Is this all to one pilot or singular items in the collection? That 'Erel is top draw, and what looks to be a very nice cased 2nd pattern Assmann PB. As to the Ehrenpokal...out with the camera please....who was the recipient?

"bits and pieces", indeed...you can't get away with that.

Good Morning John

All singular pieces sadly, the Ehrenpokal is to a pilot from KG 26, Uffz Ernst Quaas, awarded 23/1/43,

some photos of it as well as a couple of photos of him....

Very nice, Bob...many thanks for taking the time. Especially like the B&NL pb, very nice condition.

So, had a quick look at some listings and see that Quaas also had the DKiG  when with  5./KG 26 dated 12.7.43.... but then did a general google search and all became clear....quite a service record.

Hi John

This is the information I have so far on Oberfeldwebel Quaas, mainly from a query on the WAF sometime back,-

(I am still unsure of whether he survived the war or not).

Unit: 5. Staffel, II. Gruppe, Kampfgeschwader 26 "Löwen", Luftwaffe
Awarded on: January 23rd, 1943
Details: Published in the Ehrenliste der Deutschen Luftwaffe on February 1st, 1943.

Rank: Unteroffizier
Unit: 5. Staffel, II. Gruppe, Kampfgeschwader 26 "Löwen", Luftwaffe
Awarded on: July 12th, 1943




Best wishes

What a great find John, and yes it certainly looks like an older version of the man. If he stayed with 5./KG 26 then he

probably finished the war in Norway, so would have missed the savage battles of the last months of the war. Nice to get

confirmation that he survived and lived a long life.


Any idea where the photo was taken ?? (other than Germany I presume)  :)


Best wishes

So, from what I can gather form the paper's archives (and a little help from a translation app) Ernst and his wife lived in Saxony until the late 90's when they moved to Berlin (Marchwitzastraße, Marzahn-Hellersdorf - Berlin) to be near their daughter, two grand and two great grandchildren.

    • 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.
