    Is it at all possible to research the possible identity of the owner of this Erkennungsmarke? I have no attachment to this piece, and as such, would like to see it be returned to its proper owner/family.

    Sadly these are impossible to research, so returning it to the family would be out of the question.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Even if it was possible to trace the family , these items are not the sort of thing they would want to be returned, if you can trace a family which is very rare they are usually only interested in personal items if anything !!

    Oh I don't know about that; since it's all but impossible to get the actual discs they carried, both my father and I have been thrilled to even find Erkennungsmarken from the same units family members began with. Anders here on the forum recently provided me with a disc from the unit my great uncle was inducted into, which my father was thrilled with when I gave it to him. And years ago I found two discs from the IEB my Oma's cousin started in- one just a few roster numbers from his!- and that was great too. So it all depends on whether or not anyone's interested in the conflict or their family's service.

    Of course that doesn't alter the fact that it is apparently impossible to trace individuals from loose identity discs since the WASt seems to lack the funding to even recover remains for identification sometimes, which is considerably more important. Plus, I'm told, privacy laws prohibit releasing the information even if they would locate it. My father had to get his aunt's written permission to acquire his uncle and cousin's service records (since she's a German citizen and he's not)...
    Ohhhhh- pillage then burn...

    Hi Matt.
    Im glad to hear your father was pleased when he got the disc.
    Since I have no relatives that have been at war I will never really know how it feels.

    Best regards
