MEMEL and SPANISH CROSS AWARD DOCUMENTS GROUP
Very interesting and scarce document grouping belonged to Oberfunkmeister Günther Hoffmann. Hoffmann was a Legion Condor combatant.
The group is made of the following documents:
- Certificate to Spanish Cross in bronze. He served on board of the steamboat "August Schultze". The boat was chartered during the Spanish Civil War and adopted by the Kriegsmarine in 1939. The document is signed with a facsimile Adolf Hitler signature.
- Rare certificate to Memel Medal.
- Certificate to Minesweeper War Badge. Signed by Kapitän zur See Waldemar Winther (later Konteradmiral).
- Certificate to 1939 War Merit Cross 2nd Class with swords. Signed by Konteradmiral Ernst Lucht.
- Certificate to Kriegsmarine Long Service Award IV. Class.
Indeed a group of documents full of history.
