Item Sixth plate ambrotype by famed Richmond photographer Charles Rees. This rebel officer sits dressed in a service jacket with the rank of 2nd lieutenant.
Matching blue trousers with a wide seam running down the trouser leg. His slouch cap rests on the table with the brim pinned up with a 5 pointed star. More than likely one of the handful of Texas regiments of Hood's Brigade that were assembled in Richmond during the summer of including the famed 1st Texas Infantry. This one did in fact come out of Kaufman, Texas so his ties to a Texas regiment during the early stages of the war are highly probable.
This one is unsigned by Rees but has all of his hallmarks. Item Killer ninth plate ambortype! More than likely this dashing soldier was a member of the 1st or 2nd Virginia Cavalry. There are several known views attributed to these units dressed exactly in this same manner. Early on Virginia subscribed the the U. Army's uniform regulations consisting of dark blue uniforms and Hardee hats. This cavalryman is wearing the Hardee hat of all Hardee hats!
This one is inscribed behind the image inside the case "Staunton ". Beautiful view of this reb cavalryman! Item Absolutely killer ninth plate ambrotype of a North Carolina rebel troop. He is unidentified however that is a back drop associated with North Carolina. This soldier sits dressed in a grey jacket of very light construction. The jacket is trimmed in a light blue tape which runs down the front of the jacket, along the cuffs and collar with dual, pointed breast pockets.
He is armed with a comb which he has tucked into his breast pocket and a rather intimidating Bowie knife. A rather dashing looking fellow with his bowler style felt cap with one side pinned up what was probably a North Carolina button turned into a hat pin.
Item Simply beautiful sixth plate ruby ambrotype of a Federal cavalry trooper seated with his young daughter. Dressed in his cavalry jacket he cradles the child in his lap while she grasps onto his finger.
Perhaps as a reminder for her later in life should he not return. Absolutely pristine view of this steely eyed horse soldier. In a short matter of time he would be engaged in the life and death struggle of war yet here he displays the delicate touch of a loving father to his young child. Wonderful and poignant view.
Item Extremely rare Confederate Recipe Book. Not to many of these left. There are a total of 28 pages bound in dotted wallpaper. There are a number of helpful tips included and instructions on how to make "Confederate candles". Instructions on how to make medical remedies, a number of beer recipes, how to substitute acorns for use in making coffee, instructions for making catsup, apple pie without the apples and how to make bread rise without using yeast to name a few. One of my favorites are instructions on how to cure a felon.
To cure thirst while on the march it instructs soldiers to put a couple coffee beans in the mouth. Quite an interesting piece and incredibly rare! Item Outstanding pair of sixth plate ruby ambrotypes of a couple of good ole Tennessee boys. These originated out of the same estate and I would presume they are brothers based on the similar facial appearance.
The first image shows an officer dressed in the blue uniform issued to Tennessee state troops early in He is dressed in wonderful new blue jacket with cuff trim and his M sword belt plate worn. This is probably one of the most exceptional ambrotypes I have ever seen. The quality is phenomenal. The second image shows an infantryman dressed in this grey frock and matching grey trousers with a black stripe down the trouser seem.
He wears a simple frame buckle and his cartridge box with the breast plate removed. You can see the two slits in the sling where the breast plate was attached at one time.
He's armed with a imported French musket and wears this great felt slouch cap. The image of the officer is simply identified behind the case with the initials "E. Initial research has found only one officer from Tennessee serving which matches those initials. Edward would fight at Shiloh and later be wounded and captured at Perryville.
He would be swapped in a prisoner exchange at Vicksburg. He would go on to survive the war. Edward was accompanied in the fight by his brother James Franklin Pate who served in the 19th Tennessee Infantry beginning in June, Coincidentally members of the 19th Tennessee are known to have been wearing this exact uniform during the spring of They are also known to have been outfitted with a mix of converted muskets including French muskets like the one he holds here.
The 19th Tennessee was also comprised from a number of men belonging to Meigs County. The very same county in which the Pate's were living at that time. I couldn't locate much information on James service however after his initial enlistment. It is known that the family gave away a number of items pertaining to Elam several years ago.
His Southern Cross of Honor was found in a flea market not long ago. Superb image grouping that warrants further research. Both of these are housed in leatherette cases with a lock of hair behind each. Item Absolutely outstanding carte view of officers from the 19th Kentucky Infantry taken in camp. This would be at their encampment in Baton Rouge where they returned after the dismal failure of the Red River Campaign.
They would remain here until being ordered back to Louisville for the purpose of being mustered out of service. Wonderful view of this encampment which looks to be within the town itself. The regiment remained here from May, until January, You can see numerous canvas tents with a white picket fence and more building's further to the rear.
The large tent to the left looks to be possibly the mess hall. A number of muskets are stacked in the foreground along with the national and regimental colors. Off to the right are 8 officers from the regiment. The gentleman seated to the far left is General Albert Lindey Lee. Seated in the center is the colonel of the regiment Colonel William Jennings Landram who would receive a brevet to brig-general in March of I'm not sure who the other officers are but a little investigating could probably turn up the id's of most of them.
Very nice tinting to this one with the flags and even then leaves on the tree's colored. Nice period ink id on the front of the page. This came from the personal album Nimrod Hendren who served as a corporal with the regiment. Just a killer carte view that I highly doubt you will ever find another of! Item Interesting carte view of a number of men and officers grouped around the opening to a large tent.
This one is identified on the reverse in old period pencil as having been taken on Morris Island on October 6, In the center is a young man seated at a large field desk full of papers and ledgers and everything else one would expect to see. What's really neat is just above his head resting on top of the desk is a cased hard image of an officer holding his sword in front of him! He sits with pen in hand some report or other type of dictation. To his right an officer stands reading a book while being flanked by a sergeant.
To the far left stands a soldier with some type of document held in his hand while another officer stands staring off into the distance. Each of the men has a corresponding number below him but there is no key identifying the men.
An old period pencil id on the reverse reads, "home operations office Morris Island October 6, " Rare and wonderful view. Back marked by Brady. Item Extremely nice carte view of General Marsena Patrick and staff photographed in Culpeper, Virginia sometime in September, Marsena was serving as Provost Marshall at the time. You can see the general seated in the center with his cap resting on his knee surrounded by his staff.
General Marsena was tasked with the large number of Confederate prisoners after the Battle of Gettysburg. Very nice view and seldom seen. This one is back marked by Gardner. Item Beautiful sixth plate tintype identified as Richard H. Richard's service originally started in the 7th Battalion Confederate Cavalry. That unit was later merged and became the 16th North Carolina Cavalry in the summer of They were active skirmishing with Federal troops in the eastern part of North Carolina and the vicinity of the James River.
They were also active during the Appomattox Campaign in which Richard would be captured. Richard would fall into enemy hands at Dinwiddie Court house just 11 days before Lee's surrender at Appomattox. Richard is dressed here in a Richmond Dept Type II jacket with the wooden buttons and a matching grey cap. The image is identified inside the case with his name and regiment info. This one is absolutely pristine and crystal clear. All around beautiful image! Item Sixth plate ambrotype identified as John W.
Helms of Floyd, Virginia serving with the 24th Virginia Infantry. A former barkeeper, Helms mustered with Co. A known as the "Floyd Rifleman" in mid May, Sent to Lynchburg, Virginia on the 14th of May the men would be mustered into service for the term of one year while at Camp Davis which was located at the fairgrounds on Fifth Street two miles west of Lynchburg. He would serve a mere 4 months before being hospitalized at the Confederate General Hospital located at Charlottesville, Virginia with typhoid fever.
Helms would remain hospitalized until December, 18th before returning to his unit. On the 10th of May of that following year Helms would receive a promotion to 3rd sergeant.
That August, he would find himself on the field of battle at 2nd Manassas fighting in Kemper's Brigade. He would be wounded here on the 29th although the nature of that wound is unknown. Presumably the wound was slight as by October he is shown present for duty. Helms and the rest of the 24th spent the first part of recovering from the previous year's campaigns doing picket duty in parts of Virginia and North Carolina.
That would all change of the 24th of June when the regiment packed up and headed north for what would become the wars most famous engagement. The Battle of Gettysburg. Here they would earn immortality on July 3rd as they marched across an open field which came to be known as Pickett's Charge. They would form the extreme right of Pickett's line taking and took a pummeling from Federal artillery positioned on Little Round Top.
Despite taking terrible casualties members of the 24th were one of the few to actually reach the wall and make it over the top. They however paid the price losing men during the failed attempt including Helms himself who was wounded during the charge. He would be sent home on furlough to recover from the wound and would not return until January of Near the end of February, Helms would transfer into Co.
After his transfer his records go cold but he is shown on the rolls dated April 15, Helms is shown here dressed in a Richmond Depot Type II jacket with a black felt slouch cap resting on his knee. A pencil inscription written behind the image reads, "My Eliza??? Keep this in remembrance of me J. Eliza was John's sister and in turn below the inscription she penciled "Yes I will my brother boy". This one does come housed in a full leatherette case along with his service records.
Item Beautiful ninth plate ruby ambrotype of an unidentified member of the Mount Vernon Guards which would become the 17th Virginia Infantry in June, The company letter "D" pinned to the front of this individuals cap indicates that he belonged to "The Fairfax Rifles" which composed Co. D of the 17th Virginia. Dulany in December, and were attached to the 60th Regiment Virginia Militia.
On April 25, they were under the command of of Lieutenant William A. Barnes and moved to the barracks located on Prince Street near Fairfax Street. The 17th Virginia would go on to see action in no less than 24 engagements. From Bull Run to Appomattox and every where in between. Of the men present for duty on June 30, only 46 would remain at their surrender at Appomattox. Only 4 men out of 76 would remain out of the Fairfax Rifles. This Johnny is dressed in a grey triple breasted frock with a plastron fronted shirt.
The front is adorned with 3 rows of large eagle buttons with the same buttons present on the collar as well. Striped cuff trim can be seen just poking out under the mat. There is a photo attributed to the Mount Vernon Guards published in More Confederate Faces in which the subject is dressed in this identical uniform. Rare view of this Virginia regiment housed in a half leatherette case. Item Wonderful quarter plate mealinotype of this Federal soldier posed with his trusty mount.
Beautiful clarity to this one. He stands along the horse in this view holding it by the bridle while intently staring into the lens. It's interesting that the photographer appears to have been higher than the subject he was photographing and is looking down on him. The soldier stands in muddy boots with a simple sack coat and a pork pie cap.
He does wear a holstered revolver on his hip as well. Great view of that McClellan saddle resting on the horses back. In the back ground you can see a make shift fence with what appears to be a mattress draped over it and a small structure of some sort. This one is really sharp. It comes in a half leatherette case. Item Absolutely wonderful quarter plate ambrotype of two Confederate artilleryman from one of the Virginia Heavy Artillery batteries.
I don't believe I have ever seen a pair of rebs posed in this manner before. It is certainly a unique and spectacular view. These two good time Charlie's sit dressed in grey double breasted frocks and trousers trimmed in red. One of the men has his cap resting in his lap with the letters "H A" pinned to the top. Unfortunately the numerical designation cannot be seen. The two sit each holding a glass full of wine with one of the men wrapping his arm around his fellow cohort preparing to top off his glass from a bottle.
We see this type of scene played out often in images of Federal troops but I can't recall ever seeing such an example of Confederate troops doing so. Very unique content for sure. One of the men has an "X" scratched into the emulsion above his head.
I would presume this was an indication he may not have survived the war. Unfortunately neither of the men are identified. Rare and wonderful gem! Item Fantastic carte view of Federal officers enjoying some refreshments outside of Petersburg. The men sit around a table with a number of bottles of alcohol resting on it's top and 3 glasses which are each half full.
A pipe can also be seen laying on the table. Two of the men are relaxed in their chairs with their feet kicked up on a makeshift foot stool. A colored servant stands next to the table appearing to be in the process of popping the cork on another bottle of booze.
As if the three bottles already on the table aren't enough. Seige work can be boring work apparently. Obviously these men were enjoying a much better time than their counterparts within the city.
An old pencil inscription on the reverse identifies the scene "Taken behind yankee lines at Petersburg, VA". This one is by Brady. Item Absolutely killer carte view! This one is labeled on the reverse in old period pencil as "Fortifications of Washington". I believe this may more accurately be members of the 4th New York Heavy Artillery taken at Fort Corcoran near Arlington Heights during the early part of The scene shows a six man crew standing ready at their gun with an officer leaning up against the powder shelter.
The gun itself is a pounder. The two forward gunners stand at the front of the gun ready to run the sponge down the gun's bore. Towards the rear of the gun you can see the two rear gunners with their handspikes in the correct "at rest" pose. The one standing on the far side of the gun has a white canvas pouch worn over his shoulder.
I would assume it's probably the tube pouch which contained the friction-tubes and lanyards. The chief gunner stands at the rear of the gun in the act of stopping the vent. You can see he is wearing the gunners pouch as it is supposed to be on the right hip.
The soldier at the far rear of the cannon probably had the job of fetching the cartridges from the powder magazine which the officer at left is resting against. This one is just a tad larger than your normal sized cdv.
Wonderful view and by Brady no less. Item Beautiful sixth plate ambrotype of a Federal cavalryman dressed in a brand spanking new uniform. Wonderful clarity to this image. I would assume this trooper was just outfitted with the new uniform and made a beeline straight to the photographer. He sits gazing out with piercing blue eyes and holding a stunning Hardee hat which rests in his lap.
Cavalry insignia pinned to the front with the hat badge holding up the brim on one side and an ostrich plume on the other. Simple yet a very poignant view. This one does have the convex cover glass which you very seldom see. Item Pretty sweet carte view.
This is from the Brady Album Gallery series. It does still retain the original printed caption sticker on the reverse. Identified as being a 12 pound howitzer captured by members of the 17th New York during the Battle of Hanover Court House. This was captured from Captain Latham's rebel battery. You can actually see Latham's name written on the ammunition chest.
This is really a great view. It's taken in camp with dozens of tents in the back ground. There is so much going on in this view. A small company of men stands guard along side the caisson. A number of other men and officers stands looking on dressed in various manners. It's really a great study of how these men actually looked in the field.
I don't think there are two that are dressed alike. This is one of the harder views to find from this series. Really a superb view! Item Beautiful id tag belonging to Charles W. Kopke of the 24th New York Volunteer Cavalry. Charles enlisted with Co. D in late December, when the regiment was organized at Auburn, New York. Kopke would serve along side two of his brothers who also served in the 24th.
At Petersburg the 24th suffered some of the most severe losses of any regiment engaged losing losing 38 killed, wounded and another 3 missing. Prior to that they had just lost another 84 at Cold Harbor. They would go on to fight in a dozen or more engagements before it was all said and done including the Appomattox Campaign. How Charles and both his brothers managed to all survive unscathed is a miracle. Charles would serve for another month before mustering out on August 19, This is an exceptional example.
The opposite side features a bust of Abraham Lincoln. The other is stamped "CHA's W. Very, very nice tag! Item Probably two of the rarest and most exceptional carte views I have ever had the pleasure to have in.
This is a matching pair of George and Martha Washington views. Lee, Miss Mary Custis Lee. Both have been hand tinted in vivid colors using water colors and colored pencil. They are both hand signed on the reverse by Mary Custis and were taken from the original oil portraits which hung at Mount Vernon and later at Arlington.
The view of Mary was taken from the oil portrait which was painted by John Wollaston in This portrait now hangs in the Lee Chapel and Museum. The view of Washington was taken from the painting by Rembrandt Peale done in This is the earliest known view of Washington showing him dressed in his colonel's uniform while serving with the Virginia Regiment during the French and Indian Wars.
This painting is also now held at the Lee Chapel. Both views are back marked by the famed Lee Gallery of Richmond and carry this red white and blue hallmark in brilliant color reminiscent of the Confederate flag. The view of Martha is inscribed in period ink, "Martha Washington from an original portrait by Wollastan that hung first at Mt. Vernon then at Arlington". The back of George's view reads, "George Washington from an original portrait in the provincial uniform by Rembrandt Peale".
Each view is then sign by Mary. Quite possibly one of a kind views. Certainly rare at the very least! There is so much going on in this image you really have to just sit down and examine it.
These are probably members of the 2nd Ohio Heavy Artillery of which Henry was a member during the war. The center piece is this large cannon completely covered in buckeye's. I believe that is probably Henry standing at the rear of the cannon as he wears a bowler hat covered in buckeyes and wielding a hatchet! All of them men are wearing a GAR badge pinned to their jackets. Snare drummers lounge on the ground off to the left holding their drum sticks with one gentleman wearing sunglasses!
Muskets are stacked directly in front of the cannon with cartridge boxes hung from the bayonets. One veteran sits in the front with a sword in his hand while the bass drummers are off to the right.
There are two small signs on the cannon. The one I can't read. The other looks to say Basil, Just a super cool cabinet card of these buckeye veterans! Item I absolutely love this image! Ninth plate ruby ambrotype of Chaplain Charles Babbidge. The chaplain would see service with the 6th Massachusetts Infantry where he served for a 3 month term before mustering in with the 26th Massachusetts.
At 54 Charles was serving as a pastor at the Unitarian Church in Pepperell, Massachusetts when war came. As men from all around the state were quickly answering the call to arms, Babbidge himself would become the first clergyman called into actual service for the war effort. Just 10 days after the firing on Fort Sumter he would be commissioned into the 6th Massachusetts. The 6th would later be fired upon as they tried to navigate through Baltimore on their way to Washington during the famous Baltimore Riots.
He would serve a 3 month term and be discharged in August of In November he would once again join the ranks. This time with the 26th Massachusetts where he would serve a 3 year term. His services were no doubt called upon during his tenure there. He strikes this interesting "sleeping" pose in this view. Dressed in his early grey Massachusetts uniform and wearing this wonderful tri-corner cap, he sits with arms folded and eyes closed giving the impression of taking a peaceful nap.
There is another known view of him taken during this same sitting where he is holding the same pose except he is looking skyward. His engraved revolver which was sold by James Julie Auctions in is also out there somewhere. There are two small period notes affixed to the velvet pad which identify the chaplain and date the image to Extremely unique and interesting view.
It does come housed in a full thermoplastic case. Item Wonderful carte view of two Federal officers enjoying a nip of refreshments. The two men are William B. Arnold and Lieutenant Jonathon C. Kingsley of the 86th Illinois Infantry. Arnold stands next to a seated Kingsley holding a half full glass in his hand while Lieutenant Kingsley himself grips a brown glass flask in his lap.
Arnold would be discharged from the 86th on January 23rd, That same day he would be mustered into the Mississippi Marine Brigade which was just being formed. The unit consisted of no more than men and officers which operated a total of 9 small, lightly armored vessels which were fitted with rams. The men acted as Marines but under the jurisdiction of the army rather than the navy. They worked patrolling the Mississippi River seeing action at Richmond, Louisiana and in the bombardment of Vicksburg among others.
Arnold would finally be discharged in February, Lieutenant Kingsley would serve his entire term with the 86th Illinois seeing his fair share of action as well at such places as Buzzards Roost, Kennesaw Mountain, Peachtree Creek and several others.
He would be discharged in June, This one does have an ink signature on the back by Arnold. It then has in period pencil "W Arnold standing Lt. Kingsley sitting Alexandria, Va Probably not to many views floating around attributed to the Mississippi Marine Brigade. No back mark on this one. Item Rare carte view of Almon D. Griffin of the famed 1st U. His enlistment began on November 11, serving as a musician. F of the 1st United States Sharpshooters.
He would serve with that unit until March 22, when he is reported as having deserted the unit. Mead of the company noted in his diary on the 23rd of March that he written out a statement in regards to Griffin's court martial case. Whatever the nature of the case or the reason for the desertion I do not know but that following March Almon returned to Co. Two months later he would be wounded at Chancellorsville on May, 4th.
He would survive and return to the unit only to be wounded once again at Cold Harbor on June 12, Almon would survive that wound as well but his time it was serious enough to earn a discharge for disability in October, This one is hand signed in period ink across the front bottom by Almon.
It is back marked out of Philadelphia. Most likely it was taken during one of his hospital stays while recovering from one of the wounding's. It is slightly trimmed along the top but I do not think it effects the overall awesomeness of this view! This is a copy from a period hard image but the content is phenomenal. He sits with the child resting on one leg and his saber on the other with a big grin on his face. I think the image itself and the look on his face speaks volumes. An old pencil inscription on the reverse reads, "Civil War soldier who brought back a negro orphan.
This one is back marked out of Seneca Falls, New York. I would love to know where the original image is now located if it is even still in existence. Phenomenal view and quite possibly the only one you will ever see! Item Outstanding carte view of General Robert E. You will be hard pressed to find another of these. This one carries the very desirable Lee Gallery imprint which was located in Richmond.
Vignette profile view of Lee. This particular view was hand tinted by Lee's wife Mary Custis Lee. She would do these on occasion for various charity events and friends. She also signed the front of the card with a likeness of Lee's own signature. In this example she has tinted his cheeks red and tinted his hair and beard a blueish grey. This one is a pristine example.
Extremely rare piece of work by Mary Custis Lee! Item Drop dead beautiful early war ninth plate melainotype. Exceptional example of an infantry musician. He's dressed in this dark blue jacket with cloth shoulder straps.
Most likely hailing from the state of Michigan. The front is adorned with this beautifully tinted light blue herring bone trim which extends up to the collar. Wearing his cap with infantry insignia on the front. This is really a very sharp looking image so somebody better snatch it up quick before I decide to keep it. It housed with this patriotic matting and comes in a full patriotic leatherette case with the American flag embossed on the front.
One of the wars great cavalry leaders. He was a thorn in the side of Sherman during his Georgia Campaign all the way up until he reached Raleigh. Wheeler would also serve as a U. Representative for the state of Alabama. This is a wonderful view of Wheeler dressed in the double breasted frock which he is most associated with.
Back marked by Anthony. Item Superb ninth plate tintype of a North Carolina tarheel! Dressed in the classic North Carolina six button, gray sack coat with black epaulettes specified by the North Carolina adjutant general in A Colt M pocket revolver is displayed across his chest with the hammer cocked. This one has a pencil id inside the case with the name H.
These guy's saw a lot of action in some of the hottest fights of the war. After receiving news of the surrender at Appomattox the men disassembled their guns and burned the carriages after they buried the cannons themselves.
The majority of the men from the regiment were never officially paroled. That doesn't seem to be the case with Henry. At some point he must have been captured but where I'm not sure. Two days later he was transferred to Philadelphia and he appears to disappear after that. Regardless and superb and beautiful view! This one comes in a full case but with a split spine. Item Wonderful quarter plate tintype of a Federal cavalryman posed with trusty old mount.
This bearded cavalryman stands in front of his mount holding him by the reins. Great shot taken in camp. You can see tents in the back ground along with boxes and other indistinguishable items laying about. There's a large pile of pine branches with other rubbish all piled up directly behind the horse.
Those cavalry boots look damn near to being waders and he sports this great Hardee hat with a feather plume. The horse has been tinted brown and the image is so clear you can see the matted hair on the horses side where the cavalryman's legs are constantly rubbing. Slight red tint to the horizon in the back grand as well. Really a wonderful view. There is some minor crazing in the upper right hand corner but it's very minimal.
This one comes framed in a period wall mount wood frame. This one looks super nice. Really a great view! This view was taken in when Turner was a 2nd lieutenant serving in the Marine Corps. Serving in the Pacific in he resigned his commission on June 25, after he hopped aboard a packet boat bound for New York.
Making his way to his home state of Virginia he offered his services to the Confederacy and took a commission in the Confederate States Marine Corps as a 1st lieutenant on July 31, He would be initially assigned to recruiting duties in Wilmington, Richmond and Mobile. A promotion to captain came in early December, His time spent recruiting new soldiers was briefly interrupted when he served as a volunteer aide to his uncle, Major General "Prince John" Magruder during the Seven Days battle.
Afterwards he returned to his duties working in the recruitment office. The boredom which came with the inactivity of desk service got the better of him. While in Richmond he partook in an excessive amount alcohol and was charged with drunkenness. As a result it cost him his commission and he was dismissed from the Corps in December, Determined to prove his worth as a soldier he made his way to Chattanooga where he enlisted as a private in Co.
B of the 1st Kentucky Cavalry in January, George's sister, Henrietta, in the meantime had been petitioning Confederate Secretary of War, James Seddon and Jefferson Davis to give George a reprieve and reinstate his commission.
After personally delivering two petitions to Davis himself she was successful in her attempt and Turner was granted a commission to captain beginning on May 2, Looking to prove himself he quickly impressed his superiors and by November he had been assigned to the staff of General J.
Kelly who was commanding a division in Joe Wheeler's Cavalry Corps. General Kelly and Major General Wheeler were so impressed by Turner's actions on the battlefield that both endorsed his request to be reinstated to the Marine Corps. Wheeler himself specifically asked that he "be reinstated as a reward for gallantry and valuable service". During his service he would be wounded 3 times.
Once on July 5, While fighting in the during the Atlanta Campaign he found time to slip behind enemy lines and marry Anna Keller of Courtland, Alabama in July of Anna would later become a cousin to American icon Helen Keller. Turner would serve until the end of the war when he surrendered and received a parole serving as a lieutenant colonel on Wheeler's staff.
In he was awarded the Southern Cross of Honor. He would live for another 2 years before finally passing on June 29, This view shows him while serving with the Marine Corps.
Anchors are clearly visible on the buttons which adorn his jacket and you can see the outline of possibly a diary, bible or some other small book which is stuck into an interior pocket. This one comes with a boatload of research and documentation. Wonderful and rare view housed in a half case.
Item Pretty killer sixth plate ruby ambrotype. Early war view of this reb. He's dressed in this very ruff spun grey battle shirt and matching grey trousers.
The shirt sports two large pockets on the front. One of them is bulging with whatever he has stuffed in there. What's really interesting is the silk Sicilian style cap he is wearing. It's sort of a mix between a forage cap and Sicilian cap.
The initials "OR" are actually sewn to the front of the cap with several small stars below that. This style cap was popular among a number of Virginia regiments. Company L of the 39th Virginia Infantry was known as the Onancock Rifles however there were a number of other units from Mississippi, Georgia, Florida and Louisiana that also shared the same initials. What state he actually hails from I couldn't say. Great view however you look at it.
It's housed in a full leatherette case. Item Beautiful sixth plate early war melainotype of a Confederate lieutenant colonel. Dressed in this magnificent frock trimmed in gold edging. He wears two metal stars on either side of his collar and colonels shoulder boards. His cap rests on the table beside him heavily adorned in gold braid. Unfortunately I have not yet been able to identify him but he looks to be someone of prominence with some influential background.
The image itself is absolutely pristine. Wonderful blue tinting to the table cloth as well as his red sash. Just an all around beautiful image. A little research my turn up his identity. Beautiful image housed in a full thermoplastic case. Item Beautiful quarter plate tintype! Father and son both serving in the Union army posed together.
The father with his hand resting on his sons shoulder. I think those of us with children of our own have a better sense of the bond which these two share here. The father has a tintype which hangs from the button of his blouse of a women in a large hoop dress. I can only assume that it is his wife and the mother to his son. Really a superb and moving image and it is absolutely flawless. Unfortunately their names are not known. Housed in a half leatherette case.
Item Sixth plate ambrotype of a very disheveled looking reb armed with a rare Hall carbine. This is only the second image I have ever had of a reb armed with this particular carbine. Really great shot of this weapon in this view. He's dressed in this very unusual frock that appears to be made from white canvas.
Very thin material with what appear to be coin buttons. Now the last reb image I had in with a Hall carbine was identified out of Texas and I would say based on this guy's dress that is also a very good possibility in this case. He's got a good sized side knife in the scabbard hanging from his waist as well. Not too often you see reb images armed with carbines. This one does come housed in a full leatherette case with the nice plush emerald green velvet.
Item Killer ninth plate tintype of a member of the North Carolina Troop. Dressed in the early state issue grey sack coat with black shoulder straps identifying him as a member of an infantry unit. This Tar Heel is identified Charles L.
Charles would sign up with the unit in late May of It wasn't until the end of July that enough recruits had enlisted to form a company. They were assigned to the 12th North Carolina but were redesignated the 22nd 3 months later. Posed here Charles displays a large clip-point Bowie knife while sporting a newly issued North Carolina sack coat.
The 22nd would serve in the Army of Northern Virginia and participate in every major battle in which the army fought. Charles is shown as "present or accounted for" as late as October, After that any trace of him vanishes.
There is no record of him post war either in census reports or anywhere else which tends to make be believe he died at some point during his service. This image along with several others was purchased from the family in That year it was also published widely distributed Confederate Calendar for the month of April.
This one does come with a copy of that calendar as well as service records on Charles and a print out on the history of the 22nd. Just an all around superb image. Item Extremely rare and historically important view! If you saw the most recent issue of Military Images magazine you may recognize this view. Jonathan entered VMI in following in the footsteps of both his father and grandfather. By early Jonathan was the highest-ranking non-commissioned officer serving in the corps with the rank of sergeant major.
It was while holding that rank that he chose to pose for this photograph. On May 10, the cadets were aroused from their beds and issued orders to join Confederate forces near Stauton, Virginia.
A 70 mile march lay ahead of them and on May 11th the boys struck out for their destination. Confederate General John Breckinridge intended to stop their advance although heavily outnumbered. Breckinridge was hesitant to send the young men into battle despite their requests to allow them to do so. As the Battle of New Market began to unfold Breckinridge realized that he could not spare the boys any longer.
The order was given to form ranks. As the cadets marched out Woodbridge ran out in front of the main line some 40 paces ahead of the colors. While a gallant move it was also a foolish and dangerous decision in the face of a vastly superior enemy. He was quickly ordered back to the main line. Exploiting a gap in the enemy line where a Union battery had been mistakenly withdrawn the boys surged forward. Sigel's defense collapsed and withdrew after a 6 hour fight.
Despite the triumphant first showing they did not leave unscathed. For his action Johnathan would receive a promotion to Adjutant of the Corps of Cadets. They returned to Richmond and were reviewed by Jefferson Davis before striking out for Lexington. By the time they arrived however VMI had been shelled and burned by Federal forces. His whereabouts after that are for the most part unknown until April, when he appears on the rolls. The cadets were recalled to Richmond to help fill trenches.
Woodbridge and a number of other cadets instead chose to follow Lee's army towards Appomattox finally catching up with the men on April 8th. He however left before the surrender and headed on towards Lynchburg. He would return to VMI in mid graduating 10th in his class. Afterwards he moved north and settled in Chester, Pennsylvania working in the ship building business.
In Woodbridge commissioned an oil painting of the very view which now hangs in the Preston Library located at VMI. He would live to the ripe old age of 91 finally passing on May 23, The image itself has one prominent spot off to right and the spot you see up in the left hand corner is just an area where the photographer failed to apply any emulsion for whatever reason.
Truly an exceptional and historically important view. In mid October of , John would enlist with Co.
The 39th would eventually serve as Robert E. Lee's personal cavalry command working as scouts, guides and couriers. All told the unit was made up of 80 men and 1 officer so the rarity of this image goes without saying. During the Battle of Gettysburg, Willingham and other members would relay information back and forth between A. Hill's Corps and Lee's Headquarters. Some evidence even suggests that Willingham accompanied Capt. Johnson on his pre-dawn recon of Union lines on July 2nd.
After Lee's defeat and withdrawal back into Virginia, John would transfer into the 6th Virginia Cavalry in October of The following month he was reported as AWOL. Unbeknownst to his officers he had left the 6th Cavalry behind and joined up with Mosby's Rangers without proper authority. He would remain with the 43rd Battalion Virginia Cavalry under Mosby's command for the remainder of the war participating in a countless number of raids and engagements including the capture of Brig.
Stoughton who was captured sleeping in his bed! The 43rd never formally surrendered but disbanded on April 21, On the 24th John would however be paroled in Winchester after returning home. John is posed here on March 27th, while he was still serving as one of Lee's scouts.
He's dressed in this very plain grey frock and sporting a felt cap which he has molded the sides up on to his own liking. In his lap rests a Confederate K'ville sword which he has partially exposed from the scabbard. Inside the case is about as killer and rock solid of an id as you are going to find!
This one does come with complete service records for John as well as a first edition copy of the regimental history on the 39th Battalion Cavalry. Exceptional provenance and unbelievably rare view of a Confederate cavalryman that served in what is arguably the top two Confederate units to serve during the war!
Item This is a pretty killer cabinet card out of Reading, Pennsylvania displaying a number of artifacts. In the back ground are two heavily worn flags which if they bore any honors or identifications on them they had long since been torn away in battle at the time this photo was taken.
A haversack with a tin cup, canteen, sword and sash as well as an eagle waist belt all hang from the wall. This may be because the suspender broke, so now it has been made into a watch fob or pendant.
The medal itself is in very good condition and shows very little wear. If it did have its suspender and India bar, this would be a valuable medal.
We have all seen images in films etc of the armed guards usually perched on top of the trains, that were bursting full of passengers, in a time of great civil unrest in India.
This man probably went on to serve in the second world war, so a possible great research project. A superb little early 20th century Bowie knife, it has a good steel blade marked Made in Sheffield England on one side and William Rodgers on the other. It has a brass guard and a faux stag horn grip.
It comes in very good but well used condition and it only measures 7 inches long. It comes in a little handmade soft leather sheath with belt loop. Proof of age required on purchase. Post to UK only. This beautiful piece is in very good condition and comes fitted with a safety chain, would fit a slim to medium wrist.
Really, my pictures don't do justice to this lovely piece. Victorian Owl Pounce Pot. A delightful Victorian desk item, many mistake these as pepper pots, but they are in fact Pounce pots or sanders. They held a fine sand and when you had finished writing with you old quill or ink pen, it was sprinkled over the page, to stop the ink from blotting.
This one is made of old Pewter in the shape of a wise old owl with glass eyes. The head unscrews so you can refill your pot with pounce. It comes in lovely untouched condition, never polished and measures 3 inches high. Victorian Silver Vesta A scarce early silver vesta case with reeded decoration. A good maker of small items registered This vesta comes in great condition with just a small ding to one side and the top corners please see pictures it has a good tight hinge and it still retains its original jump ring, to attach it to a watch chain.
It measures 1 x 1. Solid bronze badge worn by the officers of the Essex regiment. I am sure this is a early WW1 officers Collar dog. It is in fine condition but the lugs have been professionally replaced by a pin.
It comes in excellent condition, unpolished and with a nice tone. It is the typical three-part construction, a silver frame with a magnetic iron core.
It comes in excellent condition original condition, with no loss to the original black finish on the core. The silver has now a dark tone and on the whole a lovely example of the famous German gallantry medal. If anyone knows this maker, please drop me a line for my own reference. A plated metal silver class Baden police honour badge. This one is the oval badge in plated metal made by Bruder Schneider, Wien.
It comes in good condition but there is some wear to the surface of the badge, losing some of the detail to the high points. On the back is a nice broad pin and both pin and catch are in very good condition. WW2 Reconnaissance Corps Cap badge. A WW2 war raised unit raised in January and disbanded August A good quality all brass badge which comes in excellent, but used condition. This one is in lovely condition and it is suspended from its original ribbon.
A mould for a 13mm lead bullet. Looks like a fairly modern used mould for old black powder guns. It comes in good usable condition.
The regiment were not fond of this badge because it proved too fragile due to its rather thin construction. It comes in near mint condition and made by J R gaunt London. As I am clearing a large collection of this series of cards, designs may vary slightly. Of a substantial size measuring 38mm in diameter and comes in a very good condition just one small ding to an edge on the front. This one comes in excellent original condition and with a nice even tone all over.
This medal as well as all my items, comes with a full money back guarantee of authenticity. Terms and conditions apply.
Lots may vary a little from picture but quantity the same. A wonderful example of this type of sword, issued just pre the Crimean war, this was the first sword that was issued to both light and heavy cavalry and when the pattern was issued to regular cavalry, these were mostly passed on to the yeomanry regiments. This one is in very good untouched condition and could do with a light clean, there are no major dings and dents to the scabbard and the blade is nice and clean; there are some markings on the guard but these are very difficult to make out and if original may have been cancelled out by the next regiment.
A good scarce sword in very collectable order. Martin Rochfort of the 22nd regiment, the Cheshire regiment. A good medal but with a later replaced suspender. The rim is a little knocked about so the naming is a little hard to read, but it is all still there. This medal was mounted at something, probably on a watch chain, so there is remains of silver at the 11 and 1 o-clock positions. The medal itself is in very good order, just wear to the high points.
A very easy restoration to get this interesting medal back to a valuable collectable. You can buy very good solid silver replacement suspender bars online. This man is also entitled to the Burma clasp, which shows he was involved in the third Anglo-Burma war of to ; this was a conflict that took place during November , with sporadic resistance and insurgency continuing into It was the final of three wars fought in the 19th century between the Burmese and the British.
It took place in a territory known as Upper Burma, the region of Lower Burma having already been annexed by the British in , as a result of the Second Anglo-Burmese War. This gave the British military its first taste of jungle warfare and only just over British took part, the rest of the force was made up from Indian Sepoys and the Royal Navy.
It has suffered some wear to the surface and both lugs on the back have been replaced. This one comes from my own collection and I had two new lugs put on some time ago so it could be worn on a shako.
This is not a perfect specimen but a perfect one would fetch a considerably higher price, as these plates are quite rare, worn on the last Shako issued to the British army. This one is a great gap filler to a collection or a super example if collecting on a budget.
Please see detailed pictures for condition. A heavy solid bronze star which was awarded by the Khedivate of Egypt, to those who had participated in the military campaigns in Egypt between and , and also for the military actions involving the British Army during the Anglo-Egyptian War, where recipients of the British Egypt Medal were also eligible for the Khedive's star.
There is a H Holden listed for the 38th coy Grenadier Guards for this period, but more research is needed if you want to pursue the naming. A superb example of this very attractive solid bronze star dated - 6, awarded by Khedive Tewfik of Egypt to those who were awarded the Egypt medal for the Egypt campaign of to This one comes in excellent original condition and unnamed as issued.
A scarce sword used by a trooper of the Imperial German cavalry. The Hilt has a heavy steel basket guard, this is heavily pitted, a shaped composite grip with a steel pommel. The blade is beautiful, a straight unfullered blade with a pipe back, this was a short-lived design on cavalry blades. This blade has no damage or pitting, just slight wear. The makers mark is a bit worn but it can still be seen, it reads; E. A very good 19th century German maker, known especially for his hunting hangers. The scabbard is also good, just a couple of dents, no hanger rings but a single frog loop is to be found at the top of the scabbard.
Ohio volunteer infantry to attend a re-union in , comes in very good condition just a hand written number on the back and has not been postally used. Ray skin grip bound with coper wire. I think this is a lovely old sword which was probably sent for a new blade when the sword was, either passed down to a son, or the original owner was recalled when war broke out in The condition does confirm this; the steel blade has lovely old patination, a heavy crust of just natural dirt and grime, no rust.
The grip has been redone, again a long time ago, probably in the WW1 era. The blade is in lovely condition, it, again has dark patination but the etching is still lovely and deep with no wear, this will clean up really well, if inclined.
There is no sign of rust or pitting anywhere on the blade, and you can see it has been fitted to the hilt for a very long time.
The scabbard is the original Victorian field leather type with white metal throat and this is now very dark. Comes in good sharp condition. Other than the hole the token is in a very good detailed condition.
A very interesting piece of British history. It is in very good condition, slight wear to the surface, but these were in circulation for a long time, so most are often very worn.
British and Foreign Sailors Society was instrumental in the program of events for the Nelson Centennial. VII, to be stamped on the souveniers. This example is made from the copper from the Victory and from the Foudroyant, Nelsons flagship from the very early 's it is set in a shield shaped medallion and shows the Victory to one side and the society details on the other.
The inner coin measures 16mm and the shield is 33mm long. Comes in very good condition and stands Indian general service medal with the North West Fronteer , correctly named to Gunner. The first was the Pashtun uprising, a band of Mohmand tribesmen rebelling on the Indian border and the other similar but later in the year.
They moved annually across the border to the hills of Afghanistan to escape the summer heat, in the main road or track, the Mohinand-Gandab Road was under repair and the tribsmen had no way to get through, so around tribesmen started killing and marauding in the plains that surrounded the area. In September a reconnaissance force southwest of Nahakki was ambushed, with 35 deaths of British and Indian officers and men. The medal is in very good order with some contact marks on the rim, so it looks like it was mounted with other medals at some point, but the medal itself is clean and still full of detail on both sides.
It has a good working suspender and the clasp is properly attached; it comes on a full length of original ribbon. The style of this medal was changed almost on a yearly basis and is made from a white metal, it measures 1. Albert Pratten was born and raised in Canning Town East London around ; before he joined the rifle brigade in he was working as a general labour on the docks.
He was still serving with the regiment when the war broke out in , having returned from posting in Egypt and malta; the 1st battalion the Rifle Brigade were one of the first regiments to mobilise ready for war, they arrived in France at Le Havre with the 4th division on 23rd August But our old soldier Albert Pratten was a survivor; it must have seemed without rest bite that his battalion was then ordered to Marne, the battle started on the 6th September Here it was up to the allies to suspend the German advance towards Paris, there was a fortunate break in the German line and the Allies were quick to respond, but still heavily outnumbered by the advancing army, the day was saved on 7 September by the aid of 6, French reserve infantry troops ferried from Paris in streams of taxi cabs.
Needless to say that Albert was active in most of the actions that 4th division undertook; we look forward now passed the 2nd battle of Ypres to the start of July , the early days of the stalemate, the 1st RB was employed on the front line in occasional trench raids and small sorties with other regiments of the division.
On the 6th July a major trench raid was planned and was carried out to some degree of success; the 1st battalion Rifle Brigade along with the 1st SLI and assisted by a battery of artillery raided the German trenches near the village of Pilkem. The wear-a-bouts of his South African pair is unknown; here is his well-earned WW1 trio which comes with copies of his service records and medal index card.
All three medals are in excellent condition, there is a mistake on the naming on the star, it is named to Private E Pratten, so there are two medal index cards, one, for E Pratten, the more comprehensive card and two, for Albert Pratten, just showing medal entitlement as the pair, but I have been backwards and forwards with his name, number and regiment and I can confirm, both are the same man, never rectified because he never complained about the miss-naming.
The Mons bar looks like a replacement, but an old one and it has been on the star for a very long time. A wonderful long serving soldier, just missing out of a Military Medal for Gallantry in the Field. Edward Bishop first landed on French soil on 7th October The 4th battalion was raised in Parkhurst Isle of Wight. Under command of 9th Brigade, 3rd Division.
From here the 4th battalion moved on to Ypres, again in attempt to outflank the enemy, but it soon became a desperate epic fight east of the city of Ypres which finally results in stalemate and entrenched warfare. During the early part of the 9th brigade was attached to 28th Division between 17 February and 2 April and moved to concentrate in the area between Bailleul and Hazebrouck. For Derek, saw him in action at 2nd Ypres, the first attack on Bellewaarde, the actions of Hooge and the second attack on Bellewaarde, the latter was made in support of the opening attack in the Battle of Loos.
Somewhere during these actions, Derek was wounded, he was discharged due to wounds received on 13th March Apart from the above information, no detailed research has been done on this man.
Along with the medal come two original photographs of Derek in uniform with his pals and what is believed to be his cap badge. It is also believed that Derek Bishop originated from Sussex. All now come mounted on card for display or safe storage along with a copy of his medal index card. A wonderful star with contemporary copy bar and original silver rose, correctly named to; Lance Corporal Robert Hawkswood.
The first Battalion initially served in the 20th Infantry Brigade, 7th Division landing at Zeebrugge on 7th October From here they went to Ypres and settled just southeast of the town, and went into their battle on the 19th. The guards suffered catastrophic casualties at this battle; all but four officers and men of the 1st Battalion remained.
Robert Hawkswood died on 20th October He is now remembered with honour at the Ypres Menin Gate Memorial. I have not gone into much detail in regards to the battle, I have included a copy of the battalion war diary on CD rom, so you can go through it yourself. The battalion war diary was not written while they were engaged in battle, a report was written by the commanding officer much later in The medal is in excellent condition and it has a nice even tone.
It comes with various copy documents, medal index card, medal roll, commonwealth war graves details etc. A very sad early casualty, one of the first losses of the 1st battalion Grenadier Guards.
Less than a month later he was dead, killed in action at the First Battle of Ypres on 20th October The Grenadier Guards suffered catastrophic casualties at this battle, all but four officers and men of the 1st Battalion Firstly the medals, there is a spelling mistake to his surname on the star, his name is spelled without the 'H' Calligan, but on the BWM and Victory it is correct; therefore he has two medal index cards which confirms the mistake, so it is an official mistake, so to speak.
Thomas Callighan was born, lived and enlisted in Dundee Scotland. His medal index card states he served in the Balkans campaign as a driver with the 18th Field Ambulance, but 18th were stationed in France for the whole of the war, he probably arrived in France on 8th of August with the 18th FA but was transferred to the one of the army service corps motor ambulance convoys going out to Salonika in the Autumn of Here Callaghan would have collected the worst of the wounded that could travel from the field ambulances and clearing stations, and by convoy, take the wounded to a general hospitals in northern Greece, 16 corps headquarters at Kirechkoi; Greece was mostly neutral during the war but its military and government had sympathisers for both sides.
In the late summer and early autumn of the hospitals were at full to bursting capacity, now having to deal with the Spanish Flu epidemic which raged for three months and filled three-quarters of the cemetery in Kirechkoi. Without doubt Callighan, now promoted to lance Corporal would have been present at one of the hospitals at this time, delivering wounded and soldiers which had contracted the disease, unfortunately he succumbed to the flu himself and despite the best efforts of the nursing staff he died on 19th September All three medals are in very good condition and come mounted on card for safe storage or display.
A wonderful medal for research and included with her medal comes a lovely period silver and enamel ribbon bar for the star, pin missing, a copy of her medal index card, this states she served in France from 26th October and her Red Cross service index cards. The index cards also confirm her date of going overseas and her return as 25th May This medal comes in excellent original condition and has a nice even dark tone. On the 21st of November they received orders to set off for Italy to fight Austrian forces.
Here the Division relieved 7th Division to hold the front line sector at the Montello Netween 1st and 16th March. It then moved west, to the Asiago sector and took part in the fighting on the Asiago Plateau in June, the battle of the Vittoria Veneto.
They finished the war in Trissino in the November and were finally demobilised in the February of Private Bird survived the war, a lucky one amongst very heavy casualties the battalion took on the western front.
This trio comes mounted as worn and look to have been worn with pride on many occasions. The ribbons are scruffy and the medals, although in good condition, have contact marks to the rim.
A nice trio of medals to a very interesting regiment. Apart from medal index car, medal roll and silver war badge list, included no other research has been done on this man. William was a regular soldier, he enlisted into the artillery in June He served in France from 27th August , a gunner with heavy howitzers, he would have been employed firing large calibre high explosive shells in high trajectory, destroying the enemy artillery, as well as putting destructive fire down on strongpoints, dumps, store, roads and railways behind enemy lines.
The usual armaments used were 6 inch, 8 inch and 9. Due to their destructive power, they themselves were an important target to be destroyed by enemy fire and they were often targeted by bomber aircraft.
William Boltwood was discharged with wounds in March What is believed to be his original Royal Artillery brass cap badge and shoulder badges. The medals are in very good original condition, the victory medal, still retains some of its original gilt finish and all medals look like they have never been mounted or worn, they are heavily tone and there is no sign that they have ever been polished.
Just a nice untouched lot. Carnarvon was transferred to the South Atlantic two months later and assigned to the squadron that destroyed the German East Asia Squadron at the Battle of the Falklands.
She was assigned to the North America and West Indies Station in and continued to patrol against German raiders and escort convoys to the end of the war. This trio comes with copies of the front page of his service papers and mounted on card ready for display or safe storage. William Graystone was born in Gorleston-on-Sea, Norfolk around , at the age of 17, his father, also Robert was a manager of a steam fishing company, in Great Yarmouth.
Robert enlisted in to the 4th territorial battalion the Norfolk regiment in They both formed part of the rd Brigade, 54th East Anglian Division. The 4th stayed in Gallipoli never really leaving the Suvla bay area,they took part in all the localised actions before being evacuated to Mudros in late November. They had suffered quite heavy losses at Gallipoli along with their sister battalion the Sandringham Coy, the latter getting all the publicity because it was connected to the royal estate, the 4th only officers and men remained.
William survived the Gallipoli campaign and arrived at Alexandria on the18th December, the division then slowly moved on and concentrated at Sidi Bishr.
The battalion then had a very welcomed rest before moving on to Cairo and then on to occupy the southern section of the Suez canal defences. At the end of October the division moved to Beirut until the end of the war. It was amazing that William survived the war, having been involved in Gallipoli where a large percentage of his brigade were killed or wounded and the worst battles of the Palestine campaign.
He returned home to to his beloved Gorleston where he spent he rest of his life, he sadly passed a way in December Private Thomas first entered the theatre of war on 11th December in Egypt. He survived the war and he was discharged on 8th March This trio of WW1 medal comes mounted as worn and in very good original condition, showing very little wear, the victory medal still retains all of its original gilt finish.

This aluminium tinny has 'Deutsche Jugendfest ' around the Nazi eagle and Swastika, comes in very good condition and measures 1.

After the DRL's institution, all other German sport associations gradually lost their freedom, and were appointed into the DRL; even the most prestigious ones, like the German Football Association lost their independence. The goal was to build a formidable Nazi sports body to which all German sports associations would be submitted.
It was thought that physical exercise would improve the morale and productivity of German workers as well as making sports a source of national pride for the Germans. Sporting skills were made a condition for school graduation as well as a necessary qualification for certain jobs and admission to universities.

A superb and scarce lot comprising of enamel badge, sports shirt insignia and pass book all relating to the Nationalsozialistische Frauenschaft or the German National Socialist Women's League. This was the women's wing of the Nazi Party. It was founded in October as a fusion of several nationalist and National Socialist women's associations, which survived until the end of WW2.
The purpose of the organisation was to promote the principles of the Nazi party that applied to the women of the day, but during the war, it helped to raise money for the war effort and the ladies themselves helped out in hospitals, factories and even gave out cups of tea and coffee to the returning wounded at railway stations and knitted woolen garments for the men on the eastern front. The enamelled badge, probably the most common thing found from this organisation these days, it has a small area of damage to the enamel.
The rare sports shire insignia is in mint condition and unused; as is the pass book. This is covered with brown linin and has a organisation badge printed to the front.

She was transferred to the Mediterranean Sea in January , to participate in the Dardanelles Campaign and fight in major attacks on the Ottoman coastal fortifications defending the Dardanelles in March During these operations, Albion was damaged by Ottoman artillery twice, so in October , she was transferred to Salonika to support the Allied operations against Bulgaria through then-neutral Greece.
