Hans-Ekkehard Bob

Article about: RIP, a sad day!....

    Default Hans-Ekkehard Bob

    Hello guys, there was another thread in this section of the forum about Herr Ludwig Bauer, so i thought to start this one here as well.
    If there is another section of the forum that this thread would fit better, then a moderator could please move it.

    I recently bought the book of the RK winner Herr Hans-Ekkehard Bob and received it today.
    I wanted to share with the collecting community the website of Herr Hans-Ekkehard Bob. I found it accidentally while searching for his pictures.
    Hans-Ekkehard bob

    His book is titled "Verratener Idealismus" (Betrayed Ideals) which has been also translated in English.
    You can purchase it directly from his website and inside the book you can find a signed postcard of Herr Bob.
    Unfortunately his health is not super right now, but his daughter is managing the website and replies to inqueries.
    Due to his health issues, he signs the photos only by his last name ''Bob''.
    Cheers

    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

    Hi buddy, he is 95 now and had a heart operation last year. That's what affected his health quite a lot.

    I have a few photos he sent me and i will post them later when i get home.
    Dean, follow the link i provided above and contact his daughter Delia. She told me that when he was feeling better he would sign a bunch of photos so that they could be sent with the books when purchased through his website.
