57er Fire cross 2nd Class.............
Gents, just landed on the door mat ! this 57er "Feuerwehr-Ehrenziechen " second class in Silver by St u L....not seen that often, just missing its swastika !
I now have both fire crosses, first class in Gold and second class (above) in Silver........the finish and enamelling is superb on both, they IMO gorgeous looking awards, again often overlooked by us 57ers !
Prost ! Steve.
"The German Army is the perfectly adapted, perfectly running Machine. The difference is that the Germans are organised with a view to War...with the cold, hard, practical and business-like purpose of winning victories."
