Default Hans-Joachim Merks's grouping

With the greatest pleasure, I would like to show you my latest purchase.
Awards grouping, documents and album of one of the latest awarded RK holders of ww2 Flottilenchef, 2. Räumbootsflottille Hans-Joachim Merks.
Further research started to gather all information about his military career, hope to uncover all the story behind.

First time in private collection!




















































Afrika cuff, BWB, WH4 years, Italian medals were added to the group to complete it once again.

The photography is smashing! Especially fond of the images with the reflections. Congratulations on acquiring such a fine grouping.
