That is nice! I wonder if he was on ships or in the Marine Arty in Belgium

Hi Chris,

The photo is a bit of a puzzle. Is he old enough to have earned a WW1 wound badge?

The Coastal Artillery NCO trade badge on his sleeve would suggest he was land based.

I am not an expert on uniforms but did land based Kriegsmarine troops wear that type of uniform?

Cheers,

Larry

Hi Larry,

He's also wearing his ribbon bar with the WW1 EK2 and KVK2 so quite a record there. From the look of him and his wife he could be in his 40's and have been a teenager in WW1 -- maybe a career Navy guy? And he could be wearing his blue uniform since he's stepping out with his wife.

Best regards.

Hi Larry,

I think that all KM personnel were issued with both the blue and grey uniforms,and white?

Here are a couple of images that i have showing the CA award in wear on different uniforms.

Earlier in this thread i have also posted images of "ship" based KM personnel wearing the field-grey uniform.

Regards,Martin.

Hi Martin,

Sorry I didn't see your post before I replied to Norm. Nice photos and additional information regarding the types of uniforms

worn by KM personnel. The Prinz Eugen (Destroyer Badge) photo I posted earlier shows him in KM blue with the DB worn on his jacket.

This photo is from a small Prinz Eugen lot which in some photos shows him wearing the field grey uniform as well. I naturally thought that

seeing he was wearing field grey he must have been transfered to land based duties. Going by yours and Norm's replies this may not be the case.

Cheers,

Larry

Thanks for showing this one.

Regards,Martin.

Very nice to see a mini in wear! Of all the minis that exist, it makes sense that there would be the greatest chance of seeing a Blockade Breaker mini in wear since they were awarded to civilians.

I've often wondered why it's near impossible to find photos of other KM badge minis in wear, and I can only assume it's because in wartime there was virtually no opportunity for a sailor to be off for an extended leave in cvilian clothes to wear such a thing.

Best regards,

Interesting point Norm and i have to admit i am inclined to agree with you.

Besides the mini BB award the only other KM mini's i have seen in wear on civilian clothes are post 1957.

Regards,Martin.

    • 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.
