  1. Luftwaffe Formal DKiG citation to a Stuka rear gunner (StG 77) who also won the Ehrenpokal.
  2. All, this should be the "Seglerschaft der Luftwaffe im Marine-Regatta-Verein", it's listed in Hüskens book as number 8724, but it's not illustrated, Would anybody be able to confirm this? Don? /Lars
  3. Hi all, whilst looking for something completely different, I came across these interesting images so post just for interest, the caption reads "German helmets from the Victory Liberty Loan parade, New York City, 1919" and talking of "Ground dug relics complete with bullet hole", where do you want your bullet hole? regards Alex K
  4. 5th Don Cossack Crosses in stamped aluminium have been around for decades. They appear in the old 1960s-70s books by Klietmann, Littlejohn, Angolia, etc. They also appear in umpteen auction catalogues, often involving the top end auctioneers. Perceived wisdom is that originals had steel pins, die flaws around the '5' and non-curly '9's, while TLO 1960s fakes had brass pins, no die flaws and curly '9's. My question is ............................ are ANY of these proven originals? Or are ALL of them post-war fantasy pieces ?? Or could they all be originals ?? No period photos of these crosses being worn have ever come to light. It seems very strange to me that all of them, allegedly original or otherwise, have been stamped from pebbled aluminium sheeting. This is unique in the area of Third Reich awards, whether official or not. As for the quality, the painted finish on all of these things is very much on a par with the painted finish on original Turkish War Medals. The photo below shows a montage of the various aluminium types. I have excluded all the enamel versions, which are actually of much inferior quality to the aluminium ones. I've also attached a photo of a Don Cossack wearing a large white regimental cross .................. obviously not the same type. Anyone have independent thoughts on these ??
  5. Dear gentlemen, I'm not sure whether this thread is correct one to post this photo to but I'm a bit confused searching for the appropriate one... Here's a fragment of a studio photo showing a Russian emigre who fled Bolshevist Russia after 1917 revolution and joined some overseas colonial army. His last rank with the Russian Imperial army was Sergeant Major (Feldwebel). Is it possible to say anyhting about the uniform he wears, rank and decorations he sports? PLease note white rectangular stripe worn on the left sleeve. I've been told once that he served with a Syrain Infantry batallion from Levant special forces troops, but I'm not sure whether that guess is correct.
  6. Can someone please help me identify the history of my two zulu spears please!!!!email is deanespach@yahoo.com
  7. Greetings, I was curious and unsuccessful in my research. I am trying to find out what the most successful (highest total of downed enemy aircraft) for a Allied BOMBER? We all know the fighter counts and such, I was curious about the men in the bombers and their successes. I look forward to your responses. Regards, Justin
  8. Here is a fine example of not every assault day being a close combat day, and not every close combat day being an assault day.... Ja's on the left are close combat days, Ja's on the right, assault days...
  9. Guys, This should be quite unusual as most probably went in the bin? It is about A3 size.
  10. Start of with an unusual one.... Festungs Infanterie Bataillon 1409 , formed in August of 1944 and fought in Holland... dounle signed because they had no stamp...
  11. A scarce one as it is not for the westwall, but the end of war period in the east, and to a woman...
  12. I have a handful of German photos brought back by a US soldier but most don't have any labels on the back however this one is a little different. It's an interesting photo of a ceremony of some sorts and has pencil writing on the back. My problem now though is I can't read the handwriting at all. Is anyone able to understand what is written? Thanks a lot, Mike
  13. Gentleman, today I've recieved this beautiful medal - I think given to remember the capture of the fortress of lille. I don't know much more than the info given by the medal itself, but I hope one of you would have some more info about it, e.g. how many were made or for what special reason except the capture itself or anything else... regards westfale
  14. Guys, I have something similar and it is always a talking point but I got this at the weekend for peanuts so here it is! Any thoughts? A couple more pics!!!
  15. HI anyone can explain what is logo mean and what is meant by number 24 on the middle !!! this logo remain at Aden until now beside mountain this mountain used as British military base or weapon storage on the past thanks in advance
  16. Hi Guys, I am thinking of purchasing this Hohenzollern Goldene Ehrenmedaille mit Schwertern. Does anyone know what would cause the inconsistency in finish from front to back? From the comparisons I have been able to make this piece seems good. What does everyone think? All comments gratefully appreciated
  17. Please post here miniatures of this beautiful and interesting order. Let this unbelivable diplomatic miniature set will be the first one
  18. Hi, I seem to remember some time ago reading that war time wound badges were made of steel and that due to material shortages it is generally accepted that brass based badges are post 1918? Is this accepted fact or was it just a theory? Thanks Chris
  19. Oh, We Weren't? Sorry. But, as long as you're here; Has anybody ever her of "Her Majesty's Convict Department"? Among my smattering of HMP insignia is a No 1 Dress belt buckle. It's quite heavy, non magnetic, and of a suspicious yellow color that resembles brand-new brass. In fact, it appears way too new. No honest wear anyplace. It's kind of cool, but I fear it's as phony as a three dollar bill. It came to me about thirty years ago from a collector in England who made no claims whatever about its authenticity. It's well made and begs the question: why would anyone take the trouble to counterfeit something that doesn't exist? Any opinions would be welcome. Thanks, Mike.
  20. Hello readers. On September 28, 1958 Capitaine Xavier de Cacqueray-Valmenier died of wounds following a night time attack on a farm held by the enemy in the area of Constantine, Algeria.He was commanding a troop of the 4. Chasseurs at the time of his death at the age of thirty. His mother was able to attend his services but his father was prevented because of active duty as a Brig.General some place else in Algeria. Capitaine de Cacqueray had served in the 1.REC ( 1.Foreign Cavalry Regiment) in Vietnam from 1952 to 1955 as Lt. and Executive Officer of the 5.Compagnie Portee and then commander of mounted elements of the 18.Escadron. At the age of sixteen the later officer was already engaged as an active participant of the resistance movement in France and was decorated later with the croix de guerre. For distinguished actions in Vietnam he was decorated with the croix de guerre on three occasions and was made a chevalier de la Legion d'Honneur. Following his death Capitaine de Cacqueray was elevated to the rank of officer of the Legion d'Honneur and the receipt of the croix de Valeur Militaire at army level ( ordre de l'Armee). His remains today rest in the family mausoleum. This writer served under the orders of this officer during his two tours of duty in Vietnam and retains a vivid memory of a gallant officer and had the pleasure to learn that the 2012 graduating class of the French Army Officers School St.Cyr elected to be named after him. It was followed by the invitation of the family and the graduating class to attend a day of remembrance of this officer at the Ecole Militaire in Paris in 2011 which turned out to be a memorable day. Bernhard H. Holst formerly with the 1.REC 1951 - 1953 and again 1954 - 1956 in Vietnam
  21. I was lucky enough to pick up this group to an officer who served a short while with Ernst Jünger and apparently has 2 mentions of him in the 1934 edition of Jüngers book.... It was to Leutnant Fritz Haverkamp.
  22. All, I have purchased, from a reliable veteran, a Nazi armband of some sort. It is constructed three parts; swatsika, white disk, and armband. What, I suppose, separates this from your garden variety armband is a stamp on the disk. It's under the swatsika so you can't read it all but it has a light house in the middle of it. I hope you can see the stamp on the image I'm uploading. Regards, Wiley Winter Memphis
