Small award document and photo grouping to Matrosen-Hauptgefreiter Egon Opp. After training in Belgium (Beverlo) and Germany (Kiel) in Spring 1941, he served on board of the Sperrbrecher 13 (ex-Minerva) with base in Aarhus, Denmark in 1941-'42. From 1943, he served on a destroyer on the Italian front. He ended the war back in the Denmark area, presumably on the Minensuchboot M-610 which was layed down in Rostock, April 1945 (notice the pencil inscription on the Marinefrontspange document). The grouping consists of:
- Award document for the Kriegsabzeichen für Minensuch-, Ubootsjagd- und Sicherungsverbände, June 1942, original pencil signature of Vizeadmiral Hans Stohwasser, Knight's Cross winner. Very good condition, punched, not folded.
- Award document for the Eisernes Kreuz 2. Klasse, for service on a destroyer on the Mediterranean, February 1944, with facsimile signature of Konteradmiral Wilhelm Meendsen-Bohlken, Knight's Cross winner. Very good condition, punched, not folded.
- Award document for the uncommon Marinefrontspange in Bronze, May 1945, by the 8. Sicherungsdivision. Some tears inside the stamp and on the right side. Punched, not folded.
- Nine photos of Egon Opp, mostly taken during his wedding in Köln.
