3x KC holder von Werra + signature
Three pictures of knights cross Holder Baron Franz von Werra with personal signature attached to the back of one picture. Von Werra was famous for escaping from a canadian POW camp early in the war. After his stay in the US he went to mexico, south America, Spain and got back to Germany from there. Hitler awarded him the KC for this action and he became a well known figure. His story was written down and later on turned into a movie. He was also known for having a pet lion called Simba.
Sadly von Werra had a flight accident in near Vlissingen(Netherlands) which he did not survive. Due to the short period back in Germany after his escape his signature is rare and sought after. Good addition for the advanced signature or LW pilot collection.
