    Hi all I refresh this old thread with, IMO, an interesting group I was able to reunitate partialy : at the begining, they were two stuffs of a Lw Leutnant, bought together in eastern Berlin in 1990. Inside the pocket, the name of the owner : Lt Ernst Peek, dated of october 42. Few years later, I was able to get few informations about him, by the Deusche Dienstelle of Berlin : he was a transport pilot during a big part of the war, and participated to most of the big german air operations, especialy invasion of Crete. I was happy to know all that ! And several years passed then, without novelty... ... Until september 2018, when a german auction catalog offer me the surprise to see many awards documents of this pilot ! I bought them of course. Here are they, offering a special dimension to the whole. Unfortunatly, few documents are missing, in particulary the pilot license...

    Sorry, but it is difficult to be accurate with this small photo, but I do think he had the Ostmedaille.

    I will do it, Rich. Some time ago I bought a book entitled "1000 movies to watch before you die", and "Life of Brian" is included in that list. By the way, and according to my humble opinion, Peter Sellers is the summun of British humor. All the best, Jaime

    Just picked up an example of the issue certificate for the badge, this one to a member of the MFP. Needless to say, much, much harder to find than the actual badge.

    And Canada, which was unique in that as well as the "C" Prefixed versions of the British Badge, also produced its own badges. Note the "Penalty for Mis-Use"
