Silberne Medaille für Rettung awarded to Swedish hero!

Bought these nice items from a nice lady in Helsingborg yesterday. The lot comes from the home of a Swedish captain that saved some German sailors that got shipwrecked in 1911 and thanks to this was awarded the silver medal and a pair of binoculars with a dedication plaque.

The extra two pairs of binoculars also comes from the captains estate.
