I dunno Larry... I think it could be the whole "respect thy elders" thing! :lol: LOL

Ralph,

Very nice EM patch. Although I am not experienced enough to make a definative comment on breast eagles, I feel that yours are beautiful originals.

Regards

Paul

Hi Paul,

Thanks for your attempt to enlighten me, but I think we have a small misunderstanding here.

My response was in reference to Laurence's post #47 and that one surely isn't blue, rather the

same as mine i.e. secondary colour red. My real dilemma is to differentiate green from brown.

Laurence, in these days, when Christmas is knocking on the door, brothers shouldn't be separated.

Please pm me your snail-mail address ;)

Admin Leutnant. Now I don't know if it is my scanner that makes it such a light green. So I dont know if this would be Reichsluftaufsichtsdienst (Aircraft control) or "Wehrmachtbeamte, Nautiker"

the reverse. Marked with the number 15, I wonder if there is anyway of tracking down the manufacture's. it seems to have a waxy base to it.

That is a very interesting tab(the light green admin). I will have to hit the Davis Books!

Larry,

You are absolutely correct in your theory of the Official's tabs being light green(Air Traffic Control Service Officials). They are the only officials tabs in that color! These tabs were amoungst the first officials tabs released IAW Order 144 on the 22Apr1935! These are the first I have ever seen! Very nice find!

This information is as per page 121 of "Uniforms and Insignia of the Luftwaffe", Vol1 by Brian Davis

IF you ever find any more...

Merry Christmas

Hi Paul

Thanks for that info, well that turned into a choice score for 27.50 euro! :jumping:

And yeah if I find another...... :cheers:

Diane is awesome. She has helped me out a lot as well... especially in the beginning. I actually just spoke with her on the phone last week about the grey tabs I have posted. That is another topic though.

Those tabs are real beauties and I am sure it will be a while before more surface!

Thank you for keeping an eye out for me.

Regards

Paul

    • Brian, Thanks for initiating this discussion. For me, it’s a combination of the thrill of the chase, the history behind the item, and the aesthetics, although this latter factor may seem a bit strange to some. To illustrate this, the very first thing I collected as a kid in the 1950’s was a Belgian WW1 medal, for service in 1914-18, which is bell shaped, with a very striking profile of a very dignified soldier, wearing an Adrian helmet which bears a laurel wreath. It was the image that
    • Thank you for sharing your story, it was most interesting and greatly appreciated, it makes this blog well worth the time to post. Regards Brian  
    • Hello I started collecting when I found my first Mauser cartridges in a field next to my parents' house next to Armentières. I was eight years old.  Then shrapnel, schrapnell balls, darts... That's how I became a historian. When I was 18, we used to walk through the fields with a metal detector to find our happiness. It was my time in the army as a research-writer in a research centre that made me love the orders of chivalry. I've been collecting them for 24 years now. Christophe
    • Thank you for your most interesting comment. The thrill of the chase didn't interest me in the beginning but over time it started to overshadow the act of simply adding yet another medal or group to the collection. Regards Brian  
    • I know the way I got into collecting is like so many other people; through a sibling. I also know that my love of history is barely unique in a place like this. So I know I have a shared background with many people. A less shared area - perhaps - is that I've always loved the thrill of the chase. When I decide I want, say, a 1914 trio with an original bar, to a cavalry unit, the utter thrill of getting out there and, (a) finding groups that fit the criteria and, (b) comparing them re: ranks, uni
