    I only really got to know the bloke when I bought the Kreigs flag, so like you said just the timing was bad.....but he is going out of business in 6 months and he has a beaded Luft M40 with a white stripe round it......firefighters I think.....he wants 900 for it, but said he is going to be flogging stuff very shortly for any price he can get.....told him to hold it for me and he said he do a deal on it...... havent got a beaded helmt yet

    Thanks panzer,

    How do you display them, I'm thinking of getting this flag folded, in a frame with photos of the officer and a history.

    Wow fantastic peice...I have one that was given to me years ago, the senior officer also bought back one of these as well as a double decal afrika korps M 35.

    I think when someone tells you they found an item in a place, there has to be a little bit of trust that they are telling the truth, and also a lot of giving the benefit of the doubt. As long as you are happy ith your shield and the fact it has come from Tobruk, then there is no need to worry or doubt too much, just take it as it is.....

    Lovely relic mate
    Thanks, I'm happy with it and the seller seemed an honest guy, he had 4 that he bought from a regular supplier of dug relics. I saw one of the others, a tri colour shield still attached to part of the helmet. That is a great flag, shame you did not get the helmet as well! It would be good if you can post any more info or pics, great stuff to see.

    Regards,

    Jerry

    My Dad was in Tobruk during the war, though I'm not sure if he was inside during the siege.

    Whatever its just an opinion.
