    Well that's the same scene with the hunter his dog and the deer as in my repro from Poland, complete with the strange (masonic?) deer head at the top! Yours looks much better done and detailed though so I'd consider that a huge plus. Now I know where the inspiration for mine came from, lol. Good luck!

    Hi there, your translation is not correct, it simply says:

    Best shooter
    Shooting association Gardelegen 1908

    Each year these associations had a shooting contest and these cutlasses were handed out to the winner.

    Gardelegen is one of the oldest shooting ( Schützen) associations of Germany and still in practise.

    2 Very nice edged weapons.

    If you may Mr Blastoff ...please post the 1st Model Luftwaffe dagger in it own subforum > http://www.warrelics.eu/forum/luftwaffe/

    The forum requires this for separate study and to keep all types consistent in the same category.

    A quality cutlass, that by the look of it may actually have been used on hunting trips.

    Pending any re-post of the 1st Patt Luftwaffe dagger and without prejudice as I am not sure.

    Can anybody explain the Berlin emblem on the scabbard?

    I served in Berlin befor the wall came down and I am familiar with the design of the 1954 - Stadt and Landeswappen (with a crown combining the features of the mural crown with the Volkeskrone symbolising a republic) though this seems more like the 1935 Stadtwappen (with a mural crown representing the walls of a city) also maintained in the DDR up to re-unification but I have never seen it on a Third Reich piece. What have I missed?

    Regards

    that standing bear is the Squadrons weapons " coat of armour"

    although crudly applied it is the correct one for the 27th Jagdgeschwader.

    I notice the 2./JG27 insignia is engraved (surprisingly crudely, as Ger points out), to the reverse of the scabbard.
    Would this be due to a regulation preventing such modifications to the face?

    Thanks Ger,

    That is helpful.

    Was this a known / established practice? I suppose it must have been "unofficial". Do you know if there is a Berlin connection to that sub-unit?
