Re: Loss of a Forum member, my brother

He was obviously a great family man and a man with a wonderful service career in the Navy. He passed way too soon. God bless.

I only have a 1911 copy and he is still listed in that regiment as a Lt. Brauer on page 221. No first name given.

Re: Blades, a German and a nice curved Belgian made, one.
