Article about: Hi Paul,the Bomber clasp worries me a bit. Is it definately G/D? What troubles me is the nose of the bomb,which is riveted on. Exactly matches the nose of the bomb template underneath. Off-s

    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

    Hi Paul the hinge on the HSF is wrong for a zinc Schwerin IMO. Stewy S

    Paul,

    What has happened to them, they look like they have been in the ground, the Bomber in particular?

    Your right Stewy the hinge looks like the one on the tombak schwerin, not sure whether the wrong hinge has been added to a zinc badge !!

    The HSF could be chemically aged which could explain it's condition ,the bomber clasp is ground dug from a luftwaffe base.

    Both edges of the O/L wreath's too soft as well. Along with a few other bits. I think it's a copy of the tombak type. Stewy S
