Thanks for the invite Bart!

My name is Bjorn I live in Sweden

I have been collecting since 2005 and still have the same goal, getting one award of each. Most people say its a mistake made by most new collector but I still hope it can be done and I have (hopefully) 50 years of collecting left.

I have some problem sticking strictly to my plan as I also like trophies, helmets and edged weapons....

Thats all folks

Hello Bjorn, That is exactly my goal aswell, trying to collect 1 of each award :thumbsup:

Lars is my name, also member on WAF AND GHW, on waf my user name is Lassi :wacko: and on GHW it is Zufuss/Lars

But for you guys Lars it is :-) It´s my Christian name anyway :thumbsup:

Im 35 years of age, I have been into the hobby and history of world war 2 since around age 18 but always as a kid loved history :thumbup:

I have been collecting one of all :D one of everything German and never been close to any goal :rolleyes: as I like it all but I can´t afford it all.

My main interest is Uniforms and Helmets of the German Army, mainly Luftwaffe and Waffen SS. But Also equipment and special optics like SF.14 bino etc.

When I´m not busy at the house or at work I enjoy my hobbies. 3 Reich items, Fishing, Hunting and I also like my old BMW R65 GS bike ;)

And off course hanging out with my family and friends :thumbup:

All the best

Lars

Received an invite from Bart and thought I would join accordingly.

Nice to see some familiar names on here!

My main collecting interest is now focused on Luftwaffe document groupings, to include all Urkunden, Soldbucher, Wehrpass and Ausweis. Of particular interest are documents containing ink Ritterkreuztrager signatures.

I also pick up Luftwaffe flight related tunics, headgear and aircrew related items from time to time.

Regards Richard.

Hello everyone,

I was invited by Bart while over at the WAF.

I live in the Southern United States. I mainly collect studio wedding portraits but I also collect uniforms, headgear and weapons.

I will be starting my own military career soon with the U.S. Army as an officer. During that time I hope to build my collection and continue to share and talk with my fellow collectors. This is a truly enjoyable hobby and sharing our collections with each other is the critical aspect of keeping it fun and interesting.

I'm really enjoying this new forum as we have so many great members willing to share diverse and excellent pieces from there collections with us.

All the Best,

Bryant

Nice to read about who is behind the Screenames! Isnt it funny how we speak to one another on almost a daily basis, but dont know too much personal info!?

My name is Bill, 27 years old....known as (12thpanzer) at WAF and Bill T at WarRelics. I also help Moderate the photos section at War-Relics forum. I own a Lawn Care (landscaping) company in Virginia, USA. Outside of collecting I enjoy Fishing, hiking w/ my Dog and Fiance, woodworking, and just got into restoring unique items (radio flyer wagons, etc etc).

My main collecting focuses are Panzer related Photos and Award Documents. I am just getting into the Soldbuch/Wehrpass area as well. I enjoy learning about the Eastern Front in WWII. I also colorize WWII portraits/photos in my free time.

Units of Interest: 9th panzer Div (mostly Thanks to Bart, who got me hooked on the 33rd Pz Rgt!!), 16th Panzer Division, and other specific Panzer Regiments

Thanks to all who make this an enjoyable hobby! This forum has gotten off to a great start!
