NSDAP ORTSGRUPPE (TOWN) FLAG OF THE TOWN ROSENTHAL

CAPTURED 31 MARCH 1945 BY PLATOON SGT. RAYMOND RITTER FROM 3RD PLATOON 99TH RECON UNIT

FULL MONEY BACK GUARANTEE FOR AUTHENTICITY

Here is the rare opportunity to purchase an original 55 x 50 inch or 1450x1250mm double sided flag which has been the official NSDAP Ortsgruppe banner of the German town Rosenthal in the Gau Hessen near the city of Kassel. The flag has silver fringes on three sides, the fourth side contains seven loops where it was attached to the pole. This type of flag is also documented in the Organisationsbuch der NSDAP. The flag was taken down on March 31, 1945 by Platoon Seargant Raymond Ritter who served in the 3rd Platoon 99th Cavalry Reconnaissance Troop of the famous 99th Infantry Division, the most decorated platoon for a single action of World War Two! The 99th Infantry Division played a key role in the Battle of the Bulge, then moved over the Rhine river at Remagen on 11 March 1945. Two weeks later Ritter's recon platoon arrived in the small town Rosenthal where he captured the NSDAP town flag that is now offered for sale! He shipped it home as a war souvenir and it was kept in a dry safe place in the family home ever since! The flag has seen some action, has a couple rips and holes, some of them appear to be either bullet holes or shrapnel damage. A true historic artifact which of course comes with a full money-back guarantee for authenticity.

The 99th Recon Troop stayed for five days (March 31 to April 4, 1945) in Rosenthal
