  1. I am well familiar with that ferry crossing although, we (still do on occasion actually) go from Padstow to Rock, and when my Son was younger he always had to be the first off declaring it was Omaha beach at the other end! He loved it! Incidently, I have bumped into Rick Stein on a couple of occasions in Padstow and stopped for a quick chat, he really is a nice bloke. You are welcome to let me know when you next visit Padstow, and I will show you can get a decent pint of the local brown stuff. Regards Richard.
  2. Nice Soldbuch, even with the water/damp damage. It looks like hs EK 2 was awarded while he was serving with 12./Nachtjagdgeschwader 1however, I cannot read the entry above from that scan. Regards Richard.
  3. Those are part of the 'Feifel' air filtration system, fitted to the initial and early production varients. The mid-production machines onwards did not have these fitted. Regards Richard.
  4. Polzeath is indeed a lovely beach and you are quite close to Padstow, the trouble is guaging the time of year! I would recommend visiting St George's Cove for future reference (quite close to Polzeath), definatly a beach which has resisted the masses, even in peak times and the scenery is stunning. Unfortunately, I have to battle with the A30 roadworks every Friday and every Sunday in travelling to Lincolnshire for my work........it has to be finished soon! Regards Richard.
  5. Marcus Which beach in Cornwall saw the 'Sand Sherman' created? I only ask as I live in Cornwall myself. Regards Richard.
  6. Very nice RKT signatures, especially...... Hauptmann Wolfgang Lippert who is a very scarce RKT signature indeed, and this is the first example I seen. Less than 3 months after he signed this document he was killed in Egypt. Excellent signatures and very nice documents! Regards Richard.
  7. As I have posted on WAF; An excellent detailed research piece on this man, packed with insight, detail and information from all available material you have at your disposal. Simply first class research piece. Regards Richard.
  8. Very nice Wehrpass indeed Kevin! I always enjoy seeing these, especially to an eventual Gruppenkommandeur who had amassed 25 missions earlier over England, which is quite something in itself. Nice to see you were able to locate the Vermisstenbildliste images of himself and one other, and of course always nice to see an RK signature in a Wehrpass. Regards Richard.
  9. Richard, I am not suprised that you have received some good offers for this piece, they are extremely sought after, and in that condition quite a find for any Luftwaffe enthusiasts collection. I think you would secure a premium price for that in the open market, or secure a very good trade if that would be your wish. Regards Richard.
  10. From your images, this is a model K33 Winterkopfhauben, manufactured by G.A. Hoffmann of Berlin. These were designed for Luftwaffe aircrews in the early 1930s for use in aircraft which did not require radio communications. While nice enough in their own respective right, these command much less interest and subsequent market value than the later wartime models. Hope this helps. Regards Richard.
  11. These are very nice images indeed. Sharp, clear colour and nice content. I have to ask though, what is the source of these images? Regards Richard.
  12. Kevin I have always been interested in Operation Anthropoid, and those are excellent pictures from the key sites. It is a shame that the underpass and memorial are not looked after better although, to be honest there are several memorials in this country that are not looked after as well as they might be either. There is no doubt that these were very brave men indeed. I hope to visit Prague myself one day and visit the very same sights. I recently watched the 'Anthropoid' film and must admit to being felt a little let down by the portrayal however, I am currently reading 'HHhH' which I am enjoying very much indeed. Regards Richard.
  13. An award to a Flugzeugführer who flew with 3./Storkampfstaffel Luftflotte 4. The signatory is General der Flieger Otto Dessloch (RK, EL). Regards Richard.
  14. These are indeed nice items to further add to the Soldbuch, especially as the promotion document still has the accompanying folder (which is frequently missing) but realism has up and left if anyone thinks that is a realistic price to ask in the hope of a successful sale. 1540 euros is mind boggling in the extreme! Regards Richard.
  15. A Beobachter who flew with Kampfgeschwader 76 and Kampfgeschwader 54. He would eventually earn the DKiG, Ehrenpokal and the Frontflug-Spange für Kampfflieger in Gold mit Anhänger. A Frontflug-Spange für Kampfflieger is clearly evident on his Soldbuch identity photo. Regards Richard.
