    Interested in all aspects of the Imperial German Army machine guns and in particular the MG08 and MG08/15. Attempting to collect one example of all ground accessories and wpns/items to both those maxims.

  1. Chip understood. Now I need the Moderator to tell me how they wish me to clean up all those redundant posts! Mark
  2. Time Left: 15 days and 3 hours

    • FOR SALE

    Extensive collection of WWI RFC and very early RAF collection of trench art, silks, pictures and porcelain. I can send a link as there are too many pieces - I have to put a price in the box otherwise the advert will not publish, but GBP7k was the auction house evaluation. So GBP7k ONO. Mark


  3. As with MG08, as soon as the Photobucket entries are removed this will again try and add value to the MG08/15 enthusiast. Mark
  4. Moderator is looking at how to remove all these Photobucket 'entries'. Once cleaned I will get back to re-energising MG08 & MG08/15 complimenting 'grips of death'. Mark
  5. Nice view of the sled mount range plate
  6. Nice collection MOTOJOSH. Just name your price :>)
  7. Firstly it is not an officers cap but a normal soldiers field cap. The lining inside the grey material is not original but sometimes soldiers in all nations would alter their kit. The oil black lining looks too stiff often seen in post 1920 Service caps despite the dates. Mark
  8. Although no longer owning any WWI British MGs (only collecting WWI German now) I thought some imagery might be of interest to the club.Still have the extensive library of manuals if of use though.

    • WANTED

    Best price paid for the MG08 maxim steam hose connectors that screw into the front end of the water jacket. Must be original please. Also looking for other parts. Thanks Mark


  10. Could the moderator please when you have time, remove my posts that have no images. The Image host site has gone so it will help the housekeeping of the thread Thanks. Mark
  11. ok thanks all for checking - but if possible if there is such a thing as a MG RF qualification badge that would be interesting. Mark
  12. Chip this particular postcard is not mine as people send me all sorts of MG images. I tried cropping and enhancing and it does not get much better! Did they have 'farrier' specialist badges or range finder qualification badges like the British? Mark
  13. Andy other experts speak a qualification badge for minenwerfer. I personally do not know but on another web site this was the agreed understanding. Mark
  14. If possible I am trying to id all patterns of 08/15 bipods. Any images of any unusual patterns outside of the main 3 are most welcome. Mark
