  1. Hi Chris Great link both for the tale of their fate and the site as a whole.... plenty for all. Nice one tony
  2. Ah! It's a camera. That's what I spotted too... I thought it a presentation box. nice one tony
  3. Nice one GreyC do you think the lucky fella between the two ladies is holding a presentation box containing a medal/award? perhaps the reason for the drinks? tony PS just 2 little pics from google.. you can see one of the towers still standing....
  4. Hi Chris yes I think you're right... after an evening of near misses swinging it round at my mums house it doesn't see to have the weight or the design for 'serious work'. But sure is fun anyway..... tony
  5. Hi Gents, Well it's here.... Solidly made and, although I wouldn't want to get hit with it, I'd say it might be more thench art than trench club perhaps. The length is excessive for a club but having said that, it swings great, hits hard and has a spike! so would have done a job. the leather is in 6 or so seperate pieces of various thickness and colours that are wrapped and glued around a bar that flexes. the leather is tapered and stops just under the bullets although the bar continues and then the cartridges are 'welded' around the bar. The coin provides the finishing touch. It has some wear.There is a slight kink halfway. When held two handed this is where it's held. If any of you have seen anything similar or have any thoughts on it please do. hope you like it tony
  6. Hi Gents no Red Cross uniforms but... perhaps the back is more interesting than the front?(I can't read it btw...) tony
  7. Hi Gents i had only just received this and hadn't noticed the collars on the others! It was only as Andreas said founded in 1922 that I noticed . nice one. thanks both. this pic may be tiny bit better? Again thanks for your comments Gents tony PS hoping if I look through my existing photos again I'll spot a few more of these fellas.....
  8. Hi Tobias good to see them side by side A great looking pair..... tony
  9. Hi Gents I got this the other day the seller said he's wearing a Red Cross medal. tony
  10. Hi Gents this fella is at the post office. I'm collecting it Monday........ Just 35 quid on eBay. And it's mine now! -------//:-/-----// Apparently: It's 33inches long It's coiled leather. (Flexes ?) I think from looking at the pics the pointed end diameter might be less than the heavy end perhaps tapered that way. What do make of it Gents ? It was advertised as an Officers swagger stick im hoping its a bit more than that. i will update with my own pics on Monday when I pick it up... Fingers Crossed please Gents tony
  11. Hi again Gents perhaps it would help if I get the details? I'll find out post them asap... tony
  12. Complete Adrian helmet and a few medals.

    Hi Horst glad you like it there is something about them I agree. I couldn't resist this one, it was a good price because it's too small for most- Including me but who cares - looks great! tony
