Gentlemen, I am trying to piece together all awards and decortions for Josef Carl Peter Jacobs. Of course I have the Flugzeugführerabzeichen, PLM, EK II and I, Hohenzollern with swords and the Ehrenbecher, surely Hindenburg 1934/35. In the topic below there are although many more (O'Connor Sammlung in the Technikmuseum), but were they actually his? I see a wounded badge, Hanseatenkreuz and more ... who can help identify them? Thank you!
