    Thanks for posting! Some nice awards there. Can you post some close up shots of the Gold Verwundetenabzeichen and the case please? I would also like to see some of the marked '27' EK2. These had two types of frame.

    Here are the Requested pictures.

    GWB History, I will not say the vet name as of right now because I do not have permission. I respect the lady, I will post the name if she would ok it or don’t care.

    Basically He was an officer in the infantry. I'm not fairly certain of the Division, but i think it was the 9th ID. I will confirm that soon when I will talk to her.

    There are two likely ways he got it (what i was told).
    He could have traded it with another GI (another little story there to that I have been told). Or...
    He was also in charge of the P.O.W's and equipment that fell in his unit. (It is know he took stuff from them. like lot of the GIs)

    Enjoy and thanks

    If better pictures needed let me know i will try again.
