    This was an award sponsored by a business firm, Firma Boecker for a 100m run...I see no indication of HJ or Party involvement...

    Thank you glenn, I was wondering why there were no party symbols on it, and here I thought Firma Boecker was the recipients name lol I guess it would not fit in with my TR items.....

    Yes harry that is true, but I was hoping it was a hitler jugend award or from a DRL event, the price is 150 which seems high for not being party related so I will have to ponder over my decision.

    It is also missing either a torch or a spear in his left hand.

    That is what I thought also but I translated the writing and it roughly says "the site running champion 100" meters I assume, so I believe the pose is a runner breaking across the finish line, even though it does look like that hand should be holding something.......maybe its a desktop paperwieght pen holder lol

    Default Re: German Sports Award Bronze statue help needed, DAF?

    I did alittle bit of research and came across this photo showing a very similiar award being held by a member of the DAF, since the award I am asking about was presented by a business it is possible they held a track and field event for the workers, possible???

    Thanks glenn, I love doing the detective work, I think I will try to pick this one up and display it as such with the photo, and maybe a DAF item also, it should make for a nice presentation.
