  1. Dante I believe there is original footage of soldiers using this type of phone, even generals maybe Ludendorff barked into yours back when lol! Eric
  2. Hello My former issue feldgrau tunic to this regiment was dated 1908 unfortunately i no longer have images, interestingly the shoulder boards were square top not pointed. Eric
  3. I like the zinc job Chris does it have the ration marks and spork shelf ? There was a trans period the collectors on the French Forum have some beauties. Eric
  4. I owned one from .de sorry I didn't like it and gave it away, they show from time to time and always mint. The leather stamping,s and copper rivets? think I paid 30 bucks for it. Bavarian Frog has a necktie front in my opinion and are quite scarce. Eric
  5. Nice Chris whenever I got a tunic I couldn't resist trying it on, always amazed at the quality even with the issue jobs back then. Eric
  6. These are kind of neat and not that easy to find in good condition this one I passed along to a friend, sometimes they pop up on ebay.de. a matchbox protector. Eric
  7. Blooming heck! another Chris wait and see job, btw on the title question whats Chip look like I've never seen the old duffer in person. Eric
  8. Underground bunker, has three 'rooms' hope you like it, over the last 18yrs its got a bit rough but still holding up. gigs are fun once you're in the period zone mentally or just plain nuts. Eric
  9. Nice Chris how about getting some period photos and having them blown to large posters, I've seen it before looks very dramatic doesn't matter if they covered a bit, like a wall paper backdrop. Eric
  10. Jock No its just the way the carrier was made.
  11. I like everything though, so what if Jerry used a normal carrier. Chip I didn't keep a record of the markings sorry me loose jobs without carriers I sold to Bunker. I think they used them to pretty much level the gun in the field myself, cutting bushes whatever. Eric
  12. The carrier on the mg shovel is incorrect, its for a standard e-tool. Eric
  13. Nice photos Those early issue mantels [104th Saxon] complete with boards and collar patches, have to be the rarest uniform items I've only luckily owned one 30yrs ago. It was very expensive for the day $1700 ! [Württemberg] I may have seen one in the IWM London but can't remember if it had patches or not [red]. Eric
  14. Nice buttons but I think you'd need the loops Chip are yours sewn on? Eric
