You are bidding on an EXCEPTIONAL example of a WW2 German Luftwaffe Afrika Korps Armelband (Arm Band) and Documents! These all belonged to Unteroffizier Walter Menedetter who served with Fliegerhorstkommandantur (E) 20/VI! Formed on June 20, 29140, sadly, this uit was destroyed in Tunis in 1943.
Made of a soft tan machine embroidered “camel hair” material, this Cuff Title is in SUPERB condition! it is 100% ORIGINAL, and as mentioned, belonged to Uffz. Walter Menedetter. Features the word “Afrika” on the front, which is flanked by palm trees on each side. All braiding is a bright silver. The RARE features is that it includes the ORIGINAL Certificate, dated may 1943, signed by a Major. Also included are:
Certificate to 1939 War Merit Cross 2nd Class with swords. Issued on 15.12.1942.
Hitler Youth Membership Badge in gold with Certificate B-type. RZM “M1/120” maker marked. The pin was removed and a small hole was drilled, most likely to attach to a cap.
Ribbon bar to 1939 War Merit Cross 2nd Class with swords

As all items are over 75 years old, there are some marks and wear from use and age…however all details are clearly legible. A FANTASTIC addition to any collection or display!
