Diary pics this time i hope
As the pics blow up when enlarged can someone confirm that the oval badge my man is wearing on guard duty page 1 is for zeppelin service?
Superb group which tells his life Nice to see his rise through the ranks. Luftwaffe Admin stuff is not that often seen.
I looked at the pic you mentioned: I am not 100% certain as I cannot make out all the details, but I think you are right.
A very nice group , the personal doc groups are what i favour as they give a real history of the people who in various ways fought the war

1st July 1916
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
