He wears his Z?hringer 3bX with Oakleaves, but never got those. :speechless::speechless::speechless:

This is enough for not to like him, not to speak about "some" other "things" ... :rolleyes:


I recently read that Hitler annuled the Iron Cross Grand cross award to G?ring, so it was once awarded and once annuled! :lol:

G?ring's foolishly self-awarded "mE" shows up in early Third Reich photos-- above he is all dolled up as charakterisiert General der Infanterie (31.8.33) having been leap-frogged up from char. Hauptmann aD. :speechless::speechless::speechless: The only other photo I've seen of him in this ridiculous army costume, he was wearing a helmet.

I'm not sure exactly when he stopped wearing it. Makes you wonder WHY, when he was a legitimate WW1 avaiation hero, and was being handed over GrandCross baubles from across the planet, he decided to tart himself up with something so minor.
