    After much debating, took advantage of Kai Winklers 30% discount and bought this one.

    Of an estimated total of around 3600 who served on Auxiliary Cruisers, only around 300 were officer ranks, making any documentation to Auxiliary Cruiser officers extremely rare.

    Marineoberstabzarzt Dr J?rgen Harms was the ships doctor for the Hiflskreuzer Thor during her first very successful war cruise lasting 328 days during which she sank 12 enemy ships. Harms is mentioned in several reports, commended for his treatment of wounded recovered from Thor's victims.

    All Harm's awards, EK2, EK1 and Hilfskreuzerabzeichen were earned during his trip on Thor and all can be seen on the Soldbuch photo.

    Harms subsequently served at several shored based naval medical establishments including Marinelazarett Bergen and Marinelazarett Lauenburg.

    The insignia shown with the book are originals, but not Harm's.
