Watch the video of Andy Robertshaw, Curator/Manager of The Royal Logistic Corps Museum in Deepcut, talking about Herbert Sulzbach’s Medals.

Herbert Sulzbach was a German Jew who served in the German Army during WW1 and was awarded the Iron Cross Second and First Class.

During the 1930s he fled Nazi persecution and settled in England.

In 1940 he volunteered for service in the British Army. Becoming a Captain in The Pioneer Corps he was in charge of several Prisoner of War camps. While serving at these camps he began his work actively promoting reconciliation between the two nations, for which he was made an OBE and received the European Cross of Peace.

Sulzbach left the British Army in 1948 and received these nine medals during the course of his life.
