  1. Thanks. Yes, I also found the Westair owl of Athens / Minerva references. The closest I have been able to find is this Greek air force officers cap badge: Which has a number of similarities but doesn't explain where my badge fits in. I translated the text in Google translate and it's just the manufacturers details: ΚΑΠΝΟΒΙΟΜΗΧΑΝΙΑ ΙΔΡΥΘΕΙΣΑ ΤΩ 1899 ΕΝ ΑΘΗΝΑΙΣ Ν.ΜΑΡΓΑΡΙΤΗ TOBACCO INDUSTRY ESTABLISHED IN 1899 IN ATHENS N. MARGARITI Not sure how tobacco industry comes into it but that could just be due to wartime changes of use.

  2. While stationed near Baumholder germany in the late 70's, I found a tie box and a glove box made from plywood with Nazi emblems, kragen and handschuhe cut out with a scroll saw. I asked my landlord about the boxes, he said the house used to be a school during WWII and that the students made the boxes in shop for soldiers. They are in pretty bad shape. A hinge is missing on one and they are a bit warped. I am curious if there are any others or if there is any value to the boxes.

  4. Or it may be an item... The '538' is the month and year of issue, 5/38 or May of 1938, the RADBA M/L is the Reichs Arbeits Dienst Bekleidungsamt Marburg/ Lahn ( RADAB is the issuance quality control depot) and the A.D. Abt of 6/334 is Arbeitsgau XXXIII Alpenland, Gruppe 334 Salzburg, Abt 6/334 Neumarkt 1938. I look forward to what we can sort out.. G

  5. Although I can't read Sutterlin Script (Suetterlin script:a script, created by the Berlin graphic artist Ludwig Sütterlin (1865-1917), which was taught from 1915 to 1941 in German schools. ) I have many in our group that can decipher on some occasion. We can also discuss ranks and locations based on photos as well. Arbeitsgau XXXVII Sudetenland-West, Gruppe 373 Brillin, Abt. 6/373 Fleyn im Erzgebirge No Honor name information, Rank Truppfuhrer..

  6. Can anyone identify this badge that I found in my fathers belongings? I believe that it is WW2 and Greek, possibly air-force, but have not been able to find any trace of anything remotely similar anywhere.

  7. I just did a small google search, the Owl could be the "Athenian Owl' like in the Greek myths, the closest I came was this, I believe it had to do with the Greek elections after the war. The reverse of your badge strongly resembles the writing on the left side of this patch. What I would suggest is to contact a local Greek Heritage Society in your hometown and see if they can translate the writing on your example as that would point you in a better direction IMO..

  9. Hello Adam, When I go to France and visit the "Vide Greniers" boot sales they are many kinds of WW2 German daggers for sale, either lost, left behind or swapped for wine and food. But I had a chance to buy the same as you have 10 years ago in a small village boot fair in La Gorche - Aubenas, for 150 Euros complete with scabbard and in excellent condition....but I decided to put my money into an original WW2 Sten Gun ( Dropped to the SOE and FFI by parachutage) for 500Euros, and I have fired it...Superb! Now I wish that I have bought the dagger as well, but if customs at Dover had fou
