It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.
I'm Spartacus, not really i'm Paul!...
Thanks, it's even more cool if you are able of tracking the person who wore it.
When you say it slados28, it seems legit. And thanks again, it was a plessure dealing with you!
one of my methods is to try and work out the name and then see later if it actually exists as a name. Pijolat does exist and is French in origin, see below. I don't know how many French surnames there are recorded in the German army but there must have been some.
The last three letters do look like DAT but it does look like a 'J' in the middle also.
Anyway, it's a tricky one, good luck!
Great Heer I think I need to get a 62 sometime soon
I have to admit I'm not seeing an i and a j but rather a slanted Ü , just like the slant of the rest of the lettering. Pretty sure the surname starts with an R as well...
I actually found several F Rudat/Rudal from Bavaria in ww1 rosters, no ww2 records that I can see so far though --- nothing on Pijolat (pretty certain that that's not correct anyway as I believe the first letter is an R not a P, as mentioned earlier). The process is half the fun either way, good luck!
Thanks, this was my first 62 actually and second NS, I like those shells. Is there some archives or authorities I can contact during this "project" if we can make out the name?
