    "Jungs holt fast", or "Young Men, Hold Fast" pin by Ges. gesch Friedrich Linden of Lüdenscheid. Possibly 1920s and related, maybe, to Felix Graf von Luckner, a very interesting German captain/pirate in WW1 who (among having in his piracy killed [accidentally at that] only one of the people on several boats he took) was also shipwrecked, stranded, and escaped a POW camp.

    Question is, what was this for?

      That is where I got my info, but he never got his answer either.

      Rostock Yacht Club has been mentioned.

      Von Luckner did several speaking tours in the US and Europe. This was probably one of the souvenirs he created along the way.
