(CS681) A Pair of German Documents to a German Medical Doctor. The first citation is a full citation for a Russian Front Medal. It is dated 1st August 1942. It is signed by a chief physician and rubber stamped. The second is a field notification citation for the Iron Cross 1st Class from 1st battalion of Gren Reg. 337 and was for action on the 14.4.1943. This like the first one, is folded once. A rare pair of citations to a doctor who would normally only qualify for the War Service Cross and not the Iron Cross. This doctor must have done something pretty spectacular to qualify for this award. The 337 Grenadier Regiment was part of the 208 Infantry Division commanded by Gen Maj Karl Von Schlieben and this division fought heavily in France, and was transferred to Russia where it was in the central sector in January 1942. It also took part in the Kursk offensive in 1943, where it sustained very heavy losses. The document shows the Doctor was wounded and sent the best along with the Iron Cross and Citation from this Grenadier Regiment where it was stated they hope he recovers quickly. A great talking piece, a grouping that has the edge. GBP 99.00 (UK Pounds)

(CS678) A Mountain Group consisting of 3 Citations to a Obergefreiten Georg Spindler of the STABSBATTR.II.GEB.ART.REG.95. Part of the German 5th Mountain Division. The citations are for the iron cross 2nd class, awarded on 13/8/43 and signed by the General Leutnant and Divisional Commander Julius Alfred "Papa" Ringel. The next document is for the war merit cross 2nd class with swords issue on 30/3/43, again signed by the General Leutnant and Divisional Commander Julius Alfred "Papa" Ringel. Finally, the citation for the wound badge in black, signed by a physician and issued in 2/8/1943. The documents are folded and file punched but in very good condition and are rare to find with the signature of such a well known Knights Cross personality who's life span was 16 November 1889 - 11 February 1967 and he was the holder of the knights cross and oakleaves as well as other major decorations. A history of the division is noted below, a very nice set of the mountain troop collector to acquire.The German 5th Mountain Division (5th Gebirgs Division) was established in the Austrian Tirol in October 1940, out of regiments taken from the 1. Gebirgs-Division and the 10. Infanterie Division. Its first action was in the 1941 Balkans Campaign, when it took part in Operations Marita and Merkur ; in the latter it was used in an air-landing role. In November, it returned to Germany for rehabilitation, and in April 1942 it was deployed to the Eastern Front, where it joined Army Group North on the Volkhov Front. In April 1943 it was redeployed to Italy. It fought out the remainder of the war in Italy and the Western Alps, and surrendered to the Americans near Turin in May 1945. The group was acquired from a collector in Denmark. GBP 325.00 (UK Pounds)

(CS971) A Document Group of Two to A Hans Muthel who was a civilian employee of the German army in the Hamburg area. The first citation is for the cross of honour with swords and this was dated 21st July 1935 and signed by a police official. The second award is for the war merit cross 2nd class without swords, but it is the rare military issue to a civilian employee, issued in Hamburg on behalf of a general der infanterie. This is the A5 size and shows that it has been folded at some point, but not badly. Both citations are in very good condition with the war merit cross one rating as rare. GBP 75.00 (UK Pounds)

(M1082) A Document Group of 3 to a WWI veteran. The grouping consists of a Cross of Honour With Swords, issued in 1933, a 25 Year Faithful Service Cross dated 1942, and a War Merit Cross 2nd Class dated 1944 and awarded in Paris and signed by the admiral commander of the West. The mans name was Miel Friedrich Heinrich Bruchschmidt. The combination is unusual in the fact that he was obviously recalled as an inspector for the German navy. Unusual to get a Paris war merit cross 2nd class. GBP 95.00 (UK Pounds)

(CS679) A Very Scarce and unusual Document that was given out to the troops of the 24th Panzer Division on the 24th August 1944. It is basically a small postcard size printed piece of paper that says that a General has recognised the 27th Panzer Division for exemplary bravery in the field. Very unusual and not seen before. This could be similar to the Sardinian Shield with a little badge issued but I don't know. Very nice picture of two panzers going by a building. It would fit into the back page of a soldbuch or wehrpass easily. Worthy of further research. GBP 99.00 (UK Pounds)

(M570) A U-Boat Document Group to Baron Emmerith Freiherr Von Mirbach. The documents consist of a post war British naval document, two promotion documents, one being signed by Raider and a document for qualifying as a u-boat engineer. Also comes with this a couple of other documents and the group is also partially illustrated in the book "Torpedo Los" by Gordon Williamson, being shown on pages 292-294. These items were formally in Gordon Williamsons collection. A very scarce set of documents to acquire. This officer was still alive into the late 1990's. The book also states that he was on U595 and was captured. More research can be found on the internet for this u-boat officer. GBP 497.50 (UK Pounds)
(P562) A Scarce Navy Issue Spanish Cross citation in bronze without swords to Oberboatsmannsmasten Karl Wagner,The document is in overall good condition. But has been stuck to a board and framed. It has since been removed as can be seen, The document is also age staind. A total of 7869, Bronze awards were issued without swords. Scarce document to find GBP 175.00 (UK Pounds)

(P563) A Luftwaffe Flak Badge Citation. The document has been stuck down to a piece of paper cut from a home and garden catalogue. The citaiton is in good conditionb and was folded this is showing some splitting. The citaiton is awarded to Gefreiten Josef Classen of the 3./Schw. Flakabteilung 344 part of the 13th Flak Division and is signed by a General Grade officer and was issued in the French section in 1943, Scarce to find GBP 45.00 (UK Pounds)
