    i was given what i was told is a first world war sleeping bag over 20 yrs ago,it has capt bolton 5th ELR printed on it and a number N3428 which you can see in the photos,i assume it is east lancs regiment, over the years i have made modest attempts to find out about it, i found a pair of brothers in the first world war called bolton but don't know if they are the ones.i tried a couple of time to phone the east lancs museum but they never answered the phone,so is this a first world war sleeping bag and how could i find any info on capt bolton

    Last two for von Felbert look like Finnish Order of Liberty 3rd/4th Class and Finnish Commemorative Medal (both WW1) but perhaps check if he served in Finland. The photo if not clear enough for me to be certain. I can add nothing more on Muller.

    I believe the 'Unknown' R.A.D. man is none other than G.A.F. Inspector Dr. Wilhelm Decker..

    Martin I can identify one of the soldiers in your pc. The fourth person from the right is Dvr. John William Barrett (My wife’s Grandfather, sadly he was killed in 1917). Regards Dave H

    Thought to update my older thread from the collection. Since a few months as you know I've dedicated myself to collect 212. Infanterie-Division / 212. Volks-Grenadier-Divison material as well as researching the division. I have collected other material and divisions before but a few months ago I was able to honour a friends collection and interest, the reason why I started dedicating myself to this division. The Division took part in the Sitzkrieg, Westfeldzug, Occupation of France, Ostfeldzug (Leningrad, Wolchow, Luga, Pleskau ..) and was pratically destroyed in Lituania, September 1944. The Division was disbanded and end of September it was rebuild as 212. Volksgrenadier-Division. It took part in the Ardennes Offensive (Battle of the Bulge) and kept on fighting at the Rhein and Trier until it went into US Captivity at end of April, begin of May 1945 after suffering unbearable losses during the last few months and the entire war. Currently I have (in total) 18 Wehrpasse / Soldbücher (excl. one that is in the mail on its way to me), various Award documents and Death Cards, 1 Photoalbum, 1 Erkennungsmarke and some other material. -- I'm always searching for any material (uniforms, documents and photographs, literature etc.) related to the Division. All tips are appreciated. For my research I am also interested in scans or copies! My collection -- as on the day of starting this topic (June 1, 2017).
