  1. Hi all, First all, let me say that I had to "borrow" a couple of pics from Grenzer.com, an excellent site on the Grenztruppen der DDR, the DDR border and just about anything you'd want to know about same. First off, here's what we're looking at... I believe these are 2nd generation DDR border post signs: Now I post these here because several months ago I was lucky enough to get ahold of an excellent copy of one of these signs:
  2. Verdienstmedaille der Seeverkehrswirtschaft Instituted: 1965. Awarded: To recognize the efforts of civilian sailors in transportation on the open seas, in 3 classes (Gold, Silver and Bronze). This is the Silver Medal:
  3. I found this great video with great footage of a May Day parade paired up with the National Anthem!! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-j1GsAIwO8E
  4. Guys, Not really my bag but it was a swap for a Luftschutz Gladiator so I think that was ok as the condition is fair and with the box? It is a nice thing in its own right. Which arm would this be for? Cheers
  5. Here the only DDR Ribbon Bar i keept in my collection. Its a nice Cloth one. From left to right: Verdienstmedaille der Deutschen Demokratischen Republik / Verdienstmedaille der Nationalen Volksarmee / Medaille für ausgezeichnete Leistungen 1953 (5 Jahr Plan) / Medaille für ausgezeichnete Leistungen 1960 (7 Jahr Plan)
  6. This is an Award my Grandpa gets as retirement Award. He was a Radiatoren-Fräser (Radiator Cutter) in the VEB Harzer-Werke. Its the only one i ever saw. He pre war he was a Polsterer und Dekorateur (Upholsterer and decorator) - during the war he was a high decorated Feldwebel - in 1950 he come home from his captivity in russia. He startet a new life with his wife. He didnt like the GDR - after the fall of the Wall he putt all hisstuff away. I remember as kid i loved this Radiator - it always stand in his cabinet. It was the only piece the GDR he kept visible. He always talked about his time during the war. How he won his Close Combat Clasp in Silver and his iron crosses. So when i look as this piece... i can nearly feel that he were still alive... good childhood memories. My Grandma forbid him always to told me his war storys... man i realy mis him... sorry for went a little off topic... Stefan
  7. Hello all, here my Grandpas Aktivist Badges with Dokuments. Nothing Special First the Aktivist des Fünfjahrplanes Aktivist des Siebenjahrplanes
  8. I have long been interested in the role of this obscure formation. It is my understanding that they were niether considered to be military nor police. Any clarification on their exact role will be greatly appreciated. The Wasserwirtschaft uniform is the light blue one on the Right. I am sorry for the crappy photo, but it is what I have. If you all want more detailed photos, please let me know. Now lets see what you have!
  9. Gentlemen, An auction that I was recently out bid on contained two interesting items. One appears to be a KGB Anniversary Shield that I am unfamiliar with. All of the Anniversary Shields that I have seen have some colour on the front. This one does not. Can someone identify it for me please? I might get a better answer on another sub forum but because this award seems to have been presented to a member of the MfS I am going to start here. The other unusual item is a removable cuff band for the Wach-Rgt. FD. It has been realized for some time that cuff bands of this type were issued to be worn on specific occasion, parades etc. and then removed after the event. But I had never seen one until the auction. I'll post all of the pictures that were included in the auction for your enjoyment. Regards, Gordon
  10. A small badge issued to members of the FDJ. The numbers at the bottom of the badge stand for the following; Stufe I Für 8.Schuljahr (1967-78) Stufe II Für 9.Schuljahr Stufe III Für 10.Schuljahr Hans Beimler was a German communist, member of the German Communist Party and a deputy in the Reichstag . Hans Beimler fought in the Spanish civil war as political Kommisar (Political Kommisar of all German battalions in the SPANISH CIVIL WAR) of the " Thälmann - Bataillon" the XI. International brigade. He was outside Madrid in 1936.) There are a number of badges awarded in the FDJ bearing Hans Beimler's name The picture is from Lars Krommeriks site and shows a blank document as well. I'll post pictures of the badge from my collection tomorrow. It is too dark to take pictures now. Regards, Gordon
  11. Guys, Not much about today so took this.
  12. Liga für Völkerfreudenschaft (League of Peoples’ Friendship) On June 7, 1952 all existing friendship societies in the GDR were placed under an umbrella organization called the Gesellschaft für Kulturellen Verbindung mit dem Ausland (Society for Cultural Relations with Foreign Countries). Examples of some of the societies that were brought under the Society were “The Society for Soviet-German Friendship”,(founded in 1948) and “The Helmut von Gerlach Society for Cultural, Economic and Political Relations with the new Poland”. From it emerged the League for Peoples' Friendship on December 15, 1961. In 1986 there were 48 Friendship Societies in the League. Its task was to participate in the establishment and maintenance of international relations with the DDR. The League produced a few badges and awards. First up is the membership badge and the League Journal.
  13. Guys, I was told these black ones are East German manufacture, I don't know though for sure? Couple of tin badges too! Jock
  14. Guys, I got this Friday, not my bag but it was cheap and chearful. I remember these things being around in Iraq in 2003, I sold the one I brought back on ebay with a Dragonov scope, wish I had kept them now! Seems to have most of its 'monkeys and parrots' with it? Jock
  15. Guys, A large book with a lot of propagada within. In fact it would not be a surprise if it had NS captions, the whole style harks back to times past in my opinion. Still it has a lot of pics and some are even cool, I like the Sturmgewehr 44 picture. Not my bag but better than destroyed I suppose! Jock
  16. I didn't bid high enough for this document. Someone else had much deeper pockets than I did. But it is worth showing anyway. The auction listing said this was not the original document. Probably one made for display purposes. A medal did not come with the document. Valentina Tereshkova was born to a peasant family in the Yaroslavl' region of the former USSR on March 6, 1937. Yaroslavl is now a part of Russia. Soon after starting work in a textile mill at the age of 18, Valentina joined an amateur parachuting club. She was a hard worker. Later, at the age of 24, she applied to become a cosmonaut. Just earlier that year, 1961, the Soviet space program began to consider sending women into space. The Soviets were looking for another "first" at which to beat the United States. On 16 February 1962, Valentina Tereshkova was selected to join the female cosmonaut corps. Out of more than four hundred applicants, five were selected. She was the only one to go into space. Overseen by the first person in space, Yuri Gagarin, the selection process began mid-1961. Since there weren't many female pilots, women parachutists made an excellent field to choose from. Valentina Tereshkova, three other women parachutists, and a female pilot were selected to train as cosmonauts in 1962. As per the paranoia of the time, the entire program was shrouded in secrecy. When she left for training, Tereshkova reportedly told her mother she was going to a training camp for an elite skydiving team. It wasn't until the flight was announced on the radio that her mother learned the truth. The identities of the other women in the cosmonaut program were not revealed until the late 1980s. Valentina Tereshkova was the only one of the group to go into space. The historic first flight of a female cosmonaut was slated to concur with the second dual flight (a mission on which two craft would be in orbit at the same time, and ground control would maneuver them to within 5 km (3 mi) of each other). Scheduled for June of the following year, the flight left only about 15 months for training. Basic training for the women was very similar to that of the male cosmonauts. It included classroom study, parachute jumps, and time in an aerobatic jet. They were all commissioned as second lieutenants in the Soviet Air Force. At that time, the air force had control over the cosmonaut program.
  17. Just thought that I would share this award document that was awarded in 1983 to a former WW-2 paratrooper who served in 3 FJD. I don't collect DDR paperwork (this came with his WW-2 citations) so have no idea about the criteria for such an award but am assuming it is a merit type award for years served in a certain industry, in this case the energy industry. Just to complete the picture so to speak, can anyone tell me who the signature belongs to please?
  18. Guys, These from the week end, all to the same bloke, something to do with the police? Jock
