I am interested in U-660 because I have the dagger and 3 medals of the first officer H. Jäger. The U-Boot badge, Minesweeper Bbadeg and EK2 were acquired directly from Jäger's brother. I have also met with the commander of U-660 Götz Baur. He is a very nice man with a interesting life story. So if anyone has anything from U-660 I am interested in seeing it.

Hi Paul,

I hope you find answers to your query. In the meantime would you be willing to show us pictures of the U-boot and minesweeper badges?:rolleyes:

It's always nice to see attributed pieces.

Best regards,

Pic. Jäger is on the right and is wearing the minesweapper badge and Götz Baur is in the back. I believe the officer in the middle is the ship's engineer.

    • Thanks for your reply Patrick, just in case some might not know what the Belgian WW1 Medal you were referencing looks like I have included one here. I understand that the small crown on the ribbon denoted the recipient was a volunteer.  
    • Brian, Thanks for initiating this discussion. For me, it’s a combination of the thrill of the chase, the history behind the item, and the aesthetics, although this latter factor may seem a bit strange to some.

    • Hello I started collecting when I found my first Mauser cartridges in a field next to my parents' house next to Armentières. I was eight years old.  Then shrapnel, schrapnell balls, darts... That's how I became a historian. When I was 18, we used to walk through the fields with a metal detector to find our happiness. It was my time in the army as a research-writer in a research centre that made me love the orders of chivalry. I've been collecting them for 24 years now. Christophe
    • Thank you for your most interesting comment. The thrill of the chase didn't interest me in the beginning but over time it started to overshadow the act of simply adding yet another medal or group to the collection. Regards Brian
