A nice addition Kai. it the first time I see those actually.
Here is an official Reich charity set to support the army. All Branches are there. UBoote, Luftwaffe, Heer, Waffen SS etc... Lok at the details they are high quality engravings and very interesting from a historical point of view. I will let you identify the vehicles!!
A nice U.S War stamp used for airmail The stamp itself is very common. What's interesting here is the cancelation that was used by the Army while it was stationed in Europe. You can clearly read the text.
A few other German Reich issues:
Where's the special Stamp ? Can't wait.
these are some awesome stamp collections
I actually posted these issues a few days ago. there are 12 stamps.
They are: Nachrichten, Schnellboot, Panzers, FallschirmJäger, Stuka, Waffen SS , Flak, Grenadiere, Pioneer, Zug Abwehr, kradfahrer and U-Boote.
I picked them out because of the details of the engravings. They almost look like pictures.
Skipper, FP nr 31966:
(28.4.1940-19.9.1940) Transport-Kolonne der Luftwaffe 24/XII,
(1.3.1942-7.9.1942) Baustoff-Kolonne (bespannt) 430.
Cool, do you have a stamp katalogus with the exact units ? Thanks for this.
You mean you recognize these units by heart just by seeing the stamps? Wow!
Oh I see ! I didn't get it . You are talking about the Felpostletter .
Sturmkreuz this is excellent news!
Ididn't know this soldier was a Luftwaffe Gefreiter.
Do you know I have a huge archive of this man . The first one has 60 letters dating from 1942 to 44 . I have started posting them for St Valentine's Day because they are mostly love letters from this Gefreiter to his French Fiancée.
You will find them in the Militaria section and the title is Romeo and Juliette (I started this yesterday)
I should get 320 more documents form him next week. Thanks a lot for your help.
Nice, I think you can read now!
Do you know the 1943 and 1944 figures and their postions too?
Do you have full name of person?
The letter says Gefreiter Willi Mathhias. FP NUMMER 31966
