RARE LOT OF ORIGINAL DOCUMENTS AND PHOTOGRAPHS OF A MEMBER OF

ERWIN ROMMEL'S DEUTSCHES AFRIKAKORPS

THIS NCO PARTICIPATED IN THE SIEGE OF TOBRUK!

This interesting and hard to find lot of a member of the 'Heeresgruppe Afrika', the famous Afrikakorps commanded by Desert Fox Erwin Rommel consists of the following:

Wehrpass of Unteroffizier (NCO) Georg Nuesslein with many entries

Besitzzeugnis (Award Document) cuffband 'Afrika'

Award document for the War Merit Cross with swords 2nd Class

War Merit Cross 2nd Class

Eleven (11) original DAK photographs (not postwar reprints)

On 7 April 1944 he was awarded the 'Afrika' cuffband, almost one year after the remains of the Afrikakorps surrendered to the American and British troops in North Africa. The entry in his Wehrpass can be seen on one of the pictures below (left column).

From 3 May 1941 to 28 May 1941 he was in transit from Germany to North Africa. The following day he was assigned to a coastal defense battery. From 19 June 1941 to 1 August 1941 he participated in the siege of Tobruk (Tobruk and El Alamein are the two best known battles on North African soil during WWII). After that he went back to two more months of coastal defense in North Africa. After that he left the Afrikakorps and was assigned to coastal defense in Denmark where he stayed until the end of the war. Because he did not become a prisoner of war in Africa, the items offered here survived.
