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...

Back of unmarked Destroyer Badge .

Have got the RCC cancer .( Or more correct they believe it`s the RCC ) .

Had to remove the right Kindey .

Was a tumor between 10 and 11 cm inside Kindey .

Was operated in end of July . Was at Hospital 8 days .

Had no syntoms before it was covered under a MR scanning becuase i had some pains no and the i right thigh .

But still have this pain in Thigh if I walks a lot , sems like that had nothing with Kidney to do .

Since Eastern to Operation I had ride 1150 km on Mountbike without any problems .

Very nice example Jan Arne. Looks like a half-hearted attempt has been made to de-nazify the badge at some time ?

Sorry to hear about your health problem. Sounds like you were very lucky they found it when looking for the cause of your thigh pain. I believe renal cell carcinoma is one of the really nasty types so I hope they have removed it in time and nothing has spread.

Hi Jan Arne,

Very nice flat-back Destroyer badge! Pity somebody tried to denazify it.

Hope this unwelcome stowaway you've mentioned is gone for good and you will be able to ride your bike as good as before the surgary! I'll keep my fingers crossed for you.



BTW, I thought I ride my mountain bike quite often but never made 1150 km in a year, you must be kind of iron man!

Nice badges Chris.

The unmarked needle pin badge on the left looks like a nice early Deumer made piece.

Hi Chris,

looking at the award Document dated for Oct 1940,and if the Deumer was the first badge he received then i would definately put Deumer as one of the early producers of the tombak Desroyer along with other makers such as Schwerin,Schickle and Meybauer.

Hello to all,

I bought these two zinc Kriegsmarine badge bargains at the SOS this past weekend: a L/21 U-boat Badge and a JFS Destroyer Badge. I was especially happy to get the L/21 U-boat, as I have never had one of those before. The Destroyer Badge is mostly void of finish, but at least it's original.

Best regards,

    • 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.
