    Chaps, heres a splendid photograph of a well decorated, elderly (quite possibly retired) BW Marine "Kapitan zur See" Heinrich Hoffmann, proudly displaying his 57er awards....RK with Oakleaves, Deutsche Kreuz in Gold, EK I and court mounted EK II, Long Service medal together with a War badge which I cannot identify (Destroyer badge ?). Prost ! Steve.

    Stuart, nice badges, I think the Destroyer may be an early one, does it have an open or closed hingeblock ? your IAB is the same as mine a mid production (mid 1960's) , all look to be Steinhauer & Luck made.....the other badges look to be late mid production, (mid 1960's to early 1970's).
    Prost ! Steve.

    Steve,

    the gentleman who sold me these badges was very knowledgeable, I beleive he described the Destroyer as early part of mid- production and the Infantry assault badge as early production. I think you may of aquired your Blockade runner from the same gentleman as I just missed out on it. Very nice badge by the way.
    I am hoping to soon aquire an early Coastal Artillery badge and Blockade runner badge to get me a little closer to completing my KM 57er collection before I progress to Luftwaffe and Heer combat awards. It seems to me that finding the Schnell boot award may prove to be very difficult indeed and the Uboot badge also (love yours BTW).

    Best regards,

    Stuart
