    Thought it had to be.. the story goes my grandad took it from a dead german ss officer, I also have a wound medal and some photos that were taken from the same ss officer.. I'll scan the pictures and post on this site.. some graphic shots.. some good history.

    I hope you will post these other items for us to look at. It's a shame to break up the group if the items came from the same person.
    Also remember that most vet bring backs were items taken from 'a dead SS officer' and will need solid evidence to support it otherwise it is just a medal and as the saying goes 'buy the item, not the story'.........

    Would like to add that this kind of medal with ribbon did not belongs to field uniform so the statement "taken from some dead officer" is more than doubtful always

    I did not intend to 'big up' the medal by creating a story around it. It was just what I was told from a child.. , I just thought it was an intresting story, be it true or not... and the item is just a medal and thats all is for sale, sorry if I misled. I have created an album of some of the photo's that were passed down to me with the medal. I will post them on to a seperate forum in a day or so.
