  1. This is definitely something you don´t see often. Not often. never. Is this medal in your possession?
  2. Most of them. "U" was part of Croatian coat of arms. But not all of them are Ustasha badges. Almost all medals and orders carrie the "U".
  3. Yes, that is the one. I was too lazy to crop the photo. And there is no Ustasha badge onthe photo. Only Croatian legion of the Luftwaffe.
  4. I think it might be this one. The one under Croatian legion badge.
  5. Thank you Peter. At least now I know I am not missing much. I have more than enough experience with old military letters and photos and I know about censorship but whenever I get some new photos I always wonder what secrets might I encounter. When they get translated, usually they are thanking each other for letters they receive and they inform each other about letters they will send. No epiphanies. I scanned photos. Here they are. That is all with captions on their back. I tried to upload more but it seems that I can upload only 8 MB.
  6. Thank you very much. You really helped me a lot. Maybe Bathincourt is Bethencourt -sur-Somme and Walancourt is Mallancourt near Meuse.
  7. I am not familiar with French language at all. Therefore, I am asking for help with some photos I have. I would be very grateful for your help. I´ve bought recently big lot of ww1 photos(cca 100+) and some of them have writings on their back. I will scan them in upcoming days, 2-3 per day and post them here. I hope you will enjoy the photos. First photo is not part of that lot bu I am also interested in writing on the back. Thank you in advance.
  8. Maximilians Military merit medal if I am not mistaken.
  9. Very nice medal bar. I have a question about Mine Rescue Medal. Was it awarded as other rescue medals, for particular lifesaving action or for being part of some rescue organization?
  10. I´ve bought this Sanitätstasche recently. Inside the bag I´ve found name of the owner and Feldpost number. Owner is Dr. Frimmel and Feldpost number is 42595. Sanitätstasche was produced in 1943 and I have found that 42595 was Feldpost number of 2. Sanitats-Kompanie 44. (12.3.1943-7.9.1943). This is where my knowledge stops. Is it possible to find out more about Dr. Frimmel using available info? I bought it in Croatia. I think it was never in collection before. I need to ask the seller additional info about it. Searching through WH Lexikon didn´t help or I am doing something wrong. I presumed that he was stationed somewhere in ex-Yugoslavia but all the units I found that had this 2. Sanitats-Kompanie 44 attached were not in this area.
  11. Can you help me with this one. I am negotiating the price of some KuK stuff with an older man here in Croatia and he offered me this helmet also. I am not familiar with German stuff so I am asking for help here. I tried to find some info about it and Pickelhauben and I found that plate is for IR 91 helmet but the rest is not corresponding with the photos I found on web. He also offered me this cartouche and gorget. I need your help with them also. I need to ask for better photos definitely. Thank you in advance.
  12. What do you think about plaque? There was one for sale, similar to this one, but it was awarded to Rudolf Singule. Sold for 1850 GBP. Have you seen anything similar? Did plaques ever existed or they are modern fantasies? Material looks too shiny and box also looks new. At least skin does. It is not possible to download photos so I am posting a link to Rudolf Singule plaque. It definitely looks better than Weddigen´s. I am not sure is it forbidden to post links. If it is, please delete it or I will do it. https://www.relicmilitaria.com/product/imperial-german-submarine-officers-presentaion-plaque-dated-1915-in-case/#
  13. Hello Bayern. Thank you for your help. Photo is part of the photo lot I got from Czech republic. So, I presume they are not Heimwehr.
  14. Except MG and Bergfuhrer insignia I have never seen anything else worn on the sleeve. It looks like an anchor plus something else. Anybody saw something similar?
