Sorry - no medal ! KVK 2.Klasse citation......

Article about: I should mention that really, awards are not an area of collecting that I get involved in. But I bought this recently as something to add to my small 'Eastern Front' collection. 263.Infanter

    I vaguely remember this being the way I began, only with EKs. A 65 marked EKI in case led to part of a box for K&Q, which led to a 65 marked EKII with K&Q marked packet, and then an unmarked 65 EKII with anther K&Q packet. As for the 65 RK? Yeah I dunno about that one. As for helmets with different service branches and makers, that's gonna get expensive but its not my intended goal. Good start to your medal collection!

    I simply couldn't resist this : -



    OK, OK - I know it's not the actual medal which accompanied the citation. But I'm very pleased indeed with overall group, which for me is 'made' by the two words : -



    'In the field' on the Eastern Front, winter '41/'42 makes this group a nice addition to my collection.

    And you're all quite correct : I've seen many of the medals for sale over the years and completely ignored them . It is an aesthetically pleasing item and may well not be the first I'll purchase.............

    Ha haaaaaaa ! I know your game - you are trying to tempt me from the true and honest path of relic and field equipment collecting !

    Many thanks for the offer ( and the EK sounds delightfully tempting ) but no noooo noooooooooooooo !

    A nice little 'project' for me this year will be to watch out for a reasonably-priced ( ie cheap ! ) '65' marked kVk to go with the empty packet which I now own.

    To show that I'm sliding inexorably down the slippery slope, I've acquired via e-bay a copy of Williamson/Charita's book 'The War Merit Cross'.......

    Funny you should say that - here's my latest little addition.........





    The envelope doesn't 'belong' with the medal ; I found it on Deutsche e-bay. I shall be on the lookout for a suitable certificate to go with it, now.

    Is this new one marked? It looks like a Deschler hoard medal.
