Moritz commented on Sniper Badge, I Class
Is it true wearing one of these was equal to a death sentence if the wearer was caught by the enemy?

Moritz commented on Lappland Shield
The Lappland Shield has always been a decoration I have had a soft spot for. I think it's because they were all awarded after the end of the war, in POW camps, made out of anything and everything that was available to them at the time. That level of dedication, even after the war was lost, and the need to have their achievements recognised when there wasn't any more glory to be won, has always fascinated me from a psychological standpoint.

Moritz commented on German Cross, in Gold, by C. E. Juncker
The German Cross has such a bold, beautiful design! ... The swastika is a bit of a problem these days, of course ... Too much baggage that comes with that symbol. But honestly, the 1957 version just doesn't have quite the same feel to it.

Moritz commented on Honour Roll Clasp, Kriegsmarine/Navy
I enjoy seeing rare awards like this one. Last year I was lucky enough to be shown one of these and hold it in my hands. It really makes you appreciate the historical value of these seldom awarded decorations.

Cool to know about the different colored ribbons. I love reading about VC recipients! Does anyone have any resources to share?
