SA pennant..my favorite
Interesting piece Bronk
I had been reading WW2 for over 35 years and then I got this !!!!!!!!!!!!! there was more, but I think my brother sold it....that's a Knight's Cross, only about 7300 ever awarded...the pistol<>CZ 27, with waffenamts and proof german eagle
Very nice Bronk!! Who's the maker on the KC? Looks to have a lot of its frosting left, do you have the case? I like the pennants and fraunschaft pins too.
Echoing KJ Jr, but that is a really neat piece!
My Grandfathers Flight log book...
I had 2, sold one...you know I had these on WAF,GCA, AHF, and I think someone did ID the makers, but I don't remember..if you go to those forums, my name bronk, there are better pics....also had 2 Spangen[s?]...yes, I have case and ribbon...the GIs seemed to know what to get....I used my brothers camera before..I thought I saved the good pics..if not I will try to get some more...the pins are in PERFECT condition...I love just looking at them...I have the regimental book, and it says when they [ 179th ] got to Munich, they went on a souvenir hunt !!
Australia...we had a huge (for Australia) pilot and crew training program...finished off in Canada often before becoming operational...
My grandfather was a great pilot, but after crashing three aircraft in night training, twice clipping power lines....they realised he had night blindness...so they offered a test pilot job, which he took.
Didn't know this when he was alive to my annoyance...the other grandfather was ground crew, loaded bombs apparently...
I'll have to look you up over there and see, I don't recall seeing them but ya know what they say ,LOL, sweet pieces Bronk!!
42...for the log book.
yes, nice...that's something you don't see much in militaria forums,at least I don't
this was at least a year ago...let me check ...let me check WAR RELICS FORUM.. I'm on there also..
better close ups of RKs..I forgot exactly where and how I posted the pics..date is 5-12-2013
many more pics of RKs and Regimental book..might need to login into GCA
Nice crosses!! Can't make the one out, is it a lazy 2? Other is S/L, very nice!!!
I have yet to get a KC for my collection, I just have a gold and silver KC of the KVK with swords in my collection.
picture? I'm not familiar with lazy 2, but I thought a lazy 3 is bad? the GCA, AHF, WRF guys are much more knowledgeable than I, on the KCs
sorry I didn't see this before...one of my favorite sections on the forums is the edged weapons section...what are they?
