Hiya,

Prompted by my recent visit to Ypres and the Somme I have added these items to my collection. I would really appreciate it if someone could translate the handwriting, my Fathers Iron Cross?

Stamped WM,I think?

Cheers.

Hello smiler,

Congratulations on your latest additions.

There's something about the EK that just draws you attention.

Good luck with your future collecting, you are now "doomed", but if you going to be "doomed" by any area of collecting this is a good place to be (GMIC). ;)

Regards

Brian

My guess would be WILM. Unfortunately, the makers didn't have us in mind when they stamped their Crosses :(

that's a nice ek2! and the watch fob thing is sorta interesting in the sense that the crown is nearly rubbed out--from someone's thumb? or perhaps it's merely the effects of corrosion
