    Hi Guys, I hope you will forgive me putting this one here. Not strictly SS but given the story I think it fits in here perhaps best?

    Offizierheim Bergen Stainless Steel Alloy Serving Plate. 295mm in diameter. Maker marked "WMF Cromargan". The Officers Mess was situated 1.5km's from Bergen-Belsen Concentration Camp. The building was used by the British Army as a Hospital for victims from the camp. The plate was a war souvenir of a member of 63rd Anti Tank Regt Royal Artillery who's unit was one of the first to reach the camp. Same soldier who liberated the collar tab shown earlier. New to the market and coming up in my June 11th sale @bamfords.

    No, this one was taken by the soldier directly from Bergen-Belsen. Not been in a collection before and comes from his family. If you read online there are some accounts and photos of these marked items belonging to former victims of the KZ camp who picked them up in 1945.
