  6. Dear All, I just was offered a Portuguese VM and tried to ID it, but have to admit that I'm a little confused by the different types. It looks somewhat like Reproduction type-4? I would be very thankfull for your advice!
  7. I just googled "deutschbein gmbh" INCLUDING the quotation marks. About the J/I matter: Remeber the problems so many people have with ID (Infantrie Division) wich appear as JD on german dogtags.

  9. Dear colleagues, in behalve of the daugther of one of this soldiers, I'm trying to find out more. Since my knowledge of details regarding british/commonwealth uniforms is quite limited, I need help establishing the nationality of these two. She belives the picture is taken in northern Germany during the early months/years of occupation after WW2. That would make them Brits/Canadians (or maybe Belgians?). Any input on this would be appreciated greatly. yours Auseklis

    Another mystery item from a field in Germany

    Hi Ata, If've seen it on Facebook already. Thanks again! Great work. One might think this is a 1920s Rudolph Valentino related "arab romantic" bijoux belt buckle.
  12. The hallmark seems to be from Chester for the year 1900. The makers mark is difficult. It might be: E & F.B. - Emil & Frank Bauer, Jewellers, Albion Street, Birmingham
  13. Very nice items Iver! Especialy the Polish Legion!

    Another mystery item from a field in Germany

    Thanks for helping with the translation, Demir! It is from a field near Berge (Nauen), were during WW1 a POW camp for russians was located. The POWs were employed to disperse the houshold garbage from Berlin on the surrounding fields. Houshold garbage back than was 80% organic waste, so it made sense to try use it as fertilizer. This continued until the late 1920s. Many smaler metal objects turn up there. I had another item from this region up for identification here: http://gmic.co.uk/index.php/topic/59792-stgeorgeish-looking-cross-what-is-it/

    I can provide better pictures if needed. By the size I was thinking about something horse related too. I hope Demir can help!

    Another mystery item from a field in Germany

    I recived the item today. It is made of thin brass, very nicely done. Even if it is not military (but it looks sort of offical to me), I would be glad, if someone could translate the inscription.
  18. Deutsche Kinderschar - Age 6-10 Jungvolk (as part of the HJ) - Age 10-14 Hitlerjugend - Age 14+
  19. Indeed. It's from the city of Aachen, the local group "Westpark" for the living quarters surrounding this particular park.
  20. No, that's Iran. Since Germans don't like the meaning of the name Iran, many still use Persien.
  21. A Bundeswehr soldier would get quite a lot of trouble for attaching this to anything else than his pyjama...
