I thought i would post this set of of images i have from a period produced potfolio of artwork and photographs.

The title of this set is "Kampf Unter der Kriegsflagge".

The pieces of artwork were produced by the marine artist Adolf Bock.

For those of us who collect Kriegsmarine awards the name of Adolf Bock is quite familiar.As the designer of the HSF badge his name can be seen on the reverse of many Schwerin HSF badges,with the exception of a few unmarked examples.

It seems that Bock was a well established marine artist and i was able to find a little more information on Bock here.

There are 34 prints in the portfolio,18 original prints of Bock's artwork and 16 photographic reproductions from KM photographers.

Bock's artwork is patriotic in theme,but well crafted,nonetheless.

Here are the cover and index pages.

Verlag, Erich Klinghammer, Berlin

Regards,Martin.
