GERMAN WWII LUFTWAFFE FLAK STANDARD.

One of the most attractive and desirable artefacts of the Third Reich was the regimental flags, whether they be Army or Luftwaffe, the Kriegsmarine flag cannot even be mentioned as one has never been discovered, this is a very fine example of the Luftwaffe flak artillery standard. Good bright colours overall, one minor stain to one of the white rays on the Luftwaffe eagle and swastika side, one tiny spot of oxidisation to the silver embroidery to the right hand wing tip of the large Luftwaffe eagle, the flag is with its complete silver fringe, there are no areas of shredding or degrading of the silk and it is complete with a set of its streamers. The flag has not been cut from its original pole, it has been unpicked and the Berlin Embroidery Company’s logo is still visible to the end that wraps around the pole, it is marked ‘H & S Berlin No.20’, with a complete set of streamers. At present it is affixed to a non original pole and would have to be removed from the pole for shipping.

GERMAN WWII POLICE M.40 DOUBLE DECAL COMBAT HELMET.

An rare helmet being a very large size ET68 M.40 helmet having internal oval dome stamp. Faint traces of the owner’s name marked into the rear skirt. Fitted with its correct M.40 liner and zinc liner band with its nice toned to gold police non-bordered decal with the swastika border decal to the opposite side. The shell retains virtually all its original paint finish with some slight rust bleed showing through the paint, which hopefully our web images have picked up. The paint remains to two of the liner retaining rivet heads, one has some slight losses. Unusually one of the ventilation holes has been plugged, which was fashionable in WWI when plugholes were quite often attached to M.16/M17/18 helmets. The liner is complete with excellent colour, stamped size ‘61’ with original drawstring and the helmet is complete with its original chinstrap, which is maker marked and dated ‘1940’. A superb helmet.

GERMAN WWI BAVARIAN RESERVE JAGER BATTALION NO.1. MACHINE GUN CORPS COMPANY OFFICERS TUNIC GROUP.

The grouping belonged to 2nd Leutnant Ludwig Hoeger from Jettenbach am Inn in upper Bavaria. The set consists of his fine quality officers tunic with Bavarian lion buttons to the front, angled slashed pockets, standard 0/10 pattern Prussian style rear skirt, all complete with its matched Bavarian buttons facing each other. The tunic front, collar, cuffs and rear skirt all piped in green. Officers shoulder boards having green underlay with gilt ‘1’ to the centre of each board. To the buttonhole his medal ribbons for the Bavarian Merit Cross and the Iron Cross 2nd class. Medal loops to the breast pocket probably for the 1st class Iron Cross. Officer quality cloth lining to the interior with large lower inner pocket. Accompanying the tunic is his original officers Bavarian Reserve shako plate with the orb missing to the crown and the bullion blue and silver shako field cockade. Good quality gilding remaining to the plate. Accompanied by a photograph of Hoeger when he was a one year volunteer, which was between 1903 and 1906. A large framed photograph of the 1st Machine Gun Battalion in Augsburg in 1907 and a WWI period postcard of him and his men with unit details pencil written to the reverse. The tunic has one button missing, (spare button supplied in one of the lower pockets) and a couple of minor moth nips and period repairs to the interior lining but generally an excellent good grouping. The whole group is accompanied by a 2013 correspondence between the original seller to a U.K. based collector confirming that it was the tunic of 2nd Leutnant Ludwig Hoeger, he stated ‘he was the brother of my grandmother born in 1884 in Jettenbach and died July 1978’. A good attributed grouping to a rare unit.

GERMAN WWII 6TH FALLSCHIRMJAGER REGIMENT PARATROOPER HELMET.

A rare camouflage paratrooper helmet that has possibly been cut from the dead paratrooper’s head. One of he most desirable sizes being ET71 stamped shell with its classic 6FJ camouflage finish, which can be clearly seen on our web images. Minor abrasions, again easily viewed. The interior leather liner in excellent condition with good original colour, no damage to any part of the liner. Various pencilled markings over the liner and one is a star shape right at the crown, the meaning of this star shaped marking and the other names unfortunately we have no idea. All of the head size and liner size markings in ink good and clear with the maker’s marking to the front of the liner complete. The Sorbo rubber is good and firm. The helmet as stated previously has been cut from the soldier’s head and although all the strapping remains apart from the very tip of the long closure strap, they have been cut and the helmet is priced accordingly.

GERMAN WWII WAFFEN SS ENLISTED MANS OVERSEAS CAP.

A nice service worn good size 57 Waffen SS enlisted mans overseas cap. Much of the nap is thin, one or two minor nicks to the cloth, we do not believe it to be moth damage. Complete with its original set of Waffen SS Bevo woven skull and eagle set, with the cap being folded flat for so many years the Bevo weave down the breast and to the upper part of the eagles wreath has degraded slightly, but still a good image of the swastika. On pulling down the side curtains the original colour can clearly be seen and also within the upper closed envelope. To the interior the marking ‘Tw.Da’, the identification of this marking we have not been able to ascertain, with the size stamping ‘57’. A lovely enlisted mans cap.

GERMAN WWII SS OFFICERS SWORD AWARD DOCUMENT.

A very difficult to find A4 sized award document for the SS officers sword to Sturmbannfuhrer Gerhard Bommel. The document has its original pen signature of Heinrich Himmler dated ‘20th April, which was Adolf Hitler’s birthday. The document during its lifetime has been folded twice and along the long back edge of the centre fold has been strengthened with tape, which unfortunately has chemically created a large stain along the centre vertical line of the document. Accompanying the document is a 1979 signed affidavit signed in front of a notary public in Ohio USA by Henry De Maria,that he has sold one Schutzstaffel sword presentation certificate, he then goes on to describe how he obtained the certificate in the autumn of 1944 whilst a member of the 9th Army. This very document is pictured in Thomas Johnson’s volume 4 page 172. Gerhard Bommel eventually achieved the rank of SS General, he served in various roles within the SS administration, was acquitted of war crimes after World War 2, born in 1902 died in Duisburg 1966.
