    Would a combat soldier being deployed to the battle zone really have a ceremonial dress dagger with him? I would have thought an extra pair of socks would be more practical.

    He doesn't write "my father's uncle".
    He writes "my uncle's father".

    To me, an uncle is the brother of my father (or mother).

    And that is why I asked.
    Alright then...if your father had an aunt by blood and she married a man, he would be your uncle too-an uncle by Marriage, but his Father would not be your grandfather. But it's all irrelevant anyway, as the poster is a Dutch speaker and not too fluent in English, so he could actually have meant something altogether different in any case!....lol

    Ok then..glad we got the genealogy part of this thread straightened out..as I put it together mostly from the 1st post.."his Uncles father had a cafe"...To early for this ...>_<....I like my coffee to wake me up first

    Mostly we here the story that tries to support the dagger..and 8 times out of 10..the stories are worthy to be book written..in the book of "Tall tales"
    This dagger regardless of the story or the Uncle father / fathers Uncle ..... is still the real deal.

    Looking at this dagger and the center ramp..I am leaning towards a type "A" center ramp variant..as it does not have the screw closest to the chain link mount. There is a screw visible on the bottom of that mount only. The skull and runes tabs ..IMO also point to a Type "A"
    If someone sees something different than what I described..correct me if I am wrong....and will continue the Uncle father story after i gulp down my coffee to have my brain catch up

    I agree.

    It would be very interesting to find out more about the provenance of the dagger.
    Sebasvg, do you know the name of the café/hotel?
    Do you know when in 1944 it was?*

    Just an intersting fact:
    The Malmedy Massacre took place in December -44, only about 80 km from Rimburg.

    Yes it would be good to know what SS officer as in that area or attached to what SS division.
