  1. I am wondering how this worked out. The man was a Polish mechanic serving with - apparently - 164 Sqn which were Argentinian volunteers. Did this happen? Were people seconded out like that? All help appreciated. Cheers Larry
  2. ....inspired by the iconic picture of Joachim Peiper on his way to Malmedy December 1944.
  3. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nishan-e-Pakistan Cheers Larry
  4. Short of tracing the members service number and name, I feel it would be hard to place a Regiment to it. I feel this was a "sweetheart' gift....though the inclusion of the service number is unusual..... Cheers Larry
  5. Hello Duncan Welcome to the forum I have never seen one with the swivel mount either. I do believe that the solid suspension is the "official" issue. I would be interested in seeing pictures of those.....the Manipur clasps that is.. Cheers Larry
  6. The front is an enamel "Sweetheart" type version of the RCAC badge used during the Second World War; it was generally used as a cap badge for those soldiers in training not yet assigned to a specific regiment. Cheers Larry
  7. He is wearing what appears to be a Feldmutze which was initially issued in 1943 , and is showing the Heer eagle on his helmet. In 1940 the red, white, and black national colors decal was ordered removed from existing helmets. On August 28th of 1943 an order was issued to no longer apply decals to helmets....... Just my 2¢ Something to look at; the goggles, are they old or new?........ Cheers Larry
  8. Those are awesome. I just love how vivid the colors are and how it all "pops' out. Superb work. Cheers Larry

  10. Hi It's not showing up in my Scott Catalogue of postage stamps...... Still looking Cheers Larry
  11. Hello Welcome to the forum. Could we get large pictures of the individual stamp? Cheers Larry
  12. Unless I am mistaken you have a 4th class and a 3rd class Golden Kite Cheers Larry
  13. As there is no part of the chevroned soutache closing the bottom of the board, his rank is Watchmeister. http://www.uniforminsignia.org/?option=com_insigniasearch&Itemid=53&result=568 Cheers Larry
  14. And his response after seeing the photo's Cheers Larry
  15. Been talking with a very knowledgeable German fella on a modeling forum and his response - before seeing photo's - is below. I hope after he sees the photo's he might have more to say..... Cheers Larry
