  1. Hello all, I have been always very interesting in the Wehrmacht units insignia's, and even more in Kriegsmarine. I wrote this for myself a while ago and would like to share with you. Please share your own pieces and knowledge with us to complete or correct it. I hope you enjoy with it. File upgraded in May 2018 with some new information Kriegsmarine Feldgrau Shoulder Straps 2018.pdf

    Insignia of the Marineküstenpolizei

    Finally I have closed my MKP display.
  3. Hello, I would like to open a thread to show period pictures, or original jackets and tunics, from Kriegsmarine men wearing any kind of cufftitle, what is very unusual. To start one of the rarest, KURLAND.
  4. Hello, I'm very interesting in all the auxiliar services of the Kriegsmarine, as the Marine helferinen, these ladies held a very important job during the war and are often forgotten by the collectors. Please show here your KM female pieces or pictures. Some day I would like to have a complete Marinehelpherinnen uniform, but is not easy. I have this set from a woman, personal-ausweis with picture, ID tag, ... a rare cufftitle in green. I also have two nice caps.

  6. Hello all, we want to present you our first title, due for release at November 2018, available in English and Spanish. SPANISH BLUE DIVISION COMMEMORATIVE MEDALS by Angel González Pinilla and Antonio Barrera Govantes The book is in full color in the format of 6.7" x 9.5" (17 x 24 cm), hardback with dust jackets, around 200 pages and more than 300 high resolution photos. This book is the first one studying in detail the commemorative medals created by both Germans and Spaniards in recognition of the important contribution to the German war effort on the Eastern Front of the Spanish volunteers, which was quite disproportionate in relation to its size. The first part will guide the reader into the historical context in which these medals were conceived, followed in detail by the regulations and decrees that originated them, their design, their different manufacturers and identifiable features, their concession documents and their distribution.

    Hi André, nice to see you here again. Probably you are right about the first specialist insignia, only one side of the chevron is visible, but for sure looks like that, good eye.
