Please see the e-mail received from fkarno below:-

"I have very recently bought what I think is a piece of mess silver of a Luftwaffe squadron. It is a small silver cup (84mm high x 65mm across the rim) engraved with a list of names, "3.(F)/122" and the date "23.2.1943 - "; a space has been left for a second date. The cup was made in the Netherlands by Van Kempen and is hall marked for the year 1918. It has been dreadfully bashed-about and dented but it could easily be restored but for the time being I am leaving it as it is, until I know a bit more about it. This is the cup:


and these are the names engraved on the cup, in 5 rows:

Oblt Blankenhan
Oblt Salecker
Hptm Otto
Stabsarzt Dr Leitner
Hptm Gruhle
Oblt Küppers
Oblt Goldberg

Oblt Riemer
Oblt Wuttke
Oblt Schultz
Hptm Gruschke
Lt Hemmer
Lt Högl
Lt Seubert
Lt Mollekopf
Lt Ziegler

Lt Joseph
Oblt Saile
Hptm Wieser
Oblt Asmus
Lt Listing
Oblt Hupka
Lt Kasper
Oblt Krebs
Lt Ruttloff

Lt Kolbeck
Lt Lauter
Lt Baumann
Lt Wischerath
Lt Eilers
Lt Kurzinna
Lt Rau
Oblt Müller

Oblt König
Oblt Vieker
Obzm Milbratz

If you want to publish any of this on your website, be my guest. Do you perhaps know of a veteran of this squadron who might know something about this cup? I should say that I am very interested in history and particularly in military history, but I am by no means a Luftwaffe aficionado, and there is no way I would have anything to do with Nazi memorabilia. I always thought that the Luftwaffe was not strongly Nazi, and indeed I am pleased to see that one of the names on the cup is that of an Oberleutnant Goldberg!"

Please see the photo also published here - a number of the personnel in this listing appear in the 3./122 Personnel listing on the main site and also appear in Andy Fletcher's DKiG listing. But if anyone is able to provide additional information about this cup and the personnel listed, we would appreciate it.
