    Hi Horst, that is an interesting dagger. I would love to hear more about him and his life.

    I love re-searched items!

    Cheers, Ade.

    Adrian - I agree it is always a pleasure to find items that relate to a particular person such as this dagger does. The research was conducted by Robert McDivitt of Militaria Research Services a number of years ago - the name on the dagger(lower crossguard & upper scabbard fitting) is G. Rehfeld and after reviewing copies of his SS Stammkarte it reflects that he served in the Hitler Youth for 5 years .
    I havent seen to many Hitler Youth Leader daggers that reflect owners names etc making this a rare bird to say the least.
    Regards
    Horst

    Would it be possible to see a better photos of the owner's name? I find this very interesting.

    The HJ leader daggers are very unique looking. Thanks for showing

    How very true! I have always thought them to be a very elegant design & would certainly like to be in the position to go shopping for one. I have never before seen a personalised HJ leader & it certainly is a treat to have a named & researched dagger. Even better to have the rare hangers accompanying the piece! Very nice Horst

    I have no doubts about your research on this particular piece & it is perfectly logical that your name would appear in an SS file. However.....for anyone with named pieces from the wehrmacht McDivitt research is very far from conclusive as I recently found.

    McDivitt only has access to those files held in the U.S. archive & that archive is NOT complete. I passed up a dagger on which he had done a search with no result. Another collector subsequently purchased the dagger & retrieved the military records from the bundesarchiv.

    Only rarely will there be a single result for a given name from the German archive.
