    Default Kriegsverdienstkreuz 2.Klasse mit Schwertern

    Will post the Dienstbuch separately but picked up this grouping yesterday. Was somewhat fortunate to keep these together as the dealer bought out an old collection and did not realize that the KvK and the Dienstbuch were to the same person. Massive save!!

    So here is the award and KvK. Cross is in mint shape.

    Not a typical award document. Looks more like a notice of sorts. Issued to and signed by Alfred Steike of the LS-Polizei in Hannover.

    Not 100% sure what the LS-Polizei were. Standard Luftschutz or more police oriented.

    Any and all comments welcome.

    Michael

    LS-Polizei or LSP means Luftschutzpolizei [Air Raid Protection Police].

    This was a Technische Hilfspolizei [Technical Auxiliary Police, the same status held by the TN and the volunteer fire brigades] that originated from the Sicherheits- und Hilfsdienst (SHD) [Security- and Aid Service].

    Raised in 1937, the SHD was an air defense organisation under the control of the Reichsluftfahrtministerium [National Air Ministry] and the sister organisation of the LSW. (Note that the service book is for use by the SHD and the LSW.) In 1942, the SHD was disbanded and its components split up.
    The SHD's motorized/mobile units [motorisierte SHD-Abteilungen] were absorbed by the Luftwaffe, while the stationary units [ortsfester SHD I. Ordnung] became the newly-established LSP.

    Your man belonged to the latter group: He started out with the SHD and then transferred to the LSP.

    Ralph,

    I owe you big time. I looked the first time when I got it and for some reason missed it. Assumed it was unmarked.

    But after just double checking I see that it is marked "18". If memory serves me correct, that is B.H. Mayers

    Thanks Chris,

    A little stain on one of the sword tips but otherwise it's a nice one. Now to find a silver one like yours!
