    Default Vets souvenir

    Hi,
    I thought you might like to see what was given to me by an old Veteran.
    This was taken from a young german soldier in france by a British soldier
    he was part of a tank crew. It contains the following.
    1914 5 pfennig, 1925 10 pfennig, 1932 10 pfennig, 1942 2 francs,
    1928 1 francs 1923 200 mark, 1935 5 mils palistine and 1927 25 ces,?
    also the W.W.1 Iron cross, W.W.1 vererans badge, Medal of wilhelm 1.
    and a luft eagle badge on the front. the cap badge was his own.
    great gift.
    Dave

    Hi Paul,
    Yes he was in the Greys, it is his own badge he was in a tank crew that
    went right through to germany. He was in a sherman tank.
