    Have I ever showed this one? No awards but they would give him a good table in every restaurant anyway 😊

    I know this is an old thread....but hessian covers could also be found on the Brit Home Front during the pre-invasion period to hide the wearers seniority and/or reduce the risk to the wearer of machine gun strafing from planes.....at least, that's what the archives say......I kid you not! ...although, the chances of one of those finding itself across the Atlantic is pretty thin..........they're like hens teeth HERE! 🙂

    Kev, can't find anything about her on the net but she uses both her married name a maden name as a double barrel surname post war. I like the telegram, the welfare bloke if they had them back there must have thrown a track with the prospect of a'wife of' visiting a field hospital, Iexpect they made him send the telegram or perhaps sent it for him. I am sure he did write that he would like her by his side but never dreamed she would try to get there! Rich

    For me it looks ok, nothing fancy, hard to tell if the rim is a bit shallow from the picture? Funny angle? Rich

    Jaime, Thanks for the correction. I took the spelling right out of the Luthardt family album(picture below). Should have done some research first. Much appreciated. Regards, Graham

Klasse mit Schwertern und mit der Krone - Ehrenkreuz für Frontkämpfer - Wehrmacht-Dienstauszeichnung 1. Klasse - Wehrmacht-Dienstauszeichnung 3. Klasse - ??? - ??? Perhaps last two are some of the Bavarian Jubilee Medals. He certainly would have been entitled to the 1911 one.

    Both Eagles now resprayed and mounted on their marble towers. Delighted to have finally finished them and to have given them a new lease of life.

    That’s not to say wearers didn’t benefit from the reduced risk of sparking.....I’ve just not yet seen any marketing stuff extolling the virtues of reduced metal content....the fact is, the Govt restricted all metal helmet sales and something had to fill the gap......

    Thanks for that - the way it is at the moment, it really not doing it justice. I do have original silk ribbons / ribands for all the awards (not the modern horrible ones), I feel guilty about mounting them but I feel I'm disrespecting the importance of the group and the man. I'll probably concede and mount them (eventually) 🤔 Thanks for the input 👍

    An outstanding and rare selection, Graham. The Vic Beds officers enamel H/P is in wonderful condition. And, as we've discussed, some of these plates aren't even in the dedicated museums. Best, Marcus
