Hi Guys, I thought that I would share some pics with you of one of my very favorite items from my collection.
I bought this dagger back in the 1980's from a friend who's Uncle brought it home in 1945. I only got to buy the dagger as my friend, Malcolm, was in dire need of money after falling foul of the Inland Revenue (The Tax Man) so I got the dagger for the same price as local militaria dealer the late Mike Long offered him at the time, £450.
British members of the forum may recall that there was a scandal in the late 1980's when it was discovered that a minor member of the British Royal family had an SS man as her father? Anyway, this alerted me to the exsistance of the SS Dienstalterlistes held by the IWM in London. I made an appointment to consult the archives and this led to the discovery that my dagger was originally owned by SS Standartenfuhrer Dr. Enno Lolling.
He was a major War Criminal as he was head of the SS WVHA Amtsgruppe D-Konzentrationslager. This made him in charge of the entire Medical administration of the KL system. I have photocopies of his full SS service record from the Berlin document centre. Plus I obtained details of all his WW1 service in the Navy.

On this site there are no less that ten photos of Dr Lolling! For 19 years I have been looking, without sucess, for photos of him. Until earlier last year I had only one, then with the kind help of a forum member I was sent another one. As you can imagine I am very excited to see all these new pics.
I have included a brief summary of his life.
