    Default a first for the collection

    For the first time i have some info to go with one of my 1939 eks, might even be able to put a face to the cross, theres plenty of info.

    This group came from a person who was cleanig solcial flats in Germany (Hamburg). Got as found in one place, so almost direct the cross is quite minty.

    The cross is marked 40 (4 isnt so sharp) and has his ek certificate, newspaper cutting, letter (i think from a court regarding custody of his two children), and two booklets for ? rations maybe? i still have to try and translate them properly. But will be a lot easier as its mostly all typed and not had written, as i have found its very hard to even make out!

    Hope you enjoy

    ps the certificates are a lot smaller than i thought
