was out for 40 000 Euro ( but i couldn´t be exported out of Finland) And Tiainen says that 220 Mannerheim Crosses 2nd class where made against 8 1st class I think a genuine Mannerheim Cross 1st class should reach about 100 000 Euro probably ? Would love to see pictures of the 1 st class mentioned in this thread Does anyone know how many are known in Finnish Museums ? Christer
  10. Hi again , I War museum the had this one, labelled as a 38 cm rocket launcher from WW 2 . But I haven’t heard of such a Gun ? Could this be a WW1 Minenwerfer ?
  11. What is this ? Could it be a 25 cm Minenwerfer ? It looks big ! Photo taken 1915 christer
  12. Great Collection , the Silver medal for foreigners is really scarce , I haven´t seen one for sale in ten years. In 2006-2008 there was 4 ! of them sold , I was offered one for 2000 $ But I took my money and went on a roadtrip to US instead christer
