This is the Wifes Grandfathers Destroyer doc, for Narvik

He recieved 3 award badges, the unnamed ones here... and later bought a Schwerin one...

Hi, As he was one of the first guys issued it, i always think it may be the one that was the first award type, but that is of course maybe a bit microcosmic...

Hello folks,

Great badges and the destroyer happens to be one of my favorites. Here is my example by Schwerin Berlin. If I may say it is one of the best gold examples I have seen. This is one badge I would probably never sell.

I always thought that the early Tombac GWL Detroyer Badge was one of the nicest badges ever made, so when I had a chance to pick up another at a show this weekend I couldn't pass it up. Unfortunately, the swastika has been filed down but it's still a beautiful badge and will make a nice companion to my other Tombac GWL.

Thanks Martin. The photos are kind of dark and don't do the badges justice. I was really happy with it, all things considered. Don't find many original badges around here these days, just lots of repros being sold as originals and priced as if they were originals.

    • 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.
