  1. Guys, I thought these were interesting? Anyone any thoughts?
  2. Good effort Mate! Shame about the post cards as that is interesting enough in that context. Perhaps you can replace them with originals to preserve that aspect of the history?
  3. Guys, Got this one yesterday. I have never seen one this large, it would fit a 38 to 48 inch waist, he must have been a proper fat lad! Note the attachments for the shoulder strap so it is pre-dates 1939 although this one has no markings that I can see. jock
  4. Guys, Not sure what to think of these, they were with the bag of Brit boots but these are clearly German in appearance? They don't look fun to wear!
  5. Guys, What is the medal bar pair please? They look like they are silver? I like the Deschler Artillery pin to the 62nd. Sorry about the sideways pics but I can't seem to sort it, maybe because its my phone?
  6. did this sell? Is it still available? cheers
  7. Glad it is of interest! Shame about the young lad that almost made it through!
  8. Guys, My namesake here died of wounds sadly after the war at the tender age of 20. What a shame, what a waste. Unusual that his wound tag is with the paperwork? More, There is a pile of felpost from 43 till the end as well. I have only posted two as representative of the pile.

  10. There are many dealers I am sure. When you get in give marktcom.de a look this will give you a list of fleamarkets that are on in the area. You will need the postleitzahl (post code) it will then list them nearest to furthest. If you get the local free newspapers you can find house clearances (haushaltsaufloesung) where you can get lucky as well. I don't know Berlin but I bet there are more than a few dealers there. You can also search for recycle centres and scrap yards as they can be fun too, ask the people there what you are looking for as most of the time it is not advertised due to the negative vibes within Germany. Good luck and happy hunting!
  11. Guys, As stated above, nothing fancy though!

  17. Guys, Mystery item, my €1 punt for today. Small linen bag but it has the look and the smell of the period.
  18. Hucks, Would be nice if his plane turned up one day. You never know as they still search in Russia.
