    I actually hold most attachment to the collar tabs which were from a Great Uncle. He was badly wounded in 1915 and after recuperating he was given a position driving staff officers. He later volunteered for the Sturm truppen and was KIA.

    It was the collar tabs that caught my attention, Greimers.

    Were they worn as a pair, left and right?

    Most unusual, as two diffeent cars are shown, but, apart from that, they look like a pair.

    Marvellous family history. Deserves to be researched in detail and recorded, but maybe you have done this already.

    I annotated and published my father's memoirs. Most useful thing I've ever done.

    Cheers,

    Pat

    Hi Pat, they are a pair, the left tab is missing the steering wheel and column which are seperate attachments to the vehicle itself. Unfortunately these tabs were attacked by what I later found out to be "carpet beetles".

    You've got some really nice items there. I really like the Goblet with the
    Red Eagle attached to it.
