I am never sure with threads of this sort because it's in the German orders & decorations section whether my years pick ups are meant to be included. Anyway, I had a very good year collecting in my main interest these days.
Whatever its just an opinion.
The slant should generally be towards German Orders and Decorations where possible.
Looking for LDO marked EK2s and items relating to U-406.....
That Malta badge is a great find Jerry!...
It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.

For me this was the year I started my collection, I figured im going to get a few key items to represent germany in WW2 and it just kept growing! I filled a display case and then some! Collecting helmets turned into caps, then awards, then documents, it truly is a never ending and evolving hobby, since I have so much now I will simply post photos of the items that I purchased from the classifieds of our fellow forum members, without them and without all of your help I would be lost in this very overwhelming yet fun hobby, thank you all and have a Happy New Year!!!!!!
for me I have enjoyed the year on here and taking part also still learning after all these years.happy new collecting year ladies and gentlemen.yamass prost cheers sainte,and for you who are down under bottoms up.
My year startet very bad...had to start selling parts of my collection...some of the items had been mine for 17 years so it have been a very hard period...but when I look back..there was also good times I got in contakt with relatives to a danish SS officer " I got heīs diary" see picture. I got a pair of Wintertrousers so now I got a complete Fallschirmjager winter uniform. I went to germany on a small trip and found some orders and other nice items.
I still need to sell stuff so feel free to ask if you look for items .
PS I hope on day to make an E-book on the SS diary
It would be interesting to learn of the History of Arentoft if you would like to post it !!

Thought shall be the harder , heart the keener,
Courage the greater as our strength faileth.
Here lies our leader ,in the dust of his greatness.
Who leaves him now , be damned forever.
We who are old now shall not leave this Battle,
But lie at his feet , in the dust with our leader
