Material for books needed

Postby Mark C Yerger » Sat Jan 31, 2004 11:25 am

Looking for photos (buy or borrow) for German Cross in Gold holders of the SS and Police. Both those who won the award only, as well as Knight's Cross holders who also won the GC. Looking for:

signed (on image) photos and unsigned photos
award documents to or signed by SS/Police German Cross holders
other relative material to their units, especially marked vehicles by unit

full credit given for material used

Hi Mark,

If you still looking I have one of von Scotti in his solbuch, but it does not show his DKiG

Otto Paetsch - DKiG 24.4.1943 - as CO of the Wiking Division's reconnaissance detachment. Two types of signature, in Germanic and 'international' handwriting. Let me know if these are of any use to you and I will furnish publication quality scans.

My father in law Reinhold T. got the GC in Gold during the Ardennenoffensive with his HJ-unit (12. SS-PD). This foto was taken in spring 1943 after being wounded in the caucasus Dec. 24th, 42.

Two other interesting photos. "Guarding the Führer at the new Reichskanzlei" and "Ehrenwache am Grabmal der Gefallenen der Waffen-SS". Yes, Reinhold had a very interesting career. Simply elite like our both families and his third daughter. :up:
