  4. Not sure. I don't think it's pre-WW1- nothing in the 1914 Rank List.

  12. Here's one of my favourites from the book......'looks messy (and "wrong") but in the period before 2 black stripes meant you were a top dog the guys at the top wore red helmets with white lettering....blah blah...you know all this anyway (and if you don't, buy the book! 🙂 ) This once-red lid has been over-painted black but the lettering part has been left exposed ...and the underlying red is evident all over the shop. What makes this one doubly special is that beneath the red paint there were once (black?) diamonds which can be seen under the top coats when the helmet is tipped in the light.....what I've never figured out is why black....as we all know they went from red to white (with 2 black bands). Most folk search out the perfect...the un-issued....I seem to be drawn to the messy ones!
  13. Additional pic from Johannes Streich Ritterkreuz award ceremony. Streich would be awarded the Knight’s Cross for the actions of his regiment during latter stages of the Battle of France. The British were trying to evacuate their soldiers from the small community of Veules-les-Roses, just east of Le Havre. Streich’s Panzer-Regiment 15 attempted to enter the town on 11 June but accurate AT fire prevented this. Streich decided on a night attack, and the gamble paid off. By the morning of the 12th Streich’s panzers were firing on the remaining Allied ships in the harbour, and the soldiers that had not been evacuated surrendered. Streich’s regiment claimed to have taken 26,000 English and French prisoners, including the French division commander Général Durant and two brigade commanders.

  14. Another pictures for the Ritterkreuz award ceremony of Karl Jörß
  15. Hi All,this is a solid cast iron item, about 12cm high, 7x7cm base, not big but quite heavy. According to the owner it was probably made in The Royal Prussian Iron Foundry. Apparently an item from a desk of some nazi VIP in occupied Poland.Any ideas what the hell this might be and how much it can be worth?Never seen such a thing made of solid iron....
  16. 75% of stock gone....'just in case anyone is dithering! 🙂
  17. This is harder to tell, given the black and white photo. However, silver would be my guess too, but cannot confirm it unfortunately.
  18. Konteradmiral Hans Mirow - EK 2. Klasse / Spange zum EK 2. Klasse - Ehrenkreuz für Frontkämpfer - Wehrmacht Dienstauszeichnung 1. Klasse - Wehrmacht Dienstauszeichnung 3. Klasse - Medaille zur Erinnerung an den 1. Oktober 1938 Looks like it, 90% certain
  19. Also, what would your guess for the class of his Spanienkreuz ohne Schwerter be? I think it's Silber. See on the photo below. During the Spanish Civil War he served as the First Officer on the Cruiser ‘Leipzig’ (26 Aug 1936-27 Oct 1938).
  20. Konteradmiral Hans Mirow - EK 2. Klasse / Spange zum EK 2. Klasse - Ehrenkreuz für Frontkämpfer - Wehrmacht Dienstauszeichnung 1. Klasse - Wehrmacht Dienstauszeichnung 3. Klasse - Medaille zur Erinnerung an den 1. Oktober 1938 ???
