    Default Ostfront medal 2

    Here is my second OFM. I received it from my German friend who also gave me his father's EK1, EK2 and ribbon bars. Although the silver is gone, it is still in excellent shape. If it's an original, that is.

    The ring number was impossible to photograph on the day due to the overcast weather. It says "110".

    That's a generous gift to receive! Has you friend told you of his Father's service?

    He has spoke about his father's service but not in detail. His father's brother was killed at Stalingrad. I got to see the final letters he sent before he vanished. I told my friend he should get those letters behind glass or something to protect them.
    I'll have to see if I can get more information about his father's service without prying.
