RARE: For Sale - Bismarck Wehrpass (Killed in Action)

It isn't often that Wehrpässe to members of Bismarck's crew come on the market. In the 27 years I have been collecting this is only the 5th I have seen. This sailor was assigned to the Bismarck on 1st July 1940 and is reported as 'Missing' by the authorities on 27th May 1941. Wehrpass also mentions ...

Re: AltaFjord, KaaFjord and LangFjord

Great thread, as are all the Fjord related ones. Having just received a Soldbuch to a member of the Flak ship 'Thetis' it has a handful of photos and I was wondering if anyone can confirm the location. Unfortunately it has no writing on the back but the mountain in the background seems to bear a res...

Re: Floating Flak Battery 'Thetis' & Tirpitz

Many thanks for that Antonio - they are great threads and the first thread does show an image of where Thetis was berthed ahead of Tirpitz, but as of yet I have not been able to find any image/chart that actually shows the position of Thetis in relation to Tirpitz when she was at Sørbotn.

Re: Floating Flak Battery 'Thetis' & Tirpitz

Awfully sporting of the Jerries to paint a torpedo aim-point on the side of their battleship for us. :D http://www.bismarck-class.dk/tirpitz/miscellaneous/tirpitz_kaafjord_then_and_now/pictures/03_tp_kaafjord_then_now.jpg Or they are just reminding themselves where the water is! Thanks for the addi...

Floating Flak Battery 'Thetis' & Tirpitz

I'm not sure of the correct section to place this request so if it is in the wrong place please feel free to move it to the correct one. I have a Soldbuch to a crewman of the Schwimmende Flakbatterie 'Thetis' which was used to protect the anchorage at Kåfjord and especially Tirpitz. I have seen an i...

Re: SS Concentration Camp Wehrpass

Before anyone thinks of buying this item please be aware that it is NOT a genuine KZ related Wehrpass. It is a genuine (and cheap) run-of-the-mill Wehrpass to an old man but ALL of the entries relating to the Concentration Camps are post-war fake entries.
