  1. That's a beauty Hubert and indeed it does fit this thread. A very rare badge. Thanks for posting this one. Cheers,Martin.
  2. Indeed Hans. As i mentioned i know of only two others to date. Cheers,Martin.
  3. Thanks for the comments guys. As Hubert mentioned I have pretty much stopped collecting awards now,but I just could not pass this one up,especially for the price it was going for. I also have to extend a big thank you to Norm F for the lead on this one. Cheers,Martin.
  4. Just picked this on up. A zinc award of two piece construction but the globe is adhered to the badge and not riveted. Right now the maker is unknown but certain features of the reverse hardware suggest that this badge may be a product of Wilhelm Deumer ? Anyway,it's the only example we know of to date. Cheers,Martin.
  5. You could get a replacement? Try the Worcestershire Medal Co. Cheers,Martin.
  6. It looks like there was a Mons Bar attached to the ribbon of the Star in the first set you posted Jim. Pity it's missing. Cheers,Martin.
  7. Very nice indeed.Boxed examples are hard to find Cheers,Martin.
  8. Indeed a great find. As posted above I have Kuhn's awards and the "Atlantis" book signed by Rogge. Regards,Martin.
  9. Yes. The Kormoran was equipped with two Ar.196 aircraft. Cheers,Martin.
  10. That is a great photo. I'm Jelous. Regards,Martin.
  11. Hi guys, this was given to my dad but I have a hunch that it is probably not a good one ?? Regards,Martin.
  12. Nice doc's Walle. Still looking for a HK award doc from the Atlantis. The Komet and the Widder too. Cheers,Martin.
  13. Hi Kevin, for the sake of interest,here is an original photo I have of the Tannenfels. It came as part of a grouping I have from a crewman of the HK Stier. The Tannenfels picked up the survivors of the HK Stier after she was sunk on Sept.27 1942 by the US Liberty Ship Stephen Hopkins.With only a few losses the crew of the Stier were safely returned to Bordeaux by Tannenfels. Cheers,Martin.
  14. Another document from the HK Orion,(Schiff Nr.36),again signed by Kurt Weyher.
