Rare German death card from Kompanie-Chef and Oberleutnant Georg Gill of a Gebirgs-Pionier-Battalion . He was awarded the Iron Cross first and second class, A silver Close Combat Clasp (Nahkampfspange), a General Assult badge, Silver wound badge, Croatian War Merit Cross and the Eastern Front medal. Fought in Poland, France, Russia, Greece, Bulgaria en Yougoslavia.
Genuine Iron Cross first class award document in good condition. Awarded to Gefreiter Josef Smetanig of the 2nd company of Pionier Batallion 268. The interesting part is that this document was awarded in september 1940, most likely for his actions during the Blitzkrieg in France.
Very nice and well preserved Wehrpass of Luftwaffe Unteroffizier Kirschke Otto. The pass is very interesting because it shows a very detailed battle history of Holland cities; Maastricht and Roermond, Belgian cities such as; Maaseik, Beeringen, Lummen, Hasselt, Diest, Leuven, Brussel, Oudenaarde, Desselgem, Harelbeke, Tielt, Diksmuide French cities; Lille, Soissons, Chateau … Later also Romania, Bulgaria, Albania, Greece…
I got this very rare booklet last week due one of my paper adds. It’s a German DAF propaganda booklet for Flemish laborers who were forced to go and work in Germany. ‘Handleiding voor de Vlaamsche arbeiders in Duitschland’ (Manual for the Flemish laborers in Germany).
Untouched and straight from the family Luftwaffe award document grouping. All documents belong to Unteroffizier Rüpgen Wilhelm who was a qualified airgunner and also received this badge in 1940. He was promoted during the war from Gefreiter to Unteroffizier and took part in the Afrika Campaign.
