oh yes, there are some news!!!! But because I do not know exactly how much I am allowed to tell (by the police...) I will not say too much................. BUT.........................what I can tell you today is this:

4 of my stolen things were found during a police operation in Hessen, they are in a safe place now in a police office in Germany. Unfortunately I don`t know when I can get them back....can take some years....

One of these is the medal bar of Robert Koehne!!!! One is a medal bar I got from Bob with KO4 + Bulgaria.......and two smaller things

Not much but a little beginning......


thats not all, and that is the not so good news............some more of my stolen things were found as photos in customs papers of Frankfurt/Main Airport..... they are not longer in germany now, gone by plane............... to:

TURKEY !!!!!!

The world is big and the life is long, maybe some day everything will return.............

that`s all for now, wish me luck!!!

Hello Heiko,

I am glad to hear that some of your items have been recovered. I am so sorry for your loss. I'm going to take additional security measures for my collection. I hope that all of your medals and ribbons are safely returned to you.

All the Best,

Hallo Heiko!!!

Turkey... that's quite strange! World is really small.... But why the police they have to keep your found pieces for a couple of years??? As evidence for a future trial? They can just take some pictures, put in writing (report) and send them to you...

Anyway I keep the finger crossed for you!

Viel Gl?ck!

.................just to let you know that I have got back 4 things from the darmstadt police some days ago........ the man that was the main suspect criminal in this case got 8 years !!! Of course not for my "little" robbery but for the bigger things he was involved in like Schloss Hohenschwangau....

After this hard punch loosing most of my collection I stopped collecting medal bars.... the heart was broken and I turned my main focus on photos of colonial soldiers and imperial navy - makes fun too...... so please visit the sales section if you are interested in some goodies

..... the man they have got is just one of some.... he is the one where most of the things were found but he was not the lone gangsta.... there are many more behind him or beside him or over him....who knows..... he said nothing during the trial and he did never say "I was it".... seems to be some kind of mafia.... there is no money to get from him because he owes many people a lot of money right now - no chance...... :(

You are correct, it's never a good idea to post bunch of expensive items on a public forum.

I have not posted all of my stuff, but believe me, I won't do much now.  Also, as I do with my guns/firearms, my collection room will be off limits besides only to a trusted few when they come over and doors shut and locks lock when maintenance people come over.

    • Sounds great other than the Orange & Mango squash only because I prefer cran-pomegranate juice.
    • "(...) disgusting herbal concoction (...)" I took note of this description, to enrich my otherwise limited, English "Wortschatz"...
    • At work the standard indian tea such as PG tips is referred to as chimp tea. This goes back to the days when we had a Spanish girl working for us whose command of the English language was extremely limited. One lunch she said she was going to the shop could she get anything. I asked if she could get a pack of tea bags. She returned with some disgusting herbal concoction. I tried to explain what was required but without success. I then remembered PG tips had a picture of a chimpanzee on the packe
    • When I read Lapsang Souchong i decided to post something about these Tea . Many years ago I dont  know about Lapsang until I read James Michener book Centennial and the description of the savour of the Lapasang as a mix of tar and salt & smoked made me proof . It was exact ! and i liked it since then .
    • I have been known to drink Lapsang Souchong and Tea, Earl Grey, Hot... both "without pollutants". I normally have one mug of coffee in the morning, then spend the rest of the day drinking Orange & Mango squash (by the pint). Then evening comes and it's a pint, followed by red wine with dinner and sometimes a drop of Laphroaig afterwards.
