MV Gustloff Lapel Pin



 This is a sad story which can be read on Wikipedia.....or check out  the online Museum -
    www.wilhelmgustloffmuseum.com
She was carrying evacuated civilians, military personnel and officials.....it was the largest loss of life in a single ship sinking in history.....just under 9,400 went down on her.
This was not a military ship...it was a cruise liner..... This ship's job was to transport evacuees...period.

This ships wheel lapel pin was from happier times in Germany....

 The pin came to me via a lady that found my original website, her father was an Administration Officer in the Kriegsmarine....and had willed her a box of memorabilia.....which she did not want to keep.
