    1. Sir, Thank you for your reply, i have no other information at present will try to find more information . Regards David

    3. Hello All, Just thought you may like to see these, the latest out of an old box. David
    4. Hello Brian, It has been a pleasure to exchange views with you and i am glad your at ease, I know the story to be true but i cannot prove it so i hope at least it has been worth members reading. I have found members on this forum most helpful in an earlier post a member was able to identify another cross i had from the same box which turned out to be worth exactly what they valued it at, again it was of no interest to me but was bought by a very nice chap called Mr Stephen Wheeler i believe a respected dealer. I will post the iron cross for sale and see how things go after all if it does not sell it can live in the box it has spent nearly all it's life in, my next post will be a ww2 ambulance drivers first aid kit complete in it's bag and his tin helmet. All the very best to you David
    5. Good Morning Brian, Thank you for your reply, as you willl know the RWF were present at the football match and my g/grandfather was an honourable honest chap but i do understand your point of view. The cross as had a varied life living in everything from shed's to loft's and even my grandma's bunker in the garden during ww2, the story was posted purely for interest and in no way to enhance the value of the cross. As you will see by my earlier reply to the valuation i would be more than happy with £40/50 as it would probably buy me a gsm re/ra, the ww2 photo was amoung others in the same box but that's all i can say. My family have a serving tradition as far back as waterloo and although we may not have reached great hieghts in rank i am very proud of them all, even to date my youngest is serving RAF so we have served Queen/King/Queen. I am not offended in anyway at all the members here have been most helpfull to me i have a number of box's to yet open and hope i may be able to call on your help in the future. Regards David
