Article about: by Stickgrenade Adrian, in Volume 1 issue 3 it is asking for help with an up and coming article on LW shooting lanyards with your said photo present. I have up to Volume 2 issue 2 and no art

    Default Photos of the EK2 in wear.

    As an EK2 collector I also like to collect images of the award in wear as and when I can get them. These awards never usually see daylight again after they've been awarded so photos of them being worn are relatively rare, usually just after they've been handed out or on special occasions.
    So, if you have a photo of an EK2 being worn, please post it here!

    I'll kick off with some portraits and wedding photos.......

    Just out of curiosity, if anyone gets International Medal Collector magazine, can they confirm if the first image of the Luftwaffe guy was used in the edition featuring shooting lanyards please?

    Thanks Nick.
    Here we have a few warm weather awards.

    Of interest here in the first photo we have what could be a young Michael Schumacher congratulating Graham Hill.....

    In the third, note the pyramid in the background and also the awardee clutching what appears to be the EK2 award envelope and urkunde.

    The fourth shows the EK2 as well as the Italio/German African campaign medal.

    A few Gebirgsjäger.....

    In the third photo the guy shaking hands is actually being awarded the KVK1 (as you can see in the fourth photo) but note the next EK2 ready to be given out in the hand of the person on the left (back to camera).

    A few in the snow.....

    Of interest here is the Specialist Qualification badge worn on the lower sleeve by the guy on the right in the second photo......

    .....the third shows an SS Sturmann and Oberscharführer.....

    .....and in the fourth you can see an Infanterie Sturmabziechen being worn by a member of the Luftwaffe (Flak?).
