    Default Iron cross,need of help

    Hi there, I have a little problem .I wonder if one of you clever guys can help me with info of a Iron cross from 1941.I know it's hard to explain how it lookes ,but I am really interested of what the signs of it stands for.

    Well ,it's an iron cross black & silver with 2 sabers crossing, and on the top there is a sign "5"on the lest side the sign is " KOHO. On the right the sign is "HOB", and on the bottom is a sign "1941",.
    Maybe this is a copy, i am not sure , but I would be more than happy if I could get any kind of info of this cross, What the signs means , and who was wering this cross. P.S Sorry for my poor English , Greetings Roger -Sweden

    Hi Roger, and welcome to the forum! Your English is fine!

    This is what you have. 5th Don Cossack Cavalry Regiment cross.

    To be original it needs to match this one, which I show courtsey of Detlev Niemann.

    The magazine article gives some details.


    Cheers, Ade.
