  1. I assume this falls under Police? It has a "inner" hat, which I think is more for protecting your head against bumps when crawling around looking for hidden illegals... a pretty good invention... we have all painfully hit our heads at some stage....
  2. Hi, I dont know if this is the right place to post this but... Does anyone know where I can find German Radio Programs, not the the propaganda,but day to day Raido. Thank you
  3. Posted this medal for interest as it is not a general army issue one. The surround, around the monument (in case it does not come out on the photo) shows ' 1813 + 2. HANNOV. INFTR.REGMT. No 77 + 1913' at the bottom '26.MARZ'
  4. This is a pretty rare bird indeed.... sorry for the spoilers but I am going to move it and dont want to spoil it for the next guy....
  5. The Bamberger Reiter (Bamberg Horseman) is a beautiful stone realistic life size sculpture from the first half of the 13th century, in the cathedral of Bamberg (Germany). Throughout times there has been much speculation about his identy. The characteristic head of the statue was depicted on the 1920 German banknote of 100 Reichsmark, and it became an icon of the Aryan man. Never the less, the Bamberger Reiter was also shown on the German 2 Euro stamp of 2003. To the German people in 1920, 100 Mark was a lot of money and a 100 Mark bill was the backbone of financial traffic. So to my opinion the well known face of the Bamberg Reiter was also an encouragement to the German people, after a bloody war and a humiliating peace. But it also turned out to be the up step to an inflation without precedent! Ever since I visited Bamberg Cathedral first (1972) I have been impressed by the cool distant dignity of this noble horseman and the realistic features of his horse, and in many ways this sculpture represents the rich history of Germany. Next photos are from my collection.
  6. Hi there, from a man who died in 1903 there is only one of twelve awards left. For five of six Prussian and Wuerttemberg meanwhile we found out that the regulations said that the award has to be returned. The man also got the Dutch Order of Lion. Does anybody know if there was a obligation of return for this order? Thanks. Michael
  7. Guys, I think these guys must have had some sort of training day? Looks like the 'team medic' has been nominated as well? Jock
  8. Guys, These are from today, nothing fancy but the HJ toy making guide is a first for me, Lots of military toys to make like cannon searchlights etc. Jock
  9. Friedrich („Fritz“) Hermann was born on 17 march 1868 in Lauenburg/Pomerania. From 1883 to 1899 he served in the Navy and left it as Deckoffizier (Torpeder). During the Boxer Rebellion he went to China where he became a civil servant („Marine-, Kasernen- und Lazarett-Oberinspektor, Kontrollführender Beamter und Vorstand der Kaiserlichen Garnisonsverwaltung Kiautschau“). He married (1900) and fathered three children. In 1914 he was taken prisoner and spent the next 6 years in Kurume (Japan). Back in Germany he worked as a customs officer as which he retired in 1933. On his medal bar we see: Prussia, Rettungsmedaille am Band Prussia, Eisernes Kreuz 2. Klasse 1914 Weimar Republik, Ehrenkreuz für Frontkämpfer Prussia, Dienstauszeichnungskreuz der Offiziere German Empire, China-Denkmünze für Nichtkämpfer 1901 Prussia, Zentenarmedaille (1897) Russian Empie, St-Stanislaus-Order, 3rd class Among Hermann's distinction are quite some interesting ones. He received both his iron cross (1920) and his 25 years cross (1922) at very late point in time due to being a POW before. In addition, we are well informed why he received his live saving medal. Last but not least he must be one of only few Germans to receive a Russian award in connection to the Russo-Japanese War.
  10. Hi all, I received this one recently. Unfortunately only the second row of this group... Does anyone what the last ribbon is?
  11. Guys, This is obviously ok but my library has let me down, it reminds me of the British bofors 40mm AA Gun cartrige? Did the Germans capture them in quantity enough to be used perhaps at Dunkirk? If so we did not carry out our distruction of equipment drills correctly. I remember reading the Gun Drill book as a kid thinking I would like to give it a go, load a reversed shell unfused and fire on charge super by lanyard that would be fun. Still J (Sidi Rezegh) Battery managed something similar in BATUS around 1994/5 if my memory serves me well. The gun bunnies blew up a 'nasty' AS90. Luckily now serious injury, I digress, sorry! Jock
  12. I know it is Bulgarian, but probably this is the place to find out an answer. I believe the badge is German made, so can you tell which maker, by the features of the back side? Marked just with a 935 hallmark. It is silver, the brown stains on some leaves are dirt.
  13. Guys, This one is a bit the worse for wear but at a whole €8 it had to be done. As usual no markings to be found. Jock
  14. Looking for someone to help identify this silver medal recently purchased for a couple of quid. Hopefully someone will enlighten me. The reverse is blank.
  15. Hello Gents, a few years ago I got this object despite all the care taken I couldn´t find out what it is. Every help appreciated.
  16. Good evening Gentlemen, As for many unofficial commemorative crosses issued during the Weimar Republik (1919-1934), the so-called "Regiments-Erinnerungskreuz" can be found either with or without swords. One would usually think that the cross without the swords would normally be attributed to non-combattant troops (medical staff, chaplains, etc.)... BUT... since I bought the "Katalog der Auszeichnungen des Deutsches Reiches 1871-1945", 3rd completed edition 2012, published by Hüsken, my certainties were slightly shaken. Pages 125-126, under "Regiments-Erinnerungskreuz", number 02.08.55/5 reads as follows: "ohne Schwerter für Kriegsgefangene", i.e.: (cross) without swords for prisoners of war...! What about the non-combattants? There is NO mention of them whatsoever. Hüsken also mentions (see number 02.08.55/2) a "Treu der Division" cross. I know that division unit bars do exist, but I have never seen any cross with "Treu der Division" inlay so far. Could anyone confirm that Hüsken is right (or wrong), that he did not "forget" the non-combattants, or does anyone of you have a plausible explanation about all that ? Thank you in advance for your expertise! Jean-Sam.
  17. Guys, Got this curious little bugger today, i have pictured it next to normal tin (M31) to give a sense of size. It is marked on the bottom JAPY inside a diamond (see pic not too clear). I thought possibly for kids camping or the likes? I think it is too small for an adults lunch box type of thing? It appears to have some age to it. It is well made soprobably from a peace time market? Who knows? Jock
  18. I have never seen anything like this and thought someone else might like to see it and tell me what it is? thanks,Ray
  19. Hi , I am researching an officer of the 12th Lancers a Major Thomas Reginald Badger OBE . The last piece of information I have of him is in the London gazette saying he had been made a "Commandeure ordre L'etoile noire " or the order of the black star in 1920. My question is why would a British officer be awarded a french decoration and I also believe this award was somehow linked to African service and the king of Dahomey . Could someone please explain how this could have came about ? and would anyone have any information on the above officer . Regards
  20. Hello, I am having difficulty deciphering the awards being shown on my Bavarian rank-list of 1914. On page 11 there are two symbols for the 4th class of the Military Merit Order - but what does the difference between the symbols signify? An example on page 113 is a Hptm Rudolf Erhard, who has been awarded both decorations. I believe the second symbol is the Military Merit Order 4th Class - but what is the first one? Thanks, and please excuse my ignorance. Matt.
  21. Very recently I acquired a Soldbuch (as well as some photos and a Kriegstagbuch for a period when one of his ships was sunk) for a Kriegsmarine officer who ended up commanding destroyers from early 1943 to wars end, having served on Scharnhorst from at least 1938 to 1941. It is such a nice set and the research potential is huge and after doing some looking, it turns out that Trumpeter actually do models of all 3 of the destroyers he commanded in 1:350 & 1:700 scale and I have been toying with the idea of commissioning a build of one of the models. I'm not the greatest model builder in the world and haven't done any since I was around 14 plus I see the examples by others with the weathering and seascapes and know full well that it would be beyond me. But if I was to commission such a build what would I be responsible for providing? Obviously one of the model kits but would I also be responsible for finding out what the camouflage scheme was like for the period the build would reflect in case the one in the instructions/guide was wrong?
  22. I was given a truncheon as a gift a few years ago and was told that I was victorian BUT I don't think so (just a hunch)! It is very battered (a dog had it in his mouth) and has no markings on and it sinks in water. It is 13 1/2 inches long. I have attached some photos. Can anyone date it or knows anything about the type?? http://gmic.co.uk/uploads/monthly_08_2014/post-17014-0-04004600-1406969241.jpghttp://gmic.co.uk/uploads/monthly_08_2014/post-17014-0-29517200-1406969265.jpghttp://gmic.co.uk/uploads/monthly_08_2014/post-17014-0-87212000-1406969314.jpg
  23. I dont know why I bought this, just found it pretty cool... a 100th Year anniversary coin for the I.R. 87... just need the fitting Picklhaube...
