1.  photos -  British WWII COMMANDO POW Grouping - DUNKIRK + Captured ST NAZAIRE RAID- Stalag VIIIB
Very rare grouping to a British COMMANDO. He was captured while participating in a raid on ST NAZAIRE on March 28, 1942 , also known as OPERATION CHARLOT.

St Nazaire was targeted because the loss of its dry dock would force any large German warship in need of repairs, such as the Bismarck's sister ship Tirpitz, to return to home waters via either the English Channel or the GIUK gap, both of which were heavily defended by British units including the Royal Navy's Home Fleet, rather than having a haven available on the Atlantic coast in Nazi-occupied France. The obsolete destroyer HMS Campbeltown, accompanied by 18 smaller craft, crossed the English Channel to the Atlantic coast of France and was rammed into the Normandie dock gates. The ship had been packed with delayed-action explosives, well hidden within a steel and concrete case, that detonated later that day, putting the dock out of service for the remainder of the war and up to five years after.
A force of commandos landed to destroy machinery and other structures. Heavy German gunfire sank, set ablaze, or immobilised virtually all the small craft intended to transport the commandos back to England. The commandos fought their way through the town to escape overland. Many surrendered when they ran out of ammunition or were surrounded by the Wehrmacht defending Saint-Nazaire.
Of the 611 men who undertook the raid, 228 returned to Britain, 169 were killed and 215 became prisoners of war.
The operation has been called The Greatest Raid of All within British military circles
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/St_Nazaire_Raid
 
His discharge certificate inside his playbook confirms he was a POW from 28.3.42 to 3.6.45. Apparently, he was also sent to Norway for a time in POW camp before transfer to Stalag VIIIb. He was also at DUNKIRK in 1940. His discharge also confirms he was with Commandos from April 1940 to Aug 1945. Also comes with a photo of him in Stalag VIIIb sent to his family with official Stalag stamps. Also comes with his War Medal and 39-45 Star.

105. photos - RARE Philippine Constabulary Photo Album + PHILIPPINE SCOUTS
Hundreds of original photos.  Named to H.M. WARD. Dates from 1913-16.  Well captioned throughout.

The Philippine Constabulary (PC) was established on August 18, 1901, under the general supervision of the civil Governor-General of the Philippines, by authority of Act. No. 175 of the Second Philippine Commission, for the purpose of maintaining peace, law, and order in the various provinces of the Philippine Islands.[2] By the end of 1901, a total of 180 officers had been commissioned.[3]
The constabulary assisted the United States military in combating the remaining irreconcilable revolutionaries following the March 23 capture of General Emilio Aguinaldo and his 1 April pledge of allegiance to the United States. This phase of the Philippine–American War ended in Luzon by 1906, with the surrender and execution of one of its last remaining generals, Macario Sakay.
Continued disorder and brigandry prompted Governor-General William Howard Taft to maintain the PC to combat insurgents. Captain Henry T. Allen of the 6th U.S. Cavalry, a Kentucky-born graduate of West Point (Class 1882), was named as the chief of the force, and was later dubbed as the "Father of the Philippine Constabulary". With the help of four other army officers, Captains David Baker, W. Goldsborough, H. Atkinson, and J.S. Garwood, Captain Allen organized the force, trained, equipped and armed the men as best as could be done at the time. Although the bulk of the officers were recruited from among U.S. commissioned and non-commissioned officers, two Filipinos qualified for appointment as 3rd Lieutenants during the first month of the PC: Jose Velasquez of Nueva Ecija and Felix Llorente of Manila. Llorente retired as a Colonel in 1921 while Velasquez retired as Major in 1927.

110. photos - WWII Air Medal & Purple Heart Grouping- KIA OPERATION VARSITY - March 24, 1945 - GERMAN SNIPER KIA!
Original wartime government engraved AIR MEDAL & PURPLE HEART grouping to Cpl. Elmer A. MILCHAK (ASN: 33706583). He was KIA on March 24, 1945 while flying as Right Waist Gunner on a mission with in B-24 42-50709 of the 392nd Bomb Group, 576th Bomb Squadron. This was a mission to drop supplies to troops in support of OPERATION VARSITY! He is buried in Netherlands American Cemetery in Maegraten, E31. the Pilot of this mission, John Hummel, received the DFC for staying with the plane and crash-landing it in a German forest near Wesel and was captured.
"As we approached the drop area, we found that there was considerable smoke or haze covering the area. We began getting a little small arms fire during the supply drop run, for we could hear it hitting the plane. our Radio Operator, James Deaton, stood at the entrance of the bomb bay, waiting for the drop, so he could enter and pull the static lines. We made our drop. At the time of our drop we had slowed our air speed and with 2 engines out at this speed we could not gain altitude. Jack picked out the first field he could find, which also contained the remains of some gliders, so we could make a controlled crash. Elmer Milchak had been killed as he was coming out the waist window of the plane. He was the first one out after the crash.” [According to an account by co-pilot 2/Lt Reynolds in The Liberators Who Never Returned]

111. photos - WWI German Aviation Photo Grouping - WWI  Aviator HAUPT-HEYDEMARCK
Amazing grouping, all from the estate of famous WWI Flieger, Georg Wilhelm Haupt-Heydemarck.  Upon joining the Imperial German Air Service, Georg Wilhelm Haupt-Heydemarck trained as an observer and served on the Western Front with Feld Flieger Abteilung 17 (FFA 17), a 2-seater observation squadron, flying numerous combat missions against the French during 1915 and 1916.  Haupt-Heydemarck completed his service in FFA 17 in December 1916 and transferred to FFA 30 in Macedonia. He arrived in Macedonia in February 1917 and was made acting leader of the unit.   He was also famous after the war for the numerous books he wrote on WWI aviation. These are all photos from his personal estate, which he acquired directly from famous WWI aviators or their families (if deceased) that were used in his publications - several even gave them childhood photos of the men! He knew all these people personally and, what is particularly interesting, he was able to caption the reverse of the photos with their exact recollections of the events of the photos - crashes, planes they shot down, personalities, etc. The grouping also comes with photo copies of all of Haupt-Heydemarck's WWI award documents (I am working on the originals as well as his personal photo albums) and an original copy of his book Feldflieger ueber Mazedonien with personal corrections he made. the photos come in various envelopes, each listing the aviator and details in his own hand; the reverse of each photo provides further details:

163. photos - WWII Officially Engraved Purple Heart - Counter Intelligence Corps Agent
Officially wartime government engraved Purple heart medal in original case. Named to Lt. Francis R. DONOVAN who served in the 1135th CIC Detachment, Philippines-Ryukyus Command.

The United States Army Counter Intelligence Corps (Army CIC) was a World War II and early Cold War intelligence agency within the United States Army consisting of highly trained Special Agents.
However the use of informants within the Army become politically controversial, and CIC was forced to curtail its activities. In particular, the CIC was ordered to cease its domestic investigations, to destroy its investigative records, and to ship its agents out to overseas theaters.[5] The reason for this sudden and unprecedented expulsion has never been clarified. One leading theory was expressed in the official history of the Corps, “the speed [of these events] left little doubt that someone—possibly Communists who still held key positions in government—was determined to halt CIC investigative activities in the United States.”[6] Another possible explanation is that the CIC mistakenly bugged the hotel room of Eleanor Roosevelt and incurred the President’s wrath. In any event, the CIC protected the investigative records it had so painstakingly accumulated. According to Sayer and Botting (p. 47) “When the command was given to cease any investigations of known or suspected Communists and destroy all files on such persons immediately, eight of the nine Corps Area Commanders took the remarkable step of disobeying this order.” According to the official history of the Corps, this information proved highly valuable in controlling communism: “the information acquired by CIC from May 1941 to September 1945 regarding communism and its adherents played a major part in keeping communism under control in the United States ever since.”[7]
In the European and Pacific theaters of operations CIC deployed detachments at all levels. These detachments provided tactical intelligence about the enemy from captured documents, interrogations of captured troops, and from para-military and civilian sources. They were also involved in providing security for military installations and staging areas, located enemy agents, and acted to counter stay-behind networks. They also provided training to combat units in security, censorship, the seizure of documents, and the dangers of booby traps. In some cases CIC agents such as Henry Kissinger found themselves acting as the de facto military government on the occupation of large towns before the arrival of Allied Military Government for Occupied Territories (AMGOT) officers. As the war in Europe came to a close, CIC were involved in the Operations Alsos, Paperclip and TICOM, searching for German personnel and research in atomic weapons, rockets and cryptography. Recruits after World War II included Klaus Barbie, also known as the 'Butcher from Lyon', a former Gestapo member and war criminal.
