EK Medals?

Post by Raiseth » Tue Dec 06, 2005 7:45 pm

Anyone know how many EK1 & II's were awarded? EKIIs were a 'Gedunk' Medal (Navy slang for freebie). Thanks all,

Bill, if you want to buy yourself something absolutley fantastic for Christmas, buy yourself The Iron Time A History of the Iron Cross, by S.J. Previtera as Herr Reservist1 has mentioned. It is absolutely superb.
