(JRW5) A Very Rare 1st Pattern Bar to the Iron Cross in its rare 1st pattern Case.
The case has a lovely monogram to the lid that mimics the 1st pattern cross completely. The case is of black leatherette with rounded corners, opened by a nice magnetic push stud, and it has a magnetic hinge. When opened, the white undersilk lid is nice and clean although the silk hinge cover, which all too often happens, is split. The black base is of wood and was constructed so as can be seen by the scan. The bar itself is a nice resemblance to that shown on the lid, with the eagle's head identical to the picture. There are no markings to this bar that I can see, which is to be expected for a nice early patterned item. The badge is of superb quality and only the 2nd we have ever had in case. We feel this item will sell quickly due to the quality and rareity.




PK CAMERAMAN, is a unique in-depth photographic study of the German Wehrmacht (Armed Forces) during World War Two. Professionally photographed by German war correspondents of the Propaganda Kompanie (PK). This unique photo book series offers the enthusiast an up close look into the military life of the German soldier and the equipment he used during the Second World War. February 1944 in the Belgian town of Eeklo. Assembled on the cobblestones of the market square is a platoon of newly issued Marder IIIs of 1. Kompanie, Panzerjäger Abteilung 19 (L) of Luftwaffen Feld- Division 19. Freshly painted in ordinance tan and armed with the potent 7.5cm Pak 40 anti-tank gun, these small yet rugged fighting vehicles project a formidable image. A highly decorated German Army Hauptman conducts an inspection of the unit, conversing with the crews as they check their communication equipment and other gear. With their special field-gray Panzer uniforms adorned with an assortment of medals and badges, these veterans of the Eastern Front are the very picture of confidence and professionalism. When the commanding officer completes his review, 1. Kompanie proceeds out of Eeklo into the countryside en route to its next posting at the former Belgian Army barracks in Zedelgem where it joins-up with 2. and 3. Kompanie of Pz.Jg.Abt. 19 (L). These two units consist of Luftwaffe troops equipped with halftrack-towed 7.5cm Pak 40s and car-towed 2cm Flak 38s. Wearing a mixture of Luftwaffe blue-grey and camouflage uniforms, these troops lack the combat decorations and seasoned demeanor of the Marder III crewmen, but nevertheless manage to convey an impression of discipline and determination. The Abteilung's activities have been staged especially for the camera of Kriegsberichter (KB, war correspondent) Karl Kurth of Propaganda Kompanie 698 who has been assigned to photograph the Atlantic Wall defenses. Accompanied by a newsreel cameraman, whose footage is destined to appear in a March '44 episode of Die Deutsche Wochenschau, Kurth's objective is to assure the German home front of the Wehrmacht's ability to repel the anticipated Allied invasion. Being masters of their trade, these professional propagandists are able to transform an unexceptional late-war formation into a superior fighting force through the art of composition, juxtaposition and the editorial process.
