I wont be able to show entire groups on these pages until I really get the hang of it, but here are some individual items out of groups that really turn me on.
On the right is part of my favourite Army Grouping (and about the only one I have left). It only goes up to DK but I like it for many reasons. First off, the guy got the DK with his Bronze close cbt clasp. Secondly, he has the life saving medal as well, and that combination is very rare. ´third, the guy was in the 2nd Panzer division from 38-45, and no matter what the SS Buffs say, the 2nd Heeres Pz. Div. got around more than any other in the war.
All his medals were of course Liberated by the brits in the POW camp.
Step 2: Put the jack under the car.
Step 3: Use the wrench to jack the car until the wheel is about three inches off the ground.
Left is the certificate for the lifesaving medal, right is a Annerkennungs Urkunde from Von Brauchitsch.
It is interesting to find a medalbar with seven WW2 medals on it, normally when you have that amount most are WW1.
The Honor Goblet Doc comes from a Fighter pilot group for a guy from JG54.
The German cross is from a pilot in the 26th (torpedo) bomber squadron.
The Pilot observer is unfortunately not part of a group, but as we are talking Luftwaffe I thought I would include it. It belonged to a guy called Von Holleben who was there from the beginning in the creation of the German pathfinder units, he also commanded the pathfinder geschwader (KG100) for some time. Who knows, maybe he even wore this very one when they marked out coventry for the big raid (sorry, morbid thought)
In this area I'll define any specialized vocabulary that it's helpful to know in order to perform the tasks described on this page.
