Fallschirmjäger document grouping to Gefreiter Facklam, Sturm-Regiment
Impressive document grouping to Fallschirmjäger Andreas Facklam who served in 16. Kompanie, Sturm-Regiment 1. This unit took part in all the major campaigns in 1940 and 1941 including Norway, the Netherlands and Crete. The document grouping consists of a large EKII, EKI and Ostmedaille document. He was awarded the EKII and EKI short after eachother whilst the unit fought in Crete. The EKII document was signed by Generalmajor u. Rgt. Kommandeur Eugen Meindl. The EKI document was signed by General der Flieger Kurt Student. Interesting detail is that the EKII and EKII were awarded a mere 10 days between each other proving his worth in his unit. The group is a very interesting and in my opinion very hard to find set which would be very hard to upgrade!
