    My best 2017 purchase is pretty small, but nevertheless very special for me. This "SS" Ribbon bar, possibly LAH, assembled by Godet, Berlin:

    Ribbon Bars- opinions sought

    Indeed, the last ribbon bar is a bad one. Best Regards, Nicolas
  4. Since I started collecting and saw the first Ribbon/Medalbar from the maker "Gebrüder Godet & Co., Berlin", I knew it was love at first sight. Unfortunately it was not possible for me to acquire a Godet bar yet. Feel free to post all your Godet medal and ribbonbars. It may will not be the most informative thread on this forum, but definitely one of the most beautiful.

    That would be very sad. I wrote him a few months ago, but never recieved a reply.

  7. Thank you Bart! I found the Volksbund Entry of Kleist myself, but Kevin (hucks216) helped me with the details of his death, as he found an entry in the Kracker Luftwaffe Archive. An excellent website, which I can only recommend! Best Regards, Nicolas
  8. Good Evening, Today I the postman brought me this pretty document. The "Medaille zur Erinnerung an den 1.10.1938" was awarded to Unteroffizier Ernst Kleist of Kampfgeschwader 26. Kleist was born on 02.03.1913 in Vettenbüttel, Schleswig-Holstein. His last rank would be Feldwebel in 1942. Feldwebel Kleist died on 08.12.1942 in Pitomnik, Stalingrad, where his Ju 52 of the San.Flugbereitschaft 3 was shot down by Russian Fighters. Ernst Kleist was the Mechanic on Board. The complete crew was KIA. Kleist was only 29 years old. This document was signed by later Oberst Joachim von Busse, who was an WW1 Flying Ace with 11 Victories. In 1945 Joachim von Busse was commander of the Insterburg airfield in East Prussia. He committed suicide after his men had demolished all installations on the site. Thanks Kevin for more Info on Kleist! All the Best, Nicolas
  9. Thank you Kevin ! I am afraid, I do not have anything else, but the book with the dedication is called "Volk ohne Raum" from Hans Grimm. A very famous and common book. Over 1300 Pages. Quite a tome
  10. Hello there, I recently got this pretty dedication to Oberwachtmeister Jean Heinrich Möller. It was signed by later Oberstleutnant Eberhard Heinrici, who was Ia of the 69.Infanterie-Division from September 1943-November 1944 Heinrici was promoted to Generalmajor in the Bundeswehr on 04.11.1964. Enclosed is a picture of the barracks of Hofgeismar. Best Regards, Nicolas
