Diamonds Maker ?

Lets keep this cordial, and avoid gloating. This has been accepted by everyone up until now... including you ;-)

Korrekt, Chris.

But I don't purport to be an expert on the Knight's Cross.

I posted this as an education for everyone .............. not to gloat.

I have made mistakes in my books in the past and have admitted my errors.

Some others portray themselves as infallible.

That's the issue.

Anyway, another learning point for all concerned.

No names, no pack drill. :)

well Chris and all others.

I found out about these threads very late and didn't understand it

as I am not in to 1939 items at all .

and I was surprised about the conclusions in the beginning as well as the outcome

want to say ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

its not bad at all ,,,,just a learning experience that should tell us

that a firm logo presented not automatically means it was used as stamp .

al do in the list ,,,,,,,obvious silver stamps are pictured ,,, ( that is the confusion part off these lists )

and the details off these logo's indeed matter,,,,,,,,,,,, and can be Moore then just one story .

its to sad do that some colleges using the opportunity to use strong blaming and degrading words

in a case that is just an misjudgement off data

what is a perfectly human and logical thing

as this kind off data is not present on the internet anywhere so ...

it is logic

we all have to learn how careful we have to analyse these things to be sure .

and not getting carry'' d away by enthusiasm to much ,

a valuable lesson fore future presentations

as there is more in the barrel ..and we are all equals in the same boat .

regards kay ,,,( and thanks )

That is the whole thing in a nutshell....

The Logo and the stamp do not need to correspond... and just matching the companys initials to the stamp on a ring can go pretty wrong as well.

This list is a great find, but it is raw data that needs careful interpretation.

    • George Macdonald Fraser describes tea as "The British Army's cure for anything except a stomach wound."   Partial to Earl Grey, meself.  Used to be a tea drinker until Law School, where we had no cafeteria, only vending machines.  Awful as vending machine coffee is, their tea is worse.   Michael
    • Now it looks like I may see my exhibition for the first time in 19 months.   This year is the 65th Anniversary of the Suez Crisis, which culminated in Lester B. Pearson's invention of Peacekeeping, as opposed to Military Observers.   So the Museum will record a video of me discussing this.
    • I've never been able to stick to one theme.   One of my latest is women in the military.  For about ten years from 1952 to 1962, the RCAF actively recruited women to "man" the radar lines protecting against a Soviet attack.   During the Second War, women of the Auxiliary Territorial Service were attached to Royal Artillery Anti-Aircraft Batteries, called Mixed Batteries. They did spotting and tracking, plus communications, while the Gunners loaded and fired.  
    • Two years down the line.   My mother-in-law passed away this summer, as did one of her sisters-in-law.   My exhibition opened, and we had a marvellous speakers' night with four Peacekeeping veterans, including a Meritorious Service Medal winner.  But Covid closed it down in March 2020, and while still there it hasn't reopened.
    • Sounds great other than the Orange & Mango squash only because I prefer cran-pomegranate juice.
