  1. Just saw this post. Looks like you were able to solve your question pretty well. Best of luck to you in your PhD project. Best Regards, JustinG
  2. Congratulations on your retirement. It is wonderful when a song can transport us back to a time of our youth. Best Regards, JustinG
  3. Ok guys. Here is an interesting one. A nice seasoned sailor from the Panzerschiff Deutschland. Guessing he has a 4 and a 12 year service medal but I can't figure out what the third one is? I assume it is possibly a foreign decoration, can any of you shed light on it?
  4. Looks like zerstörer Leibrecht Maaß might be also in this photo. Great image
  5. Here's another I did a while back.
  6. Well, I have completed the quest for the "Unterseeboots collection" A version of each ship, flottille, unit, command, tender, begleitschiff. This is my last one. Unterseebootstender Mosel
  7. Greetings and welcome to a great forum. Lots of great information and thanks for posting pictures. I find your photo quite interesting as it appears to be a long service ribbon and next to it having a ribbon that I am unaware of that has the crown on it. Here is a bit of information I found doing a search. this is another wonderful reference site. Schlummer Willi OLt.z.S. Indonesia 12.10.1945 from: https://www.forum-marinearchiv.de/smf/index.php?topic=11403.60 Hope that helps a bit. Best Regards, JustinG
  8. I agree, You can post the name and such on forums like this. Google search will reveal the post and if, the family ever wanted to contact you, to possibly re-acquire the pieces, then they can contact you and you can proceed how you feel you should (return with nothing, or offer to sell back). It is your choice. I haven't found all items but I have tracked down other members to see if I could acquire an award that was attributed to a particular soldier. Many collectors are, happy to re-unite groupings. For the cost of a replacement piece, it is great to do. I wish more members would specifically mention the sailor/soldier information as printed on the awards to see if there are other pieces or groupings that are in collections of others. I love re-uniting groups back together. Enough of my ramblings. It is up to you. I agree with others though; you shouldn't feel guilty or pressured to do anything that you don't feel comfortable doing. Best Regards, JustinG
  9. Greetings, I wanted to share with the forum some works I have done. There have been several artists that have received national attention. I got inspired a couple of years ago and decided to give my hand a chance at creating some images. So here I go.. Luftwaffe with metal eagle Brandenburg gate then and now. Cholm battle Schlachtschiff Gneisenau Munich Photomerge Munich continued Aircrew medal. Thanks for looking. Best Regards, JustinG
  10. An incredible collection of artwork.  Very talented.  Couldn't just comment the same thing on the many works you have done.  Quite the repertoire in your skill.   All the best from Alaska.
