Partial Rohm Dagger SS Hauptsturmfuhrer Ludwig Deeg.
This is the partial Rohm dagger of SS Hauptsturmfuhrer Ludwig Deeg.
I have received a nice thick research package from SS researcher Ross Kelbaugh and I wanted to share. There is a lot more that I still have to translate including a letter written by Deeg which is long and hard to read and many official letters and documents including a complete SS officer and Race and settlement files.As there is too much to post here I will be making more information available to anyone interested via a web site I am working on including scans of some of the documents and will publish soon and post a link here. I had already had a name and a face via in a thread Ross posted on ssdaggersforum,I came across it by accident one afternoon when not even looking for the owner of my dagger I'm sure you can imagine what that was like.Ross provided an excellent service at what I thought is very reasonable price for the work and expertise that is involved, and far cheaper than I expected.
