DAK Ring

Just inherited a DAK ring, it came from my nana, who got it from her dad. He didnt serve during the war, but his brother did serve throughout the Africa campaign, he was wounded at El alamein. He returned to his unit(gordon highlanders) after a month in hospital. He was killed a few days into the sicily campaign 20th July 1943 near sferro. He was 27yrs old. This ring was sent to the family together with other personal belongings.

Re: DAK Ring

Not a pattern I've seen before but looks original. Very highly collectable items - especially with the provenance.
Many Thanks, Lammy.

Re: DAK Ring

Thank you.! I have seen one more, on warrelics.eu. Exactly the same except the camels face the opposite direction. Also with good provenance.!

Re: DAK Ring

I asked my "Lord of the Rings" friend from war relics forum about this ring and he directed me on this website: http://www.germaniainternational.com/africacorps.html
Looks to be one of those fakes they are selling on that website.
