    "Zur Erinnerung an unsere Verlobung" [As a memory of our engagement], written at Straubing in Lower Bavaria. Apparently he was cut out of a wedding photo, maybe so it fits in a photoalbum?

    Great set Nick ! from a love struck assault gunner nice Deumer first class KvK with what looks like an original wartime box, , not many here will know that crafty Wilhelm ground the swastika off this wartime produced awards (left overs in the factory) and glued a 57er "1939" disc on top, so that it conformed to the new regulations...notice the same bad deteriorating finish as on a late wartime version ! Great items, great provenance ! The KvK second class is also a Deumer, the Ost and long service are, as I am sure you know, St u L made ...........Its a pity his sports badge was not included.............Nick, any hint of a name ?
    Prost ! Steve.

    Thanks for the comments guys! I was hoping to find out his name via the discriptions on the reverse of the photo, but can't decipher it. I've asked the seller for more information on him, still waiting for his reply.

    He did let me know already he has a few of the wartime awards too and they are reserved for me till I can regenerate funds.

    Regards
