Recommended Posts

Hello Gents,


today I want to show you a present that Oberbootsmannsmaat Bernhard Steinmann


from Luftschiff L4 got for his " successful " paticipation in bombing Kings Lynn


on January 19th 1915.


It is a cigar - case stamped with Kings Lynn and 19.1.1915 plus mounted


Iron Cross mini from 1914.

Thanks for the link Paul, very much appreciated



That's a nice historical item.  How did you know it belonged to Steinmann?  Is there additional documentation or did you get it direct from the family?


I got the whole estate at the intercession of a friend from the granddaughter. It contains the medal bar,


award documents, life career written by the daughter and few fotos.


Kind regards
