Approximately 6 inches tall, a silver plated goblet on the base of which is a dedication in Gothic script "Unter Uns Kreta" ("Among Us on Crete" or, more correctly for translation, "Together on Crete"). On the side of the goblet is a representation of the German paratrooper badge. The goblet was undoubtedly one of several created by the men of a fallschirmjaeger unit which fought in the battle for Crete as a memento of their service on the island. There is dark tarnish to the finish of the goblet but the dedication remains completely legible and could easily be cleaned.
