Thomas Cooper

I plan to do a lecture on British traitors in WW2 for a leadership course, and I am trying to find a picture (in uniform or not) of Thomas Cooper who served in the Waffen-SS. Can anyone help?

Items ID

Having checked the examples shown in Brian L Davis's books (German Army Uniforms & Insignia 1933 -1945 & Badges & Insignia Of The Third Reich 1933-1945) it would appear that there is very little difference between the 5th Kav Rgt deathshead & a Panzer collar tab variant. Of course with only one cava...

Items ID

Hi, Further to my last message. I believe that the metal eagle could well be a naval chest badge that was fitted in place of a cloth variant on some tropical uniform tunics (an example can be seen on http://www.ab-militaria.com (just type Korvettenkapitan in the search box on the site)). The cross i...

KC Recommendations

Great idea for a thread. My recommendation would go to Oberleutnant Gunther Viezenz (10./Gren Rgt 7 - 252 Inf Div). No idea of the details leading to the award of the Knights Cross to this soldier on 7th Jan 1944 but this is a man who had an armful of Tank Destruction Badges being credited with 21 k...

ID required

Hi, I may be able to help with the first two items but the rest are a mystery to me. The first item - I believe this Deathshead is an emblem that was usually affixed to the sidecaps of those serving in certain squadrons of the 5th Kavallerie Regt. (The UK dealer Alan Beadle was selling one such cap ...

Collections

I collect most things Third Reich although I do tend to shy away from anything to do with the camps & weapons. Badges, medals, cuffbands, award citations, collar tabs, headgear & tunics all feature in my collection. My prize, or favourite items being the GD tunic belonging to Oberlt Richter complete...

German Snipers

It's been almost two years since your question was posted so I'm sure you will have seen it by now but if not then you might like to get hold of a newish book called SNIPER ON THE EASTERN FRONT (published by Pen & Sword 2005 in the UK) which is the memoirs of Sepp Allerberger, RK holder. It is a ver...

Could anyone provide me with information on this officer with regards to his wartime, & post war, service? He ...
