  1. Yesterday
  2. Generalmajor Dr. Emil Stephan with Romanian Order of the Crown, Commander Cross with Swords
  3. I was pleased to find among the photographs an example of him wearing his 'Schiffstammabteilung 14' Mützenband. Hopefully these might of proved to be of some interest. Regards Richard.
  4. The 'Schiffstammabteilung 14' is for myself a very nice item and luckily just fitted on my scanner enabling myself to make a detailed scan accordingly.
  5. Justin that is a quite simply a stunning collection of Mützenbanden you have assembled. I recently picked up a Luftwaffe document grouping to a Feldwebel who predominantly served as a Bordfunker in Kampfgeschwader 100, Lehrgeschwader 1 and Kampfgeschwader 27 "Boelcke". Eventually awarded the EK 1 and FFS I Gold, he initially served within the Kreigsmarine. Among the documents are some nice clear images of him in Kreigsmarine uniform, his Kreigsmarine Truppenausweis and two Mützenbande, 'Schiffstammabteilung 14' and 'Marinenachrichtenschule Aurich'. Here are the Mützenbande photographed together, the 'Marinenachrichtenschule Aurich' has quite dark and subdued lettering which has unfortunatly made it appear unclear in the image however, the 'Schiffstammabteilung 14' is a very nice piece indeed with very vivid lettering.
  6. Last week
  7. Good one, I saw this one and completely forgot about it.
  8. It was also awarded for the conduct of military operations, being received by many Generals for that reason. It is surprising that he didn't receive it from Hitler. Not sure they were always on the best of terms perhaps.
  9. Unknown Chinese Medal

    I have found out that this is the Taiwan Air Force K' hi Mo Merit Medal.
  10. I have since found out that he was detained for disobeying orders.
  11. Generalmajor Dipl. Ing. Friedrich Kittel - Spange zum EK 2. Klasse - Ostmedaille - Königl. Bayer. Militar-Verdienstorden 4. Klasse mit Schwertern - Ehrenkreuz für Frontkämpfer - Wehrmacht-Dienstauszeichnung 2. Klasse - Wehrmacht-Dienstauszeichnung 4. Klasse - Medaille zur Erinnerung an den 1. Oktober 1938 - Königl. Goldene Bayer. Hochzeits-Jubiläumsmedaille???
  12. Unkown type of breeches

    Guys, I don't think these are German, could be captured so Dutch, Polish etc? Any Thoughts? Rich
  13. Guys, These have been in a barn for a long time, To which orginisation would you put them and what period? Any thoughts? Rich
  14. Hi, I presume with the reference to ISIS that the book is recent? Is he still alive? If he is he should be careful of the publicity as the German prosection service has just lost the last SS man (also the Hamburg/Celle area?) they were prosecuting for war crimes by association. The units record stands for itself but when you look at it I doubt any of them were not keen fighters? I wish him and you? luck with the book. Rich
  15. Military Intelligence lot

    Photos instead of scans as they are longer than A4. Interesting is the hand written notes with sketch and then somehow the finished product, even back then?! Rich
  16. They would send a glass eye to sleep, I tried to read Mein kampf in English and German and in both cases it was time I won't get back!!!!
  17. I can't say I have seen such a letter either. The soldier isn't mentioned in the Volksbund Database.
  18. Bronze SA Sport Badge

    I can't remember where I have put it! When I find it again I post the reverse properly. Rich
